half-life II .mdl spawner/converter for linux?

HI I’ve been looking all over the internet, and can’t seem to find a half-life 2 model “.mdl” spawner/converter, much less find one that works on linux or welly under wine…

any knowledge of programs that can translate .mdl’s (and all the supporting files) to say a “.3DS” would be well appreciated… even if it is a windows program I could try to emulate it with wine… but I’d perfer a linux one if available.

edit; freeware only, or GPL ETC.

anyways, anyone (know of/ come accross) any programs to do this?

thanks before hand for replying.
