Speed Modelling is all about the learning experience, so have fun try something new. Usually its a small quick project 1-3 Hours. Set a timeframe from the beginning and try to stick to it.

Use whatever tools you like, and then post:
- a wireframe image (optional)
- a clay render (if you didn't finish in time)
- a final render (if you are awesome)

Constructive specific Critique is encouraged - (one positive one negative and an optional wish)

I hope you enjoy the theme!

I made the Airbus A320-200, was a good practise following blueprints cause I need more mileage with that.
I wrote on my blog hoping that Blender will update with Ngons support soon, some parts are just unnecessary complicated when you can't divide one polygon. So the nose became a bit shady on this one, no good excuse I know but I usually look forward to the practise more than the result.... :)
