The HP3500 is removed from my backend and will be included in 1.0.18 as 
Please have a look to the link http://projects.troy.rollo.name/rt-scanners/

I'm working on the color modes for the HP447x0 scanners. But my backend will 
not  be included in a sane-backend release because there is a lot of 
different hardware worldwide on the market. My backend can't cover all this 
different versions. I will update the hp_rts88xx webside in few days.
