Hi guys,
I am modeling a Blackhawk helicopter in Lightwave for an upcoming project.
Since I have never sone this kind of model, I wanter to hear your input on
what would be the best way to model it.

Should I use splines?
Subdivision surfaces?

Looking forward to your input.

I'd sure go with Spline patching and SubDs but that's me :). I love spline patching so I'm litlle biased ;).

Having done the resent Kurv car modeling DVD's I'd have to agree....

I would also recommend spline patching it. If you can find a model kit thats even better because you can take measurements off of it and build from that. :)
