Minifig scale phone box

I've finally decided to dip my toe into the world of MOCs and what better way to start than with a scene for my favourite minifigure, Clark Kent. Being fairly new to pick a brick and Bricklink though, I was wondering if anyone has previously built a minifig scale phone box and where would be the best place to source parts from?

I have some ideas, but pick a brick on the [email protected] website doesn't appear to do much red.

I realise I'm only talking small scale for my first MOC, but any help would be appreciated.

    Here is a simple one on brickshelf, if you want red, use use red door frames and plates and it is a good start. (Different angle view)

    Isn't the red phone box fairly UK / commonwealth specific?

    It is fairly UK specific, but as I'm in the UK I fancied an English Superman! Maybe he can have a bowler hat too.

    There was a good phone box in the animated display video shown next to the superheroes sets in TRU. I assume it is an official Lego video but not sure if it's available online - I must have watched it 3 or 4 times standing in the aisle, but not sure if it was on screen long enough to reverse engineer.

    I am compelled to post this, from the Superman True Brit Elseworlds by Kim Johnson, John Cleese (!!!) and John Byrne -

    Good luck for your MOC, once you've perfected phone boxes, google Kingston leaning phone boxes. Potentially the perfect diorama for your Colin Kent :-)

    He looks so... smug (aka 'douchey'). Must be that raised eyebrow. =)

    You will also need some custom printed 2x1 tiles for all the advertising cards inside.

    I'm not going that authentic!

    That's a shame, I was just about to suggest this brickforge piece.

    To derail this topic even more, I think the British Superman was Kent Clarke? (There's also a great arc called 'Red Son' about what if baby Superman landed in the Ukraine instead of Kansas).
