Which version of MDLOps did you use to compile the model?
If it was 0.6, then that's your problem as it likes to screw up hilt models.
Try using 0.5 and you should see a better result.
Failing that, did you set the pivot point correctly?
Oh, and you're not supposed to hit reset xforms after you've linked it all up. After the link, you shouldn't touch the model again.
See if any of those suggestions do anything for you and then we'll see where we go from there. Good luck!
