thanks for that tip. I've begun box modeling, can you elaborate on the benefits to converting over to sub-d's?

subD's are spline based, so they look almost as good as nurbs. other advantage, they retain UV's from low rez poly object, and u can use that same lorez object to use as an influence object. (i.e. wrap deformer)
and u don't have to heavy geometry, since the subDwill be from a low rez poly
