    Now, I need a to add the panels, marks, etc. How I can do that?
    I have tried drawing curves over the surfaces but when I unroll the surfaces the curves don't develop with the surfaces. :cry:

    Any ideas? Sugestions?

    English isn't my native language so if I'm not clear tell me. I can try to explain myself in another way.

    Thanks to read.

    Just to add the "Intersect" command is quite handy. I recommend both of them.

    Well, you recognized the airplane. So I think the model is good.

    Thanks for the link to Nobi's blog. What really help to solve the problem were the pictures.

    I was doing more less what's nobi wrote. I was drawing in a layer the marks and panel lines. but When I projected the layer over the surfaces this goes in the wrong way.

    My mistake was to use the whole model. I was drawing in the layer and projecting the curves over the whole circular surfaces.

    If you see the Nobi's work he works over the half of the model. This is the correct way. I just split the model in half. Next I projected the curves and all is ok.

    I'm working now. I'm going to put some pictures to clarify when I'm back at home.

    Thanks for your help.
