First I copied the drawing for the ship and cut out the first level of the hull.
After adding 3 layers to the hull, I began adding levels for the quarter deck and forecastle.
Forecastle and quarterdeck added.
Both sides done..
After both sides were done I added the bow and some card on the stern. I can't figure out if Marks ship had the stern part of the hull sides split so as to make the hull narrower at the bottom. But for now I will just go with this.
Fairly pleased with it.. And may attempt to do 2 or 3 ships at a time once this one is done.....
