    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...

          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.

            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.
