silentrepose's customs

Post by silentrepose »

Hello!
Long-time reader, first-time poster. Nice to "meet" you all!

I was inspired early in the year by 3dPrintingDoctorWho and decided to take the plunge and buy a 3D printer of my own.

The first project I decided to try was making was the classic 80's console which debuted in The Five Doctors:

Image
It's got working lights for the column and the screens
Image
Lights up really well in the dark!
I used some stickers I found online for details as I wasn't confident enough to paint it all myself!

After that, I decided to try the wooden Season 14 Console:

Image
This was a fun build to do, it features a real brass rail on top, which is one of the only things I haven't printed myself, as I got it done through Shapeways. Jeffrey Fink created the original 3d files for the console, which I modified and then created a new base with railing to complete the look.

Next up, I wanted to try making a Tardis exterior - and the first one I wanted to try was the TV Movie Tardis:

Image
Image
For scale, here's the CO 7th Doctor Tardis and the Tennant Flight Control Tardis
Image
The doors can open!
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

I also printed 3dPrintingDoctorWho's Kroton:
Image
This photo was before I painted the arms - I need to take some updated ones!

60's Comic Book Golden Emperor:
This was a small side project while I worked on a much bigger (literally!) project shown below.
The files were posted on the 3D Printing Doctor Who facebook group, but I had some problems with them so ended up almost entirely redesigning this one. Fun to do though!
Image

Next up was my biggest project to date: This was my take on the McGann Tardis console - I used some files originally designed by Jeffrey Fink (one of the sources that 3dPrintingDoctorWho started from for his (much more impressive!) version)
Image
Image
All the details, text, etc are very tiny stickers (some 1mm by 2mm)
I didn't add any lights or moving parts, aside from the scanner, which accordions up and down, and also swivels from side to side.
I did, however, add some lighting to the shelving itself, which I think looks pretty cool.

All three of my consoles together:
Image

My latest Doctor Who related build is another Tardis exterior, this time the Newbery version from the middle Tom Baker years.
Image
Image
You can see it here with the City of Death Tom figure, and my McGann Tardis
Image
This is how it looks partway through assembly, and before any finishing or painting.
Image
...and finally, here it is with the McGann Tardis and an in-progress Hartnell original Tardis!

Sorry for the long post! Thanks for reading if you made it this far! :)

A real shame, I appear to have caught the Deborah and can't see the images. From what I've read, sounds amazing!

Edit: I can see them, and now I need a 3d printer. Time to collect together my limited monies.

These are brilliant. Some of the best I’ve ever seen. (And I’ve seen a lot of customs, lol....)

Welcome to the forum, it gets worse here every day. I hope you become a regular poster.
