Templates Store

(this is what A template looks like)

Welcome to the Templates Store.

Here you can download and buy the templates I use to create my paper models.

There are two types of templates: free templates, which you can download in PDF or JPG format, and paid templates, which you can buy using paypal. The models are not sent automatically after the payment, I sent them myself using wetransfer.com. You will receive an email with a link to download the model usually within 12 hours.  

The models are intended for personal use only, reproduction or distribution on the internet is not allowed.

Click 'view' to see more images of the model, read about the model, or watch a video tutorial. Any questions?  At the page FAQ you will find more information about printing, assembling and presenting the models. For other questions you can always contact me.
