new images for 'template'

I failed three attempts to add two new views for the "template' thread.I'm trying this new thread to see if it will accept the files.
If it works,these will be working drawings from last year:
*underside plan view illustrating wheels and canoe fairings
*rear elevation depicting elliptical morph to semi-circular sections.
Nope,3-strikes and I'm out!
I'll try next week.I won't even attempt the Bochum University solar car photos.


Okay,finally got it to go.Sorry its spread over two different threads.

Maybe you could throw them up using a photbucket account and get another member to post them into the files here.

you might try using imgur.com. It accepts pretty large files and resizes them if they are too big.

I joined photobucket and managed to upload the two photos,but now don't know how to email them over here to this thread.If I was 7-years old it would be a breeze!
I guess I was born to the wrong century!

I have a Photobucket account.

Once you have loaded the image and it is in one of your albums, move your cursor (arrowhead or pointing finger) over one of the images.

A bunch of selections should drop down without you actually clicking anything.

Move your mouse down to the last item (IMG choice) and click once to copy.

Then come on over to the forum to post and press the Ctrl button and the "v" button at the same time to "paste" your selection (picture) into the thread.

Looks sweet, Phil!

I'm wondering how well this plan view follows the template. From widest point it seems to "curve" to terminal taper (ie, ~22 deg ostensibly) about one-half width behind the widest point, then pretty much taper back "straight" from there.



Are my eyes just playing tricks on my brain?

The plan is wider than the template in the rear, but as I understand it, it's better to go at less of an angle, than greater than template angle.

Would be a good candidate for a Beaver-Tail though.

Rear view does not seem to match plan, I suggest flattening the tail (Beaver Tail).
