    Jul 7, 2010, 3:49 PM - M41A Rifle - Pepakura #1

    Hey guys,

    I wanna make a M41A gun, but I'm unsure which paper model I should use.

    I found two M41A models...one from Nintendude which is an unfolded PDO:

    M41A.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    and the other from Aliens Papercraft's website:

    http://aliens.humlak.cz/aliens/aliens_papirove_modely/aliens_models/pulse_rifle/m41-a.rar


    They both have their pros and cons: The Pepa file is very complex looking, however looks slightly more accurate. The latter model is simpler but on A4 paper and looks less accurate.

    Which one should I pick? Thanks in advance.

    Well the first one you are able to change the size and how you want to unfold.

    The other one are in a pdf file and you are not able to change the size (might be 1-1 but i don't know)
    And another thing about it is that you will be forced to print it with a colour texture, thus using expensive printers ink. Even if you wanna paint it yourself later on

    I would do the first one. but if i was able to take the texture away from the second one that would be my nr 1

    Yes, the number two is 1:1. I can redraw the pieces in Photoshop, and it comes with nice instructions too, so I'll use the latter one. Thanks.

    ".rar" files are an old archive file type similar to zip files. You need to download WinRAR or similar to open it up and extract the files
