Sopwith Pup (Sopwith Scout) WIP

It is unpredictable me again!

I've spent the best of yesterday trying to decide whether to read one of the 6 books I've borrowed from the library or watch IPL on TV or do some 3D stuff on the computer.Which resulted with trying to do all these and doing nothing!

I've dumped both rigging and texturing and started modelling a WW1 Fighter Plane !

As the title says it is a Sopwith Pup and tutorial for this is from Area too.
It is a fully detailed tutorial and I'm going to try my best to go along it and finish modelling the aircraft. But the amount of detail in it keeps me wondering whether I'll be able to finish it.(I'm not sure whether my computer can handle it)
I'm still on the step two of the engine.
But thought it would be good to post a WIP (Work in Progress) picture and a post here before going to sleep.
Here it is!

The problem with these detailed modelling using tutorials is you read and model stuff but when you come to the end of the step you haven't got any clue what the part you added to the model just now!
At least that is the problem I have

I guess if you want to model a thing accurate (not 100%!) and want to be totally happy with your outcome you've to do lots of research on the object.Even if you are following a tutorial.

Sopwith Pup is a WW1 British single seater fighter aircraft.It is a bi-plane.
As the Wikipedia article I've linked says it is a production of Sopwith Aviation Company.
My favourite from WW1 is Sopwith Camel,which Squadron Leader Major James Bigglesworth (Biggles) flies in Capt. W.E. Jones's books.
