    Absolutely stunning. I love seeing the insides of these ships, trying to imagine life on board. These really bring the dimensions to life! Incredible work.

    I know what you mean barsoomcore. The crew members/space ratio is amazing. Here in this case the Captain's quarters only served for exotic plants. 774 pots in this room!

    I had time over the weekend, so I've done the yards. Now it's time to get back to the hull...WIP: HMS Bounty-full-masts.png

    The stern is nearly finished. It just needs a few adjustments when I will finish the upper deck.

    Absolutely amazing. That hull must have taken you forever. I've just started messing with SketchUp and round objects continue to taunt me with their curvyness. What kind of plan/blueprints are you using? I've been "commissioned" to make a map/image of an authentic pirate ship for a family member's novel-in-progress and have had a terrible time finding good layouts. You can find a few top-down of the upper deck and maybe side view, but never any really good looks at the masts, riggings, or lower decks.

    Thanks blackflamingo!
    The hull was indeed the most difficult thing so far. After 3 failed attempts I found a great tutorial here and gave it a try. The first results convinced me to carry on and now I am quite happy with it.

    Finding free blueprints of historical ships on the internet is nearly impossible. There is a great book series called "Anatomy of the ship" with detailed blueprints for hobby miniature shipbuilders. You can find the books on Amazon or elsewhere if you search long enough.

    There I am using Silo for modeling I can not help you with SketchUp.

    I hope to post a WIP next week, except the figurehead and rigging (the next challenges), putting all things together I have so far. It will be the first time I'll see it altogether. Can't wait to see it, but now it is time to optimize many things that won't be seen at the end...

    Thanks a lot for the rep torstan and Troedel

    Here are the promised pics. I've subdivided many objects to a medium level. The resulting file size is ~70MB. Silo is a bit slow but stable.
