Title: ROTJ Yoke Overlay
Post by: Etienne MacGyver on May 25, 2011, 01:31:36 PM
Okay, lets vector this one:

To begin, i have a question.. ( i think i know the answer  ::) )

I have done a preliminary setup in AI of this and have the following conclusion:
the original is not exactly centered...

i have done some positioning and made a detail shot :

Question is , do you want it to be an exact copy of the NOS , or do you want a perfect positioned repro ?

I think the answer must be the second, but its not my machine where this repro is going to be, so let me know what you guys want please  8)

 :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace: to Etienne !!!

Indeed the best thing about this is that Europe now has it's own vector-god  ;D ;D ;D

Best place to print, no doubt in my mind: www.thisoldgame.com

Reminds me...are you 100% sure about the holes now Etienne ? I must have that SW yoke cover repro somewhere that you could match it to...but WHERE?!?!?!

O wait....Rich made those, so he probably has the correct sizes to cut the cover and the holes ! It's probably a die...not sure...

Looking at those holes, I'm 99% sure they're too big...

Not bad Etienne ;D ;D ;D

I took the holes from the scan and they are 9 mm in diameter on the scan..

but yes, if rich can print it, he can also ajust the file, its not protected.

also the colors i have picked from the scan since that was my only source..

Ps, thanks for the headline Bruno !

it was an Honer to bring it back from the dark side  :P

please do feel free to print it on regular paper and make a physical comparation on the actual Yoke.

let me know if there are any errors so i can adjust the file, thats easy enough  8)
