    You'll find the download link for the full-sized DIN A2 (594 x 420 mm) PDF after the picture in the spoiler tags below.

    Updated April 13, 2017 (Minor fix May 17, 2017): Version 1.8/2.3

    Changes in Version 1.8/2.3:
    • Added the Dolphin
    • Better image for the Federal Dropship with less perspective distortion
    • Corrected the hull mass of the Orca to reflect the changes in 1.8/2.3
    • Added information regarding the ships' crew size (except for the ship-launched fighters, which all have an implicit crew size of 1)
    • Corrected Landing Pad Size for the Fed. Corvette




    Space background version (dark):



    White background version:





    Updated November 4, 2016: Version 1.7/2.2

    Changes in Version 1.7/2.2:
    • Added the Beluga Liner, F63 Condor, Gu-97 Imperial Fighter, and Taipan
    • Better image for the Anaconda
    • General re-arrangements
    • PNG versions now in whopping 5k





    Updated January 20, 2016: Version 1.5.04/2.0.04

    Changes in Version 1.5.04/2.0.04:
    • Better pictures for the Anaconda, Fed. Assault Ship, Fed. Gunship, and Fer-de-Lance with less distortion and/or shine


    Things to do:
    Sooner or later, the same has to be done for the Fed. Dropship and the Type-7.



    Updated December 16, 2015: Version 1.5/2.0


    Here's the new version to match Elite Dangerous 1.5, and ED Horizons 2.0 respectively. Since I figured out what caused the problems earlier, I can finally export the chart as PDF again (although I had to change my workflow for that – on the other hand, the PDFs are now smaller).

    Changes in Version 1.5/2.0:
    • Added the Asp Scout, Cobra Mk. IV, Lakon Keelback, Federal Corvette, Imperial Cutter, and Viper Mk. IV.
    • Exchanged the picture for the Imperial Clipper (now without scratches)
    • Improved measurements for the Diamondbacks, the Imp. Eagle, the Imp. Courier, the Fed. Gunship, and the Fed. Assault Ship.


    Things to do:
    I wanted to replace some of the pictures that suffer from severe perspective distortions (primarily the Fed. Ships and the Type-7), are crooked (like the FdL), and/or are problematic for other reasons (e.g. the Anaconda, that's a bit too shiny). I already have better pictures for most of these, but haven't implemented them yet, since wanted to push out the new version for Horizons first. I will probably have them fixed with the next release.

    The version with a white background will follow shortly.





    Updated September 30, 2015: Version 1.4 (beta)



    Essentially, the new version 1.4 is done, but unfortunately, due to problems with the illustration software I use, I cannot export it as PDF at the moment. You can find a preliminary PNG version in the spoiler tags below, but it might be a while until I can upload the proper hi-res version again.

    You can still find the printable PDF version 1.3 below.

    Changes in Version 1.4 (beta):
    • Added Federal Assault Ship, Federal Gunship, and Imperial Eagle (note that the measurements of the dimensions for the Federal ships are still somewhat rough)
    • Added the Cargo Canister
    • Straightened the Anaconda and the Orca
    • Some re-arrangements




    Updated August 11, 2015: Version 1.3


    Changes (in regard to the last preview):

    • Added actual pictures for the Python, the Anaconda, the Imperial Clipper, and the Type-9 (Thanks to AlexBrentnall, Dawnfire and Mephane!)
    • Replaced the Type-7, Fer-de-Lance, (Thanks to AlexBrentnall and Mephane, again!) and the Eagle with better versions
    • Replaced Cobra Mk. III with Wireframe skinned version (Thanks to Ravenov!)
    • Added manufacturer logos
    • All image masks prettified (sooo pretty now…)
    • Improved the labels
    • Eagle now correctly labeled at "Mk. II"
    • Sources and copyright notices
    • Kitchen cleaned


    Known issues:
    • I'll have to touch up some of the manufacturer logos: the vectorisation wasn't always perfect
    • Depending on the used printer, there might be issues with the overprinting in parts of the background grid. I have yet to figure out how to get around these.



    Original Post:
    (This is in part a continuation from this thread.)

    Well, prefim's ship size comparison on reddit certainly steals somewhat the thunder from my project, but I'm working on a new poster-sized chart with all ships in Elite: Dangerous shown to scale (at least the player flyable ones). While not completed yet, I'd like to present the current state of the project to you:


    The final version will be a DIN A2 sized (594 x 420 cm), print quality PDF.

    You'll probably notice that a couple of the ships are missing a picture. Apart from the (currently) understandable omissions of the Diamondback and the Courier, the other missing ships are simply too big to take a picture of them with the debug camera when you are alone. I also want to replace the pictures of the Type-7, the Orca and the Dropship, since they are badly perspectively distorted and in the case of the Dropship even missing some parts of the winglets. (The pictures of the Adder and the Fer de Lance are also slightly problematic, since the viewpoint isn't straight from top down.)

    If anyone would like to help out with suitable pictures, I would be much obliged. You'll probably need two persons to make these pictures: one flies the ship in question, the other is the cameraman. The viewpoint should be directly above the ship, the light source dead ahead and about 45° above. The resolution should be at least 1920x1080.

    So, what do you think? Suggestions? Criticisms?

    Oh, and I might have a little teaser for a possible future extension of this project:

    Yes, these ships are to scale… ;)
    Excellent work, how are you going to fit a Type-10 in there?

    Yeah, I will have to rescale everything… *sigh* I haven't really decided on the factor yet.

    Have you considered splitting things into Seasons. Like have one poster for Elite Dangerous, one for Horizons and one for Beyond.
    It'd be a good way to get everything in nicely and it means once a season is over you can "lock" that poster design meaning you only ever have one to work on at a time and the size/scale doesn't have to change?

    Just a thought I had, may not work in practice but thought i'd suggest it. Im also still a fan although the one on my wall is a few issues out of date, I need to get a good print done again

    I never realized the Beluga was that BIG Well... I did, especially trying to get the fins through the slot . But I didn't fully appreciate how much hull there is compared to the Cutter.

    There's something seriously wrong with that ship when you compare its size with the Cutter, which is the Big Haul Ship. The hull of the Beluga swallows the Cutter's hull, yet it doesn't carry nearly as much cargo ! Must be the gym (that keeps breaking).

    its the Lido deck actually, 2 main pools and a whirlpool takes up a fair amount of space
