Which papercraft model would you like to download?

        

         

       

What’s papercraft?” you ask?

Well, that’s when (in this case ;o)  you print a page of parts (preferably on some thicker paper) cut them out and fold them, and then glue them together to make your very own 3D paper model of your favourite game/anime/movie character/whatever you like!

There are a lot of websites where you can find free templates to download and build, including my own one of course which you’re visiting right now. ;o)

Currently, I have one-hundred-and-seventy-seven (177) models in stock for you. Select one of the Categories above or in the sidebar to the right to find the model you wish to download (if it’s not in one of the obvious categories, try the miscellaneous section).

If you want to contact me, or send me a picture of your finished paper model for the hall of fame, you can send me an e-mail at ninjatoes@home.nl and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Have fun building!

  1. This is sick bro!!!
    Do you have the interceptor version?
    I want to make a drone quad for this baby!!

  2. I love this site. I am glad you keep up with it. I found you a couple of years ago. Actually longer than that because I built the cylon raider 4 years ago. Due to the lack of time, I don’t get to build much, so it is nice to come back here and download more models.

    I have wondered, just how in the heck do you make these? I can’t even imagine how you would begin designing a model from scratch.

    Anyways, thank you for sharing your precious works.

    1. Thanks for being such a long time fan! I still enjoy papercraft very much too, but like you, I don’t have as much time to enjoy it as much as I used to. ;o)

      I think when it comes to creating my papercrafts, I can break down the papercrafts I make into 3 types:

      1) Sometimes I make them just by hand, directly on a piece of paper (and then I break them apart and scan in the pieces for my websites and to build the final version). My Advance Wars series, Batmobile, Going Merry boat from One Piece, and even the Tie-fighter from Star Wars are made this way. And I actually find this the most fun way! ;o)
      If you browse through old posts on my weblog for when I made the TIE-fighter of Advance Wars papercrafts, you can see some examples: http://ninjatoes.blogspot.com/search/label/Star%20Wars and http://ninjatoes.blogspot.com/search/label/Advance%20Wars

      2) But when I want to make a papercraft from a 3D video game, I try to start with the actual 3D model from the game, because it has the textures, and that way I’m sure it has the right shape and proportions so it looks close to what you see in the game. I like that especially for “old” video games, like my Tomb Raider and Zelda 64 series, because they are quite “blocky”. ;o) But also my Final Fantasy series and other papercrafts started with the actual video game models. For popular games, you can often find tools made by fans that let you extract the 3D data and textures, but to make it into a papercraft model, you usually still need to tweak them a lot in a (free) 3D program because otherwise game models won’t be very suited for papercraft… Once you’re happy with the changes (it’s important to try and unfold them “in your head” already, to imagine how you would build them) I unfold them with a great tool called “Pepakura Designer”: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/download/index.html
      You can see some examples of how I change the game model to a papercraft model in the work in progress section on my weblog too: http://ninjatoes.blogspot.com/search/label/Final%20Fantasy

      3) The third type is almost like the second type, except that I start the 3D models from scratch. I usually use SketchUp to make the 3D models from scratch, because it’s easy to use and 3D models for papercraft don’t need to be very difficult. I made the Nintendo Zapper gun and my LEGO minifigs that way for example. You can see some work in progress including how I break down the complex shapes into simpler ones to make them easier to unfold in Pepakura Designer on my weblog again: http://ninjatoes.blogspot.com/search/label/LEGO

      Have fun papercrafting! ;o)

    1. Thank you for the compliments, I enjoy making papercrafts! It’s only a hobby though, so yeah, unfortunately I can’t always spend a lot of time on making new ones. :o(

      Final Fantasy is a very popular series though, and many papercrafters made papercrafts of the characters, like Kaizo, who made many FF7 papercrafts that you might like: http://kaizopapercraft.blogspot.com/search/label/Final%20Fantasy%20VII

      The Last In Line and Fezco weblogs are two more that I can remember from the top of my head right now that have a lot of FF papercrafts:
