Ben fatto VonDos

I have just a minor remark: if you look closely at your model's bow and compare it with pictures of the real Queen Mary, you will surely notice that the prow was sharper in reality than it looks in your model. If you want. you can correct this little inaccuracy by splitting the edges composing ship's prow in your model

Yeah, that's right, and also the angle with the sea was greater :

Hi!
I'm going at work now, this evening i'll work a little again on this.
I'm also reducing a little the draft of this model, hull ander water appear to be a little too big, looking again at blueprints...





Thanks for your suggestions,
best regards,
Vd

@VonDos

The drawing posted by Kendras brings another small issue to our attenction. Apparently, anchors were accomodated in a recess of the hull in their rest position, but these recesses are hardly noticeable in your model.
Once again, edge-splitting their borders, would make them more obvious

Exactly, but the anchor slot should look darker than the rest, because of shadows. Is its UV projection overlapping other areas of the hull? If it is not, you can draw those shadows directly on the texture or, even better, if you send me the mesh of the bow section and the texture, I can bake an ambient occlusion map for that section, and blend it with the diffuse texture
