3D model of QE2
« on: Apr 11, 2010, 07:13 PM »
Hi all,

Let me introduce myself. I'm Thijs Morlion and I'm a Belgian student Digital Arts and Entertainment. One of our courses is 3D and for the exam in June we need to model a civilian vehicle of the sixties. So we have the choice between boats, airplanes, cars etc...

Now, I'm fond of ocean liners and I've chosen to model the Queen Elisabeth 2. The only problem I have is that I don't find enough good reference on the interent to model it in a sufficient way.

That's why I contact this forum. Maybe some people on this forum can help me with blueprints, sideviews, top views, front views and backviews of this mighty ship. Technical plans are also welcome, everything that I can use to get a good view of what the shape and such is looking like.

Also detail pictures of the decks and such (like the lifesaving boats, windows, the deck itself, floor, etc...)
You may contact me on thijs.morlion@howest.be which is my school e-mailadres.

Every help is much appreciated and if I find enough good reference, I'll start modelling and post my work in progress on this forum, so you can judge if I doing it correct!

Kind Regards,

Thijs

P.S.: I do my best to make no spelling mistakes in english ;)

Hello ThijsM and Welcome!

For a start, you might find these links (on the Forum) useful.
There are many members here who may be helpful to you as well!

This links to a website has been created by one of the Forum members - it is superb!
https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php/topic,993.0.html

This one is about models of QE2
https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php/topic,69.0.html

Another important thing for you to note is that Queen Elizabeth 2 in this case, has a Zee, rather than an ess!!
It's an easy mistake to make - as in other situations/ languages, Elizabeth has been spelt the other way. 
You'll need to get it right for your exam work! Looking forward to hearing how you get on!
Good luck!
Rosie

It will be important for you to be aware that there are lots of things on this site that are subject to copyright restrictions. Just in case you need more information, if you haven't read it already - it could be a good idea for you to have a look at this link, too.

Hi,

Thanks a lot already for these two websites! It's already a start. ;)

First I'll get as much as reference as possible because I think the Queen EliZabeth 2 (sorry for the wrong spelling in my previous post ;) ) is a hard ship to model in 3D because of the huge amount of details!

Nevertheless, I'll give it a try! Looking forward to more replies and help! The virtual tour I found on that website is really really good reference, all those details I found are very helpful. But that will be usefull for finishing te details of the deck, first I need to get the allround shape! :)

Thanks! ;)

Thijs,
    What year of the QE2 are you modeling?  You probably already know she's had many configurations since 1969 starting with the addition of penthouse suites in 1972 and many, many more over her 40+ years.  The most significant modification was in 1987 when, most noticeably, her funnel and aft seeping decks changed  significantly.

Let us know what year you are interested in and we will steer you in the right direction.  Not to influence your decision but I prefer her original 1969 look which seems to be in line with the description of your assignment.

There are lots of folks on this site willing to help you with photos, deck plans and most anything you need.  Of course we sincerely hope you will post a link of your finshed product on this board!

Hi,

The teachers set a limit from 1959 until 1971, so I think your suggestion is quite good ;)
I don't know a lot about all the modifications to the QE2, therefore I'm here to get enough information to model this as accurate as possible.

If I consider it possible to model all this in the short time left until June, I'll certainly will do my best to get a finished model!

So, the model of 1969 you suggested is fine! :)

Hi there.
As for photo. there are loads on the net of her. You must be awarer she has changed a lot ,so know the mods she has had for that period in time and see if that photo applies .For aerial photo use Google earth  ,there is a thread on here some were that shows some of her locations.
For plans. I know of only 1 set they are not that detailed. There are deck planes in old Cunard travel brochure.
The most photo of her on the net show her post 1987.
One place to try is the transport museum in Glasgow which has the builders model .

Here's another link - have a look at the galleries to see some images of QE2 when she was first built.

I'll save them on my pc to have a big collection of reference. The link to the photogallery where they show some pictures of the QE2 being build is also very usefull. It has some good shots in it which shows how the shape of the ship looks like!

But I see the front and the back of the ship has some difficult shapes, but I get a good view on that because of those photo's :)

Thijs,
    There may be a few you can use in here - https://www.flickr.com/photos/33120597@N03/sets/72157616250526148/.  They are from my family's trip on her in 1969.

