Hello there, dear friends...

As I said in the thread name, I want to make some 2d top view, but can't find correct scale!

I'm not looking for Bombers or any other "big" airplane, right now.

Here are photos of what I plan to use as material! It's a type of clams which can be found in / around Thailand. I don't know their name, sorry.



Bigger one is about 6.5 * 7 cm and smaller one is about 6.5 * 6 cm.

They are very thin and fragile, but also beautiful.

Some other questions:

1- in your opinion, WW2 era planes fit better or modern ones?

2- Where to find simplified blueprints?

Ad 1. IMHO no matter which one. All depends on the way you want to present the aircraft

AD2. What kind of blueprints? Profiles eg ...?
1- the first and most important, by now, would be 2d modelling experience by seashells. If successful, I'll go for making accessories and tablues, based on historical aircrafts.

2- the ones with 3 views, or just top view of several different planes.
