Update10
I know people, it's been a looong time.. But I figured I can't let all this work go to waste before making a good render.. I am therefore picking the project back up. I won't be working on only this, I'll still be doing challenges and stuff, so don't expect me to finish it any time soon. Just showing a little bit of progress here. I'm sorry the wip images from before don't work anymore, I don't have webspace on cg-nation anymore.. I'll upload the pics on imageshack from now on.

Looking good, nice to see you back on this one...

What happened at CG-Nation? Awhile back I looked into re-establishing an account there, but "The Producer" basically talked me out of it. I thought that was weird, but oh well... don't go where not wanted, right?

I don't believe anything's happened much different at CG-Nation.  I see no problem with you getting an account.
As for webspace, $imon you should have space, not the same domain most likely, but each user does have webspace automatically when they sign up.

Maybe CG-Nation is running out of webspace... so they don't want many new users?

I shouldnt've said anything to instigate this.. i was merely saying I had an own ftp account before, and it didnt transfer, so that was where the old images were stored & why theyre not visible anymore.. I know I can upload images with cg-nations managing features, but I don't really like the lay-out of it so I'd rather not use it for this project.

I don't think there is trouble with webspace on cg-nation, and new members are very welcomed probably..

Please keep it on-topic, sorry I have no major update yet..

Here another update.

I know it's slow progress.. but there is a lot of detail I'm putting into this, there is a lot of small detail that doesnt show up in these renders but it will be good for close-up shots later on.

Thanks Kubajzz so much for your mirroring script, it helps a lot with mirroring a lot of details.

The very front triangle will be remodeled.

I'd have to check my books, but it looks like you are modelling a Norfolk Southern Class A.  Consequently, the pilot (the part everyone keeps referring to as the bumper or rammer) was a single cast piece which would explain it's having smooth edges.  A lot of last generation American steam had large single castings like this.  you can easily get lost in the details with something like this.  I am working on a model of a 100 foot motor yacht, and the more I work on it, the more fine detail I add.  right now, I'm trying to decide if I want to go into modelling the interior cabins.  Keep up the good work

Zombie: This render is 100% only for the WIP, everything will change.

Pinco: tnx.

Slider: It is a Norfolk & Western A class 1218. Thanks for pointing out its called a pilot.. wasn't aware of that ;)

I by no means have any kind of knowledge of trains, I just observe images and try to rebuild it from there. The details on the pilot are mostly dents and stuff, so that will be hard to get in as details, I might UVmap it later and add a bumpmap for that.

I am trying to make the details on the outside up to the screws. I will probably want to make (some of) the inside as well, particulary the driver's cabin. I might have to go to a museum in the US where they have it and make some photographs of my own for that though.

That's incredible work, one of those shots where the details makes the image just leap off the screen and grab you.

Very nicely done.
