My friend Popeye, here You are!

Thanks for the compliment. True, I did a lot of work, so I made these last images because it seemed to me that nothing was happening.
Now I testing with ropes, making ropes, coloring, hardening! I still have some job to the hull but I need some digresion.

Also I will try to made a serving machine. It's interesting!!

regards
Barba

I am also so jealous of you guys able to cad up ship plans. I been doing solidworks and other cad for 35 ish yrs and drawn tons of planes etc for building for museums etc but when I try to do a ship most the basic drawings I find are so hard to read cause they so old.

My grandkids want me to do a pirate ship for them (they 5 and 7) for their room but I havent been able to figure out ship designing yet as only been trying for a couple months. I want to find a nice set of Brigantine drawings so I can design 3D modelled plans for one.

Hi JosepH

I have only one plan with bergatine, in spanish. If you need this, no problem.

Also, You can see on this forum log from GemmaJF about pirates and maybe tel a story to grandkids :D

http://shipsofscale.com/sosforums/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=1163

And I like some models of "Black pearl", looks nice.

I don't use CAD, but my friend yes. Few years ago, I ask him to make me some plans for one type of ship, popular here in Croatia.
He start with CAD, but somethinghs can not do (some parts with curves). He find program called MaxSurf and in combination with this programs He do the job.

For Thick Stuff terms, sorry :lol: .

regards

yea i think I grabbed up a nice one on black pearl somewhere. I am pretty decent at most the curves stuff I just need to find some fairly clean drawings to bring into cad. am trying to figure out how to do some images from anatomy of the ship series as they on both sides the page and no overlaps on the frames.

I will come up with some brig drawings maybe just do a small frigate like Queen Annes revenge

Good choice Queen Annes revenge, I look some picture, interesting ship.
When I start with this build, don't know how much time I spend to find this plans, its not easy to find what You need.

Patience, if I see something what You need I will find You.
