Very impressive, especialy considering it's done in MS3d not max...

Star back ground still looks a little off to me, which is the down side for you using ms3d, max has it's own algorithums for making star maps using video post, but with the many many limitations of ms3d, it looks great.

Well, to do models, a cheap and easy way is to use Milkshape 3D. It only costs $25, and it is good. When compared to Max 3D(about $4000), it's much cheaper, and perfect for the hobbyist.
