Animating Weapons in 3D Studio Max

Coming back from the dead, I’ve worked on numerous different things – One of those featuring Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2010.

Inspired by the professionals on animating and modeling I’ve seen on skins on FPSBanana, I’ve decided to take on all of this 3D business myself. So far I believe my progress is not bad, but really I’m only just animating, and I haven’t started modeling yet. I started about three days ago from this post, so yes, I’m a very big noob and I’m new to all of this 3D thing. I plan on making Counter Strike Source skins in the near future, when I believe I’m pro enough.

My first weapon was so bad I’m not going to post it here, but here is my second one;

Second weapon scene (In-game view shown above) - Failed with animations

If anyone could show me exactly where to get awesome hand rigs/models of weapons (Modern Warfare 2/Call of Duty 4 in particular) other than on FPSBanana (because their models library is really a bit small and quite limited) then please tell me where. Is it possible to edit already made skins so that I can use the model for myself in my own animations?

I also made a scene of a Magpul Masada/Remington ACR;

Here's my ACR.

    so in other words im a hypocrite. STICK WITH THE 3DMAX UNLESS YOU HAVE UNSMELLY TAPE, LOTS OF CARDBOARD, A TABLE ( DONT DO IT LEANING OVER THE FLOOR, TRUST ME) AND DIMENSIONS (PLAN). sorry for the caps :D
