Hi Messyhead, I took a look in LightWave at your Mi-28 needles file. I see a slightly different model for every needle. Can't we do it with one needle model copied and renamed 20 times, then inserted into the scene file? I can handle the start position and movement with one equation, resulting in one simple rotation command. A little easier than altering the model for every gauge. And how do you place the needles into the scene file in the correct spot? It seems to me that would take either a lot of trial and error, or some way to insert the textured cockpit in as a reference.
