Virtual Airplane - Modeling
Create Realistic Aircraft Models Using Free Software: Blender, GIMP, and Inkscape
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The four volumes of the "Virtual Airplane" series will teach you how to create the model shown on the cover. This guide assumes that you may know nothing about the 3D modeling software, so it starts the course from the very basics. In subsequent chapters the author builds a computer model of the P-40B fighter. Every step of this workflow is shown in numerous illustrations.
This second volume ("Modeling") describes how to create all the elements of an aircraft model (except the landing gear and cockpit interior - these details are covered in the last, fourth volume).
