Creating a model with primitives and nulls

The process of creating models in CINEMA 4D can be incredibly complex or amazingly simple. It really depends on the type of object and how much detail or realism that you're going for. Normally, I'd be starting this process with a sketch, but I'm actually starting off with the finished model, because I want you all to understand and see the type of hierarchy we're going to be building. I think it's going to be easier to understand where we're going for if you can see the objects themselves. So what I've got here is a very simple flying saucer and I've got two null objects as parents: one that's at the ground level and one that's in the center of gravity of the saucer.

And then I've got something called an Array Object for the legs; and then I've got the antenna, which is sticking out at the top; and then I've got the cockpit, which is a sphere and another object underneath it; and I've got the body. And when I twirl open ...
