Once you’ve learned how to “read” a ship plan, it’s time to learn about the components that create the three-dimensional shape of a ship’s hull that is represented in two dimensions on those plans.

The shape of a ship’s hull is determined by five main structural members. Each of those structural members serves a distinct purpose that a model shipbuilder must understand, whether they are scratch-building or building a commercial model ship kit.

We carefully explain each of these structural elements on our page The Hull, Heart of a Ship.
