Virtual Airplane (4th edition) vol. 1: Preparations
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, gradually introducing new methods and tools. Every step of this workflow is shown in numerous illustrations.
This first volume ("Preparations") describes how to prepare and verify the reference drawings, which you need to build a 3D model. "Preparations" discusses various methods of checking and enhancing these reference images. You can learn here how to use photos and original aircraft documentation (including factory blueprints). This book can be also useful, as a guide on its own, for all those who would like to draw accurate scale plans.
