Bah, pasted the wrong link. Good catch. I suppose its time to clean out the 'Favorites' eh? Anyways, you found the wikibook I was TRYING to point out. There are an insane amount of freeware models out there to use.

www.scifi-meshes.com and http://lwg3d.org/v3/ are two of my personal fav's. The gallery on the Lightwave Group page is phenomenal as is the one on the Blender site. Eye candy = inspiration in my book.

There wasn't much content in the book you pointed to, but a quick search turned up a lot of material here:


http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D


Thanks for the link, BTW. I hadn't seen the Wikibooks site before. Useful.

FYI to all, here is a good starting point for someone getting into Blender. It really helps if you have previous experience with any 3d system, CSG Cad or just surface modeling.
