The etching is possibly the coolest thing I have seen in a looong time. I recently got back into the DIY effects scene (after a decade) and things are a bit different now. Can I get this blue paper at any electronics place or is it specialty? I recently built a Marshall Gov'nor clone and while it sounds great, I'm looking for another distortion to build. Kind of a 'rip your face off' distortion, and this BSIAB sounds like it may work? Also, for someone starting out again (supply-wise) should I just get one of those basic etching kits to make my boards? Wiring that Gov'nor by hand was a pain. Again, excellent job on those etchings, it looks awesome, and thanks for sharing the idea and photos.

For a rip your face off distortion, try the blackfire. I love the BSIAB II, but it's a bit smoother while the blackfire is a bit more over the edge.
