    Free design software

    A couple of 4B pencils; and erazor, a ruler, Maths compass and a pad of graph paper are about the cheapest software you can get.
    Failing that, browse the web for 'demo' software. Most offers cater for PC - but if like me, you're a Mac devotee, it's TouchCAD:

    Allow me to second CGN's recommendation.
    Use the fewest number of control points in freeship that will allow you to get the shape you are looking for.
