Well I wouldn't say that's an uncommon practice.

That twist really looks quite weird, I would have expected something more gradual. Definitely going to be an interesting ride experience in the backseat.

Here's a good look at the nearly completed coaster, as well as the station exterior:

They seriously parked the trains on the regular parking lot before installing them on the track? What a joke

Why is that a joke? Seems reasonable to me though I don't know a ton about those kinds of specifics of coaster construction.

Imagine a big European or American park for example parking a train like this on their parking lot. How many pictures would be made? (I've not heard from any big EU/US park that trains were parked like this on a regular parking lot)
And personally it gives me a feeling that you do not really care about your coaster. Like can't you even park your trains behind the scenes or on the building site itself?

^^^ Is it just me or is there a lot of dust on the inside of the panel in the bottom two photos?

The third pic looks like the guy was going to get a lapdance from the other guy in the basket.

It's not dust, I don't think, it looks to be finishing marks left by a grinding pad when those parts were fabricated.

It'll be a laser cut plate, folded and formed, then welded together at the seams and dressed off. It's just left unpainted inside, I guess, so the markings on the material are still visible.

RCT3, still doesn't seem that odd to me. Isn't that where they parked the rest of their structure? I see your point, it just doesn't seem like a huge deal. But to each his own...if you think that then surely others would too so it's fair.

Interesting how the middle two seats are higher up than the outside ones, and will there really be only two cars per train?

It's a pull through test for clearances. They usually do those with 1-2 cars, then attach the rest after.

I'm confused about the theming in the queue, it seems pretty random to me...

If I am right it's themed to one of Saturnus' moons: Hyperion

Well there is clearly a space vibe going on.

Themeing is often a mystery to North Americans.
