Never mind that, though, this:

After the disaster that was the Dell all-in-one (finally lost to the permanent, unshiftable "incorrect printer cartridge installed, please insert a genuine Dell printer cartridge" error, although it had been showing scan errors for a while, as well) I have upgraded to (drumroll please) the only affordable A3 scanner. It came well packed but minus software and manual. Still, I've got it talking Twain, so we're cool.
This is just a raw scan, with no correction or cleaning bar a quick levels adjust to clean up any smudges. The slight vagueness in the top left is not the fault of the scanner; I was scanning from a book. The scan quality itself is pin-sharp. The building site in the strip is gone but there is another, bigger, better one now. I have high hopes that the new building site will contain a robotic car-park when finished.
