Howls Moving Castle Papercraft by thecontessina Howls Moving Castle Papercraft by thecontessina
My first papercraft ever! Howls Flying Castle :) It took me about 2 months to finish :@ It's worth the effort! To complete the magic, the wings move when free from the base!


Useless? Maybe.
Ridiculously cool to look at? Hells to the yes.

*UPDATE:

1) Link to download the 26pg castle AND English assembly directions:

[link]

2) The other directions page that helped the MOST:

[link]

3) I bestow my luck upon anyone who attempts this! Your friends and family will think you're insane, but just remember to shower and eat every now and then, cool?

Ah yes. My friend who's 52 was telling me about Howls Moving Castle and I must say... this is the best movie I had ever seen. Besides The Nightmare Before Christmas. I really love your work.

And I thought it was hard just animating it in the film due to the details, this must have taken forever! Good job! ;)

Oh my . . . wow! Definitely that is amazing! One can definitely see it took some time (and surely patience) to work on this. And the wings move? I give you credit for taking on the challenge of working on that, I mean, that is incredible and visually beautiful (then again, it's based off Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle which is based off the book so of course it's beautiful!) Very nicely done and excellent work really.
