Simply put, your best guide is to simply take an .oxp with a single ship in it and study the folders and the files yourself. Just change the bits the way you want them to be for your new ship and that's it.

The only tougher bit is to find the coordinates for the exhausts etc., but since you can evidently use a modeller, it should not be that hard either.

IF some of the terms in the shipdata.plist leave you confused, go to the OoliteWiki and search for the term - you should find an explanation easily enough there.
