Well, maybe you watched a few times because it is up to 28 views now!

This was a direct extrusion of the drawing that Phil Knox gave us:

The colors are bit distracting, but they are from the three profiles that I used to get the basic shape. As you can see, fitting people and a drivetrain inside, and making it driveable is not as simple as you might have thought...

Also, you can see the shape seeming to change - but this is from the "camera lens" changing from a straight-on view to a perspective view. The first 3 key frames are those straight-on views, and it is interesting to see how they would appear in 3D.
Sincerely, Neil
