    Nice tutorial. I learned to take the project in steps, because right now my helm looks deformed.

    On the topic of the metric system and why the U.S. is stuck on the current system. Well, who exactly is going to pay the money to shift all of the machines, the gas pumps, the packages, EVERYTHING, into metric? It will cost billions to do so and is not worth the time or effort. I know both the systems though, Metric is really a whole lot better, especually since it's used pretty much everywhere around the world.

    As well, U.S. schools are not up to standard I agree, but only the public schools, which are government run. The universities and colleges are all some of the best in the world and people come from all around to study in them. They are run on a for-profit basis in a free-market.

    what pepakura file did you use for the helmet? mines outdated and doesn't look as good. If you wouldn't mind giving it to me please I would very much appreciate it. also would card stock crease when it goes through a printer? JF140

    The Pepa Files can be found here.


    As for the Program its self, try a Google Search for Pepakura.

    I had the same problem, make sure you read all the stickies, thats where all the info is.

    Hope this helps.

    Nice tutorial! I found it very informative. My only problem with it was the funny music in the background (I kind of liked it) and more light was needed.
    Thanks for making it!

    noob question:is there any way to make the body pieces from plastic(r sumthin' strong?)?

    Pep with resin/glass will be plenty strong for our needs. You could use abs if you can form it (vac form). Of course sheet styrene would work also.

    Jesus christ! 5 hours later! Breaks much? Thanks for this uber awesome tut, but im still stumped on one thing. How do you know what glues to what? Do you cut on EVERY solid line?
  22. tlither

    tlither Well-Known Member

    Yes you do cut the solid lines. #1 gets glued to #1 and so on. Read ALL the stickies then PM the Q&A Team when you have questions.

    BTW - Jesus Christ had nothing to do with it. It was entirely you not reading the stickies or trying to learn anything.
