This is the test build for a new paper model design of Optimus in vehicle mode :)

. . .

I'm releasing the template, but with no PDO for now as I'm having issues with Pepakura :P

The template is here: drive.google.com/file/d/0B07vH… PDF, 9 pages, ~2.5MB
Please note that Google Docs viewer does not display the highest quality; I would recommend downloading it before printing :)

And here are a few photos for reference:
Front: docs.google.com/file/d/0B07vH-…
Side: docs.google.com/file/d/0B07vH-…
Rear: docs.google.com/file/d/0B07vH-…

could you please reload the photos for reference? I can't really see the back part in the photo. I love this paper craft by the way! It's really cool!

Hi,

I'm not sure if I have any pictures of the back, but there is a screenshot of the 3D model here that might help: www.papermodelers.com/forum/al…

I'm glad you like it!

Please reload the templates. I'm currently on hospital and I would love to do these prime papercraft pieces. They are awsome

How long did each one take you?

Oh, usually about a few weeks to do the model (taking anywhere from a few hours to no hours during any given day) and about another week to do the colors (a few hours over a few days). Then build it and tweak it :)

That is amazing.

Very nice! How do you achieve the shiny look on the paper? Some kind of sealant?
ProjectKITT's avatar

Thank you! Actually, there's no sealant - I have a local print shop print them with laser printers on a type of paper called 'gloss cover' (it's basically like a shiny cardstock). That's all I do, and I'm very happy with how it turns out :)

Very nice! The best thing I've made out of paper in the last year is probably a paper wad that looked like a goose :P
