So heres just about finished. Just the horn is left to make. This variant has the ditch lights on deck(NS), rather than under it(UP,CSX,CR). I will supply an under deck version as well. plus the next variants will not have a break in the front rim of the deck(only NS has it). instead it will be a constant rounded edge. It looks like there are no railing bars but the faces are reversed, Thus become transparent(i since fixed that in sketchup and all is well now so no worries).
All thats left for me here is the horn, the cab exterior view(and interior view eesh) and a few details over the gas tank and trucks still. Once i get this to the point where its ready to be edited for gameplay I will make the other variants. and the B40-8. my total model vert count is 76,845 and face count is 157,883 what is the limit? i will be adjusting it to have child object grouping in 3ds anyway so I wont have any issues anyway. my King st station had 500,000 faces.
I will update next week on progress as it is thanksgiving. happy holidays
