    Try researching naval architecture. One source:

    http://ntl.bts.gov/DOCS/narmain/narmain.html#future

    Page down through the main web page to the section titled: "Glossary of Terms". Under this you'll see a link to "Ship's Lines & Model Testing".

    The website is by a naval architect so the information should be reliable.

    Are you actually trying to make the physical 3d model? Or are you trying to create elevations of it or just an isometric/axonometric (i.e., only draw it that way, not fully 3d)?
