I uploaded this once before but thanks to DaedalJS I have learned another great bit of information. I have reduced the size of the original upload which was 22 MB to one that is considerably, rediculously smaller (1 MB). I appreciate DaedaIJS's insights and help. Please feel free to use this blend. I can't use it for my novel so it's out there for anyone to use. The cross is in cycles which I must say once more is super incredible, I love cycles rendering and using my GPU as opposed to CPU has made all the difference. Thanks to everyone on this site for being helpful and generous. Hope to someday be able to return to favour and help out new comers to Blender.
