23-06-2012: Andrew has been papercrafting for about 4 years, ever since he found my Majora’s Mask young Link papercraft model. ;o)
He built a few of other papercraft models of mine before, but the pictures he sent me are of his favourite one, the King of Red Lions!
It’s Andrew’s personal favourite, and I can totally understand that, because he put in a lot of extra work to make it look as great as it does. ;o)
He built it over a period of about two years, off and on in between other projects, and he used the papercraft Link and sea base that Josh Darrah made (it isn’t completely finished yet, but Andrew sent me the picture anyway: link ;o)
But Andrew went even further, making other small edits like the expression on Link’s face (picture) and he used markers to colour the white edges of the parts, so he wouldn’t get “white lines” on his model.
It was a lot of extra work, but it was definitely worth it: the King of Red Lions is now the proud centerpiece of his papercraft collection so far! ;o)
Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
22-06-2012: What started as a digital repaint of my Star Trek Danube-class runabout, quickly became a big project with Paul not only repainting the parts, but also tweaking them to get the model exactly the way he wanted: picture
Some parts even took him several tries to get them *just* right (picture) and what’s more, he included markings for 14 (!) different versions! But there’s so much to tell about this repaint, you should really visit Paul’s Rosco Files weblog to read all about it: link
Have fun building! ;o)
17-11-2011: Paul McCool built my Star Trek Danube-class runabout “Rubicon” (picture) for a reason.
If you visited my papercraft Star Trek page, you might recognize his name: he repainted my Type-10 shuttlecraft “Chaffee” before, and now he is doing the same for my “Rubicon”!
As you can see, he built my original version first, and was surprised (shocked? ;o) to see how big it was (apparantly, it’s almost as big as the studio model! ;o)
And he’s not just repainting it, he’s doing a lot more than that! You can read up on it on his own weblog, The Rosco Files: link
It’s not quite done yet, but if while you wait you want to get an idea of what you can expect, have a look at the “Chaffee”: link
Stay tuned! ;o)
Thank you for building (and repainting ;o) a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
