Sorry about the pun. I'm at week three with this build and I'm really happy with the progress! I'm about 98% done the tender. At this point I've put in a few hours a day and taken the weekends off. So, we'll say about 30 hours into it so far. I can't wait to get past the tender and start on the engine!!!

So, it's been about a week and I've got the first set of wheels for the tender all done. I'm still struggling with trying to be accurate as possible while not getting bogged down in minutia. When this is all done, you'll barely look at these wheels since they visually will make up about 2% of the whole thing.

American Locomotive Company 4000-class 4-8-8-4 articulated, coal-fired, steam locomotive. Also known as 'Big Boy'. Jesus. Should I even do this?! It's overwhelming to say the least. I originally wanted this to be a Rhino 5 learning experience, but it's a massive horrible beast and I think I shouldn't bite off more than I can chew so early in Rhino. But even in ZBrush... I don't know. Am I a fool for taking this on?
