So...Need Help!

Lets just say, after a bit of searching, I came across an old 18th century drawing for a frigate, infact, it was a 18th century contstruction drawing, that outlined the ship, a blueprint.

Using it I to make the hull, but I have a bit of a problem. Yes! The underpowered laptop that I have cannot handle that amount of faces! I tryed the Optimized no avail,

so, any 3ds Max gurus out any ideas on lowering the amount of polygons from 75000....

Maybe other people knows about tools or plugins to decrease the polygon count of a model, that doesn't ruin the mesh, the smoothing, etc.

I don't know it, my advice is re-start, it will be worthy

Can you post some screens? I'd love to see a 3D model of a frigate :)
