Hi Everyone, I thought I'd post my latest W.I.P. "Queen Ann's Revenge"
I got the line drawings from this website, thank god (hard to say for an atheist like me) for google translation
From the line drawings I created a frame using bezier curves, and extruded a plane around it... I had tried just extrufing the verts, then found out I had issues placing the cannon, the curves make it easier to add detail down the line, heres a vid showing what you can do in an hour just using the verts... quick, but problematic:
I then found out that your better off placing the verts from horizontally, rather than vertically :
Hopefully this will be useful, the mistakes I'm making are certainly helping me...
One other thing I've found out, is that you dont want to be too precise... this is my biggest hurdle, I need to remember to make it work first, and if the model can vary to make it work... all the better, the plans aren't the be all, end all.
EDIT: another update
