< 3DCG >
I have modified William in many parts. In order to evaluate the style properly, I drew a CG of my loco with a 3DCG software "Shade".
I had planned to cut off rear part largely for easy access to the cab. But the CG shows that the cut will spoil toughness of the spectacle plates, and spoil the appearance. The runboard is too large, while the boiler is too slim. Also the steam dome is too slim, etc...
The CG looks very nice but it brings me many sources of worry.
