Correct.... yes let's also keep  the entries appropriate for the all of the forums rules.  So if you want to put a girl on the side of your tank make sure all the appropriate parts are covered please and thank you.

Is there a specific tank we have to skin, or can we choose any tank?

Can we submit more than one entry (different tank)?

i have no skills in skin making, but i have an awesome idea, take the M3 Lee and paint a false silhouette of the T40 TD on all sides with the Lees hull above that painted sky blue or something.

the punchline is of course that the T40 is the Lee on spring break, as it's the same tank only 'topless'.

I know it isn't allowed, but there are going to be many pairs of breasts submitted... Hope the judges won't need to stand up very often.

Are model replacements allowed? Might cause some problems if they are...

Bravo, finally something encouraging the skinners to branch out from the thousands of generic realistic skins! I like bright but at least somewhat tasteful skins and look forward to the results.

well bummer, not the contest I thought that'll show up. Wasted 2hrs trying to figure out how to open the dds file using the failed non-working converter & I have no idea on how to skin. Im waiting next month on what the creative contest will be.

http://forum.worldof...garage-re-skin/

http://forum.worldof...premium-hangar/

Edit* they are for garages but the same principles work on tanks.  GL out there
