A simple spider model made out of splines. It was rendered using Mental Ray with an example texture, and also without any textures. I've left out the textures for the downloadable version because I don't find my textures to be very good.
UPDATE 8/23/2012: After years, and several 3d models I will soon publish, I'm currently remaking this spider. It has a while left, but I thought it would be interesting to remake the first, full 3D model I have ever finished. I'll keep everyone posted; thanks for your support (even with only two published things from several years ago).
PS: It seems the original reviews and such have disappeared after re-publishing this model. Here are a few statistics from before:
