For me I would definitely pay the extra cost for getting the back of the map the same aged coloration to match the aged color on the borders on the front of the map.
I have asked, and my print shop said they can't do a double sided print. Maybe a different print shop could, but I'm not willing to do that leg work at this stage.

Okay no problem at all. The modifications look perfect by the way!!
Can you take a look at this part of the white circle on your map vs the original map? It seems a bit thinned out on the bottom of your map whereas on the original map it looks continuous along the bottom. Thank you.

Merlinb - agree with your analysis regarding the clouds/nebula. Bernard did say he silkscreened the 3 maps and then did the remaining details by hand. That accounts for the variance between the surviving maps.

Yeah I remember asking you years ago about those white spots and streaks on the screen used map. You and merlinb are right it’s from the handling and folding of the map by the prop guy/s and the actors. It’s just natural weathering and not part of the print.

merlinb - Okay this is the final tiny detail I just want you to take a quick look at. Bare with me please. It’s on three spots of the dotted or dashed lines where on the screen map, there is a break in 2-3 of these dotted lines. It’s so simple to change but see what you make of it first. I circled the three spots. Thanks for your time!

Sorry for the brief interruption, normal service will resume shortly...
Here are the images of my final prototype, which has had a few microtweaks in the last few days :

How well will the canvas you are printing on take to weathering?

I've been looking at the tutorial in the following thread..
Time Bandits
It works quite well. It's water resistant so you can throw a lot at it, although that also means it takes a lot of stain / coffee to darken it, but once it's in it stays put. I even put one in the washing machine to try to remove some stain and it didn't seem to come out cleaner. I've been practicing on my prototypes. A down side is that the canvas seems to be more resistant to staining on the back, so it always looks whiter. Another drawback is that the canvas does not stretch, so I haven't been able to reproduce those 'dragged' or 'stretched' areas very accurately, I just wore them away.

Enjoying your Bandits map journey. Well done. Yes, I believe the original map was thinner that modern inkjet canvas. I've never been able to replicate the billowing folds at the horizontal center.

John this part of your map that I circled in the picture below. Did you see arrows? Or it this what you think they are instead of blue lines for a nebula? So far the new replica just has it as nebula lines (pictured on the right) I really love what you have with the blue arrows.
