All the major steps are covered including the set up of image planes and the all the steps to create a fairly detailed aircraft model. There is no timelapse or cuts, its my modelling warts and all. By the end of the set you should have a good understanding on sub d modelling in XSI.

The set contains 14 lessons and you will need the TSSC codec to view the video's. The set i would say is suitable for beginners to sub d modelling but if you are completely new to modelling and XSI you might want to have a look at my beginners XSI set the Dreadnaught which is available here

I have taken the decision to put them on rapidshare for now as they will be available to everyone and you should get a reasonable download speed. I am aware that they only let you download so many megs an hour if you use the free service but a months downloads is only about £4 which lets you download them all in a oner if you wish. And hey the vids are free anyhow so its not such a bad deal eh ?

Anyway i hope they are of some use to somebody as i think tutorials for this type of modelling are a little thin on the greound for XSI and if you like them i might even add to the set some more details and the UV mapping and texturing.
