Default Help in Modeling a L Shaped Torch( The one used in Army)

Hi anyone out there can guide me on the steps on how to model this L Shaped torch? I am really a newbie to MAYA 8.0 and really dun have the interest in designiong and modelling. I really need help. I would like to use Polygonal Modeling using Cylinders and Pipes and what are the things i need to do? I also know that i need to assign a new material to the object before modeling.

Is this uni work? Or a paid project? Why does it have a time scale of the 2nd of Feb?

We can advise on how to approach it but no one here will really do your work for you if they do not get credit for it. That's called Plagiarism

I did this in 5 mins, basically take a cylinder, delete the top faces, select the top verts, rotate about 45 degrees, duplicate and rotate so the two 45 degree edges meet, combine and merge verts.

i don't understand when you say duplicate and rotate so the two 45 degree edges meet, combine and merge verts.

How to do it? Can explain clearer using MAYA?
