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?

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.
