So here is the trukk that inspired me to start the trukk shop. The trukk is over half complete but I want to finish the shop before I get the trukk itself done. Because of this, I am not posting a WIP of the trukk yet.
I started with a plan to make this shop using several nearby buildings as the base of it. While this idea still strikes my fancy it would have been a huge pain. I would either have to glue 4 buildings together to make a huge complex or I would have to cut the base so each building could be positioned at the edges of the trukk shop. After doing the mock up I realized how annoying this would be, especially since I would have to pull out every building whenever I wanted to use Yaddat's Trukk Shop.
Instead I came up with this, a 3 story ruin with a building across the road that would work for Yaddat Addawerk's hut. I confiscated a section of road where the Trukk Shop will be built between these 2 buildings. After figuring all the measurements out I currently have the ability to have 2 trukks in here at the same time, but that took this build to 13 inches long and 15 inches wide. I could have shortened it up quite a bit either direction, but my vision demands space.
The ruins complete 1 wall, so there are 3 to finish. Yaddat Addawerk likes to make a big hoopla about his newest vehicles, so the Shop must be enclosed so nobody can see what he will build next. The framework is easy enough, a mixture of plastic I-beams and wooden dowels will raise this building quickly, then I will apply a mixture of sheeting material to close it in, followed by assembling a cap for the roof. The roof itself will be about half flat, allowing a lookout tower to be added to it.
Almost all the beams are up, I am adding a couple of small ones from the ruined building towards the other supports. The garage doors will be 7 inches tall and double sliding doors. The can up front is where I have decided to place my fuel tank, but I think I will stand it vertically.
That's all for today.
