    My favourite Doctor! Favourite era and favourite TARDIS design! I can’t believe this exists. Free too! Will be definitely reading this! Thank you very much! You’ve made this Pertwee fan a very happy guy!

  2. Hi, right now, i’m starting om plans for a console, but it’s the “Five Doctors” one.

    I see that either you ( Tony ) or lespaceplie have even managed to get the “zig-zag” trim around the console edge correct?

    Can you give me the measurements of this, as I’m having a complicated time, trying to get that zigzag edging **right**.
    Please Help?

    Hello there, Well what a wonderful surprise. Moreover, a very nice gesture from Tony. Thank you Tony.
    I came here by accident; I was looking for Tony’s work on the first console via the Tardis builders website. Which I found many months ago and used to admire the meticulous drawings lovingly. However, my saved link no longer takes me there. And it was on this mission to re-find this treasure that … I came across another treasure.
    Again, thank you Tony. I dream again of making a Tardis console. I had a go, in the late 80’s (I only had the ‘Dr.Who technical manual’ to go off)… The console didn’t make it into the 90’s i’m afraid.
    Would it be possible to obtain Tony’s plans for the first console? For a contribution of course.
    In fact would it be possible to read a ‘History of Tony’, I’d love to see his journey in creating these quite impeccable reference drawings.
    I really mean it when I say “Thank you for your workTony.”
    For I know the joy of standing behind your own Tardis console.
