Custom Skins and Remodel Updates

Published by:

 Latest update 1/15/2018 , see finding aids and update information below.


Most of the remodels are not entirely mine, rather they are swaps of modules from other modders to form the specific combination or look.  These come from parts and pieces of remodels by  much more accomplished modders, including: milkym4n, Avalon, foxerfit, Desyatnik_Pansy, TheFalkonett, Historical Remodelling Project, goodman12, professor, Wollolo, deh0mbre, Yamayan, and HiBan.

I compile them to get a working model without an script changes, then do a custom skin repaint to add camo and some detail to the model skin.


For download go to the Grandpa’s Custom Skins page or the Modifications and Crew page

Also check on the  Yandex Disk  and/or my thread on NA forums

Check out Grandpa’s You Tube channel for quick looks at the mods

  • Simple method: Copy/Move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) to the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version
  • Better method: Create a folder in the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version, named vehicles.  Then move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) into the that vehicles folder.  This keeps things a little more organized.
  • Caution: Only one choice per tank will work, moving more that one choice will cause WoT to error out on loading
