X wing style by me

 I tried to recreate x wing rebelion spaceship with vectary without image references by remembering.By the way I already have created original x-wing t-65 3d model with blender3d.This is not the same and way from accurate,but I think it looks pretty nice.I hope so you will like it : )

    Thanks Andy for your tips and tricks,I will try it in my spare time.As I learned blender3d shortcuts by writing commands on paper,so I did last night the same and wrote vectary shortcuts.This CUT tip will be huge saver for my 3d modelling workflow,as well other tips of yours.Thanks again for your tips : )

    Nikola, here are some answers and tips: loop selection shortcut - "shift+L" (try twice as it loops in two directions) extrude straight hold "shift+direction_gizmo_arrow" (this extrudes in global direction) switch between global and local gizmo (normals) shortcut "W" you can also click on the center of the gizmo a menu pops out where you can switch directions. the cut tool works either on the whole object or only on a selection, so if you have selected a group of faces (yellow) only those will be cut loop cut in vectary is the "slide tool" shortcut "N" so when you have a loop selection on a line you can slide one or more copies to the side and the original line stays in its place. the "TAB" key cycles from view to view

    By the way I written on paper some shortcuts I found on Vectary website and I found useful shortcut for chaning views it is TAB button.I found by accident a shortuct hack,when you press on face or edge and then press next edge by holding CTRL button it will select all in loop edges or faces.I hope so it will useful for your workflow.

    Thank you for your nice feedbacks about my work.I didn't modeled all the time in Vectary.First day I made fuselage with wings,then yesterday I decided to add engines and to bevel some edges.Ok I use Blender3d for almost 8-10 years,so I know all the shortcuts,and I can create my 3d models pretty fast.Vectary brakes my routine and procrastination and it's kind a mix of sub-D modeling and cad in some areas for me.Which is fun and intuitive,because I'm using moi3d cad paid software for my cad models,simple but powerful interface like Vectary for sub-D modelling.I like also simple Vectary interface,so I learned my 13 years old nephew how to model a Santa,pretty quick for one day.Now in Vectary I don't know all the shortcuts,also there are trials and errors,when I don't see did I selected all the edges or not.Then when I try to extrude some faces,normals dictates where face,edges will go,and I don't know how to extrude it straight by x,y or z axis,how to bypass the normal extruding command.Instead of cut tool in Vectary which cuts everything with it's line it would be nice to have loop cut tool like in blender3d,that would be very helpful for me in Vectary.I use keyboard shortcuts in blender3d for all the views,so it gives me more speed,maybe there are shortcuts for that in Vectary,but I didn't checked it out.Yes sometimes is annoying me,when I mix up shortcuts from blender3d with vectary shortcuts.Also sometimes I got stuck in browser,when I can't click on anything,except to try with shortcuts.If you have any advice with this last issue,please give me some advice.I hope so I gave you the answer Andy Klement : )

    Let me ask for educational purposes how did it take to create this model in vectary and if you could compare it to blender-time what were the advantages and disadvantages, thank you for your time.
