Title: Posting Aircraft Illustrations and Profiles
Post by: ChuckAnderson on 20 October 2011, 06:16:16
Hi Everyone!

I'd like to start posting aircraft illustrations, profiles and line drawings on the forum, and if it's O.K. to do so, then what category would I post it under?

It would be nice to have a resource like that in this forum, and we could even become a destination for people interested in this subject. (We could even give some of the aircraft sites some competition in this area.)

check the aerial equipment section, would that be the right place? http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/aerial-equipment/ (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/aerial-equipment/)

If there have accumulated many posts of the same character (like drawings) we could make a sub-board

Just an idea,

Rattler

After having seen the first results, I wonder if it might not be a good idea to write a short synopsis of specs/history/role for each of those a/c below them?  

My guess is that many people wont know what the x-wing project was (or is, for that matter: Has been revived by Boeing) if they are not aviatioin enthusiasts and the synopsis/summary might be found interesting. I would refrain, though, from just adding the Wikipedia page, we should find our own format if we want to do that.

Hi Rattler!

Thanks for bringing this up!  The reason that I didn't write a small synopsis is because I thought that members of this forum were already pretty well-acquainted with the information I was posting!

I'll follow your suggestion and add more information when I post.

I like the aircraft skins you post, how do you do them, Photoshop?
