Overseas NJ Transit Arrow-3 model production (Part I)

NJ Transit Arrow III

Arrow III type train.Running overseas, America, and New Jerseynew jersey transitThis is the train I saw in Newark when I was in NJ.This time I will introduce the model making (Part I).tomhayerIf you are watching this, this is a slightly old story (lol)

模型を作るにはそれなりの調査が必要なのですが、海外車両の場合、容易に実物を見に行けません。 なので、ネットにある画像や動画が頼りです。 しかし、希望の細部画像を見つけるのが想像以上に困難で、画像探しに数時間は当たり前。特に屋根上や床下周りは不明な箇所が多く、形状・位置・大きさの判断が大変難しいです。そんなわけで、一部なんちゃって仕様となっております (;^_^A

What is more difficult than the lack of materials is that I am a beginner in 3D modeling.First of all, it is important to know if you can make it with your own level of knowledge (lol). First, imagine how to assemble it using a simple three-dimensional object.The start was like this.

3d modeling test

Once I think it looks pretty good, I adjust the dimensions and add details.

Further tuning.

Output it once to check how much detail is reflected and whether the dimensions are correct.

The atmosphere doesn't seem bad.The vehicle height was lower than I expected, so I made repeated adjustments to the details, such as lengthening it a little, making the windows smaller, and replacing the steps with the underfloor parts.The carving and thickness of the corrugated metal have also been readjusted.

I tried outputting it again.

I can't see the details very well with the skin color (lol) I'll check the image by adding silver and some decals.

It was generally good.I compared it with the Atlas multi-level passenger car that was released the other day.

I'm relieved that the height and dimensions of the vehicle are fine.
What else you need:

  • electrical parts on the roof
  • Horn
  • window glass
  • Under the floor of a dummy car
  • Underfloor parts for power vehicles

There are still quite a few left~ (lol) I'd like to complete one set by the end of the year, but I'm not sure (lol)
