    So I decided to start my own thread for Pep files just like Feirfek to help out, I have been unfolding files for Feirfek for a while, these files will all be for free kind of a way for me to pay back to the RPF community, I will be building all diffrerent types not just Star Wars, these are the current files I am working on.
    I will start with something easier and work my way up

    Star Wars
    Sand Trooper Ammo Pouch

    I'm guessing you found the files for these 3D Models on the internet? I just know I've got the TIE Helmet file with the Air Hose Grebblies like the AT Helmet has, that I got from a buddy of mine from one of my old forums I used to belong to. That I can tell you now it will take a lot of Poly Reducing to get it to a pepakura stage, plus you see the red lines? Those are open edges. In pepakura when you're making the file that becomes a problem for you as well as the builder. My plan when I got the file from him was to have it done on a CNC Mill, sand it to smooth it and mold it but I never got around to it.

    thats the one thing I dont know how to do yet is to reduce the polygons

    I was also building your biker scout pep, but since I got my clone armor I completely stopped building it

    You can reduce the polys by using a program such as Metasequoia LE it's free and under Object>Reduce Polygons after you open your file in the program.

    Pepmaster when you reduce the polygon count what type of file do you save it as?

    With Metasequoia you can save the file as a .MQO which can still be opened with Pep Designer.
