Hi,
I don't understand why you don't export directly using the pov addon ?
I really need the feedback to improve if something is broken?

I am using version 2.79, never went to 3. Too many changes, and I only use the
mesh editor.

Good. Taking shape rapidly. Are you using object patterns for the colors?

No, that didn't work. Especially with the fake gun ports. From the plans I took
the X- and Y-coordinates for the color bands, and with SDL I create closed
meshes, that I intersect with the hull. So the hull is split in 4 different
sections, each with its own color.
Here is the latest update, the hawsepipes for the mooring ropes are added, plus
the cap rail.

Cheers
Ton.

Managed to get the main deck in place.

Cheers

It reminds me a bit of a plastic kit, where you glue the two halves of the hull
together, and then add the decks and the rest of the ship.

Cheers

The fore-deck is in place. Onto the aft-deck.

Cheers
