They Grow Up So Fast

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

We're jumping right into this one, because we've officially hit one of the really fun stages: that point where the big pieces go in, after you basically just have a chassis with an engine on it (what it was last time, of course), but before we start going in hardcore on things like hydraulics (which are obviously pretty important, but don't present much of an obvious visual impact).

So yeah, about that.

We didn't leave out the pumps either. I love a good warhorse, although I promise that they're beautiful on the inside.

Remember these? They were lying on the ground last time. I'll let you guys figure out which side is which all on your own.

Ope, one more to clear off the old camera roll, and it sort of fits here.

I probably shot my wad by leading with the tanks and pumps to be completely honest, but hey, where do you stand while you're operating those things? The platform, of course.

Oh there's the tank again. Glory hog. Just for that, I'm taking extra of the console, once it's in. Or the pumps. Or even the truck. Or anything that isn't you.

Here are a few details that didn't really fit anywhere else. I don't even remember what I was trying for on the first one. Maybe the welding work.

Sorry, there's pretty much a 0% chance of my being able to translate that last cave drawing for you guys. This was definitely one of those ones I took specifically to set up a joke, then I forgot the joke, and now you're stuck with an X inside a box for no reason. There's probably an above-average chance of it being cut off I guess (note the suspiciously straight line to the right of the X), but that's about all I have for you.

On a more positive note, do you guys remember WFS-448? Of course you do, we talked about it a lot on here, then we finshed it and it was awesome. Well, as luck would have it, it's still hanging around here, and it's still awesome. But more importantly, it's also identical to what our current project will look like when it's finished. So I tried to set up some sort of "father and son" type of photo, and failed miserably because of the lighting differences and the available angles.

This next one's definitely the better of the two.

Thanks for checking out this post, I probably don't say that enough, see you next time!
