Building a TARDIS

So I had this strange idea to build my own TARDIS.

And this isn’t it. I’m not sure how mine is going to turn out. I really don’t know what I am doing when it comes to building projects. But I think I’m off to a good start.

I built one side of the police call box using 2 x 2s.

I metered the corners and used a nail gun to fasten them together. I then add L-brackets to stabilize and strengthen each corner joint.

The basic frame is a little bit shorter than the actual TARDIS. I wanted to make sure that I could store it in the basement so it stands at 57 inches.

It doesn’t look like much now, but it will soon. I hope.

I bought corrugated plastic that I will be using for the walls. I wanted a material that would be light so that I would be able to pick up the completed TARDIS and move it to different locations.

When this project is complete, I am thinking about shooting a Doctor Who fan film. It should be a lot of fun. I just hope the final project looks close enough to the actual TARDIS while being lightweight enough that it is portable.

  1. Wow! That is super creative using corrugate plastic for the walls. I never would have thought of that.
    How is it holding up?

  2. Hi Jeff,

    Making the roof of the TARDIS removable was another great idea. It allows two people to carry and move it easily. The model is holding up great. I am working on building the console room right now. I will be blogging about that soon. And this summer, I plan on making a short fan-film. Thanks for the comment!
