    Color me Numb! This looks great, I am a little fused as to how it is assembled I mean do you build sub sections and then skin it? I do not understand how that works. Any of the pros have tips on how to build? Do I add the skin via computer, or post assembly, or am I way off on this wall1 Would not be the first time! :wave:


    Thanks

    Looks like an excellent, if complicated, model!

    To apply the textures:

    1. Extract both zip files into one temporary folder.
    2. Open any of the pdo files with Pepakura Viewer. (e.g. Body_Parts1.pdo)
    3. Click Configuration, then Texture Configuration.
    4. Click on the first item on the Texture and Color Configuration list. This highlights it.
    5. Click on Specify Texture Image. The list of textures in the directory will pop up in an "Open file" dialogue box.
    6. Open the texture file with the same/similar name as the item you first clicked (e.g. "Body_1" = "Body_1_RED5.bmp"). This will apply the texture to the model.
    7. Do the same for the rest of the list.
    8. When the list is done, click "Close" to close the Texture Configuration dialogue.
    9. Repeat for all other parts.
    10. Print out and assemble.

    Wow, thanks for that. That's truly stunning! I do have a question though, I opened it in pepakura viewer and it didn't quite open up right. I also inclined to ask the same question as above, how do you lay the textures of the parts?

    (moved to Internet Finds)

    Awesome find there, that looks like a nice candidate for an upscale with even more detail added.

    The Texture List text file contains the listing of what textures to apply to which parts. Instead of Windows Notepad, you'll need to open it with MS Word, which will convert it to Japanese encoding so that it shows the text properly aligned.

    Looks like you can output either Red-5 or Red-2's color schemes. (IIRC, that's Luke's and Wedge's).

    OylPyslk, the password is not in the text doc.
    CJTK1701, that's what the instructions are for.

    Cheers!

    Oyl, you shouldn't need a password. Are you trying to open the PDO's with Pep Designer? You need to use Viewer buddy. :)
