there  is a way with illustrator to have the puzzle parts printed with some references marks that will allows you to stitch the papaers easily and accuratly.

I'm not really helpfull, I've done it in the past, but I can't remember how to do. maybee our common friend google will be helpfull

I found it, its just on the printing dialog box, under "marks and bleeds"

Also the overlap you can specify under general:

If you permit me to put the cab on its side and scan it both sides, then i am talking about that one  Wink

If you permit that, you will make at least 3 CK owners very very happy !
(after i vectorised it, or did you do that already also ?  Grin)

I have never seen one that has it in reality, just pictures....

And again you can see that miracles do happen !  Space Ace

I think it's the only existing Ck cab with the original sideart.
As far as I know, there were no full uprights made with this dedicated sidearts, it looks fantastic. Space Ace

Wow. Pure horror to do the fur of the Kong and fix all the scratches. If anyone can do it, it's you Cheesy

I appriciate all you guy's support !

But really its not that hard..

I will tell you guys a little secret..  (or a look in the kitchen is maybe better  Wink)

I have two big friends and theyre names are Mr. Magic wand, and Mr. Autotrace  Grin

Since this one has only 4 colors and a brown background and no halftoning, its much more easy:

First take the image in photoshop and use the magic wand to select the area..
(i missed a few blue furs but these images are just for demonstration purposes..)



Then paint it black (which is easy since its selected)
After that cut it out and start Illustrator..




Paste the image and press autotrace..




Expand the trace and you got the rough vector of the image..



Which in turn does not need alot of adjustment since the scan was straight, huge and 600 Dpi  Tongue

But yes, it still takes some time to do it and position it correctly.
