Cannot view material on glb or obj

I must be doing something quite odd bc even though my material is “attached” to the glb or obj, I can’t “see” it on the model

e.g., I try to put the material in wireframe and it isn’t; so, what is it I don’t understand?

Are you sure you applying the material to the right mesh?

hm. not sure how to answer this question. how do I figure that out?

crap I think it has a billion sub-meshes; wondering if I can just be like “all yall use this material?”

also, is there a way to be at a submesh in the inspector and be given the path, like mesh.children[0].children[2] by clicking on the submesh in the inspector?

still have those questions, but also achieved a basically successful effect
