Need help modeling a space shuttle

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4dEiQq18yj2MVhsUGJlSUhmTkE/edit?usp=sharing This is what I have so far. I'm using Wildfire 5.0. I'm having trouble blending the nose to the fuselage and designing the wings. Any input would be appreciated.

I would think a sweep-blend would do well for the cab section. Use the tangency options to blend the sections.

How about an extrude of the wings with a few tappering cuts and a 3-surface round?

A blend will probably be the best method! See this tutorial http://learningexchange.ptc.com/tutorial/1612/creating-blends-by-selecting-parallel-sections

Yes of course, Tim is right, a simple blend is sufficient. We just had a long discussion on that very thing.

How to create a nozzle removing material with variable section sweep?

Some very good tips on how to make this work for you, Richard.
