Modeling Symmetrically

Hey everyone, just had a quick question I was hoping somebody could answer. I’m currently trying to model a Spitfire plane, however I’m having problems with getting it to mirror properly down the length of the plane. I want it to mirror as I model, doing to one side what I do to the other. I’ve tried all the online resources I could find, none of them seem to get the effect I want. One got close, mirroring a linked double over the Z axis, however this failed because when I moved one side forward, the other one moved backward…:eek:

Help would be greatly appreciated :spin:

The mirror modifier, a selection in the modifiers panel, does what you want to do.

Amazing, worked right away! Thank you so much Orinoco, strange that this wasn’t mentioned in any of the major manuals/tutorials I looked at… :no:
