Snow Queen, Wonder Woman, Batman and many other repaints by David Penso
18-04-2017: There are two reasons why you might not recognize my original Wetsuit Lara papercraft model in this new repaint made by David.
Not only did Lara go blonde, but more importantly, our familiar Tomb Raider is wearing a dress!?
And not just any dress, but a real Snow Queen dress, with icy motifs! ;o)
I hope the movie will be good too…! ;o)
29-08-2015: As you can see below, David must be a big Batman fan, because he spent a lot of time repainting my papercraft Batman several times before already!
16-03-2014: Why should the U.S.A. be the only country that has a national superhero (Captain America)? For instance here’s David’s version of Captain Mexico (based on my papercraft Batman again): picture ;o)
10-02-2014: Superman is no longer a Man of Steel, but a Man of Paper: picture ;o)
15-03-2013: David still wasn’t done with Batman, but this time he wasn’t making Batman, but Flash, another comic book hero: picture !
Just as he made Lara into the Black Widow earlier, he took the parts of my papercraft Batman and repainted them into the distinctive red and gold colours of Flash!
And as you can see, since Flash is just as muscular as Batman in the comic books, it looks pretty good! ;o)
He glued on the left arm a little crooked, but instead of changing it, he made a little Batarang and put it in Batman’s hand so it looks like he’s about to throw it! ;o)
05-06-2012: Some time ago, David contacted me about the possibility of recolouring my papercraft Tomb Raider Legend Lara to make her look like Natasha Romanova (Black Widow) from Marvel’s Avengers series.
And as you can see, he decided to pursue the idea, and now you can see the result: picture
David really did a great job! I think Lara looks great as Black Widow, with the contrasting black catsuit and the red/aubern hair, which is kinda her trademark I guess. ;o)
David even added some extra strips of orange paper to give Black Widow some more/fuller hair, and for the final finishing touch, he used the bullet bracelets and belt buckle parts from the My Paper Heroes Black Widow toy: link
15-12-2011: This time, David built my papercraft model of Indiana Jones: professor of archeology, expert on the occult, and ‘obtainer of rare antiqueties‘ (in other words, a tomb raider ;o)
You can see a picture of David’s paper Indy here: picture
Of course he has his trusty fedora and shoulder bag, his whip, his gun, and a machete to cut through the jungles of Peru.
Everything an adventurer needs to save the world from certain doom. ;o)
15-11-2011: This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 24th, and as you can see, David has already been making preparations: picture
He made a small Thanksgiving display for the office where he works with the papercraft Thanksgiving turkey from the SpaceStation42 (I think he made the turkey’s legs himself) and his Homer Simpson paper model.
But although a papercraft turkey isn’t edible of course, Homer doesn’t seem to realize that…
(or perhaps, Homer being Homer, he just doesn’t care that it’s only a paper turkey… ;o)
David did a great job putting it together, but I’m not sure he should leave Homer alone with a pair of scissors, though; knowing Homer, that combination can’t possibly end very well…
It’s one of the first models I made using Pepakura Designer, because I really like the polygonal/blocky look of the classic Tomb Raider games!
And I kinda like sharks, and although I’m not sure Lara does too (to be honest, I never almost got eaten by one…) I’m glad David does! ;o)
13-07-2011: It’s always fun to welcome a new co-worker at the office, and especially if it’s Paper Mario!
This one was built by David Penso, and from the looks of it, Mario‘s already feeling at home: picture ;o)
Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
