I think they're all good so far. The one i started off with was The Oliphant Model. I learned a lot from it starting at zero experience.

I also got the Ferarri DVD which I thought is also really good.
None of these are hard if you follow the tutorial step by step. They talk you through it as they're working and gives us some good tips. It takes a log of time of course, but it's well worth the time to practice.

I am also using the ferari tutorial.
But instead of a ferari i am trying to make a tuned mazda MX3. And the good thing is thiss tutorial alows me to make my own model. also tryed the free tutorial for making the dog. Wel i made a cute dragon. not because i failed making a dog offcourse . Hope you find what you need here and i wish you many luck.

If you are new to Maya I would try and get all the free ones just to get you use to the interface and the basics of doing modelling and the like before you spend money on some of the advance things.

Just my suggestion.

That sounds cool, don't forget to post your Work in Progress in the section so we can have a look and see how you doing.
