In the absence of my very own Baldrick, I've had to do the work on my time machine for my 28mm Edmund Blackadder myself. It's not quite finished, but certainly looks more like what it should than the previous "hatbox on a washing machine" look. Details can be found on my blog here:

Very nice work. Thanks for posting.

I take minor issue with your statement: "The machine needed four decorative ‘spires' on each corner of the roof".

Far from decorative, it is, I believe, well established that the four spires are the calibrating focal points of the temporal distortion field mechanism. See marginalia to Da Vinci's 1487-1488 notebooks.

You could've just used a police box …

Those 'spires' are pure inspiration. Forget rivets, bring on the wood screws!

Great stuff!

Thanks all. As I only had Baldrick's 'notes' – which were done in crayon and featured several drawings of turnips, rather than the original DaVinci notebooks, I made an assumption regarding the spires. Apologies for this.

As for a police box, there's one of those on the workbench too…
