Default Help with drawings

I have a set of outline drawings for a model I wish to build
I have side elevation and end elevation front and rear
I know the full size dimensions

What I need to know is from what I have how do I convert my drawings so I have a drawing of the bulkheads at various points along the hull

Someone once showed me how to do it fairly simply but unfortunately I have forgotten how

Any help or pointers to tutorials greatly appreciated

P.S I will be doing it on paper not on a computer

Thanks

if you have scaled drawings you can just measure where the bulkheads will go. try it in cadboard first and them just go for it. It will come to you. adjust as you go. There is as much fun in building as there is in running RC BOATS. Just jump in. Too many people miss the fun in building there own boat. Besides it is a whole lot cheaper! Nothing compares to beating a fancy store bought boat with you home built one. its getting to be a lost art in the Hobby. Glad to have you aboard!
