HEA Hopper Conversions: MFA Render

Fastline Simulation - HEA Conversions: A render of the completed shape for an MFA open box wagon. Originally converted from an HEA Hopper into an MEA mineral wagon these wagons were further converted with a reduced height body for infrastructure work.
It's always satisfying to see the first complete renders of a shape before the unwrapping for baking and textures starts. The MFA mineral wagon is certainly no exception to that feeling.

Just like in real life this shape is a conversion from an MEA mineral wagon with the height of the sides reduced and other small changes for it's use as an infrastructure wagon. The chunky nature of the body makes for a rugged looking wagon and if you've ever seen an excavator unloading one of these wagons during engineering works you can appreciate why they need to be tough!
