you maybe allready know this part

i know it's "not the original beam axe what's hidden behind the shield"
i have to say
i don't give a shit :D
all the work put into this, from the resize, redesign and recolor was just worth :dance:
but it's not only an axe, with a little special it can be morphed to a spear from 50cm to 65cm

the other thing, the original design is just really cool and totally open

when you print the pages a few times, you can build two weapons or on one side two big blades and on the other two small and waht not, it's up to the builder :meow:

but anyway
now to the morphing system
through the resize i had a little problem
the original staff is one page tall and i had to think about what to do
so i decided to cut that piece into three different and build it
like an antenna

here you can see my building process
first i build the three pipes (these are the hardest parts by the way ;) )
and cut some long paper stripes
then i wrapped one stripe arround at one side first until it fit good into the bigger pipe
you have to test it out how much you need
cut a stripe with the same lenght but don't attach it to the other side

then do the same but at the inside of one of the bigger pipes

now the system should be clear
stick the thin pipe without the attached stripe into the big pipe from the other side until you reach quite the end

then through the second bigger pipe at the side with the attached stripe at the inside

push this also quite to the end
now add the stripe at the thin pipe
and done ;P
sound complicated i know but it's really easy :)

then add the two red pieces to the staff and the top part
i allready combined them but it's up to you :)

and step by step the final axe is done :)

about the sheets:
because this time it's a recolored version
the sheets are coming as pdf
just click download at the top :)

the original design belongs still to playboy
redesigned and recolored by me


IMPORTANT:
THIS MODEL IS FREE AND SHOULD IT BE
SO LET IT BE!

the first part of the big Sinanju model from paper-replika.com
and damn, i expect a lot but not that it will take so ling to build that thing

not because of the size, but i had a few problems with the pieces
frankly, they are not very good designed
maybe, i can only speak on my own because when i design and unfold the pieces i have an other way to do this ^^;

anyway, after i finished the shield i finally notice how tall this model will be and i can't wait to see it :)
but it will be a long way

since i made the desicion to rebuild the whole Sinanju model from paper-replika
i thought also about to build some weapons
the problem, even there are exist some in an other Sinanju version from playboy, there is no instruction how to combine all the pieces

well, actually it wasn't really hard, the hardest part was to build them, specially from the axe
but i think the result speaks on it's own, and i hope that these picture help that others can build this cool things too :)

the next step is to start resize, recolor and rebuild the pieces a bit, that the weapons fit for the big version, some are really ugly designed and very heavy :worry:

i printed the sheets on A4
they are white because the sheets are designed for colored paper
the axe is about 40 cm tall
the beam rifle about 30
the sheets are available here

the beam rifle comes on two pages in an extra pdf
you can find the axe at the pages 2,21 and 36
the pieces are declared as A_xx

have fun :)

Just working with M14-style controls.

I left it as a fairly vague sketch when I realized there wasn't much of a purpose behind it.

The tapering on top of the handguard lends a strange appearance to the whole thing.

This is a Non-Specific Pistol with some moving parts (slide, safety, mag). Assemble it like an ordinary papercraft.

I made it for /po/ as an experiment in designing an intermediate-detail pistol model.

Dimensions:
Length: 6.75" or 17.5 cm
Height: 5" or 12.75 cm
Width: 1.25" or 3.25 cm
Barrel Length: 4.25" or 10.9 cm

Download Link (Mediafire)

As of 2013, the V2 iteration of this model is available, replacing the handmade patterns with digital ones and moving the breech component from the frame to the slide. It's available in black and stainless colors.

OK and this is my left over equipment for my Gundam Alexia.
For my friend suggested to me that he looks too lean and I made this!... He became bigger than ever! :jedi::jedi::jedi:

I think this equipment was used in offending earth federation's fortress and inburst the atmosphere....:D

I described about the Apara Equipment in this pic, also you can check whirling animation here: [link] and my original designation 3 years ago here: [link]

And if you noticed, X12 has triggers rotated inside the gun body, also X11 could be drawn beside his arms... and about "apara hana", maybe this name means flower in the mortal world, which 3 thrusters at its bottom seemed not cleary shown in the rendering. Also it's extremely long, also not distinct in the viewpoints. :D

