Actually, he's a huge Van Halen fan, so maybe something based on the Frankenstrat?

Your talking for is insignia, the Frankenstrat? If so, no problem! ;)

Here you go Klaiber... let me know if it's good. I use the Schmenkel blue for the 415 numbers.

ps: I will add it, in the next 'Tank Crew' skins bundle.

S! All,

Did some test to see if we could have a kind of flag on top, so our Air Coverage could see our German Flag?

note: also the yellow numbers, they don't really stand out... I might need to see what we can do with that yellow color.

Cheers,

These look great. 

Yellow is tough.  You'll probably have to outline it in black.

Also, the flag is okay, so long as you can't make out the swastika.  Absolutely no swastikas or Nazi / SS imagery.

Gen,

Thanks so much for taking the lead on the tank skins, one small request for my Pz.IV Ausf G. I'd like to go with just the white crosses, I think early on they went with white/black and then later on with just the white. I don't think they used both very often, I'm good with the white cross on the skirtzen and I like the number / cross combo on the turret skirtzen. Thanks again for this.

S!

S! Lipfert,

I just went and see my book 'Colour of War' and it seem's that the German Panzer Division came back with the Black & White Cross in 1943 and after. For the North Africa Panzer Unit, they did use the white cross with Red unit colors. But no trouble having your Pz-G Tank with white cross.

S! Klaiber,

I do have this rules in my mind each time I create any skins for JG1 or myself.
I will try to modify the flag so no interpretation can be made.
At this time, this skin was more a test to see how it looks and if our Air coverage can see it from above 500 meters or more!

Cheers,
GenMarkof

Hi Gen,

The germans also used a Balkenkreutz identification panel:

It would have to be quite a bit larger than what you have though, in order to be visible to overflying aircraft in my experience. This is on a Pz II, I think and covers the whole aft deck:

S! Vonrd,

Thanks so much... I was talking this pm to Butzzell to have a red circle with the German cross in it! ;)
I think that could be a great test to see if Air Coverage could view it from above.
I will try to have my tank with this tonight, I think Butzzell wants to do the Winter Storm mission for fun!

Thanks again for the info!
Cheers,
GenMarkof
