Ok I see. I use AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor. I think I can show the wire frame for the lofts in Inventor, I did show them in the picture set I posted to this thread earlier. The first solid section was a set of increasing size elipses. The strategy I use in solid modeling is to use several different lofts to add features of the model, I use simple shapes(primative shapes ie sqare, rectangle elipse circle etc.) to achieve this. Now I started in AutoCAD in the early nineties with solid modeling that was constrained to simple extrusions for structure(formers, stringers etc) and surface modeling to see the complete shape. I did a little surface model tutorial in the workshop that will help in this area.

Read this and if there is still some holes in what your are trying to achieve we can see if I can or anyone else can help.
