Tinkering: VII - Tonight I Hungout With Some Models

I'm finally at the point where I can get into modeling in Solidworks.

I ran into several road bumps through this modeling process.  For example, when it came to modeling the bottom plate of the shuttle body, every extrusion method I tried would not accomplish the contours and form that I desired.  What I ended up doing was constructing a 3D Sketch and then filling it with surfaces to resemble a solid.  Further tinkering with the loft and extrusion tools may reveal just what I need to create a truly solid part.
