When i joined the Blender team i had not heard about the Blender software. I have worked in 3ds Max, Maya, 2D softwares etc. I took a month to learn blender and i found it to be similar to maya . Sonometer was the first model i created in blender and also did UV unwrapping for the first time.
During the process i had problem with the hollow circle then my colleague Nitin helped me out by showing me an other alternative way. Took me 2 weeks to complete it and was happy with the results.
Below i have posted the images on how i did it.
