Amiga Magic Pack photos?

Hi,
I've just bought an Amiga 1200 Magic Pack but it comes without the original box. I'd like to get pics of each panel so I can print them and similate the box myself but have only managed to find a decent photo of the front of the box. Does anyone know where I can get reasonable photos of the 4 sides?
cheers
klokwirk

Yes, I have my A1200 Magic Pack box to hand and I will attempt to get you some good quality pics all four sides and the top as well over the holiday weekend.

Thank you prowler. This will mean a lot to me and I really do appreciate it.
I may have to buy you a beer or 2 next time I'm in England.

Hey tomse, Way to go... I really wish you had asked earlier. It would have saved me 10 pounds. ;-)

HQ scans of games boxart/manuals/stickers and whatnot -> hol / oagd.net
HQ scans/images of hardware boxes/manuals/pics of hardware etc -> BBoAH
HQ scans of software boxes/manuals/disklabels etc --> ????
HQ scans of magazines, cover disks/cd dumps + scans --> ????

places that share this stuff.

I'll probably tackle this on Sunday.

I've never sent anything to BBOAH before, but it looks like it's just a matter of attaching the images to an email, so that will be no problem.

thanks alot.. the email address is (fill out the rest, which spambots cant ) info@bigbook...
I'm using thunderbird and using the integrated box.com to upload images to him this way the smtp servers wont reject my mails when they are above 10MB in size, I don't know if his server accepts large mails.

I didn't manage to get this done today.

I want to get it done outdoors in daylight to get the colours as realistic as possible, but it has been heavily overcast here and raining all day.

I'll get it done as soon as the weather improves.

If you want prowler, I can give the images the DH touch before you upload them anywhere? You know my capabilities, and the image won't be destroyed by what I do + I work from copies and never on the original image. That's of course if no one objects?

Also, to gain the best possible reproduction, I find an overcast sky the best to prevent glares when it's too bright, even in shaded areas you can still get these glares, but it's all up to you mate

Thanks, mate! That would be the icing on the cake, and give us the best chance of getting it right first time.

When they're ready, I'll email you the pics first if you could just send me a reminder of the address.

That's exactly what I was planning to do!

Thanks, mate!

I'm sure everyone will be amazed when they see how well that boxart can be reproduced!

It all depends on the photographer mate

Whatever I achieve, it's surely going to be a lot better than what's currently available on the interwebs right now, and will obviously become part of Amiga preservation for ever more.

I'll second that. I was amazed and dissapointed that I found only a few average low res photos of the box top and nothing for the sides. This is an icon of Amiga history seems to have slipped through the cracks somehow. So glad it will finally be captured, not just for me but for prosperity. Yay!

Well, when I get these images off prowler, I'll keep you updated to as how they're going, I may even post some before and after shots (low res) if time is permitting.
