I alsoapplied all thecurves to theirown laer so I

The hullof the ship wasmade by usingMaya's birailfunction tosweep curvesalong two railcurves to getone side of thehull. The hullsurface wasthen mirroredto get thecomplete hull.

I then build thefront deck, bylofting the topcurves from thehull. Thepassenger'scabin deckswere thencreated byduplicatingcurves from thegeometry ofthe hull andlofting them.This ensuredcontinuity ofthe surface.To get thelower deck (thecutout in theside of the hull)I projected theshape of thelower deckonto the hullsurfaces andtrimmed awaythe holes.

Iinserted acylinder as abanister andduplicated it,running insidethe lower deckside, to getsome easy,yet effectivedetail on thelower deck.
The chimneywas createdfrom a coupleof loftedcurves.

Iadded a fewcylinders,serving asantennas andcreated alifeboat from ahemisphere.The support forthe lifeboatwas made byextruding acircle along acurve.The lifeboatsections werethen duplicatedand placedalong the sideof the ship'sdifferent decks.
