You can't beat a good blueprint for modelling. 8-)

I'm almost positive I can make a ship that looks EXACTLY like those pics.

Hi, with your blue print, what happened to the 2000ft length overall? What was your issue that she is now 2441 ft? (over 20% departure from plan).
How can you say the superstructure is finished when we can't see a single deck (like the life boat stations) and promenades, portholes, railings and what have you on at least "a couple" of stories (she is 12 stories keel to top of structure) so there would be at least 5 decks above the main deck?
Except for that, I'll give you this: your boat resembles the blue print, fair due to you (but for the length and your "finished" statement). Think about the funnel arrangement, she is sexier with just the one?
So my take is that you model against blueprint but failed with LOA and decks (your stories).
Keep at it, my first boat was a hell of a lot worse (Ron winks),

Ohh, an edit, before you go further, first thing to do, with any model, is the import into the sim, just so you know what it looks like..... (in sim).
Second edit: bulb on bow? Where is it?

Looks very square with unnatural edges.