"From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee." that pretty much how i felt building this thing. out of all the papercraft i have built, this one gave me the most trouble. the biggest problem was me. i am a perfectionist and well in the end its paper and it cant be perfect. but there was a few tricks that i learned to help me. the key was not following directions,taking a step back and and trying it my way. i wont bore you with the details but it included cutting off tabs and adding some.if you attempt this and want to know what i did ill send you some notes. man once i got that saucer section together, it was clear sailing.this one might go to a friend because i think i can now do one much better. also note, that is a stand that came with the kit. i threw it together in like 2 mins. if the weathers good ill make it a wall mount. KHAAANNNN... KHAAANNNN!

my finished papercraft AT-ST scout walker. i thought these things were the coolest thing ever when i saw return of the Jedi, when i was a kid. construction took about the time it took me to watch season two of star trek DS9(you do the math lol) overall good build and little extra was needed. the only thing i did add was a nickle and three penny's to each foot. at least i know that its worth at least 16 cents.with the added weight he will stand all on his own. i tried to use a light blue marker on some parts, but it bleed too much so i went with my old stand by, black. in the end i didn't use dowels for the canons and rolled the paper(witch i hate!). i felt that if i had cheated i would never let myself live with it. i didn't glue the head , so he will look in different directions. gotta thank [link] for the awesome template.

For those of you that don't know, this is the Phurba Dagger, a three-bladed knife and key component to many of the puzzles in the relatively new PS3 game, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. If you haven't played this or its predecessor, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, they are both fantastic games (though the latter is a bit watered down in terms of puzzle difficulty...).

The model feels a little small overall; I tried to match it as best I could to screenshots since I couldn't find any actual dimensions, but at least everything looks proportioned pretty closely. The final build comes to ~2" (~5cm) long, ~2" (~5cm) wide, and ~12.5" (~32cm) tall. Took about a day to build; it's really not very complex. The hardest part was trying to keep the blade tip as straight as possible.

I didn't include pieces for a stand though; the one shown I quick threw together and spray-painted, but honestly it'll sit flat on its own, so you really don't need one if you don't feel like making one.

FINALLY! Done! This one has been sitting on my harddrive begging to be built for what, nearly half a year now. Yea, I modeled it around Christmas time and never had the time actually to build it.

This is The Bebop, from the show, Cowboy Bebop. Though most fans of the show would probably prefer the Swordfish, I personally liked The Bebop the best... but that's just me.

The finished product comes out to 9.5" (24cm) wide x 7.5" (19cm) tall x 15.5" (19.5cm) deep, and according to the Cowboy Bebop wiki, the "real" ship is 69.2m (227') wide x 45.6m (149.5') tall x 142m (466') long; so my model isn't perfectly proportioned, but as best I can figure, it's scaled to roughly 1:295.


I think I did a fairly good job, only a few small mistakes I can really see, but that's probably just because I'm the one who built it. Heh, the biggest problem with it is where the colors ran a bit on the deck because I sneezed... oh well. Maybe I'll cut out a new deck and glue it on top over the old one or something... eh, it's done for now though. On to the next model! Mike - OUT.

For those that don't recognize it, this is the Needler, a Covenant weapon from the PC and Xbox series, Halo! There’s more info on the wiki page if you're really interested. Specifically, this is the Halo 1 model, but not too much changes about it throughout the series except the level of detail (and being dual-wieldable in Halo 2!) and overall size.

I've had this sitting in my incomplete folder for over a year and a half now, and with the lull I've had since finishing the Combat Shotgun, I decided to wade through that mess and see if there was anything worth salvaging. Honestly, this was more work than I was expecting it to be, I really made a mess with the geometry way back when, and putting a model together on this scale was a bit interesting at times. Eh, it was totally worth it.

I was a little torn on how to handle the needles on it. In the 1st person view, they look like a dark-purple-ish blue, but in the 3rd person, they’re a very bright pink, so I tried to find a middle ground… they came out a lot darker once I printed them though, so I guess I should have made them a good bit brighter. Oh well!

The final build came out to be ~2' 2" (~66 cm) long, ~8.5" (~22 cm) wide, and ~2' (~60 cm) tall. This actually is life-sized, honest! I took the dimensions from the halo wiki itself. Look at this picture of Capt. Keyes with one if you don't believe me, the thing is the size of his torso! Not to mention I'm only like 5'6" to begin with... As per usual, it's made entirely of plain copy paper, no cardstock included. If anyone tried building one, I would suggest cardstock for at least the inner handle if nothing else. Hmm, I think that’s it...


Oh god, I hope I’m not developing a gun fetish with all the models I’ve done lately...

I built Clu's light cycle on cardstock. The fold lines were covered over with Crayola washable markers which makes an *enormous* difference in the quality of the end result.

