Plans restoration

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys, i just forund an old set of Dick Barron 1/4 scale stearman plans, from like the 70's, they are preety faded and the blue ink has gone real dark and i can't make out some of the lines, or shapes, is there any hope of bringing them back to being usable or are they just fire starter now? These plans are apparently very true to the scale outline and scale in the detail, right down to the tie downs on the wings, i would like to use them if possible, because i don't know where i would ever find another set.
Thanks for any help, youguys always seem to come through on everything else so i am hoping you can work the magic one more time, thanks in advance Bill

You could try scaning one of the affected areas at a high resolution and then adjusting contrast/brightness or colour balance in Photoshop or some similar photo-editing program. Generally, the computer is capable of discerning much more monochromatic detail than the human eye.

Beats setting fire to it!
