You could place a link to the texture, otherwise quite good.
Also mountainking is a poor model choice for such a tutorial since it doesn't show up so well in the model viewers.

and hoe is one able to delete faces?
i mean, what shall i do if i want to isolate the helmet of one unit to put it on another one?
Most of the times the needed parts are just a part of a geoset, but i dont want to import anything more than the helmet as it is...
