Thanks. I would just install the metapackage by downloading and extracting the ZIP from GitHub, right?

There are also some simple parameterized vehicle models in the gazebo_models repository. They were added in this pull request.

Thanks, I was able to make 3 models based upon the ones provided by default. I just have an issue that needs to be addressed here.
