So, what for saying is I created the model in reverse ? . . Bill you know you are absolutely right . . . I stated the box from the inside . . D'Uh! . .
See what happens when you take a few years off of LW . . I did some of the stretching technique you mentioned to fit the model to the map, but I didn't flip the poly's to align the image, I think that may be a bit excessive, true it would work, but can you imagine flipping an entire model like that OMG . . .
Here is a quickie render of this project, I got the maps sorted out, I think I need to resize some of them to fit. thanks for the help . .
