Out of the oven - VDA version 1

Fastline Simulation: First VDA van baked and into RailWorks.
After what seems like an age of tinkering because I just wasn't happy with the results the first version of the VDA is baked and in RailWorks.

With the bake setup now settled the next three shouldn't take anywhere near as long!

VDA - The Final Version

The last few days have seen the final master versions of the VDA vans for RailWorks created and a start made on unwrapping ready for pre-shading and texturing. The last things have been a few niggles spotted by the beta testers along with adding some missing brake gear to the disc braked versions and creating the experimental clasp braked version.

The two renders (using a different set up than usual) show an original van built as lot 3855 with disc brakes and the lower one shows the experimental lot 3890 clasp braked version. The differences are subtle from this angle but just about discernible.
