Showing the colonist scale really helps bring it to life. The wing mirrors seem ridiculous in an awesome way, I can just imagine the truck trying to parallel park on some strange planet.
Knowing how shit my path finding is... that might happen a bit. :p

But beside that pesky detail, it does look awesome : )
:D

That's a very good question...

Yes! I like it. Needs more axles or evidence of suspension/bulk underneath, but otherwise a nice mix of the 1970s and the 2270s.

I really like the headlights, they look great. They have a retro feel which captures my imagination for some reason, I look forward to seeing more.

Looks good and fits the art style. Only the suspension needs work, and the tires have to hang lower to be off road capable.


Will the cockpit be visible from the outside?

For some reason, I absolutely love that little catwalk on the side. The way you structured it is just perfect. Although, it might be better to move the door over so that it's by the catwalk, instead of over the ladder; just my two cents. It seems like it's more challenging to get from the door to the catwalk than it should be.

Also, maybe the wheels should be moved a tad bit farther apart? Maybe I'm nitpicking, but the way it is right now makes me fear it's a bit too top-heavy. Again, it could just be me.
I'm good at whatever I apply myself to, I'm just not good at applying myself.
