Well, now that Tag-A-Long trailers is shuttered, :cry: is there anyone out there doing profiles on butcher paper like Grant used to do. from original trailers. Specifically, a Modernistic? :worship:

Can you get your hands on an lcd projector? If so why not make your own from a photo or sketch?

Places that offer "engineering printing" - what use to be blue prints - can usually do up to 36" wide and some of the local owned shops I looked for on Google offer it as low as 25 cents per square foot. Pretty inexpensive pattern. I like the projector - here's a $1 diy projector - http://content.photojojo.com/diy/turn-y ... tor-for-1/ - but you will probably get some distortion unless you can get back a ways and not have to rely on the edges of the image. Not sure some brown paper and gridding the drawing, maybe using either chain and screws for centers for circles and ellipses perhaps, or just a piece of plastic something that affords a bendable "straight edge".