This papercraft has the worst instructions ever. If you decide to do this one:
* Don't make this your first one. Start with the recognizer.
* You need a utility knife for the inside cuts. I had success with Elmer's glue, a paper towel, and many toothpicks. I recommend using the toothpicks to spread the glue evenly, and to wipe off places where it spooges. A glue stick will work but they are very large and imprecise.
* Have a gray and a black marker handy. A Sharpie doesn't have the right sheen. Use this to go over the dotted-lines when you are done.
* Keep this final picture handy while building. During assembly the parts are abstract.
* There's lots of parts that just really don't fit. You have to mush and bend them together. This one takes a lot of time. I probably spent 10 hours on it all together, and I had to get my wife's perspective at times to see other ways something might fit.

Changes to the instructions:
* Mark which wheel is front -vs- back and don't forget mix them up.
* If possible, use paper that is black on the back. Or run it through your printer again and print black on the other side. There are places where the white paper shows and this will minimize the amount of marker you need to use to cover it up.
* Build both wheels then glue them to the chassis. I recommend doing this before cutting/folding the other parts. You could even stop at that point if you just like the cycle alone.

Wheels:
* Those thin white lines on the wheels are the slits for the driver's arms and legs that are referenced in step 8. Cut them with a utility knife before gluing anything. It is tough to do later on.
* Don't fold the A-I tabs around the wheels, or if you do, don't fold them in very much. You need them to be rigid so that they push against the other darker colored tabs that you glue them to.
* The designers don't know alphabetical order. *facepalm* Ignore that and just go around the wheel from A to I. This is where I started to lose confidence in this design...
* It is tough to see where exactly to attach the wheels to the chassis and what orientation to use. Line it up before gluing. The light cycle should sit level when the wheels are attached.
- The wheel has 10 sections. I'll call the bottom "section 1" and they count clockwise from there up to section 10.
- Orient them: the bottom of the wheel has a circle on it, made from black and blue stripes.
- Start glugin the the back wheel at section 4.
- For the front wheel, the dots are on section 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. So the bottom has no dot.
- Glue the front wheel at section 8

Undercarriage piece:
* This piece is a very convoluded way to hide the ugliness between the front wheel and the chassis. Unfortunately, it covers lots of nice detail and is really hard to line-up. Maybe a better way is to not put this on at all.
* Line this up so that it covers the dots on the wheels. Get it all lined up before gluing anything.

Clu's back:
* Put the feet into the slits and don't glue anything yet. I glued the center "B" tab only, and I did it as the very very last thing once everything else was together. Otherwise this piece just keeps getting in the way, especially when gluing the helmet.
* Clu really doesn't have much of a neck...

Arms:
* First, fold these in half and glue them together.
* Next, insert the gray handles into the slits in the wheels. Shove them most of the way in.
* Then glue them onto the cycle, near what I call the front windshield. The instructions call this Clu's shoulder, but you are really gluing it to the chassis not the driver. You can fold the tab to glue it onto the front, or the side. I recommend the side so that it does not interfere with the helmet. Maybe a better way would be to cut a slit and put it into there so it doesn't cover the detail on the side.

Fin:
* The fin probably isn't worth doing.
* Cut out the white area with a utility knife.
* The order of instructions on step 11 is wrong. First fold over the dotted line to make the two "wings" THEN fold over the yellow line. Don't glue it yet. Done properly, it will look like airplane wings with a bottom piece. Make sure you fold the tabs out before you glue it together.
* I cut-off the lighter colored tabs because they didn't line-up with Clu's back. Just glue the bottom part to the wheel.

Model number: ZMGF-1014
Code name: Gelgoog
Unit type: general purpose mass production mobile suit
Manufacturer: ZAFT (Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty)
Operator: ZAFT
First deployment: 10th December C.E. 73
Accommodation: pilot only, in standard cockpit in torso
Dimensions: head height 17.53 meters
Weight: max gross weight 49.8 metric tons
Construction: unknown
Powerplant: ultracompact energy battery, power output rating unknown
Equipment and design features: sensors, range unknown
Fixed armaments: 2 x MMI-GAU25A 20mm CIWS, fire-linked, mounted in chest; MA-M941 "Vajra" beam saber, stored on hip armor, hand-carried in use
Optional hand armaments: MA-MV05B composite armed shield system, mounts 1x MGX-2235B "Callidus Kai" multi-phase beam cannon; MMI-M643 beam machine gun, power rating unknown

When the Martians, led by Coordinator Ergnes Brahe, arrived in the Earth Sphere system on October 4th C.E. 73, their mission was initially one of a good will, encouraging nations to adopt the Destiny Plan, then used on Mars, as a form of Government in order to stop all future conflicts. However, the Martians found only one receptive ear in the form of then PLANT Chairman Gilbert Durandal. While Durandal was interested in their ideas, their meeting was cut short as the Earth Alliance, acting on the belief ZAFT had caused the fall of Junius 7, attacked with a fleet of warships and Nuclear missiles. It was because of this attack that ZAFT was treated first hand to the showing of one of Mar's latest mobile suits, the Astray Mars Jacket.

