How to model hexagonal tower

I want to model a hexagonal tower in a state of construction but there are no hexagonal primitives in 3dsMax'

From the Shapes menu I've made a hexagon and changed it to an editable poly.

It is my plan to extrude the thing but I can't seem to find extrusion in the Modify Panel.

Please help if you can.

Thanks for your consideration,

It has been a long time since I last used Max, but I'm reasonably certain when you make a cylinder, you can give it any number of sides, including six.

There is an extrude modifier in the modifier list which can be applied to 2d splines and there is an extrude tool in the face sub-object toolset of editable poly in the command panel/graphite toolset.

I would recommend 'F1' maxhelp for extremely basic things like this.
