Cab 3D Interior

3D Cab Interior modelling and painting

Modelling the interior of the cabin took some time, based on a basic diagram, together with photos and video I shot at a Seymour Rail Heritage Centre open day.

Modelling was undertaken in Lightwave 3D.

3D Printing

3D printing was undertaken in my new Snapmaker2 A350 printer. All other 3D printed parts on the model were printed on an Aldi Cocoon touch.

Painting and final fit

The 3D printed parts were sprayed with a couple coats of primer, then painted with enamel paint. The lining on the interior walls and notices on the back of the chairs were laser printed paper decals, made in Photoshop from frame grabs of reference video.
