damn! damn! damn! :D
as i started this project, i never thought that it will take quite three months to finish :faint:

but this whole work with re-coloring from blank sheets to a colored version was totally worth :dance:
This Gundam is just badass and to call this a SD (super deformed) version is definitely an understatement ;)

with over 400 sometimes really tiny and complicated pieces, i really can say it's nothing for beginners
you can see it in the building process gallery
and i have to say that too, i printed that thing on A3 ^^;

the model itself was really cool to build
all pieces fit quite perfect together
sadly, and that's the reason why the model hold the weapon only one time and in that way, the weapon it's not really designed for the model
or rather the hands not for the weapon
the hands are based on one piece which is fold to itself just to get the shape of a hand
so it's really unstable, think about that when you wanna build that model ;)

now then
to the point what you probably all waiting for
and to the sad part :worry:
because this time, it's a bit different
the original model as black&white version and a pdo as help file (where i made the screenshot from) is available here
but you need a password
i can't tell you the password here but think about "from where" you download the model, that's all i can say
then my recolored version
normally i ask the owner or designer if i can get the permission to share them ->public<-
but because there is no way for me to contact "panda" i'm not gonna do that
...
by the way
asking questions in a private messages is free here on dA :)
maybe you know what i mean ;)

i combined the photos this time because i noticed that there are many fakers and thiefs out there, specially in the gundam scene

but there is only one person, who has that brown desk under each model

me's :D


feel also free to write a critique
would make me happy :meow:

well, honestly, i don't know what i should write :confused:
maybe i didn't realized that i'm finally done with this model.

it takes a horrible long time to build and sometimes i was about to give up, but after more than two month (effective building time) i can share this pictures with you :)

Fazit:
the best decision was, to print the sheets on A3, because this model takes me to the limits and you should have a little bit more experience for this.
the most parts are quite easy, but some pieces are hard as hell.
you can see it in the "building process gallery"

specially the backpack was that part, that gives me more then one headache :D

but it was a challenge that I gladly accepted
because this model is really unique and definitely an eyecatcher in every shelf ore something else.

the guys from "Just Paper" did a great job on this and if they ever decide to create an other one, i would build it too ;)

and it goes on :)
man, this step took me really long this time
but it was worth, the result looks just sweet :dance:

as always you can see the pieces of the chest-hip combo

the chest itself
the front attachments
the shoulders
and the pipes of the hip
(i didn't add this pieces the last time, because there were already enough ;) )

this time i made no piece overview of the pieces because the chest itself is based on just six pieces
the interesting part here is how to combine the shoulders to the torso

on page L and you can see it in the 3d view
there are two cylinders in the chest as an inner structure
i had no clue how i should build that so i made it my own way

first i changed the tabs and glued the cylinder inside of the outer chest parts
then i made a tube what fits into this cylinder and combined them with the shoulder parts

sadly i can't tell you how big this tube should be, it's something what you have to test out :blushes:
also you have to look out that you get the right lenght, angle and stuff

the next photo shows an idea from a facebook friend
he suggested i should try to build a moving system for the chest-hip
it took me bit to figure out the right height and diameter of the tubes but it works very well
...
even there is no space for movements ^^;
i will explain later

but it's a good way if you wanna build an other SD Gundam to get a bit life into this static models :)

by the way, the bigger tube has to be on the bottom (left piece)

the next photos
the "golden" front attachments
and the side pipes

the original pipes were just ugly to build
you can see it that the open sides sometime on top and some other are underneath

i used two paper stripes to combine them together
but i prefere if you are at this point, to draw youself some tabs
also i will edit the sheets a bit that you just have to add edge on edge

next problem
in the 3d model the pipes are going through the "containers"
but i can do this too ;)
i made some holes into them and just put them inside

p.s.
you should do this before you add the containers to the hip ;P

last picture
the final torso :aww:

p.s.s.
here you can see what i mean that it's actually not possible to move the chest
but that is no problem
the important thing is that i "could" do it if i want :D

oh yeah
my first SD Gundam :boogie:

two weeks of chilled work are done
and it looks really cool :)

i was a little bit worried, because the SD Gundams have a complete different model design as the pepakura models

but after a few parts i noticed how "genius" this design is.
the most parts are open and very easy to handle.

if you have three ore four cross tweezers you can build this very quick and get a page at one day done.

also the cool thing on this models are the model parts itself.
you can remove the head and arms, the wings, the weapon and the shield and pose them in an other way.

but the important thing is the instruction
i downloaded a few other SD models but they have none
so you have to figure out which part must be connected with the others

this one comes with a very nice and detailed one, so you will have no problems and it's also a good start into the SD series :)

if you wanna try Rocky (nickname of the model) on your own
feel free and download it here [link]

P.S.
you need the backpack page 3, three times

-edit-
by the way
a big hug :hug: to :iconelengwat: Elengwat for the idea with the border :w00t:

