Track tractor - day one

First three hours gives me complete tracks and wheels. I will add front and rear tools today since I have them on blueprint in good detail and in next day or two I will fill the gaps ( add main body and cabin ) between them.

Quick tip.
Right now I render a lot in the background and on the same computer I need to make models so here is useful Windows feature. In  Task Manager/Processes You can set how many cores Layout.exe will use while rendering. Press right mouse button and select " SET AFFINITY". Now if You have 4 cores like me, uncheck first one. One core for modeler will be enough and You will not see any slowdowns. Even better if You have HT, then uncheck two cores. This way You will make models while rendering take place in the background.

I wish I had few additional computers for rendering only but right now I must use what I have.

Here what I made so far :
Day Two - update :
