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
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
oh man, that took long but finally i can show you and share the final model of Tails
before you now download the model, print and start to build it without any background informations i have to warn you, building this model was just a pain is the ass and it was probably the hardest model i build so far and in my case that should mean something
even the editing was hell and meanwhile i know my job, but had i known that it would be that hard, i had edit the model much much more there are still a few issues in the mesh but no worries, i will explain everything in the building process shots.
i can't really say why it was so hard, there are not much pieces or rather, not more then other model i also cut the sheets in the best way i know, but to combine all the stuff, specially the wiskers, the chest and the tail pieces, was just ugh maybe because this time it was just something special the model is flying, the tail is quite the same size as the rest of the model and to find a working method to combine it with the torso took me a whole week but hey, it is working as you can see and that's part of the job, to find and solve issues of the own models
i also made a lot of photos this time, that you shouldn't have that much problems here
model description: the model will come on 37 pages with 265 pieces and is 45cm tall again, the model has a flying pose and will not stand anywhere it is very hard and has a lot of weird looking pieces
Here's the reason I didn't post for this long. It's my 250th Deviantion special.
for those who are unfamiliar with bee Mario, play super Mario galaxy or galaxy 2 and find out about him.
The craft is designed, unfolded and built by AKA me
I think it came out pretty good, stands really stable at 30cm, 9 pages. It took me a week to make it, because I wasn't in the mood. For example, I started Last sunday, when I built the hat. The next day only the antennae, Tuesday the eyebrows (2d parts), Wednesday I built the head and the neck fur, Thursday I built a button, and yesterday I forced myself to finish it.
Will be released somewhere in October for my blog's anniversary along with a surprise pack, which has something to do with this October 3rd. Those who know or suspect what I'm up to please don't ruin it for others in comments. Instead send me a message and I'll confirm if it's correct.
A build I'm quite proud of, as it also won me a contest!
The whole designing and building process took around two months; one month editing and unfolding, and the second building. Annoyingly enough, I had to restart his legs six times due to mistakes made by experimentation... I also had to put off some important homework until the last minute. It was totally worth it, though.
It's been a while since my last model. It took me a lot longer to build this than it should have. Working on it got put on hold for one thing and then another. Once I did get back to it I was able to finish it rather quickly. It shouldn't be as long be as long until my next one.
