name is Dominique Vaccaro, I'm currently living in Marseille,
South of France and I'm a ship buff, especially
passenger ships like yachts, cruise ships, liners and
ferries. Drawing, designing ships or building ships
models is my passion since my childhood when I began
to study them with care (or I should say with obsession)
and enthusiasm. I then managed to acquire some
technical background and to experience a short maritime
years ago, I discovered and began to use 3D software
with great interest.
How to join these two passions? ...These 3D models of
SS FRANCE, as well as other ships and boats and this web site are an answer to
ships were modeled and pictures are rendered with the
powerful NURBS modeler Rhinoceros 3D (www.rhino3d.com)
and its basic renderer.
these models into games for offering a new experience to gamers (currently Virtual Sailor) has
been a long task and they're now available
for download, in order to provide a true tribute that this remarkable liner deserves
and a sailable experience aboard these models.
or questions will be welcomed.
