    Thanks man,
    Creating the instructions is a multi step (and for me multi program) operation:
    -LDcad, for creating the digital model with steps.
    -LPub3d, to turn the digital model into .pdf instructions.
    -Adobe Acrobat, for some touch ups in the .pdf file (Depending on the model this may take just as long as the work in LPub3d)
    -Adobe Photoshop, for creating all the different backgrounds within the instruction, and some post editing on rendered images.
    -Studio, for rendering the 3d model with photo real textures to use as front cover and promotional material.

    Now there is faster ways out there, you can use just Studio for all of this, however you'll lose out on customizability and some quality. Personally I set the quality very high, and thus I can't get away with just Studio.

    It is quite simple actually.
    The motor's are the trickiest, they are structurally integrated into the front and rear engines so you'll have to design something that resembles the mounting holes on them. (4 technic 7 long beams come a long way to represent 1 motor)
    The receiver sticks out the top of the boiler, when you take it out you can cover up the hole with 4 or 6 black 50950 curved slopes.
    The battery can be replaced with eight 2x4 bricks.
    The rest can be taken out without needing replacement.

    In order to do that you'll have to redesign the entire tender's bottom frame, as this frame is mostly technic. In the video (at 1:28) I show the entire underside of the locomotive in case you want to know what I mean.

    I'll have to disappointed on this one, all you will get is a pdf with step by step instructions. I honestly don't feel to comfortable having the 3d model out and about.
