Just messing about:
Another ‘Anime’ Who (inspired by an old book cover where the artist didn’t know what the TARDIS looked like & assumed it was an ordinary phonebox)...

Here’s the art I suspect you are remembering.  (Took a bit to track down the slideshow page I saw several years ago.)

http://www.personal.leeds.ac.uk/~ecl6nb/OnTarget/1973/daleks/daljacov.htm

Here’s the root link if anyone wishes to explore the whole site.

http://www.personal.leeds.ac.uk/~ecl6nb/OnTarget/

Click the arrows to see the interior illustrations.  The Daleks are shaped more like smooth dome capped bullets coasting upon a large “ball” mounted within their bases.  Also, their eye-stalks can twist around like a goose-neck lamp.

This reminds me of something else.  In 1697, Toho collaborated with Rankin-Bass (yes, the studio that made all those puppet animated holiday specials) to produce a film titled in English ar “King Kong Escapse”.  In a nutshell, Kong, roughly the size of Godzilla, is pitted against a robotic duplicate of the great ape.  This mechanoid is the creation of a villain called, I kid you not, Dr. Who, alternatively spelled Dr. Hu depending upon the material referenced.  Here’s how he appears in some scenes…

Obviously, while not exact, that ensemble with the pill-box hat reminds me of William Hartnell’s entrance, when he returns to Foreman’s junkyard and encounters Susan’s teachers.  Speaking of Susan, Dr. Hu in the Toho film also has a granddaughter in her late teens.  Was it an homage?  Eh, I doubt it.  The now iconic BBC series was only in it’s fourth year and probably all but unknown outside the UK.  But the coincidence IS rather bizarrely funny!

Sincerely,

Bill

Just read “Wheel of Ice” a couple of weeks ago.  I’d love to see a take on Jamie.

Jamie was a companion to the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.

yes, but Pat Troughton died many years ago .  It is the second Doctor, but I think the doctor is voiced by Frazer Hines in this.

I assumed it was a written book, and the question was which doctor was described in it.

Just messing about.

I Think the M3 Marauder set combined with Celestial Toymaker’s free cyber helmet makes a very nice Classic/New Series Cyberman hybrid.

The helmet is available in the fan art section of the Gallifrey Base website (http://gallifreybase.com)

Thanks for the references Bluto.  They will be a big help, in fact on my lunch hour I already roughed in two of the panels.

The bad news is that I have decided I need to start over.  You see, I started this project after watching the first episode with the new room.  I found the few references I could and dove in.  However as time has gone by and I’ve watched more episodes like “Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS” much better views of the room are available and I have realized I made many bad mistakes.  For example there are stairs where I have none, there are doors where I have none.  I also failed to UVMap as I went and made hundreds of replicas of items like the hexagonal wall panels with no materials assigned.  Fixing that would be excruciating.  Fixing the problems would be harder than just starting fresh so that’s the answer. Will add some time, hopefully will make a better model though.  The good news is I expect to be taking some time off from work soon and will have a good block to work on it.
