Default Color pictures by PIBWL - release 3 (2019)

Here is the ultimate updated consolidated pack of my color pictures for WinSPWW2 version 12. If you are not familiar with them so far, you can read more about the color pictures in the subject: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=49519 and second part http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=51002 (and on my page http://derela.pl/colorp1.htm).

The pictures should be copied to WinSPWW2 -> Game Data -> Pictures folder. Since they replace original black and white photographs, it is recommended to create a backup copy of a whole Pictures folder first, in case you wanted to return to photographs.

The pack covers almost all tanks, fighting vehicles, aircraft, HMGs, most of trucks, guns and support weapons. I've removed part of pictures, that are not in use anymore - except for more popular units, mostly German, so that they should show up in older scenarios as well.

An useless fun feature, that I've played with, is that most of light tanks' pictures are in a similar scale now (1px:35mm) (except for Stuarts, which were so big, that they would come ouf of a frame...). Therefore, some smaller tanks, like R-35, may seem too small - they were really THAT small. Also the tankettes are in a similiar 1:25 scale. Details are in the attached text file, as well as origin of most of pictures. Special thanks must go to http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/

A feedback is welcome. There are possible small updates, if I find pictures better enough. I'm thinking about SPMBT as well, but I don't want to start such a big task, unless there is an interest...

The pictures don't affect a game play itself, and have no effect on PBEM games, but I'm obliged to put a disclaimer:
