The Chiltern open air museum is certainly an enjoyable day out, but as said more so when this pandemic is under control and more areas open to the public again. I live near museum and visit it every year due to the excellent classic car show they hold in its grounds each summer. I seem to remember they have a DAC 90 in the 1940's prefab.

Laser printer is I think the best way to go. I've printed battery covers with both Ink jet and Laser. The amount of ink used with Ink jet printers leaves the paper wet and wrinkly.
