T-Rex Skull Papercraft

My second custom papercraft project. This one's much more ambitious. It's about 40cm long and looks great on display! I'm very happy.

The build is very time consuming - I finished two audiobooks in the process. The internal components absolutely need to be done first but if you get those right then the rest is easy. I made this one by printing the design onto regular paper then used a blade to cut out it with a layer of pink cardstock underneath. That's why there's no lines or white seams.

PDF and PDO download (feel free to make your own!)

Model based on this thing:…
    I just fixed up the teeth and made some adjustments to the meshing.

This is AMAZING!!! Thank you!!!! you think it would be possible to make all the bones to create a 1:1 model of the t-rex? I know, it's a crazy project but it would be possible in theory. If your model gets up to 1-1.2m it would already be a full-size skull. I want to try at least double it. But I think that if you print on a DIN A1 the size is the real one.

Trying this for my first build. Probably a bad idea. I need to figure out what connects to what lmao.

Good luck man. If it fails I would suggest practicing on some smaller models. Canon has some great ones that are good for beginner to intermediate people, and they are absolutely beautiful. (and the instructions are quite clear!)

Oh my gosh. I love you. Seriously. I've been wanting to make one since forever, but the good designs either cost a lot of money, or are masks rather than mounts as this one is.

wow! can it be scaled or is it just normal size for pep viewer?
Gedelgo's avatar
You'll need to buy a Pepakura license in order to scale it up. I looked into making one life sized but it was too ridiculous.
