    Skins for 3DTrains F-Units?

    Since 3DTrains has apparently expired, I was just wondering if there were ever any warbonnet skins (red, yellow, or blue) available for the 3DTrains freeware F-Units. Nothing in the File Library for these units, and Google-fu turned up nothing.

    Thanks.

    Probably not -- there was a payware set with all three combinations.
    If you like what you see here at Trainsim.com, be it the discussions and knowledge in the forums, items saved in our library or the ongoing development of our TSRE Fork, I hope you'll consider a paid membership to help support keeping the site operating.... Thanks!

      Au contraire. Bill Hemb created the ATSF experimental Yellow/Blue using a 3dTrains Funit.

      Search the Early Car Body section for "Hemb" and you will get 8 pages of hits all worth downloading.

      Be aware that Bill may have used versions of 3dTrains Funits that may not be available now. Since I was a beta tester for Marc, I had access of all of his shape files as my payment for testing was a free copy of the products I tested.

      EDIT:
      Looking back thru my downloads of Hemb's repaints I only find the Yellow/Blue. The Red/Silver repaint he did was of Dick Cowen's Funit. No Red/Silver Yellow/Silver or Blue/Silver as Marc would not allow repaints that duplicated ones he had for sale.

      FYI Gaetan Belanger has Yellow/Silver and Blue/Silver Warbonnets available for purchase.

        Also Frank Burns made some Red/Silver repaints using version 4.0 of the 3dTrains shapes. (I believe that ver 4 shapes were never released for free download, so only 3dTrains customers could use those repaints.)

          Looks like you've au contraire'd your own au contraire.

          There's really not an option for the freeware 3DT F Units other than the Hemb Yellow and blue Freightbonnets. Certainly no silver Warbonnets in Red, Yellow or Blue... on the 3DT model. But all five are available from BLW at a reasonable price.

          Granted, I'm a big fan of BLW's work and encourage people to support them. http://www.valleypass.com/Sales/Sales.htm


          All five versions of the F units are available in the ATSF Equipment pack ---> http://www.valleypass.com/Sales/ATSF.htm

          You can also get the red and silver versions with either of the two passenger sets available -- High-Level (http://www.valleypass.com/Sales/ATSF3.htm) and 1953 Super Chief (http://www.valleypass.com/Sales/ATSF4.htm)
