    I know we have a worst redial thread. But how about one for all those hopelessly deluded folk out there with a fine(ish) pointy brush, a pot of lume, a can do attitude, and a complete and utter lack of talent...

    Maybe it's not luminescent paint. I would have posted this in the nasty-repainted-faces discussion thread.

    Have you got any better pictures? Are you sure this is a relume? The tritium often reacts with these late 60's/early 70's blue dials leading to a loss of paint around the markers which makes them look funny.

    This could be original lume, that's just degraded poorly and looks worse due to some loss of the blue paint.
