One Piece “Going Merry” & Zelda “King of Red Lions” by thithou

12-12-2013: thithou made this papercraft “Going Merry” that you see in this nice little photo collage as a Christmas present for his cousin, and he did a very good job, so that will be a very nice surprise I think! ;o)

He found it a little bit difficult to work with all the small parts, but even so it only took him about 4 days to finish! ;o)

He even changed the horns on the figurehead to a brown colour, and instead of printing the shrouds coming from the mast on a transparant sheet, he decided to make them a little wider so he could make them from paper too.

Before the “Going Merry”, thithou already made several other paper models, including the “King of Red Lions” from the Legend of Zelda series:
picture

And although he didn’t really have any trouble building it, after a while, the figurehead and the mast and sail proved to be a bit too heavy and they started to fall off… :o(

thithou was able to glue on the figurehead again using some extra strong glue this time, but for the mast, he made the difficult decision to carefully remove it completely and rebuild it by printing new parts again.

This way, he could put in some barbecue sticks on the inside for extra strength, and as you can see, it worked really well! ;o)

If you want to see some of the other papercraft models that thithou built, you can have a look at his DeviantArt gallery: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Final Fantasy Yuffie by Shaun

14-12-2013: Yuffie is the newest Final Fantasy character I made so far, and as you can see, Shaun liked her so much that he decided to build her too! ;o)

I think most parts aren’t too difficult, and Shaun found the parts layout and the instructions very helpful, and he did a very good job:

LEGO Pirate Captain Redbeard by Mariza

21-11-2013: It has many small parts and she touched it up with crayons, but Mariza did enjoy building my papercraft LEGO Pirate Captain Redbeard! ;o)

But it’s not surprising, because she really likes all kinds of papercraft art, and she even made a whole Facebook Page about it called “Artempapel”: link

Have a look, and I think you’ll like it too! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Batman and Batmobiles by Sunny

28-11-2013: Besides the two Batmobiles, Sunny Jain also built this papercraft Batman, together with his friends as a gift for another friend!

It’s a nice idea for any Batman fan of course, and I hope their friend liked the gift! ;o)

At one point, Sunny and his friends even thought about using real cloth for Batman’s cape, but because they couldn’t find a proper one, they stuck with paper (and it still looks really good I think! ;o)

24-11-2012: Sunny sent me a whole set of pictures of the papercraft Batmobile that he built from my papercraft webpage: picture 1

The unofficial name is the “Keaton Car“, because Michael Keaton played the role of Batman in the two movies (Batman and Batman Returns) in which this version of the Batmobile was used.

My original papercraft Batmobile was hand drawn and coloured with a black marker, and I made it so that the cockpit roof and the jet engine could be removed, as shown in this picture made by Sunny: picture 2

Because the Batmobile is all black of course, the “white lines” you often get on papercraft models from the edges of the paper, can become extra visible, as you can see in this picture: picture 3

Although Sunny didn’t mention it explicitly in his message, I think he found a great solution to that by painting over his papercraft Batmobile with black paint, because in the other pictures, you can see no more white lines and the whole model looks a single, smooth black, just like the real Batmobile! ;o)

picture 4 | picture 5 | picture 6

So that’s a great job building his very own papercraft Batmobile, and a great inventivity from Sunny!

Update: Sunny sent me some more pictures of the building process of his papercraft Batmobile!

I always find it very neat to see other people’s papercraft projects too, how a bunch of 2D paper sheets transform into a 3D paper model. ;o)

As you can see in Sunny’s pictures, you really don’t need a lot of tools to build a papercraft model:

picture 1 | picture 2 | picture 3 | picture 4 | picture 5 | picture 6

Update 17-11-2013: Sunny now also built the Lincoln Futura concept car Batmobile from the 1960’s Batman television series, made by Paper Inside!

Sunny found it very challenging because there were a lot of small parts, and to make it look even better, he touched up the white edges of the paper with black and red colours.

