Here there are some pictures coming from the British destroyer HMS Vega as she was looking after conversion to "Wair" standards.It was a 3D model prepeared for the issue as a paper kit as well.

Nice work on your ships. I was wondering how you prepare the 2d CAD of the hull for the paper model.

It's easy.The bottom surfaces are done using "Loft"...and they can develope as 2D quickly.The hull above wateline I am doing using "smash" whcih can create almost good surfaces.Everything i connect later in Corel Draw and final shapa can be easy drawn .Of course at the end I check if is well fitted on the real paper model.

For surfaces below waterline I use function "Loft"...and it can be easy developed on 2D.Above WL I use "Smash" and join together to get "basic" shape.I export later all to CorelDraw and create "more curved" shape .The final fitting on the real model is a last chance to correct everything.All the rest is very easy like superstructures,guns etc.

Hello Adrian(a-graph), and thanks for sharing your work with us.

I have been struggling for years with the best way to generate ship hulls using Rhino 3D. You seem to find that quite easy, but I am not sure I quite follow how exactly you do that. What is this 'Smash' thing that you mention ?

I believe that my biggest mistake is to try to build the hull in one piece, as to ensure optimal continuity. I do not need to develop the surfaces and my models are not for paper kit making anyway.

Could you elaborate a little on your workflow with Rhino ?

Thanks in advance.
