It isnt a simple thing making ships and stations.

First you need to get the program which you can use:

Milkshape 3D (trial for ** days then you have to pay) Gmax (free but you need to register to get a cd key) 3D Studio Max (its the advanced version of Gmax, which you will have to pay for)

Then you need to know how to create meshes (models) and then add textures

Then you will need to know how to create odf's for the ships or stations, and also know how to make it buildable, by ship / station

Then how to add build buttons and wireframes.

As i said it wouldnt be simple...

well milkshape 3d is only a trial then you must buy and Gmax is free but you can't export or import sod. format so its worthless
