Re: Simple modeller

AC3D - very simple, easy to use. Not OpenSource, costs $40.

Blender - 'quirky' user interfact, some people *love* it, others
           (me included) find it to be so horrible as to be quite
           literally unusable.  This has *just* become OpenSource
           freeware.  Quite complex.

All of the others seem poorly designed or not well oriented to doing
just simple polygons.

!!!! WHAT?!?!

It's by far the simplest modeller I've ever encountered!

I suggest you try again with AC3D - it's simple enough that my 11 year old
kid picked it up in an hour or so and was building simple stuff such as
you suggest.
