SO far have come up with this:

Need to identify the Font for the name and the Red Scrolls. If anyone has any ideas feel free to let me know.

Welcome back dude (if the same handles as scs forums), I think when I did it I used a font called cabbagetown in photoshop! My version is on the workshop if you wanted to have a look?

Thanks mate and yeah, same wombat :smile:

Would love to take a look at yours if you can tell me how I get to the "workshop" to see it and thanks for the font type as well.

Ahh, ignore the above, found your "link". Great looking truck mate and I see you didn't figure how to get the shape of the name either, in other words, how to have it straight along the top and curved at the bottom :(

Cool, I am Dafman on the scs forums, you did some great skins for me and inspired me to start doing it myself so thank you for that inspiration :class:

I've had a look at my psd file and either cabbagetown std or postoffice are fonts that get closest to the real thing, this is my one:

Workshop = steam workshop and is where you can download mods without going through modsites (less pop ups), my workshop link to all my skins is in my signature

To save you searching my trans aussie paintjobs are here:
ATS: ATS Trans Australian
ETS2: ETS Trans Australian

Finally most of the skins I've released are shown here: Flickr Skins Album and my RTA thread is here: RTA Thread

any questions just let me know :biggrin:

in Photoshop it's called "warping". You can apply a particular shape to the warp eg. 'shell' which will give the desired effect.

Incidentally, is this what you're looking for?

Absolutely.
I just did an google image search for "Trans Australia logo".
More often than not, this is a great way to get transport company logos. I got a Cummins logo that was like 1200x1200px.. ended up being about 64x64 on the truck lol but looked perfect.

Thank you, I thought I’d done a search for that one at the time but my googling skills are rubbish!! I’ve got a whole folder of logos and such for other things, did that for my centurion and pbt skins iirc.

Thanks once again, will get it updated over the weekend :)

This is where I am at with the Skin:

One thing I am having an issue with is the "Light Blue Pin Striping" around the headlights ... I can't see where to place it on the Template?

Looking great man, here is how it goes around my headlights, due to the template being abit squashed you can't go all the way around just round the outer edge;

if I've not understood then imagine I have the mental capacity of a newt and I'll hopefully understand ;)
