Rivets or structure line ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm trying to create a template for the Brewer...

At this stage I don't know if I should add rivets or secondary structure lines !

What is your opinion ?

Cool idea and good luck! :good:

I would go for rivets. From looking at close-up pictures, the plane had lots of rivets. Make them small and with reduced visibility, so that they are more visible you closer you get. Have a look at my 4k-Skyhawk-Templates to see what I mean.

If you need help, just say so. :)

generally rivets.

but consider how big the aircraft is. the bigger the bird, the less likely rivets will meaningfully show up in game. at least not without either showing up the size of hamburgers, or having a jpg/bmp the size of a major metropolitan area. OK, j/k about metro area, but you'd need a 4096 on something the size of say a C-5 to get decent rivets lined up. and then it would still be barely noticeable in game (tho you'd know they're there)

on that one tho, rivets should be fine i think

Coupi,

   Forgive my ignorance, but what are 'secondary structure lines'?

Go for both.  Yes, it will mean more work. But you will enjoy it more working on it and having the final product. 

Honestly, If you are making templates from zero - really just re-draw everything. I suggest using a 4096x4096 template or even more to draw everything. The final product can be resized - maybe it will be a little blurred but for sure will look better than made on a low-res template.

I would like to fill the new panels I've created... :smile:

Hello,

Many thanks to You ! :drinks:

I will add rivets and I will resize the templates from 2048 to 4096.

Best regards,
