G'day TheModder™,

...dare I say, Sir, it is very much "looking the part"...

G'day Jerker,

Thank you for the kind words - much appreciated.

Regards.

G'day all,

Over a month of an absence of discussion and an update, but I relieve doubt from those who assume modelling has been paused. As previously noted, prior to procuring 3DsMax, I explored the alluring and enticing world of 3D modelling in the program - Gmax. I acquired the A class mesh - so generously provided by Pete - and after several attempts of applying new textures, my effort had paid off. It was only recently that I had decided to modify the A class mesh into a B class with the exhaustive but undoubtedly rewarding process of converting the Gmax file to a 3DsMax file, having the ambition for shadow baking.

The mesh is still in development, nevertheless the current modifications include side frames, new headlamps and headlamp doors, markerlamps, air horns, and fan and coupler components.

Regards.

G'day all,

Unable to procure the missing USB flash drive containing all B class related files, the project has seen very little attention which is very disappointing...

On the other hand, for anyone interested, I have another model in the works - an N class locomotive. The mesh is still in development and I am keeping close watch on the poly count - just above 5000 which is quite exceptional.

Regards.

G'day TheModder™,

The N Class is coming along nicely, Sire and it is a shame that you can't find the USB stick to continue work on the B Class (they can, sometimes, be too easy to lose) one of a number of reasons I would never use one as the primary storage location for such important files...

...by the way, I wouldn't call myself "awesome", either, I just have very good corrective glasses...

G'day Jerker,

Thank you for the gracious words, Garry. I now store all important files on my portable hard drive as it is much more difficult to misplace as opposed to a USB flash drive - lesson learnt there.

...as for the signature, it was a temporary phrase and I suppose it stuck...

Regards.

G'day all,

Subsequent to extensive and exhaustive modifications to the N class locomotive mesh - as previously exhibited - I am very pleased with the current progress.

Regards.

G'day all,

Following a temporary pause from modelling, I have returned with some more progress - that is ... if anyone is still interested ...

Regards.

How's the B Class coming along?
I would love to see an up-to-date B as this is one of my favourites (particularly in the VR livery).
