This isn't exactly a tutorial or guide but just some snapshots I took while I was making a vxl to show how I would normally put one together. I thought it might help a few ppl & also explain how I can make them so quickly (this one took over three hours but I had a few breaks). The voxel I'm going to be making is of a Soviet Ilyushin Il-28 "Beagle" attack plane for D-day.

Here is a list of references I'll used while I'm making the vxl:
Wiki page
Air Vector

A list of the programs I'll be using:
Will's Voxel Editor
Photoshop 7

The first thing I would do is convert a diagram of the plane into voxel format to use as a template. This process is complicated so I wont go into details here & just skip to the finished product.

Next step is to create a grid of the fuselage using the template as a ruff guide. I use the pink colour BTW as it stands out more, so I can see what I'm doing. I wont apply the actual colours until the shape of the plane is done.

Using the grid I just full in the gaps in-between the grid…

Until the whole fuselage is done.
