Red face Henri IV

Hi, all!
After a disappointing affair with Blender, which is very attractive but wanting in other respects, I decided to come back to good old AC3D, which has yet no equivalent.
Here is my latest WIP: the French 2nd class battleship "Henri IV", lauched in 1899. I will have to finish it, as it is my first commission!

I hear you, and agree 100%. Only moving to Solid Edge ST5 has given me the same features, but even it can match the texture editor.

Yeah, I've been trying blender, but I'm having too much trouble with it. I will consider it for animation work, but the objects I'll model in AC3D.

Finished ! After my unfortunate love affair with Blender and not a few technical problems ( "Henri IV" was a rather weird ship, even for a French one, and therefore tricky to deal with ) I had come to consider this as an unlucky model, but eventually it turned out all right ( I hope ). I had thought I would never see the end of it!
As it stands, the model has about 45,000 vertices.

@Andy : Thank you for your remark about water. The result of a simple tutorial about "Water in POV-Ray" by a gentleman from Germany. If you are interested, I think I could get you the URL or something.
