Just a short note, I would like to let everyone know of a new Flash video covering lofting techniques with Gmax. It shows how to build a simple nosecone and runs approximately 8 minutes in length. The principles can be applied to just about any object created in Gmax however. Feel free to view it at anytime.

I use the lofting technique for making long and bending pipes for the engine of my Nissan model. Frankly, I don't like using loft to make a nose. Here is a much better tutorial:

This is where I got most of my car-modeling skills. Very useful site I might add. Well, for me that is. I don't know how useful it is for plane modelers.
