    :cry:Okay, I dunno if this is the right place to ask or not, but the models I have in mind are all sci-fi models.

    I have Pepakura Designer 3. I have a model (Flarebaffled's Baneblade, for example). I have a skin. I can look at it and see how it would fit on the model.

    How do I apply the skin in Pepakura?

    Well, if you mean by apply to change the texture on the model by another one, not changing the texture mapping (which is not possible with Pepakura), you just need:

    1 - Go to menu "3DModelWindow\Set Texture"
    2 - At the window "Texture Configuration" which opens, click the buttom "Specify Tecture Image..." = browse ;)
    3 - Select the texture that you have, and you are done.
    4 - If you have more then one texture into the model, just select the texture that you want to replace, before clicking the buttom on step 2.

    Thanks Shiftdel! That's exactly what I needed to do. I have a copy of Flarbaffled's Baneblade (which he kindly sent as therapy while I was recuperating) and a new skin he made for it and I wanted to try it out.

    That helps TONS!
