In Rhino I go to "View/Background Bitmap/Place" and I pick the blueprint and place it in one of the viewports.

Then I draw it up with curves, and place the top, side, front and back drawings in each of it owns layers.

I then rotate the prints so they "fit" in each of the viewports. No you just have to model the rest (The fun part).
