tadpoles robot was a tutorial in 3dplace. if you want to make a "cool" robot i would suggest to that one. it is rather cool (i put a screenshot of it). i dont know if you actually make the flag and seleton. click here
to get to the tutorials menu. click on maya then scroll down till you find "The Dreadnought Tutorial for Maya - Beginner to Intermediate."
hope that is what your looking for. :nod:

glad your in the know 13th. but the second one is all my own work. OK!
the tutorial on 3d-palace is all good but i scrapped it cause it looks sooooo slow. I forgot to ask you to join in coldfire it's tonnes of fun but i suggest you don't do the same robot i did. I will post an update as soon as i cba to open maya again.
