A&A Unit Identification Charts

    Here’s an example of what an unprocessed shot looks like.  The original raw image was 1.46 MB in size, but for purposes of posting it here I reformatted it to reduce the file size.

    I should have mentioned in my previous post that the aircraft sculpts had to be shot from above with the lit paper below them, not from the side with the lit paper behind them.

    Some of the sculpts, by the way, were slightly translucent in my lighting set-up.  This was particularly so for the beige UK units, and especially in the case of the thin-winged Spitfire.

    Bumped.

    Bumped, for great justice!

    Thanks for the bump Midnight Reaper. I hadn’t yet looked at this thread since the move to the new forum, and I was intrigued to notice a couple of differences between its look now and its look on the old forum. First, the picture attachments display without the need to log in; in the old forum, the pictures usually remained invisible unless a user had logged in. Second, it seems that the new forum displays more posts per page than then old forum did: the thread occupies two pages, but as I recall it occupied at least three pages on the old forum. Though that’s perhaps just a customizable feature for each user.

    To see if I was just imagining the page length thing, I went looking for another one of my long threads, the Global 1940 2nd Edition Map Analysis thread, which I recall was at least four pages long on the old forum, to see how many pages it occupied here. That’s when I discovered something which I should have realized earlier: the thread URLs on the new forum are different from what they were on the old one, and therefore the URLs which I have on file (in a Word document in my computer) for various threads of particular interest to me are now obsolete. The Global 1940 2nd Edition Map Analysis thread, for example, used to be at…

    http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=36590.0
    

    …and now it’s at:

    https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/topic/26161/global-1940-2nd-edition-map-analysis?page=1
    

    On the plus side, the new URLs do have the advantage of having the thread title built into them (“global-1940-2nd-edition-map-analysis”), which is a lot more informative than the arbitrary designation “topic=36590.0”, so all in all I’m fine with the trade-off; I’d say it’s a net improvement.

    By the way, I’ve just noticed that in the first post of the Unit Identification Charts thread, which ends with the sentence “The first two charts for today are the WWI and WWII infantry charts”, the two charts in question aren’t actually there. Did they somehow get deleted during the file transfer to the new forum?

    The links for pictures did not directly transfer over when we switched to the new software. @djensen attempted to revive the old picture links, which may have only been partially successful. I would talk to @djensen to see if he can help you find the missing pictures.

    Also, let me thank you for all the work you put into this. It is both practical and beautiful and I think it’s great work, top-notch in all aspects.

    The photos transferred but the links in the posts are incorrect. I wrote a plug-in that fixed it in most cases but apparently not this one.

    @CWO-Marc Fixed. I updated the plugin for the missing photos in the middle of the topic. But for some reason the first post wasn’t showing so I manually made the change.

    Great, thanks for fixing the problem.

    Much appreciation. I enjoyed putting those charts together. I own a WWII atlas that was actually published during the war, and which contains all sorts of interesting information about the military situation around the world, and one of the sections at the back has a recogniztion chart of Allied and Axis aircraft, depicted as black silhouettes. It’s a neat feature, and it was the main inspiration for the A&A unit chart project
