I've been following the tutorial to make my own generic tank but a part i dont get (and only picked up on when reading the boning tut) is the attatching part.

What do I attatch to what and why?

Help please!

if you have 1 object as a chassis, and a couple of boxes sat on the chassis, you'll want to attach them up to make 1 object. Same with the turret, if you have a turret shape with, say, cylinders as hatches or radio ariels you should attach them all up as 1 turret object

Ah ok.

I have no idea how to skin though which is a shame, as in I open photshop, make something that looks like camo (fill square background with green, then put brown smudges over it) then I uvw unwrap it onto the face I want to. Only thing is it looks shit and it doesn't cover the whole face.

Are there any tutorials on how to skin something from scratch, and how to do it well with tanks that look real and don't look like they have been coloured in?
