AC3D could be a good tool at the beginning when you start with 3D
modelling. But it is limited. You will discover quickly functionalities
missing. Look at the A380 wings shape. you cannot do it with AC3D.
Blender will be very useful don't be fear to go into.It is well
structured. Look at the tutorial that is very helpful.
