Arcbeetle from the anime Medabots turned into papercraft!
I know I should have uploaded this a few days ago, but I couldn't make a really fast build. Anyway, there aren't many difficult pieces, just maybe a difficulty with the balance, but it depends on what glue you use.
Hello again! It's been a while. Well, this is my version of the Medabot known as Rokusho. I made this because It was part of my childhood, and I saw the Metabee papercraft long ago, (I think the designer should be more known). Anyhow, I just couldn't resist making it.
It's taken me a while, but Rokusho's finally finished! Many, many thanks to StormL for the template.
I regret that I used regular printer paper for the model and that I didn't think of adding weights to the feet to help it stand better. No Medabot deserves the fate of a flimsy body that has trouble fighting against gravity.
Maybe now, I'll finally get around to continuing my Medabots fanfiction...
I was amazed that I was able to build this. I used nearly all of my brown pieces, had very few usable red for this situation, and a very limited gold and tan supply.
I know he is a bit too tall (not possible to fix without losing aesthetics) and there a few proportioning problems, but honestly I'm surprised it all worked out so well. He also photographed pretty well.
Dassault-breguet super etendard of 2a Escuadrilla Aeronaval de Caza y Ataque, Armada Argentina (Argentine navy). This aircraft (3-A-203), flown by captain Cesar Augusto Bedacarratz, sank British type-42 guided missile destroyer HMS Sheffield during the Falklands war with its AM.39 Exocet
Out-of-box Flymodel kit, scaled down 50%,printed on 120 gsm paper. nicely curved clear canopy made with thermoforming some transparency sheet
EDIT: Oh, i forgot to say that the kit (Flymodel Nr. 051) actually also includes British Sea harrier FRS.1, but my kit missing most of its parts and scratchbuilding them is not a very good option, so.. sadly there would be no harrier to accompany my super etendard...
