WIP: Modern Freight Cars, Vol 2

Unread postby GreatNortherner » Mon Apr 02, 2012 2:45 pm

Hi,

The Modern Freight Cars pack, vol. 2, is beginning to take shape. I know, it's taking me quite a while to build these cars, but here at least is a preview of one of the cars that will be in the pack: a 50' airslide hopper. More to come soon!

Cheers,
Michael

Hehe, yeah, this pack won't become vaporware like so many of my other models. *!embar*!

about 60 more minutes of work in 3DC, only the roof details and some bits and pieces are still missing:

Can't wait to try these out. You make some of the best freeware train cars for the sim.

Looks great.

Later would you consider writing a pdf tutorial on how to build a train car in 3DS, since I would like to learn to build a train car as well before I try to learn how to build a locomotive.

As usual, your work is top quality! However, I want to echo one of the previous posts. When you make the ribs a separate shape, it is very difficult to paint anything that crosses ribs, such as one of your newer boxcars. Do you have suggestions for working with these models?
