Phase 1: I ordered to print all in vinyl with gloss protective lamination. Golden details were removed in this phase.

Hello there!

Sadly I don't have access to a hand scanner and I know that should be the ideal. For the circular decals, it has the same size of the saucer cap (which I have some spares here), so I've traced it in a paper, and scanned it as a tiff (600 dpi) image.

For some reason I can't attach .tiff files here, so I created a folder in my Google Drive and stored all images (and the scan) there, both images in HEIC and TIFF image formats are there, if you can take a look into it.

I've tried to measure all as best I can, and can (re)measure it if needed.

The link for Google Drive its this one.

Maybe this can be useful to @Andy B also (if his not got the decals elsewhere yet).

Cheers,

Anderson

I´m here again! (I was restoring arcade artworks for an operator than opened an arcade salon today and he absorved my all my free time)

I saw photos!

Well, I have not problem in restore all pinball and arcade artwork sof the world with independence of time to complete them or how hard they are, but I have a really problem with colour match if I have not originals. This is the reason because I don´t accept to restored and reproduce "some" of this kind of works for now, becasue, when I repro them without original there will be not a perfect colour match and I will have to read complaints.

Why I say "some"? Because I repro this kind of work succesfully (I will show them ahead), but with this conditions:

1) I need the original or a sample colours.
2) User will pay all colours match test to find right colours.

What happend at the end? One or both conditions are not fulfilled.

With Attack From Mars Inserts we have a complex situation, because I need a "Indigo print machine" (I know a company that have it. I saw it in person) for to print a consistente white ink in transparent mylar, it has this work more expensive. But, eh!, I have not problem to do this work, I have no fear, but if we will do this effort, we will do it well.


Best regards

Howdy again @Mikonos,

Okay, so, if we decide to go ahead, what we need now ?

The first thing I need from you is your best. I that way I will need scans files. Don´t use a hand scan machine, it produce distortions. You will need spend money and to buy and scan machine.

Other option is to order a playfield scan in a shop. 300 dpi and tiff format. I scan at 600 dpi for myself.

No way using photos, in this case in special.


Greetings
