There seems to be a little confusion for some people about the
difference between a mesh and a skin.
It's all very simple really. A mesh is similar to a wire frame
and a skin is the outer texture that wraps around it.
Think of it like papier-maché. You make a frame out of balloons
or wire, then wrap your paper around it.
Here we take a 3D "wireframe" and wrap a skin around
it. Maps (that you don't see) determine the way the skin goes around
