One interesting side note is that a Blender 2.62 user named Kbarter ported an old XSI exporter made for Blender 2.42. The original script exports a version 1 XSI model. My thanks to the both of you for taking the time to help out some weary BZII model makers. PS: Another user named Tsvetan also created an XSI exporter for GMAX/3DS as well. I mostly posted this additional information for wandering Battlezone 2 Combat Commander model and prop makers. Including Raxx's original XSI exporter there are now 3 different scripts depending on what software you happen to prefer. Visit my modleling forum to get a copy of any or all of them. Various XSI exporters for BZII by some very cool people.
My humble thanks to each and every one of you folks.
