Picture of Amazing Pop-up Tardis!!!

Hey everybody!! This is my first Instructable. I'm going to show you how I make an Amazing Pop-up Tardis from the popular sci-fi show, Dr Who.

I have drawn up all the templates and parts for you (it took quite a while to get right). Just assemble it!

It looks awesome and is a great gift for Dr Who fans. Enjoy!

I thought this would take a few minutes, but as usual I was wrong. It was fun to build.

Thanks for the plans.

Thank you so much for this ... big Who fan. I seem to be having problems with the pop-up_tardis_finishes_a4 file. One of the signs does not display correctly for me (the free public one). Any advise appreciated.

Lots of Cheer - wotw

Thanks wkou! yeah I just checked out the pdf and....yeah it does seem that way on the pdf viewer. I remember the image I used for that sign is quite high resolution. I zoomed in and everything is there. I think it may just be a pdf viewer problem. It should be fine when printing.

this is so wonderful! :) what kind of weight would you suggest for the blue card? The one I had at home seems to be to thick, the printer won't take it.
