Hmmm .... the Hunter and Seahawk were drawn in AC3D, and the files are .ac.
At least, they were when I drew them.
I find AC3D a most satisfactory drawing program, although others disagree.
If you use Version 4.0 or newer, be aware that it uses a 'crease' token
which the current release of plib will not accept: you will need to remove
them. Plib-cvs accepts the 'crease' token, so we look forward to the next
release of plib.
