Well, first on the list would be the all expensive 3D's Max which comes in at around $3,495. Alternatively, you could go with Milkshape 3D which isn't so expensive. You can download it form here.

also, try using the search function here, and especially at BCU and BCC - those forums have alot of info about modeling ships (i think BCU has a few stickied threads about it)...

Milkshape 3D is a low poly modeller which means that i can't create detalied models as good as 3D's max can, although, 3D's max is very much harder to use and it would be good if you have a long read of some modelllng tutorial's.
