Vectorial vs Raster

Thank You all for the appreciations.

papekuraviewer, I saw that You followed the link in my signature at the thread of my project of the Sopwith Swallow. BTW You can find more at this post. Don't esitate to ask me If You have any question.

In the mean time I continue to looking for Inkscape tutorials on internet, to improve the result of texturing.

In the following screen captures You can see the first result that I reached. I found the way to covert the raster image produced by Pepakura in a vectored one, and the comparison between the two type of images when You enlarge them. I also redesigned the stencils. So, if someone would like to enlarge the model...




Nando

PS: the vectored ones are on the left, obviously.

Nando,

Personally, I think I would do all of the panel lines and basic colors in SU - with the exception of placing a marker of some sort for the X and Y axis for alignment purposes, then leave the details like stencils for a dedicated layer in Inkscape. That way you just do it once, the details are sharp and crisp, etc...

I don't well understand what You mean. If You refer to the TF-39 model, I used in SU the property "projected" of the texture and i put the image of the stencil on the side, then in Inkscape I overlapped the vectorial text on the raster image.

If You talk about the Stamps in the Sopwith thread, here below I resumed the process:

1) in SU make a cube and then transform it in a group
2) put some text (here an "A") on a face
3) transform the text from "component" to "group", then move the group to intersect the face of the cube.
4) select the cube group and edit it selecting all the faces, then click right mouse button, and select the option "intersect" the group "with the model"
5) hide or delete the text group
6) select on the face of the group the area stamped and colorize it.

I hope this help You.

Ryan,
I agree with You. I hope that You all will be patient with me, but I have to learn a bunch of things, meanwhile I slowly progress with the design of the model.

Some note about the second beta: I used a paper, weighting 120 g/m2, thicker then the first one (80 g/m2), and I doubled it for some detail (eg. the round forms).

First vectored PDF

This weekend was productive. I learned to use Inkscape a bit more and I released the first vectored PDF of the TF39.

Lockheed C-5 Galaxy design & build-tf39_07.jpg

No tabs, no instructions but a scalable design with some stencil and panel.

I'd like to propose to Peter Taft to substitute one engine of his B-52 with my TF39. Ok we have to enlarge it 4,36 times (from 1/144 to 1/33), but could be a good test for his scalability.




In my research I found on the War Birds #36 this note about the nickname:

"... The C-5 was nicknamed "Fat Albert" after a comic character - a rotund youth with a small head perched a top a trunk of great girth held upright by stubby legs - an apt likeness when viewed from the front. Detractors dubbed it "Fred", for Fantastic Ridicolous Economic Disaster - the version for polite company (DoD)"



May be someone at the Blue Angels knew the comic character and saw the same likeness with the C-130.

Yeah, baby, one step closer to the later model EB-52 Megafortress...!!!

From a documentary I watched on the Blue Angels one of the demo pilots kids saw it at a show and said it looked like Fat Albert and the name stuck.
