Ok. Start with a circle as the base of your cone. Use the push/pull tool to extrude the circle into a cylinder. Use the scale tool to scale down the top of the cylinder. Continue to extrude/scale until the ends are rounded. (If you want the ends perfectly rounded, then use the follow me tool using a semicircle)

I made this glider a while back for a class assignment. It's not supposed to be any particular model, just a general sailplane.
Great design, but the wing are not long enough.
74' wingspan, 48' fuselage. But as I said, it's not a model of an actual sailplane, nor is it supposed to be a flying model. It was an entertaining beginner's SketchUp project.
I was Joking about the wingspan. :D
Oh, and downloadable here.
How long it take you to get to that level of skill?
About two hours...I played around with it for a bit beforehand, and made a chair from their tutorial online. Most of the extra skills that were required to make that glider I taught myself in the process.

Sounds like what I did when I first got it! I played around with it and made really dumb models, and doing that helped me gain a little bit of skills. It's easier to learn than Blender or 3D Studio Max... There's even a Google SketchUp for Dummies book! I checked it out at my local library recently, and I was amazed about what I didn't know how to do before! I need to post an instructable (soon) that explains the tools, how to use them in models, and make something cool...I'll work on that.
Sweet! There is hope for me yet...
