My forthcoming design is a Jaguar airplane. I'll be doing two variants- the strike and maritime attack versions. I will be using Blender to model the aircraft, and the Inkscape/GIMP combination for scaling and texturing. I will be documenting the whole procedure here, with screenshots of progress. First, I need to plan the parts to be constructed. This is one odd-shaped airplane, so I'll need a few hints from experienced designers here. For instance, I had initially tried to model everything monolithic. I ended up with some odd shapes for the wings, and the tailplane was tough to align. Moreover, there was that annoying phase above the engines, behind the canopy towards the tail, which holds the wings. I need a solution for that. Here's the problem area marked.
