I am getting closer and I spent all the time by checking where my last 
problem is.
The boundingbox in red is drawn correctly, with its center at 0,0,0, so is 
the cow, but unfortunately the nose is too far to the right.
The same happens with the tank.
The second attached pic shows where the center of the cow lies. The axis are 
added to the picture, cows_center has the x axis facing the viewer and y 
axis poining to the right.

The cessna model works perfectly but many others don't. Is this a 
transformation problem? Does the model itself has a transformation, which 
translates the model away from the idealized boundingbox position? I am 
looking at the cow.osg file and cannot spot a translation.

Thanks for the help
