Hi Folks,

I've been getting to grips with Lightwave over the past few weeks for my Animation module, and it is sometimes difficult to get help so I was pleased to find this forum!!

I am trying to create a basic model of a plane as part of an assessment. I have been using a cone in layer 1 for the body, and have been creating polygons within layer 1 for the wings and the tail fin.
What I was wondering was, for something like a plane, is can you do it with the cone and the polygons in one layer or is it preferable to create different shapes in different layers for the other parts?

I haven't found any other suitable way to do the wings yet, so any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Dug

There are a ton of modelling tuts out there and many deal with Cars & Planes so worthwhile checking places like

To be honest, there are many ways of modelling and folks have their own preferences.
