My opinion/experience: It depens of what you want to do: for just some small or easy objects (low complexity) i recommend Sketchup over all other software (or try Blender if you already started and install that extension to push/pull style like sketchup to accelerate your 3d creation), for tweaks, post-editing and 3d revision i use AC3D sometimes, and texturing i like it too because is fast, although blender does the work for advanced texturing or complex objects. If you learn Sketchup you need the AC object exporter and take care of double sides, unseen faces, overall weight, etc.
Hope it helps :D
