The Shining Paper prop

Here's a nice paper prop for you all.
I did some work on this because when I originally got it the Overlook hotel writing was very, very soft - I got a screen grab from the DVD reduced it to the correct size and cloned it across to the photo and then cleaned it up pixel by pixel.
The one stipulation I have is that this is not to be reproduced for ebay although the one time I tried to get a copy from there I was stiffed quite badly.
A seller called underground replicaz failed to send me a copy in a frame and then left me a neg after I negged him - I then had to use square trade to remove the neg costing me a further $29 on top of the $45 I originally paid to recieve nothing - lovely...

Here it is - I'll email a higher res version (10.5mb) if anyone wants it.



I've marked it so I can tell it's the copy I enhanced.

I think it's probably around A4 size but I'm not 100 percent.

Hello all,

I just got an email from the ebay seller(underground_replicaz)that took my money, failed to send my item, left me negative feedback, refused to let square trade remove the negative he left me until I stopped asking for a refund.
This is what it said;

'If I send you tracking info on a new Shining pic will you remove my Ebay name from your Forum Post? Also not post this message. LMK, i can do it ASAP.

Thanks'

So I presume this guy is a member here?
It amazes me this guy can screw me over so badly - costing me $70 for nothing and only offering a replacement three months after the fact because I've 'outed' him.

Karma's a bitch aint it?

Thanks man. That's a lot of work - and it's very cool of you to share.
PLUS, I get to add "underground replicaz" to my do not trade list. If anyone gets his screen name, please PM me.

Do you think he's going to send you a print-out of your own jpg? Now that would be chutzpah.

Added to my do-not-trade list as well. Looks like you weren't the only person having problems with UR.

Now with a bit of luck enough people will know about him to not trade with him in the first place - the way this joker operates I wouldn't be surprised if he did send a print out of the jpeg I've posted. :rolleyes
