The four volumes of the "Virtual Airplane" series will teach you how to
create the model shown on the cover. This guide assumes that you may
know nothing about the 3D modeling software, so it starts the course
from the very basics. In subsequent chapters the author builds a
computer model of the P-40B fighter. Every step of this workflow is
shown in numerous illustrations.
The third volume ("Materials and Textures") teaches how to "paint" a 3D digital model of a historical aircraft. While everybody can guess what the mesh modeling phase is (see Volume II for details), the methods revealed in this volume are the "secret weapon" of professional illustrators. The materials and textures are the magic wand, which transforms clay-like computer models into real, detailed airplanes.
