Thanks D, you have helped to crystalize thoughts that have been developing in my mind the last few weeks. I have read enough and modeled enough now that it makes sense to me that you use different techniques depending on the situation.

First off, it helps to know how you want to build something before deciding on a modeling approach and how much detail is needed. I've been using Curviloft by Fredo and thought that was going to do everything, but now I see the value in learning how to hand-draw too.

Eventually I would like to be able to mill a fuse mold directly from a Sketchup model, but I can see a long learning curve before I get there. Thanks for your offer of future guidance, I will surely take you up on that!

Keep those build updates coming!
