3DS Max dummy object invisible

Hey guys,

I'm working with a rigged dinosaur that has dummy objects as controllers, I did a lot of work altering the materials but now I've come to animate the dummy objects have disappeared. They are still visible in the select from scene box and when I select them from there they work as expected but I cannot see them in the viewport =S

Any ideas?

Thanks =)

Check the display tab up near the modifier panel and make sure you have Helpers unchecked.
