Once this is complete, you can start combing and linking up the peices..
Thats is a great way to do it, I learned by creating curves round the reference pic's and aligning them via the front and side viewprots then using the create poly tool with the snap to vert command then onto the append polygon tool, I do find that the box way of doin it is a lot faster!!
I think its horses for courses to be honest like you said!!
Great how theres so many ways to do stuff!
