Progression this past week has been on more on various details.

Began working on the interior, not sure yet whether it will have orange or red bars, will depend on the seat fabric andrepaint it gets released with.

Other details include working on the dashboard(VERY WIP) and cleaning up the model as a whole.

My opinion would be the Orange bars as it gives more memories to the ones at NXWM

After a wonderful day at Wythall last week, I was lucky enough to see a TWM spec O405N (1707) in person for the first time in years. After getting up close I noticed errors with the current model so work began on correcting those. You may notice that I have modelled an old-style TWM ticket printer and cash dispenser, this will hopefully be scripted to work as they would have when they were operational.

Whilst onboard TWM 1707, I was also able to get some detailed reference and texture images, showcased by the new and improved headlights. The wheels both front and back have also been re-done (hopefully for the final time), but still require texturing and other details.

Some progression from this past week.

Many minor adjustments, which make a big impact.

Outstanding work!
Even though new buses are good and all, it's great to see an older bus being made for OMSI 2! :D
I do have a question though: What about the sounds? Do you have some sound recordings of this bus, and if not, which sounds will it use?
Thanks in advance, and again, great work! :)

So I'm on good terms with the private owner of V177MOA (1707), hopefully, that will be the bus that gets used. As 1707 is the only running TWM/NX O405N left in existence, I'm really hoping nothing should happen to it.1707, in particular, has an amazing sounding ZF Ecomat - We need more loud ZF's in OMSI!

Exactly.

Ah, nice! Very nice! :D
Yes, we do need more loud ZFs. Hopefully there will be one in V3D's upcoming Spectra. 😛

Ahhh you're bringing back so many memories from Coventry's old 0405N's. I honestly love the progress you have been making. Can't wait for more updates in the future! :)

Been a while since the last update, been difficult to make large progress due to various life commitments, as I'm sure everyone can relate to. Since the last update, the front of the bus has been re-done from scratch. You may not notice a difference, but I'm much happier with it now.

As you can see the interior is coming along nicely, various texturing issues with the fabric will be corrected at a later date.

The two interior renders are a result of me experimenting with the Eevee render engine.

The Ext body is now 100% complete (until I notice more inaccuracies 🙃 )
My time will now be spent finishing off the interior, and getting that as detailed as possible. The current seat mouldings are temporary and will be going through a makeover very soon.

The aim is for it to be in an Alpha format by either Christmas or at the start of the new year - ( THIS IS NOT SET IN STONE).

Enjoy!

If you are stuck for sounds & tuning i would highly suggest you try a mod by Omsi Bus Sound Garage. They made a mod for the O405 by Julian as well as the 3Gen & they are quite spot on in sounds & tuning to what videos ive seen of the UK O405s.
