21-12-2013: Those who think contests are a waste of time and you never win anything, guess again!
Charles actually won 2nd prize in the Lotus F1/Burn Energy Drink #MyKimiRobot contest that he found through my papercraft weblog: a real, signed Lotus Formula 1 team helmet:!
It took quite a while before the prize was ready to send out, but after three months, Charles finally got the helmet he won: picture ! ;o)
The contest was to build the papercraft Lotus F1 team robot supplied, and then take a funny/cool picture with it, and Charles’ entry had the robot racing a can of Burn Energy Drink, leaving the competition in the dust: picture ! ;o)
Congratulations on winning such a cool prize! ;o)
17-04-2013: Good news for everybody that likes Charles’ papercraft LEGO Captain America and Bane repaints!
Charles has sent me the files he made to build them, and allowed me to upload them here so you can download and build them too! ;o)
- Download LEGO Captain America re-paint (3,24 MB ZIP file)
- Download LEGO Bane re-paint (2,78 MB ZIP file)
Charles says Captain America’s shield was kinda made on the fly as he built it, but he included the basic parts, so you can make it the same way he did. ;o)
14-04-2013: Repainting my papercraft LEGO minifigs into Captain America meant the first time for Charles using Adobe image software.
But it looks like he’s gotten a taste for it, because as you can see, he made another great LEGO minifig repaint already: Bane, from the LEGO Batman series: picture
Pretty much every part was repainted to look like Captain America, and as you can see, Charles even made a custom shield!
Charles did a great job I think, papercraft LEGO “Cap” looks really good!
Thank you for repainting a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
