It's new floor day!

As mentioned previously the floor has copped a beating from four Winters outside, especially given the main panel is made from MDF. MDF is like a sponge when it gets wet, it soaks up water, expands and goes all... fluffy. Essentially makes it useless.

Why I made it from MDF to begin with is a good question, to which I have no real answer except maybe poor forethought. That being said I had no idea the TARDIS would live the life it does now. I had expected it would either live in pieces in the shed between outings or simply be sold after the it's original purpose, being the ACG Ball in 2011.

Anyway, it's going to a wedding this weekend and then likely Supanova in November, so a brand new floor is urgently required!

As you can see below the floor has rotted pretty badly in the corners.


The outer frame is ready. The inner frame is yet to be attached. This time I'm using Contruction Ply for the floor.
