Argon Buster paper model

Post by the4ce » Mon, 8. Sep 08, 19:17

I hope this is the right forum...

Since I started to play X, (X2 and X3) I wanted to have a model of one of the ships. After some years I found(accidentally) a software(Pepakura Designer) that you could make paper models from 3D files...after asking some questions on the forum I learned how to extract the models from X3: Reunion.

I have edited the model a bit to make it a little easyer to build and then I put it in the software to unfold it.

Here are some pictures with the build model:


This is the result after months of work. I haven't try to make it perfect(I am sad of this now :().

I will upload the model if the moderator's have nothing against

EDIT: The model has been approved. Here you can download it: X-Universe News

What is this program of which you speak?

What kind of paper did you use?

Oh, and this might belong in the Creative Forum, but I believe it is awesome enough to be placed here, as well. :D

Admitting you have a problem is the first step in figuring out how to make it worse.

Its awsome!

Did it take you months to assemble it? Or how long did it take you to assemble it once printed?

Thank you! The software I used is Pepakura Designer...And it took me about 3 months to assemble and 1 week to design it. :D

Wow! Just wow! Permission has been granted by the man himself (Bernd) for you to upload the model. Egosoft is also willing to host the files if you like, with due credit to you of course.

Holy crap.

The patience... that looks so damn fiddly, I think I'd just end up breaking it.

I think this thread has filled its quota for superlatives, so let me just say this: It's alright.

I'm almost ashamed to say that words fail me. What a stellar example of dedication to your task, and a fantastic result.

Simply a great effort.
