Default Mech Modelling

Hey, I'm giving the mech tutorial a try.
I have the base of the foot completed:

Can anyone tell me how I can stop the green camera showing up in my view ports? Also, any critique, tips, advice are welcome
Cheers guys!

Hide selection = ctrl + H
Show last hidden = shift + H

I think anyway! But to be honest theres an easier way to hide stuff by type, as I'm guessing you wont want to see your cameras again for a bit. In your panels (ie. side / front / persp etc) look in the 'Show' menu - that'll make hiding and showing stuff nice and quick. Hide selection is probably better used for hiding stuff like geometry that's getting in the way or you dont need for a while.

Hope that helps mate.

Cheers Petrol!

Unfortunately I had a bit of a disaster when I converted the thing to SubDs... I didn't realise my vertices weren't snapping together when I merged them.... now I have to start over because there's too much to go back over :'(
Why me??!

To add to that, try to save in increments at sensible times. Don't just save over and over in the same file! Even naming them something really simple like Mech_01, Mech_02 etc can be a lifesaver.
