Wow this is really interesting. I have always wondered if someone would come up with a way to move emblems to the front.

With a little 'Shameless' pilfering of images?

The Type 7B's are ready.

This is the 7B base Emblem.



And here's the example Emblem when done.

The basics are here.
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...21&postcount=7

You'll need a program that handles tga files.
Like PaintShop, Gimp, etc.

I pilfer images and do a copy and paste.
But I'm not a Graphics Wizard on the Computer.
(Hand me an AirBrush and I'm Killer!)

I expect Danlisa, SWCowboy, WolfHunter, and the other Graphics
Guys will have a field day with this soon.
Tarjak is doing some Historic Emblems.
Maybe he'll do some releases.

No,
I stopped doing plastic models years ago.


I'm working on plans for a Covered Bridge that I'll make with real
wood and such now.


It will be around 3 foot long.

It's based on the Bridges found in my area.




One of the Companies I do work for restores them from time to time.

I only Air Brush MotorCycles now, from time to time.
I'll dig up some photos and scan them if you'd like.

He will when he's had enough time to create enough to make it worth releasing them.

Are you planning to do turms for the II, IX, and XXI boats as well? If so then I was thinking of putting together a single pack that loads up all the turms and a bunch of historic (and maybe some non-historic) emblems. Gimme time and I'll get something together.

Biggest problem with the historic emblems is the lack of data as to positioning. the more famous boats are easy cos there a lots of photo's around showing what they looked like, but some of the more obscure boats are harder to find info on what emblems went where.

The most popular positions are either side and the front top of the turm but finding out what was where on each boat is a struggle.

I'm nearly done with the IIA
All Turms will be done!
Once I finish them all?
I'll wrap up a complete package for DL.

It's a complicated process that requires
editing with Notepad, Deep X 5.5, and 3DS Max.

OK as you UL the turms, I'll DL them and start working on the historic pack. There are plenty to do with the VIIC & VIIB so work has started but it will be a slow process as I need to find some reference that gives and indication of the location and content for each sub.

I've got the book by Georg Hagel whcih provides all of the known emblems, however some boats had an emblem for only one patrol then it was painted over, and the book unfortunately doesn't have a lot of information as to where on the turm they were.



I've got good quality scans of a few hundred of the more than 1000 emblem drawings but some of these need to be coloured which is hard from black and white images. If anyone has any photo's that show emblem locations I'd be grateful of getting a look at them to do what I can. i was thinking of do a release when I've got about 20 of the top scoring boats done that I can find source materials on emblem locations.

The 3 I done so far were done specifically because they were not side of the turm emblems and I wanted to see what could be done with this great mod of yours. Thanks for doing it.
