Indeed, there is no white in the lining of BR black livery at all. The thick band is a light grey, and on the edge of the grey band facing the red line is a straw - coloured line. Looking closely at the screenshots, 4472 has done this correctly, so I would personally be tempted to darken the lining slightly. The model looks excellent, well done. :)

This site has good info on LNWR lining, for some reason the "straw" colour does appear white in some photos.

Tom I always thought the DT 4MT was the best representation of a clean black loco by any developer so far, it just looked right.

Thanks for all the feedback, interesting to hear about how the 4MT was created.

Odd as a photo I have of 31806 taken at the MHR Spring Gala in 2011 when the engine was pretty much brand new into service, shows white instead of a cream?! :-?
Anyway here are the promised screenshots, showing the two other liveries that will be included with the U class.

Firemans side looking across at the drivers side.

Just sorting out the final few niggles with the BR Lining flickering from certain angles and distances, but shouldn't be to difficult to fix.

Enjoy the screenshots

That looks brilliant. I love the cab especially! May I just suggest a few things:

The SOUTHERN on the tender of the black version should be the same font as on the green version. Is it possible to enlarge both the cabside numbers and the tender branding? The height of the SOUTHERN may also need adjusting.

Looking at the tender on the Green version and comparing it with the link below (I do realise that your version is a K Class rebuilt whereas 1638 is not, but I don't think there should be a difference with the livery) here I think again some adjustments to the size might need to be made. The positioning of the number and the branding looks fine though.

I hope these adjustments won't be too hard to do :)

Big thanks to all who have helped me to get this far.

Now to make a start on the V 'Schools' Class :roll: :wink:

P.S Could a Moderator move this into the Building Rolling Stock thread in TS2013 Please.
Many thanks
A very happy 4472 :lol:

Hi 4472 (sorry I don't know your name),

Beautiful job done on your Maunsell U Class, I especially like the effects you have achieved with the Safety Valves, nice touch. The realistic operation of the Injectors is also something I particularly like, a very good job done with them. Unfortunately I will not be able to experience "driving" your brilliantly presented Loco as £13.00 is too expensive for my budget I'm afaid :cry: , but I do wish you good luck with sales to our more 'affluent' enthusiasts and hope you do well.

I am forced to agree here, I think 13 quid is a bit steep, especially for a southern loco ( :wink: ). if it was maybe, between 3-8 quid, then this would be a definite purchase.

Well done for a fantastic loco, and I look forwards to the Schools!!

Super stuff!

Can't wait for the 'Schools' class.

Just need some Southern 1950's/60's era routes to run them on.

I'm a southern fan and theres not much available at the moment and this is a welcomed loco very good for all kinds of work and has taken you a long time to make much better than most of us could do.

Heres the crunch as much as I like this kind of loco one of my favourites it is to expensive i would say £6 - £8 seeing its your first one,I cannot get any pictures of the u that are lighter and the loco looks far to black so if you can send me some pictures it would be nice thanks for your hard work but I wont purchess it at £13 thank you.

Has any one purchased a class u loco yet and what do you think of them,what I can see of the pictures the linning over the wheel splashers seems a bit wonky and the loco a bit dark other than that the model looks very good also could do with early emblem on the tender as I havent seen one as yet .

Hi everyone.
Sorry for the lack of updates. :-?

U class patch is in the final stages of testing, should fix the performance issues some have experienced, and might even add a few new features!

Meanwhile, made a start on the Schools Class, and here are the first WIP screenshots. Early days yet, but I'm quite pleased with how it looks.
