  1. HI yes I did start with Panda troopers template and went from there. How I Printed it out was a matter of trail and error (more error & very trying )Basically down loaded the template converted it to PDF file then if memory service me right through reducing print size until I got the correct size on a series of A4 sheets. This was achieved by using a tape measure & the measurements that a on template. Hint start with a section will easily fit on A4 By noting the measurement on the template for that section adjust Print size til the reduction equates to actual measurement on the paper (remember/ write down that reduction percentage) and apply to the rest of the template . You will have to have some over lap to line up. This will take time and patience. The cut and paste(sticky tape) sections together to give you the butt & breach component and same for the mag plate & rear sight base I hope this is some help. PS I've transferred my paper template to Styrene so never have to do that again
