Good evening all

Those who like to create modern era in trainz may find this current piece of content I'm working on interesting. As the title says I'm currently working on one of the new Hitachi express passenger trains. So far I've created the bogies and body and put a basic GWR green skin on. I will be attempting to create opening doors.

It's still work in progress but I will be hoping to complete it soon to go on my prototypical Riviera line route. I will most likely release it too.

I'm trying to keep the poly level to as low as possible. Here is some screenshots of the skined mesh

It's not perfect but I am happy I have made good enough replica. Finding technical information to use to create the mesh has proved difficult . I've used information from simular Hitachi units to help me.

Hope you all like it !

Regards jack

It's light years better than anything I could produce, Jack, so well done and give yourself a bit of self praise for your achievement. Content Creators are always welcome in Trainz, and those making British stuff are doubly welcome in my book :lol:

I'm an old BR blue and grey man myself but I'm sure you'll find plenty of grateful takers when you release it. ;)

Cheers

Dave

Thank you Dave. I've been wanted to create locomotives and rolling stock for some time now. I'm normally creating signs buildings and platforms, but recently I've been wanting to do something a bit more advanced. Of course making a locomotive is quite a step up.

I choose the Hitachi 800 for two main reasons. One being that it hasn't yet been done for trainz. There's quite a lot of things now that have been created for trainz, and finding something new is a little difficult when there's so much already out there.

One thing I've also notice is missing from trainz is a class 68. This has also set up another project. Although the 68 is a little difficult as there is not an awful lot of information available online to help create a good looking locomotive mesh. I'm enjoying the challenge though, despite the nightmare of getting things right. But the saying goes good things come to those who are patient. I will continue to persiver with the challenge. All the 3D CAD work is useful practice for me as an engineer apprentice. I'm learning new a better ways of doing things every day!

I will post more progress on this thread as I create progress. Feel free to give criticism and improvements everyone.
