Here's a quick timelapse video that I created to help one of the BlenderNewbies forum members working on a personal project of modeling a classic Bowden bicycle.
It's not perfect or complete and, there's no audio. It's just a quick demonstration of one way to approach modeling the main part of the framing. There are some errors, but I just left the "camera" rolling . The setup portion is in real-time and the actual modeling part is sped up to keep the video size reasonable. The entire process took about 25 minutes.
I'm sure I'll be posting more of these types of "over the shoulder" videos because I think there's opportunity for learning just by watching the process unfold.