The most troubling parts were the famous double canopy windshields of the Lincoln Futura, because it was very difficult to get the plastic sheets to stick…

But Sunny managed to do it, and here are some of the pictures he sent me (but only a few though, because Sunny really took *a lot* of pictures of the entire build process…! ;o)

picture 1 | picture 2 | picture 3 | picture 4

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and Paper Inside’s ;o) papercraft models!

Young princess Zelda +lots more by minidelirium

11-09-2011: The neat little papercraft princess Zelda you see above was put together by minidelirium from Sweden!

Although she doesn’t make papercraft templates herself, she loves working with her hands and as you can see, she’s very good at assembly! ;o)

In fact, minidelirium actually built a lot more papercraft models, than just paper Zelda, many more from the Legend of Zelda series, but also from other video games and series, ranging from small and simple ones to very big and complex papercraft models!

You can see (part of) the rest of her papercraft collection in this picture (some models she already gave away to friends ;o)

If you look very closely, you can even see American McGee’s Alice too among all the other models! (without the arms though, minidelirium hasn’t made those yet ;o)

But if you really want to get an idea of the full scope of minidelirium’s papercraft collection, all you have to do is take a look at her DeviantArt gallery: link

minidelirium loves that papercraft is such a fun and easy hobby that everybody could do really, so she hopes that her pictures will inspire you to try it out too sometime! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s!) papercraft models!

Fierce Deity Link by Marezus

01-11-2013: This Fierce Deity Link is only the first papercraft model that Marezus built, but she must have a natural talent for it, because she did a really great job! ;o)

And I really like the picture too: the stripes in the background looks just like special effects from Fierce Deity Link swinging his huge, double helix sword! ;o)

Marezus likes to draw, and she must be a real Zelda fan too, and in her DeviantArt gallery you can find some really nice drawings of Epona and Link and more: link ! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Fierce Deity Link by Cesar Rodriguez

10-06-2009: As you can see by the timestamp on Cesar’s picture, he built my papercraft Fierce Deity Link quite a while ago already, but he still looks very good!

Fierce Deity Link (sometimes called “Oni Link”) is the ultimate form of Link in the video game “Majora’s Mask”, and it is very difficult to collect all the masks you need to trade to become “Oni Link”…!

Luckily, building this papercraft version of him like Cesar did should take a lot less time! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Battlestar Galactica Viper Mark II + Super Smash Bros. Melee Link by WickedPaper

09-10-2013: Despite my Super Smash Bros. Melee Link being the most challenging papercraft model I made so far I think, there are many people that did a very good job building him! ;o)

It really has *lots* of very small parts and pieces, but as you can see, WickedPaper did a great job too: he even made his own custom, more square display base for Melee Link to stand on, and I think it fits really well! ;o)

Here are some more pictures of WickedPaper’s papercraft Melee Link from different angles:

picture 2 | picture 3 | picture 4 | picture 5

02-10-2013: WickedPaper showed me this great picture of my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mark II that he built on his Facebook profile: picture 1 !

He tells me he had fun building it, and you can really see that I think, because the end result looks very good! ;o)

And I think the red background cloth makes for a very nice picture! If you like it too, here are some more: picture 2 | picture 3

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Batman, Sora, Homer and Majora’s Mask by Daniel

03-10-2013: Daniel sent me some pictures of another one of my papercraft models that he built: Batman, from the Batman cartoon series! ;o)

Daniel says he only wanted to build the black version, because the version with the blue accents looks too much like the 1960’s Adam West-version of Batman, and he never watched that series. ;o)

It also allowed him to save some money on ink, by painting the black parts by hand: picture 2 | picture 3

You can see it looks very good, and if he wouldn’t have told me, I probably wouldn’t have known about it! ;o)

Daniel enjoyed building his papercraft Batman, only the hands were difficult, but he says those are “a pain in the ass in every model…!” ;o)

But nonetheless he had to build those too of course, and in the end he did a great job on them!

24-01-2013: Daniel got himself a new printer, so he can finally print and build his papercraft models in full colour now!

