Usually I wouldn't post papercraft projects here but on my blog or Nintendo Papercraft instead. However this is clearly not Nintendo related and doesn't fit the theme of my blog either, so here it is on dA for a bit of promotion.

This is a papercraft template of Tali in her Mass Effect 2 appearance. Print the files and you can build your own version.

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

It's a 37MB RAR file which contains PDFs and PDOs to print from or use as references. 12 pages, 132 pieces (I think!) in total. She comes in 2 colour schemes and stands ~45cm tall.

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:…

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: 8.75/10 (Complex but not so bad with experience)

Tnx for sharing and for the excellent descriptions. It helped me alot through that first project. I wanted to make Legion first, but Daishihun recommended to do Tali first - which was wise ;).

And now I have already finished the model. :) 

Unfortunalty she doesn't stand alone :/
I seem to have done something wrong with the positioning of the legs. Guess it was the crotch: it seemed there wasn't enough space for the left leg so I ähhhh improvised...

What kind of printer do you use? Overall your colour looks better and without any damage.
I used a laserprinter and lose some colour here and there. Not while folding (I scratched the edges first) but sometimes when I had pressed the glued parts together.

And thank you for the compliments and for building! :D

Tali's legs are in a stepping position so it's not that stable by default. But yes joining legs together is always a difficult part, especially the way the front 'skirt' gets in the way. In, uh that whole area try to make sure the parts are carefully curved around so the tabs meet their specific edges as neatly as possible. I sometimes find the legs move apart when building, so I take a long strip of paper, fold it into a U shape and glue it inside the model, so it wraps tightly up one leg, up and over down into the other to hold them closer through tension of the paper.

Mine was printed on an Epsom P50 inkjet (back when it used to work :shrug:). My models have somewhat poor colours in real life, they look brighter here because of the camera flash. It wasn't until I got a Brother printer this year that I could get some nice saturation, but apart from my BioShock SMG and 3DS Sheik I don't have any big figures to demonstrate the difference with...yet. Anyway, yes laser printers can have issues with cracking or peeling ink, or toner rather. So really an inkjet is the best choice in the long term if you are going to take up the hobby. :)

Yep paper :), although about double the thickness of normal printer stuff, so the model's pretty sturdy!
