    Well After day 3, I have almost finished the bottom glass. Only the reel windows to do, which I know is going to be a pain, and then I can do the top glass.

    Probably so, all screen printed I presume would save them cash. I’ll stick to this plan. Think I can do the machines proud with this technique. one a1 sheet for three bands. Tape original reels to the back, stick symbols I’ve cut out over the front on to a1 sheet. Spray and dry, 3 coats should make solid black and light proof. I did one coat today and it was “ok” on paper so more on transparent should make it spot on. then cut the light masks out attach them to the reels with double sided tape after a day of drying and then build the reels I hope that will give a good result, I’ll update everyone when all the bits arrive. This week apparently the reels are being printed. Lets see

    Glad they went to a good home, was a test of the printers and although good expensive. Like me though, it’s not about money it’s about making them good Glad your happy. Look forward to seeing them fitted mate.

    Work continues for a perminent backlit set of Hit Money, Blue Streak and Test Pilot prints.... Using Jonnos art I've now managed to also make these... When done and tested ill print a set of all of them. Currently waiting for hit money on the light box poster material. Ill see how that looks. Artwork now scaled properly to 80mm x 770mm in Photoshop and saved in JPEG for colour bands, PNG for masks. Ill zip the lot up when clean tidy and done, just meed Cash Pot Symbol and Bar Symbol from Test Pilot scanning at high resolution. I did them a while ago and sent them to Jonno but never posted them and can't find them now! Sods law. If anyone has a set of Test Pilot reel bands and access to a scanner to scan the Bar & Cash Pot symbol at stupidly high resolution please post it here i did them originally at 1200dpi. Heres where I'm at so far, complete for BlueStreak and Hit Money, will post the lot when done

    I've been copying liveries for old chocolate machines recently and there is a quite smart font detection system (upload a picture type) at www.myfonts.com which is owned by industry giant Monotype. I was surprised how accurate it was even with pictures of rusty machines at funny angles. They try and flog you the font of course, at silly prices, BUT, you can generate samples to your text on screen so I simply generated the text in the exact size and colour I wanted and copied them off the website using right click + save . Whatever you see on screen - and you can go big, say 70pts, it will actually generate it almost double the size when you save it off so can be scaled quite a bit without getting pixelated. They have every font you could imagine going back 100 years or so. It's ace. Nice work btw above.

    I have found out that you can have a very high quality result for a low price for non-backlighted reels: Here below my reelbands I created in photoshop for a fruity I build and didn't had the original reels, only a reelplan and similar symbols from other reelbands to scan. Originally this is backlighted but I couldn't find a copier who could print this in a silk screen print method. (I assume that the method for reelbands is silk screen printing, or is it another technique?) I had them printed at a professional printcopier organisation on a high-quality photopaper (with high gloss) in adequate resolution (300 dpi). I payed about € 35,- including cutting the reelbands for 2 copies. (so 12 reelbands in total, 6 fronts, and 6 seperate reelbands with the black masking). Sitting next to other fruity's it is almost not noticable that these reels are printed compared to originals. If I turn them on you can see that the backlighting is not so nice as an original reelband. But if you don't have backlighting in your reels, and want to save some money than this is a real good alternative. But for now I am actually only interested to have reelbands printed for backlighted reels, which I believe is a silk screen print method. If I can have reels printed with this method, I have several reelbands (about 10 pairs of 3) which I would orderd. And I will be willing to pay a good price for it 😉 So I am still on the lookout for the silkscreen backlighted print option.......... 🙂 (Edit: I cropped this image, so the resolution looks sh*t, but it is a high resolution originally)
