“Place the 3D cursor on the tip of the centre of the propeller in the top and front views (red and white circle in the image above). Then move the background image of the side view to align the tip of its propeller with the 3D cursor. This ensures that all 3D views are aligned in 3D space so when you start modelling objects it should align with the blueprints.”
The above is an excerpt from the Nieuport 11 tutorial.
I have accomplished 2 out of the 3, 3D cursor positions. The last, moving the side view background image is being difficult. If I do as stated in tutorial, the side view gets moved past the edge of window, cutting off tail of plane. I just cannot get the side view centered in window, with the 3D cursor at propellor nose. How do I get independant movement from cursor? or how can I fix it so I do not cut off tail.
Please, total noob, way out of my depth, but I am gonna learn this. Be kind. I have no formal education or background in 3D modeling.
