Another quick update

Howdy world,

Not much happening today really, had a trip down to Jessheim with Tore today as he had a appointment down there with someone I hope will help over time.
Rain most of the day, sun in the late afternoon.

Hence, not a very good mood setting day – but, I was able to crank open gmax a little and whip out what turned out to be a large hoist house for the Iron Blossom Mine I’ve been working on for the last week or so.
Working from a drawing set I got hold of from the Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette I been trying to faithful recreate the structure as the drawing says, but I’ve not fully succeed as set out to do.
But, I’m happy with the way I do it though. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the place in Trainz where I put this it might be a little to large set of structures – and when comparing the head frame and the hoist house to the ore bin – it sure looks like a tiny ore bin…

But, I’m having fun, and while making up the start of the texture set for this structure took me a while – and left me with no time to do the rest, I think I’m on a good track here.
Now, to find time and energy to do the rest.

It’s almost 01:00 here, Saturday is only a night of sleep away – so I’m not sure when I will work on this again.

So, for the time being, this is where I stand now:

First, a look at the basic shape and look of the new hoist house. I have yet to map out textures for the windows and doors, add on a corrugated roof and a foundation – and for my use, a smokestack might also be installed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Second, here is the hoist house as seen from the backside of it, looking down the hill and seeing all 3 models of mine. ๐Ÿ™‚ and, yes, I need to map out a texture for the roof as this is only basic planks.

Third, this view shows all 3 models looking up the hill, the good thing about making this as separate models I’m more free to place them around in the ground and just connect them as needed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope the views can bring some pleasure to look at, they do for me and that is the important part I think. ๐Ÿ˜›

and, with this I sign off for now.
