I assume you mean in SU. Sure. Go ahead.

this doesn't belong in the LayOut forum though so I'll move it.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could easily see myself doing.

Can you be more specific? Exactly how much experience with (ship) modeling do you have?

Certainly can be achieved with SU, just keep your poly count down, use components and model in symmetry.

There are some topics you might be interested in like these: viewtopic.php?f=333&t=35820&hilit=ship+modeling

Also make sure you check out SU video tuts. Tutorials on airplane fuselage modeling might come in handy as well: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1183219

Downloading some 3D warehouse models to see how they were built might also be a good idea.

You're likely to become overwhelmed attempting such a model if you're new to SU. I would suggest starting out with something a little simpler (like maybe a rowboat? :lol: ). Just a suggestion.
