Well, not so much “tardis” as “Metropolitan Police Box” but it is naturally beneath the dignity of the ol’ raincoaster blog to include “box” in a headline, bien sur and yew betcha.
From Sherrod Drawings, via Neatorama, here are the actual archictectural plans for the once-common, now consigned to sci-fi police box.
The first Police Boxes were introduced from America in 1888. The earliest Police Box resembling Drawing G/A1 was erected in Newcastle in 1929. Originally built of wood, the design had changed to reinforced concrete, weighing in around two & one-half tons…This set of plans will make a great present for those Dr Who Fans, or anyone interested in Architectural antiquities…
Thanks for this. I was thinking about a fire pit for the back yard, but I see no reason why I couldn’t build it to look like this.
It’s only the outside though. :(
Actually, if memory serves Bizarre mag had the interior as well. Try bizarremag.com. Do NOT try Bizarre.com, particularly as you’re on community connections most of the time. That would get you blacklisted ASAP.
Also, I have a firepit in my backyard and another on deck; they look like fire pits, like iron stoves, like chimneas, not like Tardii. If you do this, it would be fark-worthy. I call.
When are you starting the construction? Media outlets need three week’s lead time.
Have you got a blueprint for the chameleon chip?
I have reviews for the first two episodes on my site, if you are interested…
Let me know what you thought of the first two episodes.
Alas, the chameleon circuit doesn’t work, so I couldn’t disguise it as a fire pit or “chimnea”.
That’s how it’s spelled; I didn’t make up the word. It would have been funnier if I made it up.
Now this is cool :) Thanks for showing! Although I thought that Show Me Scifi would’ve gotten it too or something.
Thank you for the police box blue prints.
Do you have any other more detailed plans so DaD & I can build one
