You need to export the model out of wings 3d etc in a format like .obj (wings3d does export obj files) that you can import straight into blender (file / import) or most other 3d software.

Did you seriously ask this question on a forum dedicated to Blender?

That is my current workflow Hotelsincarmel, I do all the modeling in Wings3D, export to OBJ and import the models in Blender. In Blender I do everything else, like unwrapping, 3d painting, shading, lighting, animating etc… I would recomend you to use the 2.5 beta since it’s more intuitive to use and peace of cake to animate anything.
