You need to insert an image plane... its quite simple and only takes a few clicks.

-First make sure your reference images are all to scale.

-Then in the corresponding view (so side image go to the right view) go to View > Image Plane > Import Image

-Then move the image plane so they are all level and then push them out so they arn't in the way in your perspective view.

-If you want them completely removed from the perspective view select the image plane and then under the image plane attributes change the Display to Looking Through Camera.


Hope that helps!

In later versions of Maya the modelling menu set was split into two menues, Polygons for polygon modelling and Surfaces for nurbs modeling .
