    It can be done. The problem I face is extracting the meshes correctly. At least I think it is. The mesh data is in a format called W3D. That can be opened and converted by MAX with a plugin. Though I have yet to succesfully extract and convert a C&C mesh.

    Hang on, you're talking about C&C3, I'd assume the method is the same but I've only tried with Generals, Zero Hour and their mods.

    well the problem is that stupid 3d max. 3d max has a plugin to convert w3d files. i havnt been able to find another converter for w3d.

    C&C3 mammoth tank

    was 9 pages, i printed 6 pages to 1. an awsome model. the full sized one would be pretty impressive! each track section has its own page. i may revisit this one in full scale later.

    There's that giant coin again! LOL

    WOW! 6 pages to 1?! I think you are some kind of geneticly enhanced super builder! LOL Very nice buddy!

    If we didn't know of your skill at building in micro scale I'd have thought that our leg was being pulled. :) I'll be sending you an email shortly. ;)
