Olive drab 2 camo
A slightly different proposal, I tried to apply battle dust to vehicles. :wink:

The graphical model of the M10 tank destroyer definitely needs to be improved.

Great work everyone, love the skins.

Still, I've been through all 5 or 6 pages at least twice, and I can't find the download links for any skins, Please help a newbie in distress... Thanks, Heaps

Just right-click on the selected texture (screenshot below) and save the image to your disk.
My skins are ready to put in the game folder - they are already properly signed.
The files are so small that there is no need to make links.
Note that not all skins are available, but most are.
Have fun. Soon, I share a few new ones.

Oh Thanks, Kondi, I feel kinda stupid now, I guess it was so simple I never saw what was right in front of me.

Thanks again, and great work by the way

Thanks for making these and sharing them, kondi.

Even though I don't use them, it appears there's a strong appetite in the community for historical authenticity be it by using actual camouflage or for an correct core-force. So thanks for helping out the community and keep up the good work!

The model pic you got below is an M36 tho. ;)

The color profile below is an M10 indeed. But if you refer to the turret end which is different (game vs. many pics),it seems to be detachable on the M10, like here:

But good job with those skins! :)

Thank you, Bebro :D
Of course, you're right with Jackson... :oops:
But not only turret end (I prefer standard look of Wolverine, it's very distinctive and specific with this :wink:) - I also think about these micro dots all over the hull and the turret, which spoil the effect of camouflage.

Late desert camo (Tunisia 1943) below.
But I suppose it would be suitable for the entire North African campaign.
This camo were used at El Alamein and Gazala, too.

Hey Kondi, well-done mate, I love these skins. And I know what I'm talking about, its the same as painting and I have done 1/35th scale armor for years and I am a member of the International Plastic Modeller Society (IPMS). The one I liked the best was the olive drab with the dust, same as weathering a model by dry brushing, you made those vehicles look like they were just in action. The only problem is you never posted that skin for download or I really need my eyes checked !

Thanks Again for all the work you do for the community

Brainy, if you like it so much, it's for you: olive drab with battle dust.
Thank you very much for these words, the more that you know what it's all about. :)
(However, half of the success is finding the right texture)
