I know there are a lot of flaked Buck Rogers out there and some like mine are flat out missing. I was a big fan of this show and own the box set. It really was a jewel of a show, at least that first season. Anyway, I thought it would be cool to make an alternate translite using the orginal motion picture poster. More Erin Grey baby! I need help with getting the score displays placed and sized correctly. Im close but need to be exact. If anyone can help me out I would be happy to send you a free translite.

I can pop mine out and get some measurements tomorrow, I luckily only have a couple small missing spots.

That would be great! I will draw a dimension map that maybe you can fill in the blanks and I will post it here. Thank you!

Here's about as good as I can do. The art did not appear to be perfectly square/aligned but these should be within 1/32" on my backglass.

As far as I know all system1 (except maybe asteroid annie) BG are 26"x26", at least the several I have measured.

The score windows are all the same size, measurements are of the clear area, 5 9/16" x 1 3/8"
Credit and ball in play windows are 1 3/8" x 1" tall.
Score windows are 1 13/16" fom left and right edge
The measurements along the left (3 1/2", 8 1/16", and 12 3/4") are all from bottom edge of glass.

I think that should cover it, a little math should get you the rest. Good luck with your project.
