177086 Advance Wars Orange Star Headquarters (19-11-2016)
from: Advance Wars video game series / size: ± 3,9 cm x 3,9 cm x 10 cm
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 space… picture
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
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
You can get this updated version from the original Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II post again: link
Have fun building!
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)
Thank you for repainting a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
10-02-2016: Roy from Massachussets built a lot of plastic Revell model kits in the past, but nowadays, it’s all paper for him! ;o)
The first papercraft model he built was my Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but that one proved a bit difficult for a first time…
He gained a lot of experience since then though, and now his papercraft builds look really good!
(if you don’t believe me, the picture of his Oogie Boogie proves it! ;o)
Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
03-01-2016: The starship in the picture above looks like the U.S.S. Defiant, but it’s not: it’s the U.S.S. Monitor, another retexture by Bones McCoy! ;o)
It’s based on the descriptions of the U.S.S. Monitor in the novels “The Return” and “Preserver” written by William Shatner.
In those novels, the U.S.S. Monitor is a modified Defiant-class starship with a dark, microdiffracted carbon coated hull for extra stealth, sent on a mission to destroy the Borg homeworld…
I haven’t read the novels myself, but I’ve always found the Defiant a very cool looking ship, and it looks great in its Monitor colours too:
Like before, Bones allowed me to share his retextured parts for those that want to build this new version, you can get them from the U.S.S. Defiant download post again: link
And here’s another one, of the bottom this time! You can see the extra details in the textures that Bones added, but because the parts have stayed the same, you can still use Bill Perry’s redraw instructions to build it!
Thank you for retexturing and building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
14-01-2016: Ivana from Brazil doesn’t remember exactly when she made the first papercraft in the picture above, but she does remember the order she made them in:
For Mario, she didn’t even need to use the instructions! But for Link, she was glad I made them because that one is more difficult…!
For Mario, she sent me bigger picture too: picture
I think it looks pretty good, don’t you? ;o)
She also sent some more pictures of Link, who seems to be admiring the Master Sword in the pedestal: picture
And moments later, the Master Sword has mysteriously disappeared from the pedestal: picture
I think Link took it, but it’s okay of course, since he’s a good guy. ;o)
So you can see that Ivana has taken quite a liking to making papercrafts. She told me she already printed my papercraft Lara Croft from Tomb Raider Legend, and I hope she’ll enjoy making that one too of course! ;o)
Thank you for downloading and building these Ninjatoes’ (and others’ ;o) papercraft models!
