    I think you only need to size down by 15 of the paper props from earlier in the thread.

    I thought I had previously seen good-quality versions of Doc Brown's inventor portraits somewhere in this forum, but I can't find them anymore (... yes, I used "search" but I only found dead links). Could someone please give me a link?

    *! Just saw a decent kit about a month ago at a Chicago model show! Thought it was cool but wasn't on my list! I'll have to add it to the hunting notes!

    Let me pull some old hard drives out of storage after the Thanksgiving weekend. I believe I have all of those saved.

    I am not completely sure, but I vaguely remember reading that they were 11"x14". This is also more consistent with the ratio of 1600x1200 pixels in Roland's images - and with the scenes in the movie in which Doc is holding one of the frames, or where you can see the frames in the background - these look larger than 8"x10"

    Look at this part of a behind the scenes Polaroid:

    polaroid0096_part.jpg

    You can see a 8.5x11 in. letter behind the newspaper frame. If you count the pixels on this Polaroid, you will get the dimensions of the scientists frames: The frames are exactly 15x19 inches and the visible pictures are 11x15 inches (frame thickness: 2 inches).

    Thanks! This makes a lot of sense. Let me guess: if the visible area is 11"x15", the full size may be 12"x16" which is a common size. This also matches exactly the pixel ratio (1200x1600) of your files, with a nice value of 100dpi.

    Someone here was selling a printed replica a few years ago. I just can't remember who it was.

    Hi All,

    Long time reader but infrequent poster.

    I have been trawling through this thread wanting some screen accurate copies of both the 1985 and 1955 Marty letters. I find many to claim as being such, is there a definitive consensus on this? I found a post from Roland noting he was going to make 1 with envelope... you know that's going to be good.. was this ever completed?

    Then... I came across the Almanac files... and that dick who was selling your work! That's terrible. This is now another project I am interested in and I note that Roland was going to do a write up on achieving the silver cover... dud thus happen? I can't find any record of it...

    Thirdly, the Blast from the past receipt.. what was the final consensus on making this? Printed clear foot with clear letters? Silver letters on coloured plastic?

    Any help on the above would be amazing.

    Thanks all

    Thank you for posting this. However, I just tried to extract the images in the .rar file, but I get "failed to extract" for pages 2, 25, 32, 35, 36

    I have attached my 1955 Marty letter and Lou's Cafe envelope. The 1985 letter has not been done because there are only a few reference images of the actual prop which are not very good.

    For the 1955 letter, youngpaddy1 put the handwriting together from HD screencaps and I did the top section and the envelope.

    When printed on Monarch/Executive sized stationery and envelopes they should be a screen-accurate match to the ones used in the movie.

    The Almanac receipt was screen-printed silver on a transparent blue plastic.
    With some trial and error you can duplicate this effect using toner foil and a laminator.
