Superb! Following your designs is truly inspiring!
I was snooping around here (1st time in quite a while) and saw your build thread. I said it on the other forum, but I have to say it again. WOW!!!!!!!
Lordy! Can't wait to see this in paper! Magnificent work!
Very thanks for all kind words. I first unrolled the frame. Have to divided to be 2 sections. Tender's lenght in 1/30 is 420mm. It's too long to fit in A4 lenght.

Can I ask a question(actually two questions, this being the first. ):
How does one texture in Rhino? All I can see in your pics is a gray locomotive with line art on the surfaces.
I cut first part. 190 grms is rather too thin for making a frame. But the frame is not completed yet. Still more parts will be added to make it stronger. The sample was printed in white and sprayed in gloss black.
Only one part cut, and it's already looking very impressive !!!
If you mean making texture on the surface such as rusty , oildirty. I'll do it after unroll in Rhino. Then export to photoshop in many layers (contour , pattern line , marking , numbering ect) then adding colors and weathering. For Bigboy it would be gloss black for most skin and parts. Some part will be light weathering added on Super Heat section (the front of boiler) and stove.
Just to add to Kooklik, Rhino has a -rubbish- support on UV textures so I wouldn't recommend even try using them in Rhino... As Kooklik pointed out Photoshop does a much better job anyway
I am about to commence a quick poll, on the Big boy loco, as to which scale you would like it to be produced in.
this is one of a few polls to be started on other sites to gauge (pun) interest.
This poll may not reflect Kookliks final decision, but will give him an idea.
The Poll is located at http://forum.zealot.com/t160736/
It is set to run for 7 days get in quick.
Thanks alot for making a poll survey. During the waitig the poll result. I still continue doing on internal former designing. The frame which I did is rather weak. This is my improved internal former. Basic concept is copied from U-Boat's but added narrow bars beside. These bars maintain the skin plates be wrinkleless.
I thought it may help make me some money!:mrgreen:
But so far no-one has offered a bribe,:twisted: so I think you should make it in 1/200 scalesign1
I have a couple of polls running on the model train sites as well

These pictures are very good resourece for me. There's still some details those I have not put in the 3D model yet.
Now I'm cutting the internal frame. Sorry for no have any picture posted.
The poll is closed. 1/25 is the winner. I'll unroll in 1/25.
Thanks for all votes.
