Pepakura Backpack From Movieman's Pep File

As a little break from clay work till I get some more cash, I decided to have a first attempt at a Pepakura (i believe) P1 backpack from Movieman's Pep files. This was about 15 hours work over about 2 weeks sat watching tv. There aren't any during photos as my fingers were mostly stuck to paper or each other. There's a few kinks and warps in the paper, mostly due to poor folding and scoring, but I hope to fix some of these during strengthening and filling. Thanks for looking.

I've used A4 paper, I think about 130gms, though I can check that in work on Monday. In total I think 15 pages. Though as this is my first go, I didn't attempt to change any of the page layouts. It's time consuming and a bit fiddly so you need a lot of patience and i think much of the work is really going to be on the finish.

In September 2011 I finished this pepakura piece. This weekend, 7.5 years later I finally got it filled with expanding foam. Next step is to fibreglass tissue and resin the outside, add greeblies and paint it up after some tweaking to fit my general back profile. It's pretty sturdy and very lightweight so turned out ok. Only downside is all this time in a centrally heated house has caused some warping. I'm letting that go and not worrying about it.
