I no longer use Lightwave so this is from memory...

To use the pic as a reference - select keyboard 'd' > select Backdrop tab
The viewport will be probably the BR (Bottom Right) so select it and in the Image button drop down locate the image file.
How to go about modeling - that comes with practice - but for starters lay out a few primitives etc first and go from there (a disc for the barrel etc).
