    Okay, the TX130 Saber-class fighter tank is ready, download from either my mediafire page or from paper modelers.

    Main torso part completed.

    I must say, converting this to paper turned out more difficult than what I expected. There are a lot of gaps, hidden faces, over lapping parts etc. etc that needed fixing.

    I think the hardest part is over now. The legs should be pretty easy to finish up, then I can start the unfolding.

    Indeed.

    Anyway, here is the Imperial skin for the TX-130. Just apply it in Pepakura. I have uploaded it to my mediafire page.

    Almost done, just need to do the unfolding work.

    I am curious, I scaled both the AT-PT and AT-XT to 25cm.

    Any one know what the real life height of these should be. Just in case some one wants to have it scaled properly since I only scale it to the point that small parts are still build able for most paper model builders.

    Ripped from the game, internet, Sketchup Warehouse, every where, I keep searching and digging ......... lol.

    My next dig up , and I hope it turns positive, are models from the game Front Mission Evolved :)

    I already have the models in Valve Source format, so I am trying to convert it to something usable such as OBJ or 3DS. From there on out it is going to be Wanzers galore :)

    I have followed a couple of tutorials but I just cant seem to get it to work, if any one knows how to convert them please give me a hand.
