Pierre's Phantom F-4E Peace Icarus

Recommended Posts

The preparation of the etching positive stencils is a tedious job: after the print on transparent acetate, I had to correct huge numbers of tiny speckles on the black surfaces. I used a permanent marker to hide all the white spots.

Here are 2 photos of the current state.

Photo 1. The transparent on the light box. Behind it a printout on cardstock, which will give me the instrument dials and panels.


Photo 2. A close-up of the rear cockpit panel, as it will be etchd. Note the holes for the instruments.


As usual, for your viewing pleasure,

Hi Pierre!

What printer are You using for Your acetate film ???

Laser printers doesn't make a such a black area and clear films for ink-jets are rough and they don't make a full filled area ... but Your's is both! black and full-filled :) How do You do this ... all defects corrected with a permanent marker ???
