« Part 3: Painting, Windows and part assembly Part 4 of PMG Public Telephone Box MK 2 series no next part

All that was left to do was cut the front door to size and fit it , not forgetting to do dimensional checks for No 3 in 2026!

So lets get it finished

The entrance door was cut down vertically attached with a piano hinge and the paper on the acrylic removed.
the windows were fitted into the recesses and I used a hot glue gun to fix them in the recess on all four corners.
A little sanding an beveling to get a smooth open and close.

This picture is not sideways BTW even if it looks like it is!
And we are done.
The project ran over two weeks part time as I would spend some time on it then stop to allow glue and paint to dry.

Its a fiddly project but no where as complex as Crowie’s cars or any other models I see here.

I still have LBD’s puzzles to review and have been playing with his balls in between the telephone task.

The castle is a bit of a mess, at the moment, snakes Luban balls and many tiny puzzles from Melb everywhere.

But who cares as Crowie reports its something to keep me amused too.

OK wrap it up.

Dimensions:-

Overall height ... yep its sideways!

width of the concrete base

other stuff

that’s enough trying to graphically represent it i will add a sensible detailed dimension list in the project post

Thanks for looking and spending a 6p to make a call even if the phone has been vandalised and removed !

I only hope my Avocado plant produces fruit.

Thanks for checking out what crazy stuff I do in my “drive way workshop”

-- Regards Rob

rc, if you get a chance PM me with a picture with the dimensions on them (all sides)...

If I get a chance I’ll see what damage I can do on the laser… the top may be an issue, however, the proof of concept might chew up a few days of lockdown as I can’t see Chairman Dan dropping it in the near future.

Nicely done Rob.
And I do remember the sixpence call charge.

Found the remains of a Christmas cake, still sitting on the outside table when we were still allowed to gather, that my cheapskate guests somehow forgot to pocket,

At least I’d be able to make 2 calls if Telstra (former PMG) ever bring charging back.

Actually a “parallel perspective” picture (direct front on) of the unique sides with height and width measurement could permit me to import them into SketchUp.
