Ah, ok, thank you Chris for your answer. It looks like I'm going to
have to learn a bit of Moray then with the .mdl files. That's ok with me. As
a mesh modeller mainly using Wings, I just wanted to contribute *something*
around here in the future. Hopefully, it will be useful to someone. :)

Do you mean <for example> a self-made tutorial based on a Wings model,
and how it's used in 'my' way through PoV-Ray?
(Sorry if I'm sounding dumb here - long, long day).
