    Well if you have the model, just drop it into your /models/ directory in TF2.

    You should check that A) You actually have an alpha layer before you converted your image to .vtf and that B) you added the "$translucent" "1" to your .vmt. Baring in mind, if i understand certain aspects of models referencing materials, that when applied to your model rather than a brush your .vmt will be over-ridden by the .qc (?) file.
