I just went back to your original post, and to answer your question about how to take the plans and make a 3d model, would be similar to what I do with 3views. I trace the side view, and if there are any, all the station sections. I then move the sections to their correct places on the side view, and begin drawing lines between the segment nodes on the sections to build a skin. On the wing and tail surfaces, I trace outlines and airfoils and do the same. Making each piece a "group" prevents it from merging with other lines/surfaces and enables moving it around to make the model. I think there is some discussion on these techniques in the first thread.
