Hahaha, that sounds way too familiar, I have a bunch of texture files in a folder, I keep thinking to myself that I need to organize it. I even bought a program a while back on sale just for downloading premade textures on their site that I can modify and use in Photoshop called Filter Forge (and commercially use if need be), lol.
That's still a neat texture, kinda a liquid chrome!

This project isn't complete without the box trailer build. I firmly believe that a set is three or more. For the set to be complete, I need the box trailer. Especially since it only needs built. Last night I revisited this, looking at the files, looking for mistakes. I don't see any. This has to be on my short list
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

2nd wettest May on record...
As far as the Cat version, I think I am going to modify the front end to be more Semi-like. I'm thinking of creating a bonnet, which got me away from doing my YRC build. I also was looking up Alien stuff

Had a bit of a hiccup with the YRC version. The other day when I was getting ready to print, page 3 looked too dark and too red, like my first version, so I went into Gimp and double checked the color, picking the yellow-orange from page 1 and pasting, with no visual difference to the page in Gimp. pulled up the pdf again, and still looked dark. Back to Gimp. Using color select, I deleted the color from page 3 and paint filled with the color from page 1, etc. and when I pulled up the pdf, it was still too dark and too red, but I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. So I printed and it didn't look as bad, but not right. Went ahead and built it and when I installed it, it was too dark and too red. So I went back to my blank sleeper page (page 3) and started from scratch, laying it out on my color palette page, and exported the new versions. And It Looked Right! Printed a new sleeper unit and proceeded to cut off the old sleeper. Have yet to install it
As far as the more truck-like front end. I came up with something that will fit over the front end, but the Onager is not 'slab-sided'. It has angled surfaces, and the overlay kept having to be tweaked and I'm not happy with it. Maybe the Onager needs to just stay an Onager
EDIT 2 --
While removing the sleeper, I somewhat smooshed the left side of the cab, so I removed it, too. I hear of folks cutting out parts that aren't quite right, and I always thought they were leaning a bit too much towards the perfectionist side. Now I am one of them ...

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I don't get seinfeld either to be fair so its not a british humour thing. I *can* quote Red Dwarf episodes.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
