Concept schematics on the wall of the Semi

Post by KFCreator » Wed Dec 27, 2017 1:40 pm

I was curious if anyone here knows where to find the concept schematic drawings we see on the walls on the Semi. I know some replica owners that have taken it upon themselves to recreate the interior f the semi have managed to track them down and have reproductions made and I'd love to see what those schematics look like close up. They also would make fantastic computer or tablet wallpaper images. Anyone have any suggestions?

I recreated them for MSKen's semi interior for thr fan game years ago. I had to watch every single episode and pause to get the best shots I could. They aren't of the circuitry schematics but the black and white ones.

I'll try to upload them when I get home tonight.

Thanks Knight Racer, sounds like you put a ton of work into them, I'm excited to see what they look like!

Speaking of KR:TFG, how's progress? It's been quiet on that front lately.

It must have taken about 20-30 screen captures to get every line just right. I've seen my recreations used in garage mockups of the semi and in conventions. No credit given but would be nice.

Thank you very much. This project took a few weeks to collect all the pictures of each schematic and to create it in either microsoft paint, but I'm seeing some PDFs in the folder so I'm guessing Adobe Illustrator. Haven't used that program in what feels like a decade.

I've also pieces together the red car image from 2 shots in kitty vs Karr when John breaks into the semi. I'll try to rememberto upload that too. I have about a dozen shots of the circuitry schematics. I did notice the semi set got larger over the years. In the middle of watching season one on blu ray.
