Is This Wooden British Style Booth Real or Fake?
« on: July 26, 2018, 01:19:46 AM »
I saw a Craigslist listing for this Wooden British style booth, and am wondering if it is a real vintage booth, or is it a fake?

The ones I have seen before are all cast iron.

Authentic.  They didn't use these in Doctor Who though.  Pretty good price.

Not real, it's based on the K6 phone box, but is the wrong dimensions and materials, not to mention colour... :)

The type in the TELEPHONE panels is definately wrong.

Not genuine. Wrong in many ways.

( Plus Dr Who had a much older style. And this one is far too small inside  ;D )
