    LOL - thanks - I'm determined to stay motivated with modeling long enough to get this one out - as she's stagnated on my drive for years.... I've painted two out of the three in the past few weeks - one more to go... I'm hoping another week or so to finish #11... Thanks for the comments - they help...


    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Folks,

    Well - blew the dust off this project - figured I'd update this post since it's where it started and for those that don't frequent Elvas...

    Completed all the animations.

    Created a preliminary OR/MSTS physics file using Bill Hobbs spreadsheet for guidance.

    Texturing is well underway.

    Been working on getting ALL my open projects out the door and into the file library...

    What model is this being modeled after.

    I was inclined to say that it's a Reading Company I-10sa, but no, that is a Lehigh and Hudson River 90 series Consolidation.

    Default Big Dog - Birth of a Steam Locomotive

    Hi Rick/Dave,

    Yeah - Dave called it - it's specifically the LHR version - but - the actual plans used were for the Reading model... I visually adjusted the shape via photographs for a closer match to the LHR version.... Stuff like the Reading version in my plans didn't have a feed water heater, the compressors were located in different locations, , and it had a much shorter 4 axle tender... I used the tender plans from that WM Consolidation that they still have running today - as it seemed like a close match... I believe the two locomotives were very similar and with minor changes the model could represent either railroad...

    Next up a J1 Light Mikado - that would work on the Monon - right ? I've been wanting to make something worthy of your fantastic route for years...

    The textures look great Scott. I have a few question about the physics from my testing that I will email you later.

    Hi Jim,

    Sure - just pass them along and don't pull any punches...


    I do very little testing in MSTS so appreciate any input...

    Hi Scott,

    I too would like to echo Jim's praise that the textures shown in the latest renderings of the Consolidation model look great!

    Sincerely,
    Walter

    Hi...

    Thanks for the feedback - wish I had the energy to complete the tutorial - but - I don't... I know of a few people who started modeling because of it and that's pretty satisfying...

    I think i still have the MONON K4 and J4 drawings if you need them.
