American Steam Locomotive Engine Low-poly 3D model
Historical American 4-4-0 steam locomotive from 1865, complete with accurate components, valve gear, pipes and cab controls. Built and UV Mapped in 3DS Max 2013, rendered in Mental Ray.
This isn't a model of any specific locomotive, but it accurately reflects American steam locomotive construction from the period. Model includes accurate frames, injector pipes and driving gear mechanism, with each component separated and named. This is one of the few models available that includes accurate cab controls (for the engineer and fireman).
Scale model has been UV Mapped and the textures - diffuse, specular and bump - have all been included in jpeg format in the RAR file. The textures give the locomotive a weathered, industrial look - somewhat rusty on top and dirty underneath. This was done on purpose to make the old engine look more realistic.
How To Add The Textures Open the .max model in 3DS Max. Select the locomotive. Go the Slate Material Editor... add the diffuse, specular and bump maps. Do the same for the Tender. A few less important objects (like the chains and tracks) have a simple material applied to them - these are not texture mapped. The loco and tender have their own separate texture files.
Note: Make sure you have a fast enough machine that can handle 4048x4048 textures, or you may have to reduce the texture size. A set of secondary textures located in the texture folder have been converted to a lower bitmap quality and take up less space. This model does not support sub-division.
