If you are interested in creating your own 3d models you can start from some open source 3d software like wings3d.

Download them, install and try modeling something.
They usually come with docs.

3dbuzz.com is one of the best sites for 3d tutorials and 3d resources. The best way to get started 3d modeling is to just play around and get your hands dirty with some simple models. start simple with models of things like coke cans, bottles, glasses and then move onto the more difficult areas. Dont expect to just be able to start modeling characters straight away, this is a much more advanced area of modeling due to the level of detail required. Practice makes perfect.