The Mars Jacket allowed for increased armor and weapons load out of a modified M1 Astray, while also augmenting it's speed and agility with the increase of thrusters, and the addition of wing binders that housed extra verniers and assisted with the units AMBAC control systems. ZAFT liked the idea quite a bit, however, they lacked a frame suitable for mounting this optional equipment, do in part to worsening relations with Orb, and a reliance on self built mobile suits.

The decision was made however, to go ahead with prototyping a design for a mass production mobile suit meant to take over for the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU units. Initially the role of the GOUF mobile suit, the plan was scrapped as reports from the field found the GOUF was simply too lightly armed to be effective and ultimately too close-quarters oriented. Taking the data they'd gathered from the Mars Jacket combat pack, the ZAFT designers engineered a brand new mobile suit Dubbed the ZGMF-1014 Gelgoog. Equipping it was a bit of a problem but in order to save cost the Gelgoog was given copies of several weapons already developed by ZAFT for standard armament such as it's Vajra Beam Sabers, and 20mm CIWS machine guns.

While most of the Gelgoog's internal weapons and components were taken from other machines ZAFT did build two weapons exclusively for the Gelgoog. The first was a new type of beam machine gun capable of laying down a much heavier volume of fire compared to the ZAKU's beam assault rifle. The second weapon was a reworking of the Providence Gundam's composite armed shield system. The shield mounting a Callidus Kai multi-phase beam canon meant to give the Gelgoog an unexpected punch for tight situations. Even with all these time and cost saving measures the Gelgoog saw a very limited production run do the the swift end of the war. Only a handful saw production and even fewer made it to combat before the end of the Second Bloody Valentine War. Almost all units ending up in the hands of FAITH members.

Model number: MBF-M2
Code name: M2 Astray

Accommodation: pilot only, in standard cockpit in torso
Dimensions: head height 17.81 meters

During the final stages of the second Bloody Valentine Tragedy, the Orb Union found itself being invaded by the ZAFT Military, after heavy fighting ZAFT eventually withdrew from Orb, but the experience left Orb's military with a bitter realization. The M1 Astrya the backbone of Orb's forces since C.E. 71 was outdated. Even with upgrades to give them flight capability the M1 Astray was simply no match for the cutting edge models being fielded by ZAFT. It was because of this grim realization that Orb secretly began work on a successor to the original mass production Astray.

The MBF-M2 M2 Astray was the unit Morgenroete Incorporated came up with to replace the aging work horse of the Orb Fleet. The M2 Astray was vastly different from the M1, base3d almost entirely off the original prototype Astray frames the unit was built with the idea of backwards compatibility, and mobility as the two most important aspects to the new design. The actual design of the M2 is taken from the Astray Blue Frame Second L, despite it's similar appearance coloring to the original M1 Astray, and Astray Red Frame.

Much like the original prototype Astray Gold Frame the hand plugs of the M2 Astray as compatible with all of Orb's current, and past beam weaponry, allowing for flexibility, depending on availability. The power supply system was also improved to allow for an extended operations period by making more efficient use of power transfer, impart by gold plating the hand plug links within the M2 Astray, and impart by the advent of more efficient less power consuming computers and an even more simplified natural OS.

Improvements were also made the M2 Astray's back pack, while it retains a similar look to the original Astray's the wing binders have been completely redone, and given extra control surfaces as well as vernier ports. While the M2 Astray is incapable of flight, thanks in large part to it's redesign of it's thruster pack the unit is capable of massive boost jumps. The back pack itself features 3 engines built for the express purpose of giving the unit added agility, and jumping distance, a fourth engine aimed directly behind the Astray is meant for rapid forward acceleration. Even though the M2 Astray is flight in capable thanks to the height it can attain in booster jumps, and it's redesigned binders M2 Astray is capable of a performing quick maneuvers whiles in free fall, giving a sense of flight.

The first M2 Astray's were completely shortly before the end of the Second Bloody Valentine War, however, none were able to see combat, as the combined Orb and Terminal fleet had already departed Earth Orbit.
