Help required for a difficult front

Post by Ski Tube on Sun Dec 04, 2011 10:08 am

This is the stock for the Batong Line in Beijing. I've done a front, and it looks reasonably good.

It may not seem too hard to construct a front from first view, but......uh......

That's the front, it's not exactly a cone or a pyramid, it's a pointy nose.
I shall not try to construct this thing, but am willing to give a few data figures.
The train is 2.6 metres wide, 3.4 metres high from the wheel to the roof, not including the air-con
It has a third rail toucher per side per carriage, and the train is 6 metres long.
Don't actually have photos of the side, but I'm willing to construct one.
Interior is shown here

I'm willing to let anybody, preferrably somebody experienced, to work on this with me, since I'll be travelling to Beijing later this month.
If anybody is interested, please pm me.

This doesn't look too hard to build, if I'm honest.
I can visualise how it can be done similar to Karlneil's Sm3 Pendolino head.
If my calculations are correct, than I may be able to take up on this one.

not really, a pendolino is sort of flat at the front, you know, just a flat stretch from top to bottom, a bit similar to our Line 8 stock. This one is pointy...

Even if it's pointed, I'm able to visualise it from top to bottom.

Okay, do you have any data or meshes you have to send to me?
