Anyone want a new TDK Cowl file?
Modeled from scratch, not a game rip or existing file modification. It's still not perfect but I wasn't happy with any of the other TDK cowl files out there so I decided to make my own.
I originally modeled it for a cardstock/ fiberglass resin build, but then unfolded for a 3mm craft foam build, so the unfold is kind of somewhere in between. Feel free to re-unfold if needed. It's currently unfolded to 34 cm tall, about 13.4 inches.
You can do with this as you like, just please leave credit to me as the original modeler. I spent a lot of time on it and really don't like seeing when people do a tiny tweak to a model or unfold and then leave out credit to the creator.
I didn't get a chance to build it before releasing it, I realized I wouldn't have time to finish this build and the rest of the costume with Halloween so close. If there's any changes that are needed just let me know and I'll fix it.
**DISCLAIMER** I am an amateur hobbyist 3d modeler, so my work isn't perfect! I have a basic minimum working knowledge so I can model myself what I want for Pepakura work, nothing more!

And thanks to EyeofSauron here's a Foam unfold (A4):

I've also received permission from Pichet Paithoon to modify and release his 3d model for pepakura.
Here's what I'll be working with:
Still working on the batsuit, I had to start by removing the base body/ skin underneath everything. Next step will be to simplify the strapping that was modeled, I'd like to keep the straps included for sizing and spacing but right now every little rib and detail are modeled in there. After that I'll modify the armor parts for pepakura and/or foam.
I have two parts that I've already modified and unfolded. These have been edited for pepakura but unfolded for foam. These were scaled for myself so they'll have to be adjusted for each person, as I'm only 5'-5".
The Chest (This does not include the layered part that the emblem sits on, as that is a fairly simple piece to make from 3mm foam):

The Upper Shoulder (This is only the upper or top piece, I haven't worked on the second/ lower layer yet):
