It may not be big, but it is one of the most important pieces.
Without the water there wouldn't be steam.

What do you plan to do for a heat source, or is that just going to fit in the lower part of the vertical housing?
If you see a zukazamme it's probably me.

The thing about finding the truth is you first have to find who's hiding it.

Flow looks good, and it is important.

Logic, mathematics, and science let you see through the grime.

Hope you're UV mapping as you go... Texturing that thing is going to be a nightmare! :shock:

Actually Robert that is the gas tanks and not for water. This type of model boiler has a gas burner located in the base of the main boiler body. I did consider adding a condenser tank but I starting to run out of places to bolt things onto the poor little fellows shell.

Nope... That' the best bit Jack. I always look forward to the UV and texturing. ;)

Sure would ;)


Well it's been a little while since the last update but I've not been slacking off.

I've been busy plumbing everything together. (I've nearly run out of digital solder :lol: )

So I think I'm about done with the modelling side of things. (must be a new record for me :shock: )

Please speak up if you have any crits or suggestions, or I'll move on to the texturing with peace of mind ;).

Feedback please guys (Don't be shy :roll: )

Very good but:
The cylinders (actuators) can not rotate the wheel when the axis is aligned with the center. should be a counterweight on the wheel and ensure that both cylinders have not the same position on each wheel (like the pistons of an engine). My counterweight is not aesthetic but it is to show where it shoulb be.