And that’s exactly what he did with my papercraft Kingdom Hearts 2 Sora:
picture ;o)

He was a little worried about building the spiky hair, now that it’s all done, he says it was surprisingly easy to build and everything went together perfectly: picture 2

I think you can tell Daniel put in a lot of work to do the best job he could on his papercraft Sora, because everything from the hands (which are always a bit tricky because of the small fingers!) to Sora’s Kingdom Key keyblade looks really great! ;o)

picture 3 | picture 4

Oh alright then; because he did such a good job, here’s one final picture of Daniel’s papercraft Sora: picture 5 ! ;o)

18-06-2012: Daniel built another one of my models: Homer Simpson: picture

Because he could only print the templates in black-and-white, he had to paint it himself, and I have to say he did an amazing job:! I never would have guessed! ;o)

Daniel started with the shoes and pants, then the shirt and arms and then the head. He was a bit worried the fingers would be difficult, but luckily he didn’t have any trouble making them.

He thinks the eyes on his paper Homer look a little bit weird, but maybe Homer has just had a little bit too much Duff beer…? ;o)

21-12-2011: 24 year old Daniel Navarro from Venezuela built Majora’s Mask: picture

It was only the second papercraft model he made, so he printed it on regular printer paper to use it as a kind of practice and to save the thicker cardstock paper he has for other paper models he wants to do (and it’s in grey colours because he ran into printer problems… ;o)

He’s pretty happy with the results though, and I agree with him: even without colours, he did a good job building it and I think he can safely try doing more complex models too! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Kingdom Hearts Sora with shiny keyblade by Collecter128!

26-09-2013: Collector128 showed us the shiny Kingdom Hearts keyblade he made earlier already, and here’s a new picture, this time with Sora himself holding both keyblades!

It’s a great build, and with Sora wielding two keyblades now thanks to Collector128, I wouldn’t want to be a Heartless…! ;o)

11-02-2013: Inspired by the shiny lightsaber of my papercraft LEGO Luke Skywalker minifig, Collecter128 made a shiny gold and silver Kingdom Hearts keyblade from my papercraft Sora model! ;o)

You can compare the results in this picture: picture

The original version was made from the regular, printed parts, and the shiny version was made using metallic paper; it looks really good, and I think Sora would be happy to have such a keyblade! ;o)

Collecter128 als made several neat paper models of his own, if you like to see which ones (and maybe even try them yourself! ;o) all you have to do is take a look in the Papercraft album in his DeviantArt gallery: link

You can also see a bigger picture of his keyblade there!

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Twilight Link by eaglechild

2013-09-05: From the looks of this picture, it seems like Twilight Link has finally found a path into the Kokiri Forest! (or maybe he cut an opening himself with his Master Sword? ;o)

He was built by “eaglechild”, a 46 year old mother of two from Switzerland, who are all huge fans of the Legend of Zelda video games: her 10 year old son handles the controller when they play the games, and she helps him solve the tougher puzzles. ;o)

But eaglechild is practicing playing the games herself too, and she says it’s quite challenging to start playing video games at her age: at first she was too afraid that Link would loose all of his life energy before she even got the chance to hit the enemy, but now she proudly says she can challenge them without fear! ;o)

She found the confidence she needed in reasoning that she can play the recorder too (they actually found my papercraft webpage by accident while looking for Zelda sheet music for the recorder ;o) so she would also be able to handle the Wii remote control to play the games, and she was right! ;o)

And in true Legend of Zelda-spirit, even though they had never done a papercraft project before, she and her 10 year old son rose to the challenge to build their own papercraft Twilight Link together too, after buying good 200 gsm paper and scalpel knives to cut out the parts.

Because it was only their first, beginner project and papercraft Twilight has quite a few small and tricky pieces, they decided to scale him up to 150% (and they are even planning one scaled up to 200%! ;o)

For the glue, they poured all of it from the tube into a small, lockable jar, so they could use thin paint brushes to apply it to the glueing tabs.

