Can't remember how I found this tool, but it definitely is a easy to use and versatile polygon mesh based tool: Luxology Modo, currently at version 302. http://www.luxology.com/

I like it because I used NURBS tools to model the ship hull previously and it is a big pain when it comes to corner and sharp edges. Polygon mesh can handle those small details with much ease and don't need to worry about continuity when two meshes joined together. And precision and smoothness can be achieved fairly easily.

Here is one of the recent rendering of a carrier hull I did in Modo.

Wanna guess which ship she is? If you know WWII ships, you won't mistake it.

I think it's Taiho or Shinano. The former, I think, due to the enclosed bow.

Correct! She is Taiho. Closed bow, slant funnel. Very unique.

Though it is not very related to the site, I will post more when more is done

I agree, that's the elegant Taiho

Nice drawing.
