I. AM. HYPED.

I rode a few of these today in Harlem and The Bronx. Even though they're gonna be retiring them soon, I'm still very excited for this. It looks good so far.

I personally love these buses, noticed that it's been getting overlooked so i decided to start making it.

Decided to redo the entire bus from scratch due to issues with the model, however, it looks and works much better than before. Here's what I have done so far:



As you can see the back has a floor, windows and the door so far modelled in. I'm currently in the process of doing the same to the front portion of the bus.



As i continue modelling and learning, the model should resemble the actual bus (That's what I'm hoping for at least) so in the meantime I'll continue and keep you updated as much as possible.

He hasn't even finished the shell yet. Just hang in there, it'll get done when it gets done. Plus I doubt he has a specific timeframe on when he plans to create a beta.

I don't have a specific timeframe set, and as for the Payware or Freeware, I haven't decided yet. I don't want to say anything until I'm certain about it. So yeah, just hang around and I'll keep you updated when I get a substantial amount of work done.

More updates and pictures because why not?



Skeleton is about done, Blinkers, Headlights, taillights, and wind shield are in the making. I'll keep you updated on that though.

it is looking great it might be as good as the rts maybe even better :)

Not much has been worked on since I've been working all week long, HOWEVER, I still have a bit of presentable work done. That being the Headlights, the Work in progress Wind Shield and a few other misc. details as shown below. Just know, over time, I'll add much more details to the little stuff:





I also did start a different version of the D60HF which is the King County Metro version. Not going to give too much on it and won't prioritize it over the MTA spec.

Haven't updated you guys in a month, but quite a bit has been accomplished. One being the infamous Windshields. They don't exactly replicate the actual bus (it being really curved and bootiful) But I've got it to where it doesn't look terrible until i continue to play around with it a bit more. Wheels have been added in, quite fancy. As of tonight, August 13, 2017 I've started on the bellows for the articulation. So once i continue finishing up that, I'll get to fixing the rear of the bus as the rear corners are too sharp. Same applies to any corners on the model so far that has too much of a sharp corner.

Bellows in the making:

Windshields:

Rear of bus: (What's in red is what needs to be curved)



I want to make this bus as quality as possible. Since I still find myself as a beginner, I am taking my time to prevent myself from rushing and butchering this bus. So sorry for such a long wait but I don't want to goof this lol.

Most likely won't do any BETA tests since I don't want a bunch of versions of this bus on the internet.
