Halley's Comet CPO recreation

This isn't as accurate as I'd have liked, but the overall look is about right. Just very hard to do this set without good reference photos. But it works for my purposes on an overlay so hopefully someone else can use it for their project.

These are fairly accurate. I've set the file to the same resolution as the CPO so the sizes are proportionally correct.

Looks pretty good in the overlay, for reference:

I like your speaker panels. I wish there were a resource for those, but it seems over the years nobody found them photo-worthy.

This is fantastic! Great shots already. It's interesting you have that blue marquee, does that mean there were multiple versions of the artwork for this? There was some contention around whether the blue color was accurate, as I had seen a number of photos with the blue version but didn't have an actual copy to confirm that with.

The CPO also seems a different pattern than other photos I've seen, with that pyramid in the center as opposed to what seemed to be a similar circular pattern to the side art.

Absolutely would love for you to take a set of close up photographs of both the CPO and side art at a straight-on angle. I could use those to create accurate recreations in vector format.

A combination of photos of the entire art in one shot, as well as some close up shots that help me confirm the halftone patterns would be ideal.

Thanks for reaching out on this!

I am a big fan of your work so very excited to help you out. I can confirm 100% that there was a blue marquee. I was the first owner (and now the last ) of this machine from the arcade floor to my house. I have also run into black marquees (on the web and will send photos of that also) so there does appear to be 2 different colors. Please PM me an email and I will get to work on this.

Great! I can do a very accurate recreation of that using this photo. Can you supply the dimensions for the CP?

Also, can you provide a straight on shot of the bottom portion of the CPO that's wrapped around to the front?

Thank you!
