    Are you making some "helpers" to establish her hull shape?
    If not, she'd end up looking like she's made out of cardboard.... o_O

    Well, it's a step in the right direction at least! However, La courone is way outside of the initial time period for this game. Also those are plans for a scale model, not a proper set of plans that could be used to build a new ship. I'm going to recommend again that you begin with smaller objects that our props/weapons coordinators would assign. If this does not suit you, the most I can offer is a period-appropriate longboat whose plans I could provide you. Also, do you have any images of previous, completed work of yours in sketchup that we might be able to judge your work by better? I recall you saying that you have 3 years experience? A key thing to understand if you want to be a part of the team is that we are working towards a common goal, and as such the needs of the game come before personal preferences.

    It would be easier if you attached images instead of rar files. Everyone here can see the images but nearly noone has SketchUp 7. I only have SketchUp 6 on my HDD and I won't update that one because I don't need it anymore. So please upload images of your work and not the whole models. Thanks

    I've moved this thread to the Art forum for now, since this model is not required for Hearts of Oak at this time, as @Captain Armstrong states.
    You may continue to post updates for this model here. :)

    Hull shape is tricky...

    I've been using Sketch Up too, built some models like this one.

    If you like I could put together a little guide on building the hull shape in Sketch Up? :)

    Is that truly SketchUp? I wouldn't have believed it possible! Impressive indeed. :onya

    Yes, that is all SketchUp :)

    Except the cannon, Captain Armstrong gave them to me, think they were built in gmax or blender?

    SketchUp is really very good for modelling non-organic objects, just that to work with it you will be using very different techniques compared to other 3D programs . Probably gets written off by people who started in say Maya or 3DS Max because of this, they don't see the flexibility and ease of use, only that half their favorite tools are missing. But if you started in SketchUp... ;)

    new piece, look for errors in semicircles and edges to give the exact format of the ship

    Just a question: How in hell do you want to combine those parts? The edgleflow is horrible!
    The shape of the model seems ok...
