My very slow learning curve on TC progresses,  I only use CAD occasionally but thanks to this forum I learn a bit slowly, it is very helpful.

The sculpture for Port Glasgow I have been working on for several years now is progressing well. Two colossal shipbuilding figures fabricated in stainless steel sheet, standing 11 metres high each. So hopefully attached here is a head of the 'Grumpy' shipbuilder. I was wondering if there would be a way of drawing this in TurboCad, maybe assembling pieces of sheet as the facets and building it on screen. I would need to have each facet in a format that could be stretched at each corner, rotated in space, attached to adjacent facets, but always able to be adjusted. Do you think it is possible?

Happy Head on other figure. The plug (spot welds) symbolize rivets of ship hulls - they do not need to be drawn in the TurboCAD version.
