So while I’m suffering from a back strain and staying home I began updating my graphic file for the fonts identified here. Too bad I needed to buy them but that’s life. In the mean time, I placed a graphic I’d made into a new top layer of Ryan’s work and made a paper print to see what it looked like, and compared those to what I’d made in the past, what Ryan made, what HMS/Rodd made, and how they fit.
This is the static tricorder I made from shells I obtained in the nineties along side a HMS/Rodd kit with Ryan’s slightly modified graphic. My old tricorder is slightly smaller than the HMS/Rodd kit most likely due to being recast. I’ve a made for production med top I got from Mike Moore that fits the HMS/Rodd tricorder perfectly so I tend to believe the HMS one is correctly sized.
Ryan’s graphic fits perfectly everywhere but along the bottom edge of the HMS main body where it shows a good 1/16" short when all else is lined up. I don’t know what you used for size reference Ryan but you may want to take that into account.
Here’s Ryan’s next to the HMS/Rodd kits graphics.
And for laughs, my old tricorder with Ryan’s graphic laid on top. I’m planning on replacing the graphic at some later time.
EDIT: I’m thinking the almond color is going to be too dark. Whatever color HMS used it has the right off white look to me.
