Here is the aft deck, or stern deck, or, as in the drawings of the Balclutha,
poop deck.

Cheers
Ton.

Hi Mr,

I try to switch from Poser to Makehuman and Blender for modeling humans 
in MakeHuman und posing them in Blender. That works fine and I would 
like to test your POV-exporter but I cannot find this tool within 
Blender (Edit-Menu/Preferences/Add ons). So there seems to be a problem 
with the accessibility of your tool in Blender (Version 3.0).

Regards
Michael

Here is another bit of progress, the fronts of the fore- and aft-decks are
there, making the ship weather tight, plus the portholes are in place, so it's
not so dark inside.

Cheers
Ton.

Each time, I am awed by the seemingly out-of-hand way you build your 
models. In your place, I would endlessly tinker with the object, 
constantly changing, amending, restarting from scratch, before being 
satisfied and after being often frustrated. Good, clean, job, sir. 
Waiting for the next stages, masts and rigging I assume. Some more decks 
and pilot house, yes?

Thanks for the compliment, Thomas. I do tinker, change, before satisfied. The
main thing is to make up your mind and say, okay, this is it! Some sample,
close-up renders, yes, it looks good, done, Otherwise you're never finished. I'm
not a perfectionist in the sense that everything has to be the correct size up
to the millimeter, or 1/16 of an inch (this is an imperial ship, after all). I
don't think I would have the patience, or stamina, to do your work on the
granites,
The decks are finished, there are not many structures on deck. The maindeck has
some quarters and the carpenters shop. The aftdeck has a chart house, the
steering wheel is outside. There are a couple of things on the deck, like
britts, fife rails, railing, and then the masts with all the rigging. So still
plenty to do.
Attached are close-ups of the foredeck and aftdeck from the maindeck.

Cheers
Ton.

It is not so much that I am a perfectionist (I am a bit but not 
excessively) but I have regularly problems with finding the 
right/correct way to do things or to apply the correct solution to a 
problem.

I am slowly working towards the moment when I shall reveal some of my 
recent work: an architectural project I started in 2009 with Moray, 
shelved till the beginning of 2021, interrupted by the granites project, 
and restarted in January 2022...

Very nice indeed. Pristine clean paint job too. :-)

I like that decorative curved-wood railing(?) around the fore-deck. A
sphere-sweep?

I am watching the construction of this ship with interest; nice work so far.
