The four volumes of the "Virtual Airplane" series will teach you how to
create the model shown on the cover. It assumes that you may know
nothing about the 3D modeling software, so it starts the course from the
very basics (in Volume I and Volume II). In subsequent volumes the
author builds a computer model of the P-40B fighter. Every step of this
workflow is shown in numerous illustrations.
This last volume ("Detailing and Rendering") teaches how to finish a 3D digital model of a historical aircraft. This book demonstrates some advanced modeling techniques, as well as additional materials and textures (used to recreate cockpit interior and landing gear elements). In the final chapter it shows how to compose a convincing scene using a 3D model and a background photo.
