Hello, first time posting in modeling which I guess is appropiate for my showing of my first model
I recently started Computer Animation at university level. Before this I had never created a 3D model (apart from a few boxes :P). I had only ever used a 3D modeling packages in passing and the experience I had was minimal. Starting Uni, I had to create a high-level model in a few weeks after being taught how to use 3DsMax (30+ hours of training in the end I think). I decided to create the 4023 ‘Big Boy’ Union Pacific steam train. I am posting this here for a bit of c&c (though if this is the wrong section please tell me). Most people seem to like it but I havn’t got feedback from my tutors yet so I’d like to see what you people think
In the end it took around a weeks worth of hours to make this (spread over 2 months or so). 167,000 polys and about 200 parts or so.
tl;dr: First ever 3D model. I like it do you?
The train looked best at a distance…
I’m big into small detail (pun not intended :P)
Piston detail (about 50 parts and quite accurate)
Cabin detail. I had started to loose drive at this point and the back of the train looks shit compared to the front.

Thanks for reading! Please give c&c.
