Hi Guille and Akkula, thank you both so much my friends.

I already have a file made up of T34 details. They are sized and include the rear fuel tanks. The rear fuel "boxes" fit right on the rear of the unit icon like they belong. Yes I will make a grey version of these tanks that is plain, also making it for Akkula for the Soviet version's variations. And I will post a file of units with masks on Mediafire when all are done. I am having so much fun making German versions, I don't know when to stop.

I found a really nice German tool set that goes on the side of the T34-43, but by the time I get it sized down, it loses a great deal of detail. Still experimenting with it.

As for the "bedspring" panels the Soviet tanks had on them in late war Germany, especially Berlin, I have given that detail some thought and am working on how to make it look the best. It will hide a lot of details on the tank and turret in any case, but I am confident I can produce something acceptable for you Akkula.

Will put together a T34 Maker kit with special files like PHCAS did for those who want it. I use both Gimp and NetPaint to do this stuff, but find that NetPAINT works easiest to take the details from the file and put them on the tank in the right position when using a template, but Gimp works best for individual placement of detail items when making individual details on each side of a unit icon.

Nice that you are making a T34-57 Guille. I look forward to getting these. Stay tuned for the additional units and details, masks, etc. Will follow shortly. :wink:

Here are a couple more T34 43 units I made. I am working on a larger group and thought I would post these. Everything will have masks for skinning. These are about as "German" as a T34 43 can get. They have the Pz Cupola, skirts on one tank and both have a German tool set on the front left side under the turret. Unfortunately this beautiful set loses much detail when sizing down for the units, but at least it shows up a little.

Also making Russian versions for Akkula without all the German accessories.

I promised some more T34-43 German units skinned, so here are the rest. I am also including a link at Mediafire with all the units and masks along with other stuff. I did the basic units for Guille and Akkula.

I ran across an interesting Paper Panzer project that was not produced. I thought it might be someone's imagination post WWII, but it seems it was an idea proposed at some point. Hetzer (Skoda) 38(t) chassis, PzIV turret and L48 75mm gun.

Would have been an awesome AFV if it would have been possible and produced.

REWORKED THIS UNIT AND MADE NEW UNIT WITH MASKS AND SKINS.

Here is another Oddball Panzer variation that was considered. The Panzer IV chassis with the Panther Schmalturm turret and an L70 75mm gun. (the original was considered with a Panzer IV H hull/chassis).

It would have been quite a devastating little tank hunter.

Various icon units contributed, notably the great Schmalturm Guille sent to me and I used his Panzer IV K hull (better ballistics on front and because it is sorta "Pantherish" looking). Once again, Asuser's Thoma schurtzen get put to use. I love those things.

I know the Panzer looks odd, but what the heck...........It had an L70 7.5cm just like a Panther without the breakdowns because it was to have been a Panzer IV. I will NOT be making any spaceships, zombies or stuff like that. :lol:

Several more Panzer IV H Ausf F Panthers. If somebody wants me to make versions with the Panzer IV H hull and chassis, just post on the thread. I've figured out now how to make them pretty easily.

Fantastic, just fantastic. Beautiful prototypes flak, impressive details as always.

And INFINITE thanks for the terrific T-34-43 pack, I will make good use of it... indeed the next release of Soviet Storm will have a lot of new colours :)
Keep it up with your fantastic job.

Best regards.

Thanks for the kind words Akkula. I will be honored to have some of my work in your mod. Afterall, it is one of the best done in the game.

BTW.......GUILLE, THE OTHER GREAT ARGENTINE ARTIST, HAS SAVED THE SCHMALTURM PANTHERS FROM MEDIOCRITY AND INACCURACY. He sent me a zip folder of reworked Panther F and Panther II units. They were not the same even though many people get them mixed up and mixed together. They certainly were NOT the E50. Cosmetically the Panther F and Panther II are very close, but had the Panther II been produced, it would have had heavier armor, a more powerful engine and most likely a larger turret than the Schmalturm. The Panther II project was cancelled in 1943, the Schmalturm turret was not produced until 1944. But our version of the Panther II will have both, with the L70 gun as seen on the Schmalturm. I will be making masks, detailing and some slight modifications for variation, but all the credit goes to Guille, again!!!!!! :)

Flak: After carefully looking at the drawings you uploaded above, I just sent two corrected icons for the Panther II, one with regular Panter turret and the other with the Schmallturm... I retouched the exhaust ducts which can be seen are smaller than the ones in the Panther Ausf. F Also, the MG hull mount was "mirrored" :shock:

Thanks for your always kind words! :D 8)

That is a very interesting unit. I will see what I can do. I am not much of a true "original" unit icon maker and have to rely on units and various parts of units already made to manage to create the units I do. This one is a challenge, but if I cannot get it done, I know some very capable modders who can do it when they find the time. We shall see.

A few more of the Hybrid Hetzer 38(t) and Pzr IV turret with L48 7.5cm
I reworked this unit and am now satisfied with it even if I am the only person that likes it. I do like experimental and project panzers quite a bit.

All new units are made to a very high standrad, ther are very good! By the way, looking at your Pz 38 variant with a Pz IV turret, I learned that there also were two other interesting hybrid projects (amogst many others I suppose): A recon variant of the Pz 38 with the turret of the Puma 8x8 armored car, and the same turret mounted on a Panther chassis... Very interesting "paper panzers" also! :-)

Thanks for the images Guille. I will look into these panzers after I have done some other Soviet T34 mods, the Panther F and Panther II. I am really happy to have so many interesting, for me at least, panzers to consider and work on. :)

Guille graciously sent me a Flamm Tiger I unit and I am so grateful to him for doing it. Of course it never existed in reality, but of course Panzer Corps has a way of changing the battles and outcomes of WWII and the associated equipment.
I am posting images of some FlammPanzers in the next few postings as I found the units in one of my files I had overlooked before when I made a bunch of FlammPanzers for the forum with masks.
I also made two Russian Flame Tanks, the T34-43 and the KV 8. So if any one wants to level the playing field for Flammpanzers for the Soviets, here are two units. You will have to make up the effects flames yourself as I have none, but then there are so many talented people on the forum, I don't think it will be a problem getting some made. There are seven different Flammpanzers and Soviet tanks in the file.
