Printable modern aircraft carrier deck section

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I just toyed around a little bit with Illustrator and Photoshop to make a diorama base for my models.

I want to share this with you, so you can download it, if you want. Please tell me what you think.

If you print it out on A3, then it is scaled for 1/48

The Image here is a small preview picture.

Here's the link to the high-res version:

Greetings,

Markus

That's nice Markus! Thanks for sharing that. Is there any way you can put the high-res in a form other than .tif?

Neat idea! How much would it need to be reduced for 1/72?

Scott

It should be scaled to 66% (approximately A4)

That will come in VERY handy. Another Idea you might want to consider is to make this base with only the black non-skid and tie-downs, but without the stripes. That way, a diorama-maker ("dioramist?") could move the lines around a little to represent another place on the ship, or even in the hangar deck, using their own editing program.

If anyone wanted to do a tarmac base, that would be terrific, too.

I always wanted to scan those model-box bases that Monogram did a few years ago. They had a carrier deck printed on the back of the Navy planes, and a tarmac for the Air Force planes. ( I think the cars had a street base)

Maybe I try a tarmac base, but I don't know when.

For the carrier base without markings: this is no problem at all. I still have the multi-layer file, so all I need to do is to delete the layer with the markings and flatten the image. Maybe I'll write a tutorial tomorrow.... It is not really difficult.

That is very very nice and extremely handy to boot!.

Now can the clever amongst you let me know what the proportions are for a 1/32 resize?

(im rubbish at maths)

so are your still going to share with us the tutorials on how to make this? :bandhead2:

I will, but I don't have much time at the moment, and also no access to an english version of Photoshop.

I will make a tutorial in the second half of January.

For a plain Version without Tie-Downs: Write me a PM...

Do you do any other types, like a regular runway?

Yes that would be really nice, or maybe if anyone has any useful link for printable

regular runways for 1/144 or 1/72.
