The GP35 Project 2004 through 2005
Here are some shots of how the GP35 took shape in gmax which being constructed in 2004. There have been several updates to this model since the original and a brand new more accurate model
has been built and is awaiting the final stages of construction. Check our forums for the current images of this project.
In the images below you can see how drawings on transparent planes are used to create the 3D shapes.
Here is a shot to show you one of the main PSD layered files I created so that everyone could repaint it with ease. Perhaps I should say ease is a relative term if you have photoshop knowledge. This file in particular has 61 layers and it is at 1024x1024.
GE B40-8 and U25B Started in 2005
Here are a couple of locomotives I started in January 2005 but never got around to finishing. First one is a U25B and the second is a B40-8(8-40B). Since these pictures the B40-8 has been updated and the U25B has been completely rebuilt. As time permits we will be displaying pictures of these models as we continue work on them.
