    Sweet, that's the speaker. Its wires will be in the corrugated tubing.

    The bottom tire is stretched, nothing can change that as the math is what it is. So, I'll heavily weather and tear the bottom tire while keeping the top tire new and only dusty. Seems to visually tell the story that the team replaced a wheel.

    This is the inner compartment taking shape. The structure removes and layers inside open up with hatches.

    Organizing and figuring out the cleanest wiring paths.

    Just dropped and broke my Samsung Note8 documenting the previous step. $319 for a new screen.

    This stuff is relatively boring as far as builds come. But, it's all about good organization and wiring. I'm bad at organizing, but aware of that fact and just take more time and force the exciting aesthetic stuff to wait until the core of the truck's architecture is completed.

    I'll continue developing the truck's core storage of electronics, batteries, weights and motor. There are plenty of scale details that will be visible when the truck's side walls are opened as shown in the photos of the 1:1 truck.

    Ok, now I have a lot of sanding, puttying, painting and detailing of the inner structure to do. It won't typically be seen, but open side door shots will look cool with some detail showing inside.

    Note, the flat horizontal styrene sheet is simply a working platform that will eventually be removed as it's not in the actual truck.

    Also, it's time to begin cutting the cab apart to get the true cut of the 1:1 truck. The Tamiya Scania cab is nice, but it's a version with a rear sleeping area. All that needs to be cut out along with the top of the cab. A new flat roof of sorts will replace it as seen in the 1:1 photos.

    I made a quick list of stuff to work on so I don't forget.

    More fun than sterile and perfect CAD.
