Shedding a bit more light on base cab progress!

Quite a few things are still missing but more or less starting to take the shape of a 40 cab.

As for tomorrow, more of the same!

Thanks

After a solid week of work, The drivers side of the cab in more or less finished bar wires and gauge details

Every switch/control/button will be operable, with the aim of being a true Simulation and not just a piece of eye candy.
Progress is very much commencing and i should have a load more shots to post in here soon.

Thanks!
