It should be noted that with 9.15 dropping, several of my older skins seem to have re-gained proper functionality (the t57 heavy and t28 are examples). I will be on the lookout for other skins that have done the same. I will also be finally finishing up the blackjack t34 tomorrow. Its taken far too long, but such is the way of life.
I have also noticed wargaming have overstepped their bounds and HD'd my precious t-46. Ah well, that skin wasn't really anything special anyway.
edit: wargaming have also added the ability to "preview" tanks you do not yet have access to (much as you could do so in WoWS pretty much from day one). this means that the lack of a tank inspector for skinning is no longer a significant issue! Of course, it only applies to tanks that are listed in the tech tree, but this is still great news! (if that happened before 9.15, i didn't notice)
