    Announcement: I'd just like to advise that the course 'Rigging Vehicles in Blender' is now released on Udemy and it includes the base bus model on there. I cover many of the rigging elements found on this rig on the course itself. Course can be found here: Udemy: Ace Rigging Vehicles in Blender
