Sorry to have neglected this blog for so long, I'm hopefully going to get back into the swing of things and carry on with some papercrafting. I have a half-finished medic model lurking around somewhere, but in the meantime, I realise that the original uploads of the spy, scout and sniper have been lost.
I've now put them on google drive, where they'll hopefully be safe and accessible for a while to come. Here are the links:

The sniper papercraft is finished!
I haven't done instructions, I probably should do. I'll let everyone have a go with the .pdo themselves and try to work on some instructions while I assemble it myself.
As with the Scout, I'm relatively confident it'll work. The gun might be very fiddly.
If you want to make the model bigger you can get Pepakura to work it out for you. Go to 2D Pattern Window --> Change the scale of development. You can change it by model size or percentage and still print on A4!
Papercrafter Ettrazi has sent me some great photos of the assembled Scout! I probably should have included some helpful instructions, but other than the misplaced dog tags all looks well!
(Hint, assemble the dog tags and slot over the neck before sticking the neck to the shoulders)

OK, I know it's been aaaages since I last posted, and I've in fact been sitting on the half-finished Scout papercraft for about a year now. But someone else has been making TF2 papercrafts too! Which got me really excited again to get this one out. I don't have a photo, and I haven't built all of it, but I'm pretty sure it's possible. So far I've built the legs and wait, left arm, bat and head. The head was pretty tricky, but possible.
If anyone builds this, please e-mail me so I can put a photo up! I know nobody likes unproven papercrafts.

OK, the Spy is finished and ready to build! Further down is a link to a rar file with instructions, sheets, finished pictures and the .PDO file. The instructions aren't perfect, so using the .PDO file will be pretty essential. If you do make this, please leave me a comment, I'd love to see!
Stay tuned, the Scout is coming next!

So my first project is to try to make the TF2 guys, as in this image (way to start off small).
I've been thinking about this for a while, and decided to use the low poly models made by Tom Tallian as a base for the crafts. I then posed the model, edited it to be buildable and re-textured it using Valve's TF2 textures (highly modified and chopped about). This means I get the simplicity of the low poly models with the detail of the official ones.
The spy has been built, albeit sloppily, and I am currently tidying up my files and putting together instructions.
The scout is currently in pepakura and I am a lot more confident this one will work, so I will most likely outsource the test building - if you would like to help, please leave me a comment!
