Weekend Project – Doctor Who Tiny Tardis Build Project

Doctor Who Tiny TARDIS build project.

I’ve seen a couple of photos of mini TARDIS builds around the interwebs before but didn’t really think about building it, but after seeing the TARDIS shrunk in Doctor Who Season 8 Flatline episode, I knew I had to build my own.

First step researching it’s dimensions, found a few references but then I found something better ~ a high quality TARDIS 3D model!  Rasmus Jürs made a  fantastic 3d Model of the Tardis ( 2016 Update Links to 3D model is dead. ). So I used his model and prepped and pepped the parts.

Tardis Pepakura – Basic pieces to build le TARDIS

  • 5 mm Thick foam board
  • Card stock
  • White glue
  • Hot glue
  • Plastic folder

I still haven’t figured out what to use for the lamp up top.

Few sloppy cuts on the angled corners, but nothing that can’t be fixed with a little wood filler.

Stuck a flashlight inside. It’s looking good so far, but I’m thinking of rebuilding the top to have space for proper LED lighting.


Update Febuary 4, 2015

The TARDIS is done and ready for space and time travel!
