Haven't been any for a while, I've made a few minor tweaks but I'll leave it a few days at least before I post any new pics

Aww was hoping you were going to say that you didn't dare risk uploading new pictures in case the sheer awesomeness of the skin destroyed the forums  :D

Am looking forward to the release of this skin, unless I missed a download link somewhere. As I will never reach the Panther tank, I'd love to see them drive around in this skin.

I put up a link to the unfinished version on page 20-something (I think?) of the skins thread in game discussion, but that's an even less finished version of what I've got now.

I made it my single, all-consuming goal to get to the Panther in this game and I've reached it, so I roll around all day seeing this close up :)

Any progress on this or your VK3002DB at all?

I have seen you posted a link for download of this tank in it's unfinished state in the skins thread.

I have both my VK3002DB and a fully upgraded panther would like to use a great skin for both.

No progress on the 3002, not sure if I'll bother to finish it honestly. I've seen a few floating around which look much better, and mine wasn't even based on any particularly historical colours or patterns - it was more or less just to make it look less boring while I ground my way up to the Panther.

Anyway, some shots showing the destroyed skin:

Obviously it still needs wear, as well as some way of making the tracks look less mismatched. I've also yet to do the Schmallturm (at risk of being berated, I have every intention of keeping the KwK42 in the Ausf G turret).

Oooh, what's this? An update? Surely it can't b-

http://www.project-n...al/shot_479.jpg

WELL HELLO THERE http://sae.tweek.us/...mot-monocle.gif

Nowhere near done, but some more pretty pictures:

http://www.project-n...al/shot_499.jpg

http://www.project-n...al/shot_500.jpg

http://www.project-n...al/shot_501.jpg

It won't let me post all of the images in one go, so here are links to the others:

http://www.project-n...al/shot_502.jpg
http://www.project-n...al/shot_503.jpg
http://www.project-n...al/shot_504.jpg

http://www.project-n...al/shot_506.jpg
http://www.project-n...al/shot_507.jpg
http://www.project-n...al/shot_521.jpg

Obviously as it's got a Schmallturm and a different number, this skin will be a different tank, so if you use the pre-marked version you can have either Erlkönig with the Ausf. G turret and gun or this one (yet to be named) with the Schmallturm.

The new one sure looks awesome as so with the other one.
But maybe you could add a border to the number on the turret because now it just isn't as visible as the on the other turret.
Hope you will release it soon.

Hi, can you post link on your vk3002 skin here
It's not finished yet, and I'm not sure if I will finish it; if I do, the Panther is a more pressing priority than the 3002. Sorry. I will post a new thread for it if I ever do decide to release it, though.

There actually is a border, although I think I need to play with the blending options some more. It's quite faint.

Also, should I stay with the hand-painted look, or use an actual font for the numbers on this one? I'm not sure which would look better...

I think I tend to like a font look a little better.

This maybe due to the color choice and the blending of the 105 number. Also I think the numbers are spaced too far apart on the 105.

As cool as sticking with the color scheme is, the one thing the germans did seem to do, was implement bright colors on their vehicles somewhere. nose cones on planes, all the different photos of the tanks with bright numbers, kill rings, etc etc.

Just some thoughts on how to add a splash of color to the tank, while having little impact on the overall theme.

P.S. I am also waiting the finished product.

There's one way back in the other thread.

I'll post an updated link here later, need to clean a few things up first.

It is possible to download that Panther skin of yours?

When there's a download link, then I've released it. Until then, I am not satisfied with its state and will not be doing so.

I've been playing with the colours, and in doing so, I've discovered a fair few areas where the pattern is disrupted or just doesn't exist yet. Once that's sorted and I decide on the colours once and for all, I'll get to work on wear and tear and then release it.
