Vectors done from images (photos) or scans? 

Understand the complexity of scans for Zacc pieces, but still want to clarify.

The source images were photos. I had to combine 8 different photos and then warp, scale, and distort them into place so they looked like they were flat, then actually make them flat in vector. Took me the better part of a day to just get them looking ok in photoshop before i started to vector. The marquee on some of the Zac cabs as most of you know is a U shape or circular/tubular, then when removed from the cab relaxes further into an oval. It's essentially like taking a flat marquee and melting it onto a ball. Makes flattening it out in any photo editing program a nightmare.
