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 second volume ("Modeling") describes how to build an accurate 3D model of a historical aircraft. You can learn here how to use for this purpose a popular, Open Source program: Blender. It starts with a general introduction to this environment. This guide introduces various modeling techniques, while recreating subsequent parts of the P-40 airframe.
