Scratch Builder ww2 Top-Downs Cardboard Ideas


Scratch Builder Cardboard ideas are an expansion to scratch builder monthly and present a single project. In this document mj hobby corner shows a low budget way of making a card board Top-down representation of ww2 American armor for war gaming. 

This issue concentrates on three Top down types, the American M4 Sherman, M18 Hellcat and firefly variants. Also included is a section on an upgrade sherman that improves turret appearance. The projects are illustrated in a step by step format to show how the tanks are built. These projects vary in complexity but usually take a few hours to complete entire forces of units. Emphasis is on the sherman tank, since the steps are the same for building the chasis of the other vehicles.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
