Very nice tutorial and a nice introduction to "biological" modeling in general.

I've used Lightwave in the past but switched to Blender recently but the tutorial is still useful, since the same basic tools are available in Blender.. all you need to do is add a "Subsurf" modifier to a cube, find the corresponding tools/shortcuts and have at it. :-D
