It's written there on the top of the page with links:
"Files are compressed in .7z, if you cant decompress them try 7-Zip. Inside you will find .pdo files you will need Pepakura Viewer to open them."

For the arms, could you please explain where the grey peaces go?

Those are internal reinforcement parts for the legs.

Don't ask me why is it in the arms file.

Have I misspelled it somewhere? .. no it should be right ... hmm I don't see what your question is ... if there is one.
(English is not my native language so probably that's why I dont get it :) )

Leviathan is one of the major Hive Fleets in WH40k like Behemoth and Kraken, this colouring is for Leviathan (Behemoth being red/blue and Kraken being bone/red instead of this white/purple)

I see what you mean - but I know Leviathan. And this isn´t meant to look like a swarmlord going out for a club/disco taking drugs. Oo
Not enough..he looks like you painted him with luminous paint Oo

Just google it, this hive fleet colours you painted is definetly NOT leviathan.

Ahh I see now.

Actually the printer painted it I just assembled but I take your point.

I used DoW2 model and base textures for making the template but DoW2 uses greyscale textures and shaders to color it. I'm by no means a pro at image manipulation so yeah I guess the colors are off a bit, I also don't have painter class color sense (one of the reasons I don't paint my models)

So please interpret the (Hive Fleet Leviathan) as (Hive Fleet Leviathan*)  ... *It's intended to b.

im mounting this model too, but in photo paper glossy of 180 gm, i like the glossy finish. I love warhammer world and your tyranid model is awesome , can you work in a model of the carnifex?

Its a basic human shape with some extras, If I'd make something Eldar it would be one of their walkers like WarWalkers or WraithLorg/Guard. But i still dont intend to make anything 40k for a while, and I'd probably make a Tau Pathfinder with a Drone and rail rifle.

nice, one last question, you know any web with a good tutorial about pepakura designer?, i managed to extract the models with santos tools in dow2 but i dont know how  works pepakura.

:icondaishihun:
DaiShiHUN Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014
Nope sorry

When I first started using it I had some experience with UV unfolding and it was kind of a no-brainer from there.
If you can't find anything you can check out some Unfold3D tutorials to get the basic idea, but there's a chance it'll make you more confused, U3D is for UV  unfolding and while it has similar interface and workflow its not exactly like pepakura.

What kind of paper you use: photo or office?
Reply
:icondaishihun:
DaiShiHUN Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014
This one is made out of 180 gsm plain paper (office)

But some of my more recent ones are made 180 gsm matte photo paper. Its basically a choice between better edges vs better colors (for me). Plain paper does not have such vibrant colors no matter how you print (inkjet mind you), but the ink penetrates more deaply and its harder to damage it during assembly. With photo paper the ink remains in the upper layer and much easyer to scrape off, also the edges tend to fray more easily, so its much harder to work with and the edges are somwhat more visible but the colors are much better. If you check the 3rd pic of my ME model collection you can see that EDI is so vibrant it looks like she was photoshopped there, that's the only one that was printed on photo paper from that lot.

Naggyon jól néz ki! ;) Csak gratulálni tudok.
Az éleket még mindig ceruzával színezed le vagy más technikát használsz?
Jah és te hogy nyomtatod ki? Tintasugaras v lézeres módon?
Reply
:icondaishihun:
DaiShiHUN Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
Köszi!

Az éleket filctollal húzom ki, csak ha nagyon vilagosak a színek akkor használok ceruzát.

Tintasugaras, a lézer állandoan feltoredezik ha hajtod. ha megnézed a galeriámban van egy WIP-Normandy kép na az volt az első és utolsó alkalom h lézerrel nyomtattam template-et.

És te otthon nyomtatod tintasugarasan? Mert én nyomdába megyek és ott csak lézeresen nyomtatnak és nekem is jó lenne egy hely ahol tintasugaras módon nyomtatnak...

amúgy nekem a lézeressel sincs nagy bajom, ha 180 g/m2-re nyomtatok akkor hajlításnál se nagyon pattog le, csak az élekkel van nagy bajom, ha azokat sikerülne rendesen megcsinálni boldog lennék ;)

Én például jobban szeretem a lézerest mert valahogy a tintasugaras nekem túl mattnak/fakónak tűnik. És bár néha nehéz, azért el lehet kerülni, hogy lepattogjon a festék, vagy ha nem akkor is el lehet tüntetni a nyomait.
[link] ezt is pl lézeressel nyomattam és szerintem nem lett rossz.

Yes It actually turned out better than I anticipated, if the leg braces hold up ill try to use the same technique on my Frost Dragon Mk2 ...when I get around to build it ofc.
