Someone really needs to say this: You sir, are awesome.

I also really need to fix the stupid template in this forum >.<

Edit: template is fixed. Sorry for the trouble.

I scaled it so that it has the same overall length and diameter as an AIM-9 Sidewinder. The "hook" part probably make it look bigger than it is though.

Please, I had the @#$%ing thing working for a min, then I changed a few words on the description part and it is broken again.

For those who has problems, here's the DL link again:

Fixed. There was a space after the link, so that broke the template.

Excellent mod, you made me smile!

(It'll be easier to explain if you also look at the raw mesh I attached)

http://www.mediafire.com/?71dbqd4nw0mq1pv

Basically it is a many-segmented cylinder. Then I cut across the diagonals of the faces to create the "twirl" pattern.

To do the base shape of the hook, I take the cross section of the main cylinder body, and plotted a couple of extra vertices off set to a side as a rotational axis, and created a rotational shape (*) around the axis with the circle, which gives me a torus shape. Delete the half of the torus and I get the semi-circle hook.

(*) I apologize if it sounded a little confusing to you. I don't use blender so I don't know how to put it in blender terms. In GepolyO that is called "Solid of Revolution" operation.

No worries, I understand blender, 3d max and the gepolyx set of tools. Thanks for clarifying, much appreciated!
