    I am having trouble opning any of the star wars models in peprica viewer. Every time I try it says "Cannot load file of specified type" dose anyone have these models in an alternate format or can help me with my problem?

    Assuming you have the latest version of Pepakura Viewer, you'll probably need to downgrade to Version 2.0 with most of the Star Wars models. My kit was created in Designer 2.0, and I don't think Viewer 3.0 reads those files. I could be wrong.

    That explains it. You need to download a program called WinRAR to open those kinds of files.
