Soldier Papercraft Download

I decided to revisit Team Fortress 2 for a 3D model I could turn into a papercraft template, remembering how well the Pyro turned out. This time it's the Soldier, the rocket slinging war addict and one of the few classes I got any good at during my time with the game. :p

TF2 continues to surprise me with Valve's commitment to updates and brave balance changes for something so well established and getting on in years. Valve don't seem to be in interested in making actual games anymore but it's nice they still care for some of their older hits.

This is a papercraft template which you can download and print to build your own version! By default he is RED, but BLU textures are provided should you wish to swap teams. Credit and thanks is given to the TF2 Texture Improvement Project for some high res body textures to replace some blurry originals: tf2tip.maxofs2d.net/ 

Included is the Rocket Launcher, a rocket and the shovel. There's a Stout Shako as a bonus hat because I have a soft spot for it, being the first hat I ever traded for when it was first released (at a ludicrous price I must add).

Additional info within the download file and on PDO/PDF #1. Any other questions, feel free to ask here.

Retrospective: Just a little bit of a rushed project in terms of my own build. Template's fine though!

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

It's a 37.7MB RAR file which contains PDFs and PDOs to print from or use as references. ~42cm tall, 25 pages and 195 pieces including the Rocket Launcher, extras and hats.

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: www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en…

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: 8/10 (Large pieces generally, some fine parts on the face)

Note: I sometimes reupload versions with minor edits so for website posters please link back to this page as a 'hub' instead or your download links could end up broken.


Happy building!

is there gonna be a version with an white background and fold lines? I'm new to this kind of thing, but i'm interested

Hi, in the downloadable file there's a set of PDF files with lines added. Or if you open the PDO files with Pepakura Viewer (free to download), the lines are on by default for reference purposes and you can use the "Set material to faces" button to turn the textures off, so you just have white pieces. (not sure why you'd want that though?)

Can you make Heavy next?! He's my favorite TF2 character!! OuO

How did you turn 3d models in to papercraft templates?
Avrin-ART's avatar
You take the 3D model and edit and simplify it so it has a shape that can be built out of paper, i.e. removing intersecting parts and unnecessary detail. Then using Pepakura Designer, unfold the model into a template.

That's a quick overview but it's easier said than done. ;)

Thanks for teling me! But saw the comment of the other guy ask you about this after i post this comment. But anyway. Thanks

This is best thing. Once I have this, BLU demo and medic, along with a RED scout, heavy and engineer, I will begin the process of building an entire robot army.

SO WICKED. Thank you so much. I second the making of Medic project (please and thank you!)

Stout shako for two refined !
Huemus's avatar
God damnit! Now I have to spend my time making this partner for my Pyro
Avrin-ART's avatar
In general, this one is a bit easier :)

Nice as always!

Happy New Year!

Thanks, and you too! :party:

excuse me for asking, what type of paper do you use to build this ?
thanks, sorry for bad english..
Avrin-ART's avatar
Hi, I used 160gsm (grams per square metre) matte paper for most of this model, with a small amount of 200gsm for the helmet.
zhizhen24's avatar
okay, thank you btw, last question, can i use less gsm paper ? like 108 gsm ?
Avrin-ART's avatar
108gsm would be ok for the head but everything else would either need something thicker, or a lot of extra reinforcement.
zhizhen24's avatar
okay, thank you bro!!

Woah, looks fantastic! Love Will you be designing a Doc papercraft too?
Avrin-ART's avatar
Thanks! A Medic could be a possibility, as these 3D models are much easier to work with.

(I don't know how I would do his glasses though. Wire?).
iloveportal1852's avatar
Since his glasses do have some thickness, I think it's still possible to make them out of paper. Wire would be hard to bend at that tiny size hmm 
Avrin-ART's avatar
It depends how thin parts of the frame would be. Even with thick paper they could become very flimsy. It's something to look into anyhow :)
iloveportal1852's avatar
Definitely! But in that case, a few coats of white glue might help to strengthen it while maintaining the colour. Anyhow, congrats on the Soldier model! Clap :happybounce: 

Also, just wondering, but have you seen the movie V for Vendetta?
Avrin-ART's avatar
Thank you! And no I haven't- it's one of those films I've never gotten around to seeing...
