How do I even start this? What programs do I need? What do I need do to make a model? Appreciate the help.

A wise man once said,"When you reach the last page of a book, close the book."

In my opinion, the place to start is to download GMax from discreet.com. GMax is completely free. You can also download tutorials from there that will teach you the basics of modelling. One reason GMax is a good way to go is that if you learn to model in GMax, you pretty much know how to model in 3D Studio Max, which is a key tool in JKII modelling. Another route you could take is modelling in MilkShape, which costs $20 for the full version.

What I've been doing is learning GMax, figuring things out, and once I have a solid understanding of modelling, I will look into getting 3DSM.

Did I just read correctly when it said that 3ds max costs thirty five HUNDRED dollars? I missed a decimal point there somewhere, right? *looks really hopeful*

Lightwave has gone done in Price, plus there is an md3 importer/exporter for it.
