Hey gbfhs, it is looking amazing! What are the dimensions of your replica?

Hi Alex, The dimensions changed as the build progressed, i had to shorten the sign in places to give it a more accurate balance but the final dimensions are 16 1/2" (42cm) square and 19 1/4" (49cm) outer most finger tip to finger tip. I think its still quite a good size. In the future if i was to make a full size sign this makes it a lot easier to scale up, probably only take half the time as this one !

Hi CaptCyan, The permanent marker seems to have worked ok, i dont think i will back it up with paint, but i agree with what you say, i have seen thin spots etc so i let it dry for 24h then go over it again.

You're doing a great job! Now, if you ever decided to make a movie size version I'd be more than willing to send some money your way to make some for me ;)

I must say I'm very impressed with the results.

Have you had a chance to see how it looks back lit?

Thanks for all the great comment everyone.
@ Kingpin, I have had a torch behind it and it looks pretty good, I have got a video on my phone i have just got to figure how to get it from my phone onto the computer,because i dont have a lead !
@ CaptCyan "Whats the next step ?" I am thinking of either doing another pull and painting it then building a light box so that it is like a full movie sign OR and this is a big OR making the GB2 sign the same size and building a light box so that it will have the GB1 sign on one side and the GB2 sign on the other !!!!

I like the idea of a GB1/GB2 Sign if you have a place to hang it so it shows both sides. Otherwise, one sided and mounted flush to the wall would be a great centerpiece for any display. I'll be waiting to see what you come up with.

For the black did you use sharpie? Or a paint marker? I know in my expieriance with sharpie after some time on plastics and such it tends to give off a purple color.

Glad to lend a hand. This is an awesome project. How about trying some "Christmas" LED strings to light it up? It would make the lighting more even.

My son and I just got finished watching BTTF 3, and I pulled up some pics to show him Doc Brown's time train at USF in 1991.

He spotted this photo of the no-ghost sign in that same album. Sorry I didn't share it before, I'd forgotten about it.

Notice how they didn't paint in the black areas, they just left them white.
