Doctor Who Diorama (and the challenge of building a 28mm TARDIS)


Recommended Posts

My thought on Who under Moffat are simple. Too much for one man. He's done some brilliant stuff, some hilarious stuff, and some WTF? stuff, but WHO really demands more people coming up with more ideas, and more brainstorming to make ideas work and toss some into the recycling where they belong then it is getting at times

 

edit: forget 'Blink" if you've got the first two seasons, wait until she watches 'The Empty Child'

Hello everybody!   I am enjoying so much this little project (triggered by Jasper's SciFi Challenge!) that I decided it would be better to make it a spin-off thread of my main compiled WIP thread.

Saturday update:   Masking and priming white (airbrush):   First blue coat, airbrush:   Darker blue and lighter blue with airbrush, to set the tone and gradients:   Colors used at this s

Update pic.   If anybody has questions, I can elaborate.  

Well, the idea is NOT to scare her too much... so I will proceed with caution with that episode then.

How old is she? One of mine at nine got screaming nightmares from that one, and even as teenagers it still makes my kids shudder.

I always feel so lost whenever people start talking Dr. Who as I've probably seen like 5-10 episodes total (and those being with Matt Smith as the Dr.)...

Come to the Dark Side...

"Fantastic!"

 

I really love what you're doing with this. Matt Smith is not my favorite Doctor, but he's pretty durned good. I will wait patiently to see how this comes together.

 

For what it's worth, I'm almost 37, and some Dr. Who still scares the crap out of me. <cough>weeping angels<cough>

As an addendum anyone who likes Dr. Who should read ReaperBryan's blog on said. It's extremely well written, informative, and a lot of fun. 

 

I don't hate Moffat, though I do dislike some things he's done. He's also give us what I believe are some of the best new episodes. If "Empty Child/The Dr. Dances" is not my favorite, it's easily in the top 5. Yes, I count those as one episode. I'm biased though, because Eccleston is my favorite Dr.

She's 10. She kept watching the episode, eyes wide open, utterly serious. I asked, she said she was fine, she then straight to bed... and slept as a rock. So either she is a rock, or she slept with her sonic screwdriver under the pillow.

 

@Loim: I find Eccleston smile to be fake and kinda perverse, tbh. Smith makes me care about him. To each their own... LOL

I get the impression Eccleston was told to be more "charming," thus the maniacal grin.

I wasn't scared by the angels after what they did to them in the Matt Smith episodes. The first one, with Tennent were fantastic, very tense and creepy. But in the Matt Smith Episodes it just didn't make sense. They had their eyes uncovered and they were looking at each other but still moving. They're not supposed to do that. Plus, they aren't supposed to actually hurt you, just send you back in time so they can live off the energy of having sent you back, but iirc Rory got hurt by those baby angels in the last Any+Rory episode. That episode didn't make sense at all. Why send them to a creepy hotel? They're supposed to send them back in time.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      I haven’t been on the forum much this year.  Since joining Anne Foerster’s Patreon I’ve been spending more time on Discord.
       
      I’ve been painting this guy following the paintalong she’s done for one of the tiers.  It’s the first time I’ve tried to do a “display quality” paint job.  Other firsts are NMM, freehand, leather texture, cloth texture, and sculpted base elements.
       
      I actually started this guy early this year, but then stopped painting altogether for about 4 months after the pandemic started.  I picked him back up in July and am getting close to finishing.  I’m posting a series of pics I’ve taken as I went, and will continue to post as I finish him up soon.
