Some more progress made on the O405N.

To begin with, I did a complete re-design of the back of the bus as I felt the old one wasn't as good as it could have been.
Next, I attempted to create some wheels for the whole thing to sit on, I'm rather pleased with the ones at the front, not so much the ones on the rear.
And finally, I have begun to experiment with textures, I feel even though there's only a hand full of textures on the model, they seem to have almost bought the whole thing to life.

Looks amazing, keep up the amazing work! :D
Though I don't think that rear was ever used on buses built for the UK... might be wrong though. :)

Travel West Midlands operated just shy of 200 O405Ns, between 1998 and 2013 - when the last of them were withdrawn.

Here's a photo of one of the rears (not my photo)

Loving the progress on this project - the O405N was one of my favourite vehicles to don the local streets, in real life.

Wishing you all the best with this project. :)

So after my post the other day I realised I had forgotten to add an emergency door, luckily I was able to add that in without too much trouble. I also modelled the rear wheel correctly so it actually looks as it should. Finally, I've been adding various details, messing around with colour and creating the cab space.

P.S If anyone has any tips, guidance, suggestions or even criticism I'm all ears. Feedback is crucial.

So I thought I'd have (another) crack at an 11.9m Omnidekka, but this time using the 'approved' program. Now got to find out what key snaps the ends of extrusions together, because of course assuming it was going to be either CTRL or shift was inevitably going to be wrong.
a sort of omnidekka thing.png

And it says Sketchup because I made the profile of the rear end there so I could import it and it already be the right shape. Plus I haven't learned how to project reference images onto faces yet because it will be 18302 times more difficult than in every other program. Probably.
