Fantastic work !!!

Are you going to draw all the interiors parts of the BB ?

That's the plan - I have limited information on some of the interior equipment so I'll have to make an educated guess on some of it.

Wow - I didn't know that many people were paying attention! I don't know French (I had to do a Yahoo! Babel Fish translation of the website, which doesn't do a very good job), so if someone could pass on my humble thanks, that would be great!

Have not been here for a while, and then I am truly astonished by Mark's work. Fantastic. You manage to put up so much in such a short time is remarkable, not to mention those imposing renderings. Definitely need a page in the ship listing here.

Emm, I should go back and put interior in my Dreadnought then. It had been a while I have not do anything on it. :oops:

I have just started CAD work on a USS Washington armored - sorry- armoured cruiser (ACR-11). I didn't know there were others crazy enough to do things like this.

I don't expect to be near completion for about 2 years. So far I have a funnel, a propeller, and a 10" gun barrel! I am waiting for data from the Nat'l archives; my "vendor" says "allow 6 to 8 weeks..."

Thus I am amazed at the BB-28 progress in just a few months!

I am using CATIA-5 (at least until my boss finds out). It allows dimensions, etc., to be revised after the fact, so it's perfect for working from photos (keep adjusting until it looks right).

I am also trying to model ship wakes- lots more complicated than it first appears!

You are not alone!!!

I knew this was an insane undertaking and I have actually paused on this one while I figure out how to best model some other interior sections - most notably the gun turret.

I guess the simple fact is that I really enjoy CAD although I'm not sure my wife really understands why!

I knew some more outside this forum and they are just as crazy as you can think. Here is one that I like very much. http://w2322.nsk.ne.jp/qm.masaki/. I am not sure if all the models are done by one person, if so, he must be a superman. :shock:

I don't expect mine to be finished within a predictable time frame, according to my requirement and my free time. But the good thing is, there will be long time of fun as you finish every little part and gradually having a whole.

Now that's what I'm talking about - whoever did the Yamato 3D model has an incredible eye for detail and a genuine talent in reading blueprints.

Some may think that constructing a 3D model from blueprints is simple, but it is, in fact, far from it! Visualizing a 3-dimensional object based on 2 or 3 2-dimensional views is quite challenging.

I can only hope to eventually reach that level of detail.

Mark D -- I am way behind on this, but I am going to cobble together a page showing your renders so far. I am trying to find a web guru who might help me refine a better template for the ship model pages.

My own web authoring is terrible.

Don't worry about being behind - I have paused on that project temporarily. This will be good motivation to get me going again, though!

Well, prepare to be underwhelmed -- my effort here was so humble, I saw when I posted this that I'd already MADE the page and linked it in. I just added minimal text about the ship and a link to her Wikipedia page.

I really hope to get someone to dress up the ship pages. So many nice models that would get so much nicer if only artists were encouraged to see their work in a better context than I've offered so far!

Hi,

That ship model is over the top amazing. I am working on a project for the naval academy museum and we are looking for ship models in MAX or compatible fromat. We need much simplified version as it will be an icon for a map of the battle. If you are interested let me know if it would be possible to license the model from you to use?

Thanks,

James LaPlante