All in all it took eaglechild and her son just 3 days to build Twilight Link as their first papercraft model ever: they had some problems with the (very tricky!) fingers not being able to bend the right way to hold the Master Sword, and the handle of the Master Sword wouldn’t stick, but together they were able to find a solution for those problems! ;o)

So together they already learned a lot about papercraft from their first project, and they are very pleased with their achievement; the message they sent me was very enthustiastic, so I think this is one family that will continue to have a lot of fun with the Legend of Zelda series! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Paper Mario 3D by Beav3rboy

2013-08-10: Here’s an excellent build of my Paper(craft) Mario 3D again, by Beav3rboy! ;o)

“Paper Mario 3D” is actually only Beav3rboy’s latest addition to his papercraft collection though, he has a whole cabinet filled with papercraft models he built!

And it’s a really broad collection too, ranging from a Star Wars scout trooper on a speederbike to Santa and his sleigh and even a Skyrim Frost Dragon, and lots more cartoon and video game characters!

Don’t believe me? Then check out his DeviantArt gallery and see for yourself: link

I just hope he can still find a spot for his new Paper Mario…! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

American McGee’s Alice and more by Bruno

2013-07-16: Everybody knows the story of the cute, young Alice that falls down a rabbit hole and ends up in a wondrous and magical place called “Wonderland”!

But Bruno likes American McGee’s version of the story of “Alice” better, where she is a bit older and Wonderland is much darker and more… evil…

So that’s why he decided to build my papercraft version of American McGee’s Alice as you can see! ;o)

He was a little bit dreading having to do the hands and the fingers because they looked so difficult, but then he was able to focus himself on the job and he managed to finish them!

If you’re impressed by Bruno’s build of American McGee’s Alice, have a look at his DeviantArt gallery, where you can see many other papercraft models he built already, including my own Kingdom Hearts Sora and the Koume and Kotake witches and Midna from the Zelda series: link!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Tomb Raider 2 Venetian motorboat by Amanda-Lara1996

2013-07-15: As you probably know, I’ve always been a big Tomb Raider fan, and if I had to guess, I’d say, so is Amanda! ;o)

She has a neat Tomb Raider collection (link), which as of now also includes her build of my papercraft Tomb Raider 2 Venetian motorboat!

It was the first papercraft model that Amanda put together, and she says she really enjoyed it, so that’s always nice to hear! ;o)

It looks though like Lara’s “aggressive” steering somehow got the motorboat on top of the statue from the papercraft young Lara Croft vignette…?! (can’t that woman ever park a vehicle normally? ;o)

If you want to see some more of Amanda’s Tomb Raider collection and other artwork, be sure to check out her DeviantArt gallery: link !

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Adult Link by Sam

2013-07-01: Sam is only 13 and he had only been papercrafting for about 3 months when he decided to try out my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link!

Furthermore, Sam only has a black and white printer, so he had to colour all the parts himself with coloured pencils first before he could start building!

But honestly, if he wouldn’t have told me, I don’t think I would have noticed because he did a really good job! ;o)

Sam says the difficult parts for him were the hair, the hands and the sword, but he did a very good job on those too and the finished papercraft adult Link looks really great! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Javier

2013-07-01: Javier has been in Rome for a while, and of course he was busy doing other things there than papercraft. ;o)

But now that he’s back, he sent me a new picture of one of my papercraft Zelda models that he built: young Link from Majora’s Mask!

As you can see, Link first went to Kokiri Forest, no doubt to ask advice from the Great Deku Tree. ;o)

To go on a great quest, you need some pocket money though, but luckily in Hyrule money is easy to come by: you just have to cut the grass: picture ;o)

Great job building another papercraft Zelda model again by Javier, and I hope Link has all the rupees he needs now! (because there doesn’t seem any grass left to cut anymore…! ;o)

2013-06-16: Looks like Javier really got bitten by the papercraft bug: here’s another papercraft Zelda model he built already, Majora’s Mask: picture ;o)

Or… could it be that it was actually Majora’s Mask that told him to do it to begin with…?

