Very impressed!   Must have been fun lining up the camo edges on the Shermans.  Hopefully the quality of your work will catch the eye of @Battlefront.com and get you deservedly on the team.

GMC CCKW -
First attempt at 'dusting' - Each vehicle texture set usually has a plain an 'muddy' version, so I used muddy areas as a basis for dust starting point.

Actually pretty simple. Once you've selected the area just right click and use 'refine edges'. I smoothed them out a bit so the lines are never completely parallel.

You are the new Martha Stewart of CM vehicle modding! Glad to have you onboard. :D

When can we get our greedy little hands on these files sir?
