Hey guys, been a long time lurker on the site, but just actually joined... Dunno if this is the right place to ask, but I have an ask of the amazing photographers here, does anyone have or know of some good hi-res images of the inner hydraulics of a Goldhofer AST-3 pushback tractor? I'm a 3d artist and am working on a side project that I'm a bit stuck on now. I got pretty good ref of the outside of the tractor but nice views of the interior of this specific one seem to be tricky to get to. I don't know a ton about pushback tractors but there seem to be tons of different types. I've always liked watching the airport vehicles doing their job. They are so weirdly cool looking, being made for very specific jobs. Here's a view of what i'm going for, but better https://www.flickr.com/photos/a380spotter/4575124296 and some attached images to prove I'm working on it ;) Image Image

Hey there, the project is just for pleasure modeling a pushback tug. I work in the 3D industry and enjoy modeling in 3D as well in my spare time. Right now I'm trying to place hydraulics and valves and things the best I can, but the pneumatic/electrical lines that are showing, and there are a lot, are a bit of a maze.
