There have been many tanks in history named 'Thunderbolt'. 7 of them were commanded by Col. Creighton Abrams in World War II. The Austrailian ACIII cruiser tank also took on the name 'Thunderbolt'. And now there is another, a Centurion Mk. 9. My personal Centurion and the mascot of this site.
'Thunderbolt' started out as a way for me to teach myself the ins and outs of Blender and 3ds Max as I learned how to add and remove things from different tanks. It was my first serious remodel (both the IS-7 and Super Pershing were comparatively simple).
Origianlly, when I started her, I had no intention of releasing it. It was based heavily on TheFalkonett's Centurion 7/1 remodel, and I didnt feel so good about releasing it with so much of it being the same as his.
This is no longer the case. Ive reached a point where I feel 'Thunderbolt' is a separate entity. Ive still cleared it with Falkonett, but Thunderbolt is now available for download in the 'Remodels' menu at the top of your screen.
This is what she looks like now:
You can see that she has had a few additions since the last post that featured her, and shes even different from whats currently in the header.
Im so happy that I can finally release my first true remodel for everyone to enjoy and I hope you do.
