I have no idea why people are intimated by an MRI. I had a ruptured disc and had gotten an MRI. No problem. Unusual subject. Keep us posted.
That's because you are a Super Man! And, quite possibly, don't understand that other people can feel differently than you... Let me enlighten you, My Friend.
Some people have this nasty little disorder called Claustrophobia (myself included) and the tight interior of an MRI or CT machine can be a frightening, very unnerving place. If I can't turn around in the area, or have the room to move my hand or arm over my head, or if the surface of the enclosure is inches from my face, it's too tight and SEVERE anxiety and low-mid level panic kick in, most times, uncontrolably. It's a basic Fight or Flight reaction. If the person in question is overweight like I am, the situation is even worse. At 260lbs, They almost have to shoehorn me into it. My shoulders are so wide, (56") I have to go in with one arm over my head, I don't fit otherwise. FYI, I've had three MRI's and 5 CT scans in the last three years... they do get easier and I can overcome my fears fairly easily but... they are still anxiety raising experiences.
Onto the model... Sorry for drifting off target... Douglas, I've considered building one of these myself, I'm glad to see you stepping up and taking the reigns. I like what's been done, so far. I'll be watching this one, closely! This will also be a good tutorial on how to build your basic dropdeck van...

I didn't realize they even had mobile MRI units!

The curved cupboards were a real pain, but the rooms are both finally stating to look like what they're supposed to represent.

It's starting to actually look like a trailer.
Te generator unit on the front may not look very impressive, but it sure took a lot of work to get it right,
