1. What scale is FD scale?

FD scale is 22.093 pixels = 1 meter

2. What does FD stand for?

'FD' stands for 'Forum Defensia'. The scale was originally developed by an Italian military forum using Shipbucket-style shading, coloring, and templates.

Please post anymore FD scale frequently asked questions and a mod will add them to the OP.

where to find the templates, and template rules, I suppose? (I have to look for these every time I draw anything in FD, so might be good to add)

I don't know the answers to most questions - so feel free to post both a question and an answer if you have them. ;)

FYI: Template is wrong for MS Paint, for that you want Country, Name Class to be Arial 10, and Credit Arial 7, trust me, it's from experience.

The template was created for Photoshop canvases with a resolution of 72dpi.

Garbage posts deleted - this is not a thread for asking if a certain vehicle has been drawn in FD scale! Use this thread for questions about the style itself.

What if I wish to draw something that doesn't fit in the template? Or if I wish to draw multiple variants? I've seen a few people place several variants of a vehicle on one image.

In addition to this, what is the spacing (in pixels) when placing variants horizontally and/or vertically?
