Free 1/76 scale plans by the hundreds (Mick Bell)
Permalink   


Maybe news to some of you:

http://mickbellplans.com/

There are literally hundreds of plans, including some WW1 and interwar stuff (little armour though) from Minerva a/c and Ehrhardt 1917 to Schneider howitzer.

"The late Mick Bell produced over 400 high quality technical drawings and plans of military vehicles at 1/76 scale, for use by modellers and vehicle enthusiasts. Since his death in 2007, these have not been readily available. The purpose of this website, created by his son, is to make these drawings available again as high-resolution digital copies.

 

Each drawing has its own page, showing a low-resolution preview of the drawing, with a link to the full-size high-res image. The pages are categorised by country, and are also tagged with vehicle manufacturers and types, for ease of browsing. A full index of the plans is provided(...).

 

The drawings have been scanned at 600 dpi, and are all A4 size. Printing them onto A4 (with no margin) should reproduce the original dimensions, although a laser printer may be required to preserve the finer detail. Most of the plans are at 1/76 scale, but could easily be printed to different scales. For example, printing a 1/76 plan at 106% (76/72) should convert it to 1/72 scale.  A few plans are at other scales: this is stated clearly on the plan and the relevant page.

The drawings are all (...) free to share and adapt, even for commercial purposes, as long as appropriate attribution is given to the original creator, Mick Bell."

This is wonderful news and a very generous offer. I knew Mick and had the pleasure of visiting him and his family at home at "The Belfry" a long time ago. It's so good to hear that the drawings will continue to be available for other people to use.

Thanks for posting the link Pat that's incredibly useful.

I have several sets of Mick Bell scale plans from the MAFVA Tankette magazine, always accurate and really well drawn.

Hi!

Some of the plans of the English tanks are designated as "Missing"

This means that they are lost, or they will appear later?

Best regards!

Quoting from the website:

"There are a few drawings missing, for two main reasons: they were on A3, or they are saved digitally as DWG files. I plan to tackle both of these groups of drawings at some point in the future."

I found no additional information.
