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)

This is quite an amazing looking papercraft.  Out of curiosity, what did you use to weigh down the feet?  Also, do you resin your papercrafts or are they pretty solid without it?

Cheers, I usually put a mix of coins and Blu-Tack in their feet. If you are planning on building the Pyro, I'd recommend weighing and reinforcing the ankles much more than the instructions might suggest as he's very top heavy and the top of the boots presents an area of weakness.

I don't resin my models because at this scale, with thick enough paper they are sturdy. They can be crushed in with force obviously, but under their own weight they are quite strong. Lately I found PVA glue makes an acceptable varnish, but I've not been brave enough to coat one of my big models yet.

Very cool.  Thank you for your response.  I only ask about the resin because I plan on shipping it to a friend of mine who loves the Pyro.  I wasn't sure if just the paper would hold up in shipping.  Coins sounds like a suitable anchor.  Do you just let them free in the shoe part or do you glue them down?

If shipping is the case, then I can see a completed flamethrower being easily damaged, even with padding etc because of its thin pipes. That would probably benefit from some hardening. :hmm:

The Blu-Tack (or any kind of putty) is used to hold the coins in place. I sometimes tape the coin(s) down too just to be sure.

Very awesome.  Thank you so much for all your help.  I'm just starting to get into all of this Papercrafting so there are a lot of things I don't know.  It's certainly fun, but I end up doing a lot of things wrong.  I was using super glue to try and graft the pieces together and it just bleeds really bad and doesn't stick for the life of me.  I may end up having to start over on the parts where I used superglue.
