Most people use AC3d for building the models.


You can download a tools and tutorials pack from here: http://www.fsww1.com/Downloads/Tools_Tutorials_FAQs.exe

It doesn't include AC3d, but version 3.6 is best if you get it.


Others have made models with anim8or and 3ds Max.







Hello Argon,


Many thanks for the info, will give that a try. Would like to build a Martinsyde Elephant, there were quite a few in use but they haven't become 'household' names like the Se5a etc.

Anyway , one step at a time :good:
