ROTJ Yoke Overlay
« on: May 25, 2011, 12:31:36 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)

Slowly but surely the Overlay is comming back from the dark side  :D



Now the center, and after that placing the dot layer behind for the halftone..

 :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...

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)
