Do you have a specific tutorial/book you are planning on working from, or are you going to try and wing it with what you know?

And you have used Lightwave? Was that as a hobby? what made you switch to maya? Is there much difference between lightwave and maya, or is it much the same things just called different names?

Thanks THX1138 for your comments
Ben I will look at some tutorials for the rigging and waight maps but I will wing the rest. Lightwave and maya are like calk and cheese, I can model a lot faster in lightwave then maya but that is were the problem is in lightwave the freedom you have comes at a price, that price being that what you have modeled does not look as good in lightwave as the same stuff in maya, I wish I could combine the best of the two that would be a sweet package.........dave

Very nice. Handle details seem very good, the screw needs a little more definition, but i think you already mentioned that.

Good stuff.
