Construction of the Body (1)

First we have to define the dimensions of the elements of the body. See the following image:

 Dimensions of the body.
 ```#local R1 = 2.00; // radius of the body outside Radius #local R2 = 1.25; // radius nose top y Radius_Nose_TopY #local R3 = 4.00; // length nose Length_Nose #local R4 = 2.50; // length forehead part Length_Forehead #local R5 = 9.50; // length of tail part Length_Tail //-------------------------------------------------------------------```

Then we define a macro for the shape of the body using csg:

 ```//-------------------------------------------------------------------- #macro Body(Radius, Radius_Nose_TopY, Length_Nose, Length_Forehead, Length_Tail) union{ intersection{ // nose lower part (1) sphere { <0,0,0>,1 scale } box { <0,-1,-1>,<1,0,1> scale } }// -------------- end of intersection intersection{ // nose - forehead part (2) sphere { <0,0,0>,1 scale < Length_Forehead, Radius, Radius>} box { <0,0,-1>,<1,1,1> scale < Length_Forehead, Radius, Radius>} }// -------------- end of intersection intersection{ // nose front upper part (3) sphere { <0,0,0>,1 scale } box { <0,0,-1>,<1,1,1> scale } }// -------------- end of intersection intersection { // the tail of the airplane (4) sphere { <0,0,0>,1 scale < Length_Tail, Radius, Radius> } box { <-1,-1,-1>,<0,1,1> scale < Length_Tail, Radius, Radius>} }// -------------- end of intersection }// end of union #end // ---------------------------------- end of macro "Body( ... )"```
