    As the title says, I'm looking for a quality model of Metal Gear Rex from the Konami game Metal Gear Solid.
    I do have the MD Rex that consists of 6 sheets and an instruction page that also has a "secret" Metal Gear included, but it's rather small and not well detailed.
    Any other MG Rex, especially in PDO format would be wonderful.
    Thanks for any help.

    I have a six page model from Keiji Matsumoto, not sure if it's the same version you have. The file is about 3MB zipped.


    I haven't put it together yet, so I'm not sure as of the quality of my version.

    That's exactly the one I have. Pretty good. I built mine from thin sheet styrene.
    If i can't get a good PDO of Rex, I wonder if it's possible to "trace" the current paper model we both have into a 3D program, improve on it and virtually fold it together....

    sure i will release it when its more complete. right now there are many things that are not accurate with this model and it will take some time to correct them because i do have alot on my plate at the moment.

    I think it's great, especially the low polygon count.
    Seems accurate enough, so I won't offer resources. What are you having issues with? I'm new to 3D modelling, but would be glad to assist you, even if only as a sounding board.

    its not that i am having issues with anything its just i dont have alot of time to fix it and adjust it. i just have alot of projects im doing all at once. it was a really quick model so its not 100% accurate but its a start.

    Can't wait to see the finished product. Please do take your time and put as much effort in it as you can when you've got some time on the side to attend to it.
    Half effort models really aren't worth making, even when it's something that you like.

    I like the saying from Will Smith;

    "If you're gonna give it 99%, you might as well give it 0%. It's 100% or nothing at all."

    Hey Zecks. Haven't heard anything from you in a while.
    Wondering how it's going with this.
    Would love to see it.
