Quote from: galacticprobe on Sep 18, 2014, 06:47 amWell, starting with what we know (thanks to your references):Front Door windows - no-brainer; larger than life: we know the pattern.Left Side windows - again, no-brainer; forget the motorcycle scene and go with what you can plainly see on the "main" prop.Right Side windows - a little tougher; we've got the "front" part of that side (with McGann leaning on the corner), so we know the pattern of at least that front window. The back right side window, from the photo of the prop in that "I.M.Foreman"-looking junkyard confirms the lower hammered pane of that window, and as you say, you can see the sun glinting off of that top right pane. I would suggest going with that - knowing it is from one of the "main" props. Forget the model for this side, for as we know all too well (especially when looking back at the Hartnell-Tom Baker years), the model sometimes doesn't even come close to the main prop. So go with the junkyard prop; it's full-sized, and probably a more reliable source.Rear Side windows - now we're getting into the sticky bit. Looking at the back of the prop, the window on the "right" as you look at it does have that same sunlight glint off of the hammered glass that you mentioned with the prop's Right Side Proper. So that window pattern I would say is fairly to pretty well reliable. Again looking at the prop's back, your "left" window also has that sunlight glint of hammered glass on the lower left pane. I've tried playing about with the image you posted, and I think after a bit of sharpening, and lightening, it does look like that window has a hammered pane in the upper center. (The image of the inside of the model makes it look like there are more than just two hammered panes in that window, so again I'd suggest letting that one go.)Can you post the original image of the prop's rear? Maybe if I tweak that one, rather than the pixelated one above, I might be able to bring out a bit more detail, and we might see where that last elusive hammered pane is.But this is just my 2p worth: Front=done, seen them on screen; Left side=done, seen them on screen (main prop - ignore the larger motorcycle prop); Right side="mostly" done, we can see the forward window and one hammered pane of the after window with McGann in the image, and we have a decent image of what might be that other hammered pane on the prop in the junkyard (and I'd call it good - just me); Rear="3/4ths" done, we can see three hammered panes on the prop in the junkyard, and possibly that last hammered pane at top center of the "left" window, and if I can clean the original image up to get more details, I'll give it my best shot (if you can post it, that is).Dino.
