That way the tardis roof is more streamlined and you could make it more in proportion....just thinking


Wow - that's a great idea.

When I posted this, DH & I were in agreement that this is what we were going to do. We found some more information & are now rethinking it. :oops:

I'll let you know what we decide. I'm sure it will be at least as geeky, 'cause that's how we roll. :R

Thanks for the encouragement, though.

Well, there is already a trailer on here called "Tearscape One" so that's been used ;)
But it's true; bow ties are cool.

One other thing to think about. It looks like you planned it for a family. You can always make more of a Foamie Standie, that has a big door. just model the Door like the call box with the graphics of the Tardiss. hehe Just thinking out loud to myself and anyone close to me.

Abaker50 wrote:OK - DH & I discussed many lovely classic trailer designs. We have agreed upon a pretty simple design that looks like Dr Who's Time machine. That's pretty much how things go around here. :roll:

Anyway, it will be a 6' x 10' Foamie, built on an aluminum chassis & we're working on ways to make it sturdy, waterproof and collapsible. Should be interesting.

Here's my attempt at Sketchup. The Tardis details will be paint & automotive decals, rather than structural.

The chassis shown here is a snowmobile trailer, which is one of our possibilities.

After the 1st, we'll get the tow hitch for the Jeep, buy our chassis and get started. Wish us luck - we'll need it.

Gettin' my geek on,
Andrea



:applause: I love it!
