Hi guys

I guess this forum section kinda matches what I'm trying to ask, but if not, I apologise.
Bah, I'm not actually requesting the addon, but I guess a request for help still belongs in the addon request section... my bad.

I decided to try my hand at making my own mod, I noticed there weren't any CBRN or NBC mods that I could find, which I wanted to make my zombie missions that much more authentic. All I really needed to do, was get a British unit, with out rolled up sleeves and then add black rubber boots and gloves, and an S-10 gas mask or/as well as a US unit with an M-40 gas mask (Or just the GSR on both of 'em). I thought that maybe that could be quite a simple task for a first addon...
Maybe I'm an idiot, but turns out, It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be %)
Not that I thought all addon making was easy or something, but it made me realise just how hard it is to make an addon.

This is kinda what I wanted to achieve:

British CBRN

US Army CBRN (guy on the right, but with skin completely covered)

Would I have to make my player model from scratch or could I use BIS British armed forces models? (or is that a breach of copyright?...)
All I'm asking for really is just a nudge in the right direction, I tried looking at a tutorial on Oxygen 2 on YouTube, but it didn't really help out much, although I guess It got me sorta familiar with where some of the tools are in it.

By the way, the gas mask serves no purpose, this is purely for aesthetics.

Any help would be much appreciated :-)
