Bowline in 3 strand rope- as a SketchUp model

Browsing the 3D Warehouse the other day, I found an incredible model TaffGoch posted - a bowline made entirely in SketchUp. This is a pretty impressive piece of modelling work, and complete instructions for modelling a knot are included. The first file shows how to model the shape of the knot, while the second one shows how to make a three stranded rope following the shape of the knot(see this thread from the SketchUp help group for more information).

So modelling of knots is possible in SketchUp- are there any volunteers for the rest of the six basic Scout Knots?