Also, COS918's mention of this link - http://picasaweb.google.com/stowaway2k/VintageCunardPRPhotosOfQE2# - is probably the best web resource I've seen on the original 1969 QE2.  I would use this extensively.  

Also, don't forget the basics - length, width, height and so on.

Thijs,
What modeling software are you using?  We use AutoCAD, Revit, and Sketchup at work in the architectural office I work at.  I have a little modeling project underway to render QE2 back in the fitting out basin where she was built in Clydebank and would be interested in your digital model when completed.  Good luck with the project!

Hi Ken,

We use 3D Studio Max, wednesday we need to say to the teachers what whe are going to model, so then they approve or dissaprove our project. Hopefully they approve it! ;)

I don't know if I may give the model away because all the rights on our work is reserverd for our school. But I'll do what I can :)

I will post work in progress on this forum often so you guys can correct me were necessary. If anyone has some good technical drawings (with good I mean, not pixelated) they're welcome!

Here is already one try-out, it needs a lot of correction, but I did it for getting some kind of overall shape.

That looks amazing, good work!

However, I don't think the sides are curvy enough!  Hardly any of QE2's side is straight - she is only straight for about 25% of her length.... the curve from her bow doesn't stop curving until a 3rd  of the way along, and not long after that she starts curving in again towards the stern... i'll see if i can find a photo to explain what i mean.

There are lots of photos like this available - https://www.flickr.com/photos/vinceneale/3472049327/

The part of her hull that is catching the light, is flat, the rest is not.  Her sides only become a bit flatter when you're away up at one deck and the superstructure above

Thanks rob for the info ;)

I'll probably make her a bit rounder at when I'm finished, just for modelling purposes. ;)

Here are two new screenshots, I made some progress, but I want to know if she's recognisable and if I'm not making any mistakes.
The little red quad you see there, represents a human. But as I never been on the ship, it's very hard for me to get the measuring right ;)

The ship is finally getting some decent shape, here is another update ;)

I already tested some materials on the chimney, but that is just a test. When the overall shape is finished, I finally can start with the details, like the boatdeck (that will be a hard part and will take some time).

I have been working on a rendering of QE2 back in her birthplace of Clydebank.  We use SketchUp, an excellent modeling software program acquired by Google several years ago, in our office, as well as Revit, AutoCAD, and 3dStudio Max.  I found that someone has already built a 3D model.  I found this using Google Earth with the 3D object set on while cruising through Dubai, looking for QE2.  She is not shown in her current spot so the image is old (August 15, 2009 is the date listed), but she is the only 3D modeled feature in the port area so she sticks out instantly!  (she would anyway in a sea of cargo ship anyway  ;D)

It looks like a nice model, but I don't like sketchup as a matter of a fact, it's very limited. 3D studio max is way more complex and you can do a lot more stuff.

Because of the limited time I have and my other projects for school, it won't be a model that detailed, but I hope to finish it with some nice materials and some nice renders.

FYI, eagle eyed Rosie noticed "Alang, India" to the left of the posted image.  If you "fly" to their on Google Earth, it is very depressing and also not too far from Dubai.  You can easily make out the various ships on the beaches.  There is one liner visible on the latest image and I would guess it to be the Maxim Gorki.  This is an image I do not want to see repeated with a certain ship with a red funnel.  :(

Regarding the rendering, I totally agree that the SketchUp program is limited.  We using it effectively to render preliminary building designs and when used with Google Earth images, it can be a quick/effective way to show a new building in existing surroundings.  If you want to have some fun, click on the 3D elements and "fly" through NYC.  Most of the buildings have been rendered, creating a virtual city you can navigate through.

Good luck on your rendering!  It's coming along nicely.

You beat me to the punch, Rosie.  I think the model is very good overall but being a "purist" it looks like there is one deck too many between the Sports Deck and Signal Deck.  Otherwise it is a fabulous rendering.  I can't wait to see it all painted up.

@Twynkle: You don't have to be afraid to give comments, I like them :D This forum has been useful since the very beginning of my task, tnx for that! This task has to be finished by the 14th of June. So normally it can be finished, not so many details left to model anyway. Because I probably will take a shot from the front, I just need to make sure all the detail in the front is correct.

