I’m really keen on everything that moves on tracks. This is why I’ve decided to take a model of a steam engine for my first WIP thread.
The locomotive itself was build by Warsaw boiler manufacturer in 1927 for Żnin narrow-gauge (600mm) railway. There is not much known about the further history of this engine except that it was scrapped in the late 70’s. Nothing was left except a few photos.
Lately, I found and bought a paper model of this engine. I intended to glue it at once, but there were many inaccuracies. This encouraged me to made its digital version first. It will be also a good occasion to practice texture painting and mechanical parts rigging (valve gear will be quite a fun :D).
Okay, quit with this jabbering. Let’s get to the point.
That’s what I’ve managed to complete through the last 2 days: The main part of the chassis with wheels, bearings and cylinders (those still need some refining):
I’m looking forward to your questions and comments.
