Default Open a Lightwave file in Maya 2011

Hi,

I found a file of a scifi vehicle on line. It was designed using Lightwave and I would like to see if it can be opened up in Maya. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Gary

Well you could use blender to convert it to a obj then import that into Maya, simple and you get to play with blender at the same time.
