I tried studying this http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/81020 in order to get an idea of how to model my ship. Problem is, everything is applied, all modifiers are applied, so I cannot really study it.
I have no idea as to:
How to model the hull. I have struggled with this for hours, and I have yet to come up with a satisfying solution.
How to evenly place the cannon-holes and evenly place the hatches. On the model, it looks as if it is all made using an array modifier, but surely it is not, because of the uneven shape of the ship’s hull (curving inwards some places, curving outwards elsewhere etc.)
Please tell me how I do this.
