I think you've spent exactly enough time. (:
Illustrator is fun. The white on blue looks great. I've never seen many real blueprints in all my years in engineering -- only a few from the 30s for some broadcast towers. Always thought white on blue looks better than the blue on white which the ones now are all black on white.
I don't know why it looks better; it's not like diagrams have always been reproduced that way, it was just for a rather short time in history. But it seems right that way.
It wouldn't be a good companion for long. I'd start to resent how much it cost me! (Steve K - for some reason my WordPress credentials not accepted!!)
That's the reason why quality typewriter manufacturing will never be revived—with so many cheap and almost free, excellent typewriters around, nobody would pay the price for a new one.
This looks beautiful!Have you seen Rob Bowker's manual for the GC5?http://issuu.com/robbowker/docs/imperial_gc5
