All I did was copy and paste to Paint and then printed

the first one was a homemade splinter cell conviction with goggles and knee pads, the other is the default one.

great 'ible. but wouldn't it be easier (and cheaper) to make a papercraft one instead?

Cheaper ? yes, I agree. But easier ? I'm not sure. It is easy to resize a picture and to upload it on a website. Moreover, the result is stronger and more accurate than a papercraft.
