Using 3-views and sections? I mean other type af aircraft (like de Bf109, Extra 300), not airliners.

    I'd insert the image, scale it, and trace over it for each of the fuselage bulkheads. (Start a new part, new sketch, Tools menu, Sketch tools, sketch picture). Extrude for form solids.
    Use the Move/Copy command (Insert menu, Features) to position them correctly.

    Thank you! In the meantime, I've done some models using the same technique you are using, more or less.
    Anyway, you are doing a great job with the tutorial. I could find only one tutorial like this on youtube (free) and it has some 20something parts. It's a IL-2 and the SW is set on Russian.
    Thanks again and keep up the good work !!!
