Hey, you give me feedback, and I'll go cheerfully plugging along . See my latest revision, helped along by the crappy day of work I had today. But that $hitstorm let me dive into some of the more nagging issues here. See my notes on previous comments, below.

As always, your feedback and attention to detail, appreciated.

----->DONE? Still working on this, as this is hard to get exact, as all the pictures have either some angle or perspective skewing. Fading of red/yellow blurs the lines making judgement of widths more difficult. I continue to pursusue this part. This is the closest I've gotten to date.

> > -- Control panel area... all corners should be rounded; there are no square corners.
----->DONE. Cant believe i missed that (REDONE 2/7 for better corners)

----->DONE!!! Note - I do all of these in layers, so the instruction card/red arrow sticker can be easily removed if required.

----->DONE? The "whoosh" lines are hard to reproduce perfectly

>> Also... the white highlight on the power pellet on the bottom right character on this file is missing. This should help with that part, without having to redraw everything on your own.

> > -- Stars... these should be centered... right now, they are slightly off to the left.
----->PENDING. Hmmm..I checked and they show to be centered to the pixel on my end. Weird.

> > (In fact, I think the actual frame is slightly off, also). (This could be do to some "stretching" due to the angle of the photographed image?
----->PENDING. The oval center in my redraw is a perfect circle; maybe the original wasn't quite so perfect?
