Line Drawing of Plus 2 required

PostPost by: terryp » Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:30 am

Hello
We are having a plaque made for our +2 meeting and need a picture
Has anyone a good scan of a line drawing of a Plus 2 , not the cutaway.
I found this but its too small!

Thanks
Terry

isnt there some online 'free' software that will convert your favourite pictures into a 'sketch'....line drawing sort of...depending on the picture I guess....

:mrgreen:



found one on line.....
just try to get a pic with no 'detritus' in the picture........it'll have a field day trying to sketch all that :)

cheers

Hi Terry,

I don't think I've ever seen a line drawing of a Plus 2.

Gareth is right, the success of those line trace tools is very dependant on original image - it's almost impossible to have a photo without 'detritus', in other words shadow, reflections etc and these combine to make the resultant image less like a line drawing. I did these in photshop to show what I mean, image was taken with my phone which is not ideal and it has a lot of detritus (trees) :)

Cheers

Robbie

Thanks Robbie & Gareth
So really due to the detritus it has to be an original of that American advert or I enlarge and trace manually UG!

Someone must have that advert as I'm sure I nearly bought it once on eBay?

Cheers

Hi, i'm sure there's a line drawing (not cutaway sections) included in the German reproduced factory manual.

Terry, if I scan the drawing in the German reproduction, can I have a free stay in one of your gites?

I've got the book in front of me, only problem is how to scan such a thick book.

Regards
Gerry

PS, managed now to scan the book. What file format should I use to post the image?
