The red rails are now 95% done and I think the model is about 80% complete. I'm really happy with the progress. The model 100% won't be working, but it will be a nice thing to look at. I wish I had left room to build a transfer track and maintenance shed, oh well. But the question is, do I build a train? And heres a list of things that I have to do.

 

Make more L-beam cross ties for the track and finish the supports.

Adjust the Supports on the fan curve.

Finish the station and glue the roof on.

Finish the details on the brakerun.

Make a queue line.

Finish the whole area with the S&S tower and surroundings.

Build a fence around low areas of the coaster.

Add the trees.

Tiny update, but loved the photo so I had to share it, just adding a chain fence around the ride, I will add keep out and danger signs to fence for extra details. I wish I had more time for the model. I have a lot of time at work to play on RCT3, if I was able to have my model at work I would of finished it by now. But enjoy the picture

One step closer to completion. The front side of the model is basically complete. Just have some shrubs and fences to add. And glue down the tower ride with queue line etc. Iv added the trees to the front side and its looking so good in my eyes. The back side has some track and support work to be completed and stairs to and from the station. Enjoy the photos.

Hi there, I used Streugras (sprinkle grass) by NOCH and the gravel is also made by NOCH but its normally for railways. It's really easy to get hold of from amazon or eBay and its also kind of cheap. The cobble stone is just a print out on paper. Im always checking out the progress of the airplane, It for ever amazes me and gives me the inspiration to continue with my project.

Hello, So I managed to get some work done the last couple of days. I'v yet to complete the track as I keep putting it off and I find other things to do. I will finish the track soon! So I worked a bit on the S&S tower, I still have some deco's and lights to add to the poles around the base. And I started working on the coaster queue line I haven't stuck anything down yet as I have work to do on the station with rails and stairs. And more work with the mesh fence to add, but heres what it will all kind of look like together.

This is AMAZING! It's like you're building a park in a RCT game but you're MAKING the pieces. Love the fencing, the station, S&S tower...

 

Making models of RCT structures and then building it on a board as large as a pool table? I wonder if anyone would take that on.

Thanks still got quite a lot of work to do but I'm finally seeing the end. A pool table sized RCT model sounds like a good project would have to be done on a grid and have puke on the paths Il leave it to someone else to do because this model is taken me a year+ and its only 55cm x 100cm.

 

Are you going to be building a train for your airplane model to have abandoned in the station or something? I'm in 2 minds about building one for mine to place on the track somewhere.

I started building the trains today, and already I have 10 identical chassis almost all built!

It's a shame that you ran into so much difficulty making it a functioning model, but this really does look spectacular. Great level of detail, and I like that you incorporated the S&S tower as well - helps create a vibrant environment.

 

Can't wait to see the finishing touches!

Starred with a bit of train construction today. Iv looked at pictures mainly of twisted colossus for the trains. The main base of them is done. Now just trying to figure out how to do the seats? Any ideas anyone? I also added one last peice of mesh fence to the bottom of the lift hill and basically finished the support work just a few adjustments here and there

More work on the trains. So happy with it so far, it actually looks like the trains built for the RMC coasters, well in my eyes anyway. Still not quite sure how to do the seat interior's but I guess ill figure it out, if only i had a 3D printer Well heres the pictures enjoy.

IMG_5605.thumb.jpg.7498aab9dbddd6a05e6dfa54216218d7.jpg

The seat side panels. cutting these out was a pain in the A** ha

IMG_5606.thumb.jpg.4653ca7493fd730b3b843b519ca0fa28.jpg

And assembled with the backs of the seats

IMG_5607.thumb.jpg.e888f667d56018f1f40e16a946728b7d.jpg

Even tho the model won't be working, the wheels still spins freely with the seat panels around it.

IMG_5608.thumb.jpg.8ed1c8f2aa1dec2bd79cdc2006ed43f3.jpg

Testing it on the chassis.

IMG_5609.thumb.jpg.a8a59eb89c5095503ce0915683054789.jpg

All six seat exteriors made.

IMG_5610.thumb.jpg.a953c0cdef023e6bd3ae04c38e6169cf.jpg

I added an back brace beam across the bottom with some holes in for detail as seen on pictures of the trains on google.

IMG_5612.thumb.jpg.3e54ed9affd5001efb3fa195f0c81839.jpg

looking good

IMG_5613.thumb.jpg.09491c19e86f67368dfad1cbd855fd63.jpg

I painted them all red to match the chassis and added the side deco which is from Goliath at Great America.

IMG_5618.thumb.jpg.965d61168808322d8df11dc478831e74.jpg

still haven't glued the top pieces to the chassis so some appear wonky.

IMG_5619.thumb.jpg.dab20c4566d0fa510b57a9db16e62abf.jpg

Here the first three attempts of making the train chassis from a year ago.

And heres the Front of the train. IronSide. :)

Excellent! Is this your first attempt at making a train? If it is, enjoy the creative process of making them instead of using a 3d printer. This looks very good!

 

This is my first train yeah, I don't even have a 3D printer so thats not an option. But i'v got a few ideas how to do the seat interiors. Iv enjoyed making it even tho a few bits were a bit of a pain cutting out Thanks to your model for all the inspiration that keeps me going through my project when I feel i'm at a dead end.

 

I Worked on the track today with adding cross ties hopefully you can see that from the photos. And even though the train is still unfinished I couldn't resist putting it on the track for a couple photos.
