    Default Superchief

    My Homebrew Superchief



    Before anyone asks, I did not Pirate this. I Made it. With some 3D Trains Components.

    I just love how the smoke curves around the curve.

    What adjustments did you make? The set looks like the original to me.

    I did not mod the orginal, I made the ABBA set and got the cars as bonuses for buying the E8Am set.

    Differences.

    1. They use the newer trucks.

    2. The Trucks are kinda incorrect.

    3. Marc's Units are in the 300 number series, my units are in the 30 series.

    4. The logo on the B-units are different.

    When you said that you "made the ABBA set", did you mean repainting it from another set or actually building the models? I think that it looks very realistic!

    Well, I repainted them. Took the 3DTrains BN F7A and Santa Fe Freight F7B, painted them up and added a custom steam gen vent to the B-unit.

    So, a bit of both.

    I wonder why you repainted two other models by 3DTrains when there is a Super Chief set available complete with ATSF F7 A & B units. Still, I have to say that your F7's look very nice.

    EDIT- According to one of your earlier posts, you used the other F7's to correct some errors. That's really going into detail!

    Ok, yes I did.

    Thanks for the comment.

    As to why, I could not buy the Super Chief set at the time.

    The 3DTrains Super Chief set is a great-quality add-on, no doubt, but yours is an excellent substitute considering the fact that you couldn't buy the Super Chief set. By the way, what route is this screenshot on? I'm guessing the Rattlesnake Desert.

    Yes, it's on Rattle Snake Desert.
