Ever want to make awesome 3D models like a pro but didn't have the right program? Google Sketchup is the answer. Popular, Free, Awesome, 3D, all words you like but are rarely used to describe one program, however they all are words that fit Sketchup perfectly. Once you are done with this tutorial you will be able to use the finished model in games, movies, comics, or animations. Unfortunately sketchup can only export as skp. files but you can get a converter that lets you convert it into more useful files. 

Step 1: Download

First you have to down load the program at:  http://sketchup.google.com/download/gsu.html

Simple enough, right?  
How did you create the Thompson?
