As you can see, one transfer from this sheet has been rubbed down — although not onto the background, which is clean & unused.
Now… here is StellarX' "7 Wonders" image of a used background:
The figure missing from the sheet is the yellow astronaut at the top right of this background. So… a bit of good, old-fashioned hard work in Photoshop, & — hey presto!
I'm sure Peter would have approved.
For a while, the only images we had of this set were this first one above (donated anonymously & part-used), & below, one of a pair retained from StellarX' "7 Wonders" website.
Then Jolyon Humphryes listed his used set from childhood on eBay, & even kindly scanned it for me before I bid on it! But naturally I won it anyway…
…which enabled me to carefully remove the transfers using our SECRET PATENT TRANSFER REMOVAL METHOD which may involve sellotape & a craft knife, although of course I couldn't possibly comment & you should definitely not try this at home without your Mummy to help you.
So now we have Peter Archer's background, although not yet, unfortunately, his transfer sheet at full scale.
If you have a sheet we can scan to upgrade this set, please get in touch!
