Sorry for the troubles. We use a feature that creates unique urls for logged in users, and that was failing.
Things should be all fine again though. Please check! You might want to clear caches or a cookie, or try another browser. Errors like this can be persistent for a while.

After revisiting the tutorial and doing some reading I found that I could get through most of the tutorial without too much trouble. I have to admit that this is a well put together tutorial and I appreciate the effort that went into its development. Quite the accomplishment considering the changing tools (Blender). Having said that, I have a new issue (new to me anyway). I cannot locate the character models that you are calling out here. It might be the different platform that is causing the problem (I'm using a MacBook Pro) or changes to the Team Fortress 2 game. I cannot locate correct SDK download and find the directories that are referred to here. Can someone give me concise and complete directions to gain access to these models, please? I'm sure that these instructions posted here will help others going through this tutorial.

You can download the SDK in Steam. Hover over your library in the steam menu and select tools. You will find Source SDK there.

@Hendrik Driesen: Thanks for the response. Unfortunately there was a reason that I asked for concise and complete directions as I have no idea where the library is or how to access it. I did notice a reference to adding stuff to a library after paying $5.00 which I didn't want to do as my designs are not going into Steam.
So, having said that, I have a FREE account in Steam and I am able to log in. I can see a menu but there are no "Library" selections to hover over. Wouldn't it have been a lot easier to just provide the model in the assets? Anyway, I hope there are some more details that someone can provide to someone who is not an avid Steam user.

Installed TF2, but there aren't any smd files. Any suggestions?
