Default Modular IG tanks [would anyone be interested?]

as it says. i have made a few varieties for my tanks, i made some templates so people could cut out their own sections for other tanks [like salamanders and variant russ's]. is anyone interested or would i be wasting my time to do it?

i'm currently trying to upload more images to put up, a few russ variants, very easy to make.

if there is any specific vehicle anyone wants to see, just ask and i'll give it a go, then i'll put up the template so you can make your own [just give me time]

What? That's brilliant! How could you not be happy with that?! It's damn near perfect! (if perhaps a little chaos-esque)

[soz for double post]

well, there's obviously a fair amount of interest, give me a little while. i'll get on with it very soon and put it up en-mass, i'm gonna try to include my russ variants and how i made the guns. and i'll include a way of making a cool looking manticore. maybe even making my hydra better.

i will make rough templates with the right shapes [ i don't know how to make perfectly sized templates] and just write down the exact measurements.

list of vehicles to be included:
hydra
manticore
salamander
griffon

russ's:
exterminator
annihalator
executioner

any others, just ask.
