well then Knuckels, the first of my four Sonic models, is done and i'm really happy about it
after i finished the head i wasn't really in the mood to continue i just hate it to build the head at first i don't know, for me the model comes to the end first, until i build the head but this time i had to build all the other stuff after and i took myself very hard
if you are in papercraft and follow some blogs, you may know that there is an allready exist model of Knuckels so you may ask why i'm build an other one ? i don't wanna blame/harm juke here by telling some things but i have my reasons i had this model on my computer for over a year and actually i was really happy that he build this model as first so i thought i don't have to do it on my own but there are some things what i don't like in papercraft general, what this model includes
so i build it on my own again
i'll not explain what it is all i can say is to all new designer out there do yourself and the other papercrafters a favour and build your models first on your own remove the issues and failures AND THEN release them
i made that mistake one time and i still regret it
now then to the model
the model is not easy if i had to count it i would rate it 7 out of 10 so don't underestimate it
build the head, legs, feet, hands and arms seperately and combine them later otherwise you will have some huge weight and handling problems
basically it stands without any weight in the legs but i prefere to put some into the front of the feet
that's the reason why i just love this shit so much and i just knew it would be cool
as i saw this model for, well, meanwhile also over a year ago i just had to ask sanat49 for it and i'm very thankfull and proud that he spend his original mesh for a papercraft project 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 what made this model, not the first Dominance War Papercraft, but the first downloadable (ironic hint to an other crafter ) 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 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
I made this in one night. Fastest I've ever made a doll....you can tell.. I didnt have time to find the right materials and his face is a bit off... ANYHOO. I made him so fast because.....
.....Today I met the amazing CHRISTOPHER LLOYD, words cant actually express what a nice person he is!!
He singned the Doll and said 'WOW you're creative' when he saw it
IF YOU’RE GOING TO BLOG THIS ETC DO NOT REMOVE THE WATERMARK, LINK BACK, AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN, A) KEEP TRACK OF ALL MY WORK, AND B) SEE IT!! And thankyou so much in advance for your comments, I read every single one of them and appreciate them all even if I dont get a chance to reply to them!
damn! damn! damn! as i started this project, i never thought that it will take quite three months to finish
but this whole work with re-coloring from blank sheets to a colored version was totally worth 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 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
feel also free to write a critique would make me happy
V-Wing paper model from the game SW: Rogue Squadron (1998). PDF contains 1 page with instructions and 1 page with patterns.
I wanted to build this model for some time, but no one made one as far as I know so I've build it as a small side-project while working on other models. Patterns are made as vectors and the texture is in 200dpi, so it should cope well with some upscaling.
Enjoy the model and post some photos if you assemble it
Edit: fixed some minor issues, added tabs, photo of the final model Edit2: smaller zip file
