Many thanks Pete, nice update...

...although I think the fan belt is slipping as it's running a little hot..... :P

Detail is superb.

Cheers

That will teach you to use something I made Shessi, you're lucky there is a fan belt, I nearly forgot. :D

Thank you very much for reporting in, really appreciated, glad you like it so far. 8)


Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello guys, I keep getting distracted with other things so took to the 3d again before I get completely lost in other things. ;)


Detailing of what seems to be blocked off openings in the right hand side of the engine:

 


The casting runs from out to the side of what I assume to be the cylinder head and will lead onto further
castings below:




Trying to replicate the blanking plates at each end of the pipe with the nuts holding them in position
as well as the outlet below into the lower castings that I still have to build:




Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello again guys, that particular component is now done and installed.  ;)

Mapped but awaiting updating of the texture:



Trying to replicate the openings without covers:




And into the game:




I had a few light issues with the faces due to some of the radius included in the shape but while not
fully fixed seems okay so I will leave as is because tinkering too much can make a real mess. :D


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hi Pete. :)
I'm just shocked by your amazing work! o_O
I have not seen such a level of detail of the model. ;D
Wish you success in implementing the project.
Take care of yourself.

Hello Alex, great to have you back around the place, seems so long since you posted. 8)

I hope you and all are keeping well during these strange times. ;)

Glad you like my project, it was always meant first and foremost as a 3d build so was always going to incorporate as much detail as I could
manage to add, however, as you see I also brought it into the game as well although it needs the help of some special classes for certain
parts to work. :D


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello again guys, finally back on board with this, I got a little way laid. :D


Continuation of the engine block detail on the drivers side:





It will not be a exact replication of the castings seen in the photograph but hopefully close enough to
at least convey the general shape at least. ;)


Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Yes you did...I was going to have words...lol!

(although Swordfish floats are the thing to have.....)

Good to see you're back in the driving seat Pete.

Cheers

I am very easily led astray, always was even as a kid, we would wander for hours in the woods and stuff near us, drove my mum mad, usually got a crack from her for coming home at silly times of night, nothing has changed I still go where and when I feel the need. :D


(although Swordfish floats are the thing to have.....)

I made a few skins years ago for the aircraft when it released with floats, always annoyed me needing a separate tga to paint the floats so when Herb was having issues and I now had the knowledge to do something it was a no brainer to try and sort it out, I nearly built the proper floats but held myself in check and just went with remapping. ;)


You know these things seem to linger, like something in your head keeps tapping away and reminds you of things you really still need to do, my Lysander was built for the Finnish theater and I just never got around to doing the intended skins and opening up the wheel spats, finally it is done, I can sleep nights now without those voices hounding me, I scratched the itch so to say, all is done and dusted, I can now leave anything else to others. 8)

I was intending to start the Queen Mary while I do the Thorneycroft but thought better of it, the pain in my hands, arms and neck only allows so much activity so it is better if I do not go there, too many projects could lead to nothing getting finished so I am back on track again. :o


Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello again guys, just a quick update. ;)

The trouble with leaving a project for a while is returning to it makes you look again at
what you have so far, this project is no different and so I have replaced the upper parts
of the engine block with something a little better shaped, more rounded and smooth.

The light Brown/Sand coloured parts are the new and replaced items:




These castings are proving to be rather troublesome and have gone through a few changes as I try and
make a shape close to what you see in the earlier photograph, it appears to be two castings if you will,
one part blended into the engine block and then it appears to have a cover, there will be a second behind
but I will clone the first once I have mapped it to make that later on:



Here is what I am trying to do, the engine side part has the bolts fixed into it and a cap is then pushed
over those and bolted tight, I have not cut any holes in the mating faces that can be represented using
paint, hopefully you see what it is I am trying do:




Splitting these parts is not essential but I wanted to give my self the option for later on of maybe
doing the engine as a separate object on a bench with some of the bolted on parts removed as
though it has been stripped down by mechanics, we will see. :D


Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

A little more of this jigsaw is now finished. :o


Mapping complete on all the new build parts:



The front part of the castings pulled back to show the rear portion:



And then from the rear looking out to show the other face:




And finally into game:





Take care and be safe.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hi Pete,
Good to see the power house take shape...hope you haven't got any crossed threads on those nuts....ooooeerrr missus.. :o

You can see the real engine was made so that easy access and maintenance could take place whilst the engine was still in situ, good designing.

I appreciate it's not important or needed, but it almost begs the question that a working crank/pistons etc for a cutaway engne would be good.

Cheers