-edit-
lol, just crazy :D
as i went online, i found a note from :iconepill: epill in my inbox about the gundam and that i don't should get mad

well, mad yes, but in a good way ;)
he made a vector picture out the photo which is just awesome.

but take a look on your own.



thx a lot man, i really appreciate that :hug:

after one year of papercraft
my tool collection growed a bit
meanwhile i got a lot more stuff and i wanna share it with you

bottom, from left to right:
-a normal cutter for rougher steps
-a precise cutter for fine steps
-my good old freaking sharp scissor from the drug store :D
-a flat tweezer to fold bigger edges and taps
-a thin tweezer to fold fine edges and taps, also to remove the glue
-the tweezer what i used the most time to press the taps together, very efficient because of the angle and the flat ending

-steel cords to put small amounts of glue on the taps, meanwhile i have two of them, a long and a short one, i found this pieces on the street, these things normally are from the bristle of a street cleaning machine
sometime they broke and lay on the street
i cleaned and polished them that the glue don't stick

top, from left to right
-some chains, i used them to get some weight into the models that they stand on there own
-yes, Allen keys, i use them as weight and to reach some places inside of a model
-some cross tweezers, very handy, specially when you have to glue some rings ore don't have the modd ore/and time to hold the pieces
-some woodsticks, as contrast to the q-tips, much more better, because the glue stick and hold on them. they are also very usefull to get some distance for "flying parts" ore as a stabilization at the inside of a model
-two steel ruler, one long and one with some curves
-and at least a pencil :meow:

okey, let's take a look at the arms :)

again you can see here the pieces of the arms
- the arm itself
- the shoulder armor
- the booster and some attachments
- and the arm.... whatever this is called ^^;

pic1
these pieces were just ugly
even i did more then one look at the pdo i had no clue how to bend the edge
so i just cut it away ;P
and as you can see, this is actually one piece

in the piece overview you can see this little cut out on the right side
this joint was also something what took me a bit time to understand
also you can see the final booster and the wristband/armor thing
i allready finished the shoulder in the step before :)

and well, what should i say
the final piece
and the quite final model :)

and the next awesome model is done
:iconvictorydanceplz: :hooray: :icondweebdanceplz: :iconcarameldansenplz: :happybounce: :squee:

that's the reason why i just love this shit so much :D
and i just knew it would be cool :dance:

as i saw this model for, well, meanwhile also over a year ago ^^;
i just had to ask :iconsanat49: sanat49 for it
and i'm very thankfull and proud that he spend his original mesh for a papercraft project :huggle:
Crock by sanat49
the cool thing about this model is, that it's an entry for the pre-DominanceWar V competition, where i'm also a huge fan of :la:
what made this model, not the first Dominance War Papercraft, but the first downloadable (ironic hint to an other crafter ;P ) and hopefully definetly not my last ;)
...
but that's up to the 3d designer ;)


ok now, back to the model
the last steps, where you have to combine all parts will be exhausting
specially for the big shoulder armor pieces
there is not many space for glue or failures so be patience
test it out first where you can attach the pieces

also you have to put some weight into the rear leg or maybe both
maybe you noticed also that i attach the model a bit displaced at the pedestal
i had to do this because of the weight ratio
it's a lot testing and trying
so don't hurry ;)

file description:
the file contains as always three pdo files
one with texture and folding lines
one with texture and without folding lines
and one white version with folding lines

so you need the Pepakura Viewer what you can get "here"

all three pdo's are not protected
so if you have the Designer, you can edit the sheets in the way you want :)

the original texture is NOT included

model description:
the model come on 27 pages with 290 pieces and is 30cm tall

the model is actually not hard but the mouth take a bit more work as i thought
also the first three rings of the arms
the skulls and bones of the pedestal are very small but it's up to you if you wanna build them
i removed the lower site of the pedestal, it is too big for one page
but just glue the whole thing at a blank sheet and you have the same effect ;)

difficult level is about 7/10
if you have any trouble, feel free to ask me or/and take a look at the "building process gallery" where i explain how this and that is working :)

to download the model
click on the download button on the right side
you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore


some words to the bloggers




because this is a collab, you have to give credits to :iconsanat49: sanat49 too!
otherwise i can't allow it to write a blog entry

you have the permission to use my photos
you DON'T have the permission to use his renders ore screenshot of it
except he allow it

this model is a Deviantart only download
so do not upload this model somewhere else
and the most important thing

this model is free and should it be
so let it be!





and trust me, i search for my stuff ;)

feel also free to write a critique :)

Finally finished this Gundam! can't believe I started with this project last year! haha, anyway, I've introduced the "Background colour" to this model because there were some annoying white pieces over the model which would look better with it.
Also included the possibility to build Open and/or Closed wings!
Test build was made by :iconairasumi: as well as the photographs!
The .rar contains: 9 PDOs, 9 PDFs as well, 21 Pages for the model (If you build only 1 pair of wings)
