Thank you for your interest in contributing content to YV400.

The goal of the YV400 photo gallery is to compile a collection of photos of aircraft models, dioramas, and related subjects that stand out in some way. We want to show a selection of those exceptional images that are the result of the meticulousness of the photographer. 

To achieve the aforementioned goal, all images uploaded to the site will go through a screening process before being accepted or rejected. Please visit the Photo Requirements page to learn more.

Only upload photos of which you are the copyright holderThe copyright © of the photos uploaded to YV400 remains the property of the respective author. The YV400 team may share links to photos uploaded to the site to promote both, the respective photo and the site. 

Using the upload form:

  • Uploading multiple photos of the same subject: The photo upload form allows users to upload up to 5 images at a time. However, this option shall only be used to upload multiple photos of the same subject as the other information included in the form (airline, aircraft type, etc.) will be the same for all of them.

Photos of different subjects must be uploaded separately. Not complying with this request is grounds for rejection of the upload by the screeners.  

  • File formats and sizes: The following formats and size limits are recommended: .JPEG, .PNG, 2000px (long side), 3MB. Exceptions will be granted on a case-by-case basis.

  • Inapplicable information: If some of the information requested in the form does not apply to the photo that you are uploading select the N/A or Unknown as applicable.

  • Photos of multiple aircraft models: For photos that include multiple subjects that do not share the same information please use the fields that include the word Multiple (Multiple Airlines, Multiple Aircraft, Multiple Brands, etc.). If the subjects have different registrations please write Multiple Regs. on the Registration field. 

  • Photos of subjects other than aircraft: For photos of airport dioramas you may select Airport from the Aircraft Type dropdown and submit the IATA/ICAO code in the Registration field. For ground service equipment select GSE from the Aircraft Type dropdown; you may fill out the registration field as appropriate (N/A and Unknown are options). 

  • The database is growing: If you would like to have a new airline, aircraft, model brand, scale, or category added to the site, please submit a request on the add to the database page (must be signed in).
