    Default Reading T1 update

    Here is an update on the Reading T1 northern.. Due to a project overload, I have handed this project off to Brandon Smith who has agreed to take over this project for me. Here are some progress shots he has sent me of the model.

    Here is another update of the Model! As this is still in the beginning stages it still has a long ways to go before it will be done!! I am also working on MILW 261 and SOO LINE 1003 witch are farther along then 2101 but still wont be out for awhile! 2101 will also have a custom Sound set that I will be making to go along with the Model!

    Hey brandon. kinda sorry to be a downer on this, but wouldn't it be a good idea to start out with the model in Reading Company livery? And then it would be a good idea to do repaints after that, like the Chessie Steam Special, D&H 302, American Freedom Train, Rambler, etc.

    I can answer that. No it wouldn't because its always easier to remove parts from a model than to add them on later.. 2101 in its Chessie Steam Special and American Freedom Train #1 scheme had additional parts on them that where not standard equipment on T1's.. Hope that answers your question.

    well wait, then can't you just make the parts that you want on the CSS T-1 a freight animation, and the same with the other T1 liveries? it would make things a lot easier, and even save polygon space on the locomotive. just have a base model, and add the unique jewelry that is unique to each of the T1s in their service, such as lamp shades, numberboards, etc. that could work that way. and that way, you don't have to make multiple models, and have a limited choice in liveries to just Chessie
