thanks a lot guys -

must admit I am a bit stuck on this at the moment and work is keeping me from maya, so I will see how it goes.

Really enjoying seeing some of the other entries though and it's good to see so many people taking part.

Hey Arran
This is looking interesting, you seem to be going on the theme of really fat stuff for you entries, Hippo, Buhdda, elephant, it's looking really cool though I like the idea of a seat on the top of it.

ha ha - no, i'm afraid i'm not hiding anything - I've just been having a hard time getting going on this. My idea was to have the elephant flanked by two hot air balloon / helicopter contraptions. However, I kind of got stuck into building my nurbs taxi and another nurbs project (nurbs!!:headbang, so i'm afraid this got pushed to one side.

Bah, you can still pull through arran; work on one thing at a time, so that even if you can't complete "the entire vision," you'll at least have a part of it done ^_^
