    So, I am having issues trying to figure out how to attach and show a model when I load a menu. I apparently can create the object, just cant seem to find the info to attach my model to it.

    The object I declared shows up in unity inspector and I can assign a model to it, but I never see it when I click play. And advice?

    Here is the small bit of code I have creating the object. Not sure if more is needed.

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. var baseCharacter : GameObject;
    3.  
    4. baseCharacter =  new GameObject ("baseCharacter");
    5. baseCharacter.transform.Translate(0,-231,-431);
    6. baseCharacter.transform.localScale += Vector3(100,100,100);
    7. baseCharacter.active = true;
    8.

    It looks like you haven't "instantiate" your gameObject yet. That's why you can't see it.

    When I try to instantiate the object it just create a clone of the object it creates. Maybe I dont explain myself well :/

    When I start the game, an empty game object shows up under Hierarchy, but no model attached to it.
