Nice work. I like the loose chin-strap in particular.

What isn't showing up? Is it the leaves of the foliage when the model is applied to the helmet?

If so, it may be a save setting in Blender when using the plug-in converter. There are many places to mess up there, as you know.

It's been a few months since I did any model adaptations- the things I would check might be that the texture assignments (for the two models- helmet and any foliage applied). Sometimes things default to strange places, so I generally keep every file in a "work-in-progress" folder to avoid that.

thanks @benpark , @Anonymous_Jonze, apreciated, 

(if so, it may be a save setting in Blender when using the plug-in converter.)

What kind of functions you could suggest in the setting ? perhaps sending a screen of the config will help ?


I am working on the chinstrap behind now, and probably make the loose chinstrap public soon, I have to make some retouch again and prepare also probably for the brit can pol will see...

Paddy looks down from his bar stool up in heaven ... "Be Jeezus, some feeker is messing about with me Bedford."

...yes the Bedford is higher but the chevy is stockier and smaller, that does not prevent it from being a good truck that the canadians used,

I only dare to hope that I put it at the right height...

the chinstraps are great
to try it is to adopt it
I hope that this problem of foliage on the helmet which founds the 2 textures will be solved!

imagined the beautiful English or US ally helmets with an embossed burlap camo !!!
personally I tried Blender but now I am dumped !!

Thanks Steph to make a good pub...when I find the way to realize it I (We) can provide to change the real foliage and flowers that we want according on the scenario that we choose to play... sigh !

I'd be willing to bet we'll see actual CMPs in whatever module adds Commonwealth forces to CM:FB.....Can't see @MikeyD letting that one slide!  ;)

PS - Kind of surprised to learn we don't already have CMPs TBH, they were pretty common.

Yes perhaps I have to wait for the CMFB update, and hope that this vehicle and more wishes like Schwimwagen ... will be incorporated in these new awaiting one, crossing fingers that Steve and Staff read all ours messages... but since this append, I think lot of water will flowing in the river (the Rhin in this case) place to CMBS update first !!, thanks to your comments...

Funny Steph @Falaise I like it ...effectively one face looking very wrong, the nose is too high and has to be reworked, the other one look very nice, and with this face can go really to Hollywood, don t you ?

I am already busy to cut the bandage for the brit... but you have to help me with to count how much I have to cut and the place to put on it  (joking) very nice if we can fixe this problem !

It wasn't a criticism of the truck or your mod. It's long running joke around these parts that Paddy aka my granddad spent he entire war driving around in a Bedford full of Guinness.
