  • Hi,


    It's thus the Volvo 7700A I and not the 7700A II for help. :)


    Great project!



    Thank you!


    Yep, it's the first series. As you can see i corrected the headlights since then so it looks like on the I.


    Also, I'm just gonna leave this render here as I'm going on a vacation, so there will be no progress reports for a while

  • Work did not stop. Few other members jumped on board, speeding up the process of finishing this beauty.


    Thanks to padarmartin, and the very helpful team at the BKV Kelenföld Bus garage, we got a chance to make measurements and photograph some details on one of their Volvos.


    Thanks to UP, and his amazing camera, we gained some incredibly sharp images of the small little details.


    Like this one:





    Another newcomer to the team is Sprintex, he will be doing most of the texturing around the dashboard. I'm quite convinced with his work so far :D




    And before I vanish once again diving into 3DS Max to continue the work, here are some interior shots for you, still unfinished but starting to take shape:




    Greetings!

  • very nice, you will make ZF and voith?

    Only ZF will be included in the first release, but at a later time I'm sure modders will make a Voith transmission available for it.

  • what the ticket printer you will build? [...]


    There are no ticket printers on the buses in Budapest. Passengers can buy printed tickets directly from the driver. The bus will be equipped with the FUTÁR passenger information system. This is the thing that let's you set the line and route.

  • Some news.


    Our team members are working hard, even when they run into technical difficulties that would stop others... :P




    Meanwhile I started texturing the seats, and also the dashboard.





    ...and completely re-did the front, although it is still not finished



    That's it for now, hope you drivers have a great day !


    :sd:

    Hi,


    At the moment only the 4 door version is planned, if you can provide technical drawings and photos of the 3 door variant i will consider it.


    The project is not dead btw, but I don't have much free time for it at the moment due to school. Here are some new pictures for you guys:
