Fir tree




Tomorrow the Christmas tree comes down, and while looking at it I was wondering how I can better the FF fir tree in RWs.
I was never that happy with it but it is hard to get the shape/body and depth in the tree without the polys mounting up. I can certainly make a nice looing 2D version but some 3D versions for close to the track would be cool. Here I have just being playing around with some textures and these are not the final ones, but I think I might be able to make something out of it for fir trees up past Witton le wear.

King James Middle school dining hall






My school was just down from the tracks and like the rest of the town will all be modelled.
Lower polygon models but they still look great from a short distance away.

Dec Update

Well I'm back!

Woodhead is by no means out the woods just yet but it is looking pretty special for most of it, in the new year the guys involved will give it a blitz.

SO where does that leave my route, will it ever get done!

The good news is I have found someone willing to aid me in the track laying. This is a major step forward.
I will not put a date against this route but I think 2012 will be pretty special.

More updates to follow over the festive period (as long as the missus allows me some time at the pc!)

cheers

Derek
