Default New Picture Gallery for every car on Madabout



It's been a long time coming but we've finally done it!!

Each and every car listed on Madabout-Kitcars now has a picture gallery which can hold a limitless amount of pictures for your perusal.

We are often asked for bigger and better pictures of the cars we list so now we can oblige.

Take a look here as an example of the Sumo gallery

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/kitc...ery.php?cid=76

To start the ball rolling we have uploaded over 500 images but we want more!!! We want to create the biggest repository of freely available kit car images in the world...seriously.

We intend to collect hundreds more images from the shows this year but also need your help.

Each gallery has a form which enables anyone to upload the images they have for a particular kit car, it couldn't be simpler.

For example, if you have a picture (or pictures) of a Dax Rush simply go to the Dax Rush car details page, click on the picture gallery link and then using the form on that page upload your pictures, job done.

We reckon, collectively there must be tens of thousands of kit car images sitting on peoples hard drives, so why not share them and put them up on Madabout for everyone to drool over.

Each image can have a Credit link so if you want to be credited for the image you can, this also includes a link back to your website.

Any kit car images are acceptable, the more the merrier. They don't have to be of completed cars, in fact build images are often more of use to people as they can use them as a reference when building their own car.

So lets get going, please join in and lets build a huge database of kit car images.

Cheers all

John

Hi,

Each car has it's own picture gallery so all you need to do is go to the car details page of the car you are interested in either via the kit car search page or via the manufacturer page.

The gallery is then accessed via the 'see more pictures in the gallery' link which is under the thumbnail pictures of the car.

This is the gallery for the Westfield for example

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/99/picgallery.htm

Accessed from the Westfield kit car details page

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/kitc...details.php?99

I havn't split the Westfield up yet into it's various derivitives but it's on the list.....

Hope this helps.

Cheers, John

Thumbs up Now even easier

We've now made it even easier to get to the picture galleries of each model.

We've created a 'master' gallery page which lists all the makes and models which has a direct link to each gallery.

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/kitc...re-gallery.php

This page is accessible from the left hand navigation as per the rest of the site content.

The gallery is still accessible from the individual car details page as well.

This should make browsing the galleries easier.

Cheers, John

Hi, just a couple of pointers, you have a Red Roadster image listed under the Parallel Designs image gallery, this is in fact from DH Supercars, formerly Hand Crafted Cars and now indeed called DC Supercars, Parallel Designs do not produce a Roadster at this time.

Secondly you have several shots of the Orange Roadster belonging to Garry Biddiss in the HCC gallery which refer to it as an RD1, it isn't called an RD1 it is just the Roadster, HCC never carried over the RD1 name to their new product.

I hope this info helps make your site become as big as you aim to.

I use Flicker, it's fairly simple (needs to be for me!) and there seems to be plenty of capacity. I have quite a few pix loaded and I have hardly made a dent in my allowance.

One thought, I only post screen shots, I find the image I want to upload in Adobe Lightroom make any adjustments then I take a selective screen shot, shift+command+4 (Mac OS) which places it on my desktop; I then drag that to the upload screen of Flicker. Screen shots are good because they are usually much smaller than the raw images I store in my computer, and it saves messing about exporting JPEGS. A screen shot also strips any personal data like GPS locations or personal names etc. which are often embedded in the EXIF of a JPEG.

You have missed out on the McCoy, how can pages be added to include it?

Hi John,
Have I missed something? Your listing is by manufacturer, (a) there is no "Own Design" and (b) there is no way of searching for a particular model, e.g. Ferrari 275 in my case.
Otherwise, a very welcome effort. Thanks.
George

Hey guys,

Great project you got going on! I've had a hard time myself finding pictures of certain models; especially some of those whose manufacturers have closed down over the years.
Anyway, I'm currently doing a university project regarding Lotus 7-style kit cars, together with Axon Automotive and we've designed a kit car that makes partial use of Carbon fibre for the CHASSIS.
Essentially the tub, where the passengers sit, has been replaced with carbon fibre while the front and back part of the chassis are maintained with the original steel chassis frame.
I'm conducting a very quick survey to understand your perspective on this carbon fibre tub (which is in essence a piece of innovation to a car that has not had much modifications on the chassis for at least the last 20 years). I'd really appreciate therefore if you could spare 2 minutes to answer this survey and share your thoughts. All your responses will be stored anonymously and you'll be able to find more information about the Tub in the survey itself. The link is below.

Cheers guys!

Will

Hi 1iTim,

Thanks for the information. I will have a look online and see what I can dig out on the carbon-alu 7. In the meantime, I'd be grateful if you could spare just a couple of minutes to answer the survey that I'm conducting as part of my university project for the carbon fibre tub. The link is below and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Cheers!

On your "Kit Car Picture gallery A to Z" page you don't have
Fiberfab Valkyrie. The Valkyrie is a GT sports car introduced 1967 by a U.S. company called Fiberfab. The Valkyrie's styling was inspired by the lines of the famous Ford GT40 race car.
