"Uncle" Milton Shupe has created a number of tutorials - emphasizing gmax and FS2004 modelling. A list is at:

http://www.aerodynamika.com/cgi-bin/yab ... 1162517377

The famous "Contact Points Tutorial" is applicable to any modeller...

Also, for FSDS users, Adam Howe has been creating an FS Design blog with useful "beginner type" tutorials. (Although basic, I've had a few 'aha' moments, as well.

Thanks for the HU Felix

The problem always being finding tutorials of this sort as so many assume you already know the basics

Whilst I remember, here are the first few I wrote for the 3D canvas modelling tool.
More will appear over the coming year before MS Train Sim 2 appears.

Hello fellow designers. :-)

Just wanted to update some tutorials links for those searching for some basic gmax help.

Maybe some of these basics will help get the creative juices going and get you over the "hump".
