    Hi Yaniv
    For the render. I created 2 rectangular lights. Place them in differrent angle. And render in 10X antialiasing mode.

    Wow! Just . . . wow! :shock:

    I'm going to have to buy and build this for an old engineer I know. He never drove a big Boy, but he is fond of the design and he actually did drive a few steam engines in his day. :)

    Hi Millennium
    Oh really!! Build this to bring his days return. He must be happy to see the great steam engine in 1.3m of paper model.

    Kooklik, your card modelling is outstanding, but I've got to tell you, as someone who who works in Rhino on a regular basis, your digital modelling is absolutely incredible as well!

    Thank you Colton
    The model looks so complecated. But it is drawn by simple commands in Rhino.
    Best Regards

    Thank you SteveK. It has been more than a week I have not updated the thread. Anyway I'm working on Bigboy 3D drawing. Tender truck brake linking is very very complecated to understand how it works. With helping of supported photos from Willygoat I finished this section and all Tender's chassis.

    Hi there
    There's some design mistake about the ladders. I corrected as the picture. On the top there are 3 water filling holes with covers.

    Thanks for your words. I'll release this as commercial but it's still so far. Hope you can wait.

    Kooklik, I'm always amazed when I check in on this thread.

    I'm wondering how long it took you to learn Rhino? I'm debating buying the program after I've seen what you've been able to do with it and found it at a discount if I sign up for a class. I probably won't ever get to this skill level, but I'd still like to design some things...

    I'm looking forward to placing my order!

    Hi Jim
    Thank you for your kind words. I started paper model design with Rhino. I always use simple commands ,Line Circle Trim Fillet ect those are very basic commands in other CAD program.
    Best Regards

    Kooklik, may I ask how do you use Rhino to render an image like the one you just posted...?

    Hi Lex
    It's simple.
    1. Select view port which you want to printout.
    2. Set it to "Shaded" (see picture 1)

    3. Printout to "Image File" (see picture 2).

    Enjoy printing. :D
