Almost pulled an all nighter creating a special present for my Dr Who mad daughter.

Below is a collection of images from the build. Lots of disciplines involved including planning, 3.D. modelling, printing and reprinting, re-purposing and recycling parts of the chair that broke under me while I was air-brushing for the first time.

I even themed the desktop and had all the Dr Who sound effects!

The best part was seeing my daughter’s excitement when she opened the paper. Nothing beats this!.