@Twynkle, Bob C and Peter: yeah, I got some troubles modelling the correct bridge, but I'll check it out and I'll make sure it looks correct ;)

And I have an additional question. I've got the remark from some people that this image looks quite unrealistisc because of those mountains. But is it disturbing for you guys if the QE2  is rendered with such a background? :p

Great work!  How many hours have you put into it now?  I think the bow especially, from the superstructure forward, is nicely done - it looks pretty much right.  She still looks too slab-sided to me though... she is too flat, and too straight at the waterline... QE2 was beautifully curvy - image attached at a similar angle to your first image.

The railings are good, as they add a sense of scale to the ship.

Excellent work Thijs and nice correction on the "bit beneath the bridge".  She's really taking shape and I'd say she'll be good enough for an "A" on the project once the "CUNARD" and B and Q deck windows are included.  If you're like me though, you'll probably continue to tweak it looking for perfection.

Outstanding job!!!

You will probably also need to add the mast before you can sit back and relax! I'd say that's a tough job though...

And thanks for letting us follow your work as you do it. It has been wonderful to see the progress you have made!

Hey, ThijsM!
Is that an iceberg on the Horizon?
Here's the Mast Topic!

And as you say, the lovely round white receivers ( I think??) would be a good addition too!
Your anchor cables are so neat!

Don't mind the 'iceberg', it's some rendering mistake :D
I need to find a suitable background to render with, but I'll first finish the model itself.

Thanks a lot for that topic about the mast, I hadn't a lot of photos but I knew it had a difficult shape to model. I won't go into detail that much because on such a render from afar, that isn't visible. ;)

Now I added the windows and the "CUNARD" you mentioned. It isn't still perfect though, so I'll tweak it some more!


If you want to have a look at the font used for the Cunard sign, you can find it here :

... and the following photos. But that may be taking it a bit too far  ;D  !

Thanks for the photo's of the font! It can come in handy!

Now, I need to make an advertisment for the QE2 with my model. It has to be in '60 - '70 style. Anyone has some good examples or suggestions?

Hi guys,

The exam is near! Monday I need to present the teachers the QE2! Here are some renders after postproduction in photoshop. The last one is the ad I made, but it need some text under the photo (don't know what yet :p)

The first one is a render I edited in photoshop, I used it in the ad!

Looks very good, I must say!

But just for your text : Queen Elizabeth II is the Monarch, while Queen Elizabeth 2 is the ship. Perhaps this can still be changed...?

Hope all goes well for you in the exams! You have certainly worked very hard, and very well  ;D  !

Hi ThijsM

It's truly amazing!
And as Isabelle mentions - As you have done on the bow - It is  2, not II!
It's an interesting 'Z' in the font in the Ad!

BEST OF LUCK!

Hi ThijsM  :)

How did you get on?

Hope both you and QE2 passed with Top Marks,
and that you won't have to wait as long for your result as we have been waiting for News of QE2!

Well, they found it really good! Except for some minor detail errors and finishing details that were finished to fast. But I think that has to be an A.

I'll now it on the 28th of June :p

That's Great! :)
Keeping fingers crossed for you as well as for QE2!

Those 'minor details' that you mention - not details actually on your QE2?
Did you have to show an proper image that you had worked from, as well as your model?
Anyway - minor details won't get you into trouble, will they  ;)?
If you had done something odd with her funnel :o - then that might be a bit of a problem!!

No, it were 3D technical stuff, so nothing related to the QE2 herself.

Those little problems shouldn't be such a big deal, so I hope for an A! ;)

Hi,

Finally I've got a 12/20 for the 3D model. I think it's because of the technical errors in my 3D-model. I expected more, but I'm quite satisfied with my overall result.

I succeeded in my first year (25 of the 160 pupils succeeded in their first year), so I'm looking forward to the second ofcourse!

Yet again, I thank you all for the great help ;)

Regards,

Thijs

Must be a tough professor.  Your model looks good in fact on my first glance of it on my iPhone I thought it was an actual photo.  I wish I had the time, patience and skill for if I did, I'd make a 3D model. I'd even make it a walkthrough with interior details for a true virtual tour (and perhaps a virtual voyage?).
