Preliminary dorsal view


Preliminary dorsal view

Day 2 (1:00 a.m.): Finally got AutoCAD to cooperate, it kept crashing every time I tried to add the ellipse that formed the mid-ship dome. Had to tweak the wings a bit, either my numbers were more off in this direction than length-wise, or I took too much curve off of the tips. Either way the Ro-Tarn's wingspan is exactly 68 meters now. Now that the basic dorsal view is done I can move on to the vertical cross-sections to better lay out the individual decks. I love making ships with complex shapes, but man if it isn't hard to figure out ceiling heights and usable deck area sometimes. Once again I'm glad I decided to come up with this method of the Rota beforehand.
