It seems that the pictures in the opening posts are no longer in the working condition, while some discussions in the recent months in the AU and Personal Designs forums (recently esp. in the Mister Hoover's Navy thread) suggest that actually there could be some use for such type of tutorial, so I thought that at least I'll re-post the drawings here.
Also, there were (as You all can see in the earlier posts in this thread) some intentions toward developing a more comprehensive guide, covering all major categories of ships (esp. warships as these are most commonly drawn here, but doing at least some work on generic merchant ships would be also welcome).
If the plurality of Members consider that it would be worthwile to have such guide thread, I am willing to supply the drawings, but I would prefer to cooperation with someone better educated in technical aspects (the way Acelanceloet did it (partially) for initial entry).
