Pyro Papercraft Download by XenonRay Pyro Papercraft Download by XenonRay

For the past two years the focus of my large papercrafts has been Mass Effect. But having done models of my favourite squad mates I needed to turn to something else.

So I learned how to extract models and textures from Team Fortress 2, a game that has entertained me massively from mid 2008 to early 2012. I don't play it much anymore but wanted to do a tribute to my main class, the enigmatic, shambling bag of crazy that is the Pyro!

This is a papercraft template which you can download and use to print and build your very own! There's even four different hats available! He's RED by default, but if you want a BLU one, then the textures are provided so you can swap them around (see notes in download pack).

Additional info within the download file and on PDO/PDF #1. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

-------Read Before Downloading-------

It's a 35.9MB RAR file which contains PDFs and PDOs to print from or use as references. ~40cm tall, 27 pages and 259 pieces including the flamethrower and all 4 hats.

You can open the RAR archive with software such as WinRAR, Alzip, 7Zip. Just search around! ;)

You can open the PDO files with Pepakura Viewer downloadable free here: www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en…

Please do use this as it's immensely helpful as a resource and will show you exactly where parts go. It doesn't work on Macs unfortunately though.

Difficulty: 8/10 (Large pieces, flamethrower is a chore)

Happy building!

amazing model, very well ripped and pleasant to build. i've made one for my friend several months ago, but now i'm actually thinking of making another one for myself (: i need to ask however - would it be possible for you to make other cosmetics ? i really wanted to make not only a pyro, but MY pyro - and he wears the white mask (Foster's Facade) and a Soot Suit. would you consider making those to choose from ?
even if you consider the model closed and you don't intend on making any more parts for it - great work, thank you so much for making it (:

Thank you for building, glad it turned out well. :D I always wonder how other people find them since after staring at the model during editing for many hours it kind of skews my perspective on how easy/difficult it might be to build.


I'm sorry but yes this model would be closed now, I don't think I could really commit to making more accessories for this guy.

ayo xenon. Like everyone else says, excellent work. However, I have some tf2 papercrafts I've been looking to make myself (mainly 1:1 replicas of a few weapons), so I was wondering if you could give a short little list of directions or something on how you actually got the texture files into papekura? I've been trying for months but it appears I'm no good at this. :P

Ahoy hoy! Oh it has been a while since I did this...err let's see- plenty of jumping through hoops to gets some useable files!

Pepakura can only use common image formats such as JPG/PNG/BMPs for the textures. To get the TF2 textures you need to install GCFScape and open the file in Program Files/Steam/SteamApps called "team fortress 2 materials.gcf". Here you can browse around for textures and such. Find the VTF files for what you want and extract them. Then use VTF Edit nemesis.thewavelength.net/inde… to convert them into a normal image format! Regular Pepakura only supports images up to 1024x1024 so you may have to downsize some. Hope that helps!
