1) After you place verts in 1 view you need to use the 'move' tool and move them in another view.
2) The picture in the front is much bigger than the 1 in the right/left. Go to 'choose background picture' in the right/left view, and enlarge the picture.
3) Don't put so many polies. They don't make any difference and if keep this detail the whole model won't fit esf.
Besides, the skin makes it look better so you can spare verts that create a line. a line will always look like a line no matter how many verts it has.

Mhh, looks like you dont have much of an idea what to do lol...

I suggest reading a tutorial before you go on. I can tell you allot of things right now but its just useless. Read a tut or so lol.

Refs don't match up and too many vertices. Also, he is completely flat. If you looked at him in a game he'd be like paper thin. Don't forget to move your vertices in the other viewports. You can also take off more than half of those vertices >_>

Refs, DavidSkiwan,
Here I just made a video on making a small model, About three and a half minute's long, I suggest download it "right click and save target as.." then to watch streaming, becuase It will kill my bandwidth XD,
Yeah, So just, watch the vid, you'll notice what you're doing wrong right away..

that's becours you have to BEGIN with ms3d and when you get the hang of you use gmax to get better, i dont understand gmax at all also but i can atleast make some sweet models with ms3d.
