Help 3D modeling

Hello everyone, this is something that has been haunting me for 8 years. Look at the model of the plane. How did they do this?

 

I have tried revolve 180 that didn't work. It appears that it is two halfs and the wings and tail fins were added later then join.

Hi,

 

>> How did they do this?

Create sections and connect them with _LOFT (>>>details<<<), explode the object (one of the two halfs) and you see the segementing.

 

But that's just one of many possibilities?

Here is one way

or you can LOFT many sections of the airplane.

I only see one Revolve on the part.

Recognizing the various geometries needed to create a 3D model is a critical skill.
