I don't know of a tutorial THAT specific...

but if you can find one on modeling AIRCRAFT, you're likely to learn all the skills you'd need to build an airliner.

OK. So do you know any good tutorials covering aircraft making? I'm pretty familiar with the basics of AC3D, the part that has me stumped is the nose and cockpit part.

Um.... yes, I do. I authored an entire series on "How to Build Aircraft in AC3D"

Unfortunately, it's archived on a PC of mine that's down for HDD repairs at the moment, so not available right now. Also, I'm re-producing the entire series using Adobe Captivate, to increase its utility (as a series of more ubiquitous, and smaller .swf files instead of huge .wmv files), but that's quite a ways off.

However, since your interest is centered on the cockpit, I might be able to meet with you and show you some of the basics... if you have Skype.

At any rate, send me a PM and maybe we can coordinate something to get you started.

Thanks, but that link is dead as it comes up with a "The topic or post you requested does not exist" message.

Try this one:

It's only the beginnings of the process, but better than nothing.
