- A VSH version is available for free to everyone, here![]
- "Why can't we have the original model?"
- The original model is not yet released. I messaged the SFM team about it and I haven't received a reply.
- "Will you guys release more character models in the future?"
- Yes. However there is no approximate release date for any of the potential models.

Note from Maxxy:

Before Jungle Inferno was released JPRAS already worked on a Saxton Hale model which was used in the Mayann short video.
I was planning on helping the release of the model, but not long after I started Valve revealed Saxton Hale in the Jungle Inferno short on October 20. The idea after that was to create an imitation of the model.

Before starting I've sent a mail to the Source Filmmaker team, asking if we could have the official model released by any chance, if not, would it interfere with a potential re-creation? Since I received no reply, I started working on the model based on the video.

All sorts of camera angles / changes were taken into consideration before I ended up with the current look. I think it generally captures the characteristics of Saxton Hale very much, same goes to the wildly expressive HWM face which I created with DMXEdit. It was a really fun process, but I was hoping to get a reply from the SFM team which could have anwsered some of my questions regarding custom assets created for their short films. ( It was promised that SFM gets more guides from Valve / Meet the Team sessions / Assets )

Please in this case if the team reads my note, send me a mail at:,
I would gladly discuss this matter further here and in the name of content creators.
I hope Saxton is going to help and inspire content creators for the upcoming Saxxy Awards 2017, good luck and enjoy the model!

The reason the SFM team never responded is because they probably don't exist or work on other projects often.

It's good to finally have a bloody official model for Saxton (well, when I say official, I mean that we get to see what he actually looks like in TF2 model style - even if that means that these wonderful people have to recreate it). Like with what they did with Miss Pauling.
