Scale drawings prepared in Shipbucket style or ... lookalike


Drawings illustrating elements of the game are present in many areas of these pages.   Some have been prepared in a format ressembling the ones used on www.shipbucket.com; some of these particular drawings are listed here.  Experienced shipbucket readers will see that the strict SB drawing rules are not always respected, nor are the sizes of the template for reasons of expediency.   Regarding the non respect of SB drawings rules, the following reasons are to be blamed : 
1) The software used (Microsoft Image Composer 1.5) seems to offer a lesser amount of colour shades, restricting these drawings to a lesser number of different colors.  Then, it could my misusing the facilities offered...   But that's why Shipbuckets work are far better (I think)
2) The exclusive use of black colour to outline contours prevents elements to be discriminated from each other (eg: an engine on a wing)   Therefore, colours different than black are sometimes (often ?) used
3) With glass (windows, cockpit, ...) being illustrated in a given manner with Shipbucket, my using a different way should just be seen as a personal preference.   The same may apply to other Shipbucket's standards (aircraft wheels, ...)
4) The above should not be read as a criticism to Shipbucket (as said, their drawings are generally speaking better detailed and more elaborate than mine) but explains why my drawings are not elligible to be published with Shipbucket.  

 

Hopefully, AAC's "Scale 22" is close enough to Shipbucket's FD scale to be considered as equal, so should any SB artist wish to divert my drawings and bring them to SB standards, please feel welcome to do so.   Getting in touch would even be better and while our aims are different, any suggestion to correct AAC drawings are welcome.   Naturally if any SB artist believes that I forgot to mention an author's name (when re-working or using existing drawings), please accept my apologize - just let me know to allow me to correct any such blunder asap.

Listing

 
Considering the very "volatile" nature of these illustrations (many are working documents only and subject to renaming or .... anihilation !), when appropriate a "Shipbucket-Like list of Illustrations" is prepared where all "final" illustrations are referred to.   Much easier for us to update....   Then, each AAC aircraft is illustrated in FD (perhaps SB) scale "thumbnails" - the interrested reader should visit the appropriate AIRCRAFT pages as they are made ready
