Bob,

Thank you, that works very well. I am wondering if it is possible to put an object in the place of the disk. I have a little turtle shape (the code below)that I had tried to substitute for the line " Disk[{Cos[a], Sin[a]}, 3/Max[8, n]]" which did not work out too well. My guess is that it would work if I would assign the {x,y} values of the semi disk that makes the shell to Cos[a],Sin[a] and then related the other parts of the shape to those coordinates, however before I undertook that endeavor I thought that I would just ask you to give me a yes/no answer as to whether it would even be a possibility. Again Thank You for your help.

Sincerely -- Clifton McInnis
