Welcome to Shipbucket.com!

The Shipbucket Project aims to create a unified archive of ship and aircraft drawings in a single uniform scale and style. Our raster pixel art is easy to edit and remix, meaning new authors can easily contribute to the project with tools as simple as MSPaint (or as advanced as Photoshop).

Shipbucket aims to be a premier learning tool for naval design (both civilian and military), and our format is suited for amateur hobbyists and serious professionals alike.

Archive availability alert and update on upcoming FD Scale vehicle support

During recent development of the FD Scale vehicle categorization system, there was an issue with the preservation of our archive database. Unfortunately, all previously posted work is no longer available on our site. We are working diligently to re-upload and categorize all drawings.

In the coming weeks, stay tuned for the unveiling of the FD Scale vehicle archive.
