As you all can read in this post, there was a horrifying accident !

Ever since, Bela is looking for a new Bezel to replace the broken bezel on his Crazy Kong.
some time ago there was a CK on marktplaats along with a Centipede.

Anyway, as you all know i love DK an CK because thats the game i played the most in the past.
I had an nonworking DK table, and it lives in my mothers attic.
Well since space is limited, my mother agreed with an upright only if i removed the table.

I contacted the seller, and we could not come together on the price he was asking fort his CK.

As you all know there is no Repro Artwork for CK, i asked robin if i could scan his artwork to help Bela out.
No offence to robin ofcourse, but i did not hear anything from him, so i contacted the seller of this CK with the question if i could come over to scan the bezel.

The seller was kind enough and willing to help fellow arcade lovers out and agreed that i come and scan the artwork.
What youre waiting for Etienne ? Lets GO !!!!

I grabbed the scanner from work, and put it in the case, Maximum protection ofcourse  Kiss


More protection, i don’t want that after the trip the scanner is not working due to bad packaging  Wink



Everything loaded ? Scanner, CHECK! -  Laptop, CHECK!



Route in navigation, CHECK! All systems GO!



38,8 Km’s to go, not far today..  ETA 29 minutes..



Standard Stats picture:



Not many exiting moments on the road since its only 40 Km’s and mostly highway.
I only spotted 2 hot air balloons in the sky..



And here is my exit already..



Again the hot air balloons , only now with a beautifull background ..



This you cannot read almost, but it says right under the town name “you are there” Grin



Arrived at the location, a warm welcome from the local residents Cheesy



The seller was a little later then me so i decided to take some pictures of the place..





Then i saw another “classic”



And another, right next to the barn, where more residents live Smiley



Oke, once the seller arrived, we entered the building and this what i came for…



Armed with my weapons of choice i started to scan the artwork :



Almost finished !



Not much special on the way back, just a fuzzy shot of my exit before i got home again..



Ending stats..



Total Km’s : 92, countries : 1, provinces : 1, Total time spend: 4 hours

Now its time to work on those graphics  Twisted

Very nice thing to do indeed.
I'm pretty sure you know that already Etienne but just in case you don't this will spare you some time for sure:
to combine multiple images using photoshop:
First make sure they are all oriented the same way and place them in a folder.
Then in photoshop, choose: File/automate/photomerge
There you choose “reposition only” and point photoshop to the folder where your pictures are stored.

It works quite well (sometimes you just have to soften a bit the junction between two pictures by using the eraser tool on the mask layer).

Unfortunately it has "standard zaccaria" sideart  Cry , for sure if it had the monkey, i would have scan that also !

@chrischris, Thanx for the tips, i am starting with learning AI in this moment, and photoshop i only have basic knowledge, so it comes in very handy !

I use "panoramafactory" in this moment to join pictures wich work quit well as i may say
you can give as much refference points as you like and the program does the rest , very reccomendable!
