what program are you using and where can I grab hold of it?
3D Studio Max (3DS Max for short). It is expensive but I hear that you can get it free if you are a student. This is something I really enjoy so it was worth the money to me. I also use a free program called Google Sketchup for assembling different parts of my model, but you cant animate at all and texturing is a challenge. I used both to make this.
3ds Max - 3D Modeling, Animation, and Rendering Software - Autodesk
The file went corrupt and I have to start over!
