King of Red Lions by Antonio

(click for a bigger picture)

19-02-2017: Antonio sent me this picture of his built “King of Red Lions”!

Although it is a boat, I hope he isn’t planning on taking it in the water… ;o) In fact, the nice display base is all the “water” the papercraft needs (and can handle) I think.

It was made by Josh Darrah, and the sea base can be downloaded together with King from my papercraft webpage. But if you want the little paper Link to steer the boat, you have to ask Josh first (his email address is in the sea base file).

Thank you for downloading and building a Ninjatoes’ papercraftr model!

Feature in 20 Years of Tomb Raider

(click for a bigger picture)

28-12-2016: Some time ago, Meagan Marie (the Senior Community Manager at Crystal Dynamics) contacted me because she was working on a book celebrating “20 Years of Tomb Raider”, and she wanted to fill a big part of the book with fan art!

So she asked me if I would like to be in the book with my Tomb Raider papercrafts.

So I was like: “yes please!” ;o)

And it really turned out to be a great book for Tomb Raider fans, with lots of behind the scenes information about the games themselves, Lara’s excursions to other media, and, as Meagan promised, lots of fantastic Tomb Raider fan arts (my feature is on page 320 ;o) and it’s still only the tip of the ice berg!

If you want to have a look yourself, the book is “20 Years of Tomb Raider”, by Meagan Marie, published by Prima Games (and available at many book sellers of course), ISBN 978-0-7440-1690-1

Here’s a little promo that Prima Games made:

Thank you for making such a great book! (and for featuring me in it ;o)

Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II repaints by blake7

(click for a bigger picture)

31-07-2016: The “Red Baron” was a German fighter pilot in World War I, who was famous because he painted his airplane bright red instead of the usual camouflage pattern.

…and of course because he was a very good fighter pilot, who won almost all his aerial combats!

Although that’s not so impressive of course, when you think allof his enemies were flying in biplanes, and was apparantly piloting a futuristic Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II! ;o)

The original idea for the Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II‘s Red Baron paint scheme was by enc86, and blake7 and Revell Fan did a great job translating it to the papercraft templates, don’t you think?

What’s that? You want to know where you can get the parts to build one yourself? On the original post of course, where you can also find blake7’s other repaints:

Have fun building!

25-06-2016: In “The Dukes of Hazzard”, there would always be a part where “them Duke boys” would escape sherriff rosco by jumping the General Lee over a ramp, high into the air!

But it looks like they took their stunt a little bit too far, and ended up in spacepicture

As always, blake7 shared his repaint so you can build a “Dukes of Hazzard” General Lee version of the Battlestar Galactica Viper as well: link

16-05-2015: If you thought blake7 only made repaints, think again!

Together with Revell-Fan, he worked out how big he should make my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II for it to be in 1:24 scale – and then he did: picture

The picture shows the bigger version next to the regular sized US Navy version. If you want to make a big version like blake7, you can get the parts he made from my original Viper Mk.II post here: link

Or, you can have a look at blake7’s resizing tutorial on the Papermodelers.com forum (note: you need to become a free member to be able to download files there!) so you can learn how to do the same with other paper models you like! ;o)

04-05-2015: During World War II, it was not always easy to see for troops on the ground whether that bomber airplane coming towards them was a friend or an enemy…

So to try and prevent a lot “friendly fire” accidents during the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944, Allied airplanes got three white and two black bands painted on their wings and fuselage.

Of course a space fighter like Battlestar Galactica’s Viper Mk.II doesn’t really need such visual identifiers, but they do look good, don’t they: picture ;o)

Recoloured parts available from my original Viper Mk.II post here: link

16-03-2015: The third finished Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II repaint from blake7, a US Navy VFA-103 “Jolly Rogers” squadron version, complete with skull and crossbones emblem: picture ;o)

As before, you can get the parts to build this version from my original post here: link

22-01-2015: After the Caprica Police version, blake7 sent me a NASA repaint of my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II too: picture

If you like this repaint, you can get the parts from the original Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II post again: link

11-01-2015 update: blake7 sent me an updated version of his Battlestar Galactica Police Viper Mk.II, with higher resolution textures: picture

Here are some comparison pictures between the two versions:
picture 1 | picture 2 | picture 3

You can get this updated version from the original Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II post again: link

Have fun building!

11-11-2014: Some time ago, blake7 asked me if he could a repaint of my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II, and here it is: picture ! ;o)

It’s based on a drawing made by BJ-023 on DeviantArt (link) and best of all, blake7 even shared the parts he used so you can build this version yourself too! ;o)

You can either get blake7’s repainted parts from the original Viper Mk.II post on my papercraft webpage here, or on the Papermodels.com or Zealot forums if you’re a member there.

Thank you for repainting a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
