Still grinding out the UV mapping and occlusion bakes, but version Alpha 2 of the locomotive was submitted today for painting. The wheels are fixed so that they roll correctly now, the Dynamic Brake intakes now have screens on both sides, the truck dampers and Timken bearings have been fixed, and a few more furnishings have been placed in the cab. I have even seen Mike’s early work on the Reading unit, the star of the show.
Up next is finishing work on the cab controls, knobs, and switches, then more finishing work on the exterior. May looks to be an interesting month, as the unit will go to Scripting, and we’ll start trying to put a sound package together.
