Arrow June Challenge :: Emo :: NewBee

Hey all!

Finally I decided to pull myself together and try to make something this month.

I thought of this a lot and when I read the topic, I was thinking big (BIG) so what's bigger and more special then the

CAT 797B Mining Truck!

http://www.butler-machinery.com/jpegs/news60.jpg

Some Specs:

Quote:
CatŪ 3524B Electronic Unit Injection Engine

Gross power at 1750 rpm 2648 kW 3550 hp
Flywheel power at 1750 rpm 2513 kw 3370 hp
Body capacity (SAE 2:1) Customized Customized
Gross machine operating weight 623 690 kg 1,375,000 lb
Payload weight
Standard Configuration 345+ metric tons 380+ tons
So anyway, I havent't been able to put all my free time into this but this is my WIP so far. I plan to just do this side, then mirror it. Any C+C are sure welcome because I know this is far from what it needs to be.