I’m not sure, but fact is that Javier is having second thoughts about building it, because now the evil mask seems to be watching him while he sleeps: link

15-06-2013: As we suspected, who else but Ganondorf (picture) would have come up with the idea to steal all the colours from Hyrule?

It looks like Link finally found his hideout, and once Ganondorf is done with his “you don’t stand a chance against me!”-speech, we’ll soon see if his adventure has made Link grow strong enough to defeat him once and for all (again)!

Another great build by Javier! ;o)

12-06-2013: Although Javier’s printer’s yellow ink cartridge was empty when he printed the parts to build my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link  (I can only suspect Ganondorf is behind it…!) he didn’t let that bother him! ;o)

He built his papercraft Link anyway, and as you can see in the picture, he did a great job: picture

With his Hylian Shield and Master Sword, I’m sure Link will soon defeat Ganondorf and bring back all the colours to Hyrule (as you can see, he already found back the colour “black“! ;o)

Let’s just hope Ganondorf’s evil colour-stealing plans don’t spread to other worlds, like that of Digimon or Pokémon, but as you can see in Javier’s DeviantArt gallery, so far the crafts he made from those series still have all their colours: link ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Tomb Raider T-Rex trophy head by Al Ex

21-06-2013: Alex sent me this picture of the papercraft T-Rex head that he built, from Lara’s trophy room in Tomb Raider 3!

He says he did have a few problems but he did his best and managed to get it finished and he had fun building it, and I’m happy to hear that of course! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

LEGO ghost and Disney’s Kim Possible by lubm

11-06-2013: Here’s another papercraft model built by lubm already, the LEGO ghost!

There’s no need to be scared though, because the LEGO ghost is a very friendly ghost. ;o)

As you can see, underneath that ghostly cloak is just an all-white, featureless figure with no face: picture

(okay, maybe that’s not really less scary than a smiling ghost…)

But even ghosts like to relax too from time to time, so lubm made a nice little bench for him to sit on: picture ;o)

And on special occasions (like Halloween maybe? ;o) the friendly LEGO ghost likes to do something special, so he gets rid of his regular feet when he puts on his ghost shroud, so it appears as if he is really floating in the air over the ground…! ;o)

picture 4 | picture 5 | picture 6

08-06-2013: Kim Possible is just an average teenage girl that just wants to earn some extra money babysitting, but because of a mix-up with her website, she finds herself fighting all kinds of supervillains that want to take over the world…

This papercraft Kim Possible was built by lubm, and as you can see from the pictures, she turned out really great! ;o)

Auron by Patricius

02-06-2013: The papercraft cool guy in the picture above is of course Auron, from Final Fantasy X!

He was built by Patricius Jason, who did a great job I must say! ;o)

And if you look closely, you can just make out a papercraft Blaziken Pokémon on Auron’s right too, from the PaperPokés website!

Patricius did a great job on that one too, and if you want to see for yourself you can visit Patricius’ DeviantArt gallery here or have a look at his Twitter gallery here!

Link, Sora and Yuna by cdncarlie

18-05-2013: This Ocarina of Time adult Link was the first papercraft model where cdncarlie coloured all the white edges of the paper to get rid of the “white lines” on the final paper model.

Despite the extra time it took, she really likes the result and I think you’ll have to agree that it looks really good! ;o)

Ocarina of Time Link wasn’t the first papercraft model cdncarlie built though: two other paper models of mine that she built are Kingdom Hearts’ Sora and Final Fantasy X-2’s Yunapicture | picture

Yuna is actually an old model already, from March 2009, and at the time, it was the most difficult model cdncarlie did so far!

She gave Yuna away as a gift, but she feels that with all the papercrafting experience she has now (in her DeviantArt gallery, you can see lots more papercraft models she built: link !) she could do an even better job now! ;o)

cdncarlie is a bit of a perfectionist, so she would also like to fix Sora’s Kingdom Key keyblade (it looks a bit crooked) but the problem is that she already gave that one away as a gift too…! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
