Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could give me a bit of advise. Im very new to 3d modeling and SW.
What I am trying to do is make a 3d model of my game character with my server name on the front.
I have a rough model made out which I have attached (This is not a finale model its just so I have an idea) I am modeling it in 3ds max 2010. I have modified it with the shell mode to hopefully make it hollow. The problem I am having is that it is going to cost over $200 for a 16-18cm statue.
Does anyone have any tips to making this cheaper?

the ground plane is quite big, you could could make it smaller to reduce costs.

I think that you should export this model to obj format, to get quicker help, or get link to some images.
