Final Fantasy Auron by Corey

18-02-2014: Corey sent me this picture of my papercraft Final Fantasy X Auron that he built! ;o)

Corey calls it an “attempt” at my Auron, but if that’s the case, I think it’s very good attempt, because he looks great! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Legend of Zelda models by Sean Fogarty

28-11-2012: You can never have too many papercraft Links, Sean must have thought! ;o)

From left to right in the back row you can see a few Links from my own papercraft webpage:

And in the front row, you can see two papercraft Links made by Chokipeta as a bonus gift in the Japanese Nintendo magazine Dengeki some years ago:

  • Wind Waker Link
  • Four Sword Adventures Link

But even though they’re all from different games, as you can see, they’re getting along very nicely! ;o)

14-11-2012: Another group picture of papercraft Link(s): picture

This time it’s Epona Link, Melee Link, and the new Menu Link that I only finished a few days ago!

Epona Link and Melee Link are models that Sean already built earlier, and he only needs to do a few more parts on Menu Link and then he’ll have finished all three regular adult Links I made so far. ;o)

05-11-2012: Now here’s something you don’t see in your average Zelda game…: picture

Ocarina of Time Epona Link, Super Smash Bros. Melee Link, and Majora’s Mask Link have killed a big wolf and are planning to eat its head…?!

But hopefully they will realize that the wolf is actually wolf Link, the alternate form of Twilight Princess Link (“Um, guys…?”) and refrain from eating him…! ;o)

18-10-2012: Sean told me about the new papercraft models he made earlier, and here’s a picture of his 2 favourite models: picture

You’ll recognize them as Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Auron, from Final Fantasy X of course. ;o)

They’re both characters that don’t take any nonsense, so it’s a good thing Sean did such a great job building them! ;o)

Update 14-10-2012: Sean tells me he has been quite busy, building two of my most challenging papercraft models (which both happen to be Legend of Zelda models) namely Super Smash Bros. Melee Link and wolf Link!

He also built the black mage Lulu, from Final Fantasy X , but of course he’s still a Zelda fan, so he also built Majora’s Mask and a Spirit Tracks Phantom, from the Paper Zelda website. ;o)

Update 18-08-2012: Sean has been busy building Sora, Cloud and Auron as well! (he tells me Auron is his new, favourite papercraft model! ;o)

Videos of Sora are already on his Youtube channel again (video 1 | video 2) and more videos are on the way! ;o)

Update 12-07-2012: Sean let me know that he made two other papercraft Zelda models besides the two already mentioned!

Before making Twilight Link, he already made Zora armor Link, and after young Link, he also made Oni Link. ;o)

He uploaded a new video of those two here: link

Don’t forget to check out his other videos, he has some tips on building young Link too! ;o)

11-07-2012: Sean told me about a video he made of the papercraft Majora’s Mask young Link that he built!

Here’s a screenshot of it, and the full video can be found here: link

But wait: Sean built Twilight Princess Link too! ;o) That video can be on his Youtube channel as well: link

That one took him about 4 days to make, and I think he did a great job on both of them!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Cloud, Auron and Batman by amerakat

04-11-2012: In the picture above, you’ll of course recognize Cloud Strife (from Final Fantasy VII / Kingdom Hearts) and Auron (from Final Fantasy X).

They were both built by amerakat and as you can see, he did a wonderful job!

It was not the first papercraft model amerakat built though; that was Batman. ;o)

Because amerakat didn’t have any new papercraft tools yet but just used the simple tools that anybody usually has lying around, it was a little bit difficult he says, but after a few hours, his papercraft Batman was finished: picture

And he liked it so much that he decided to keep papercrafting! ;o)

In amerakat’s DeviantArt gallery, you can see some more papercraft models that amerakat built so far, and also his wonderful pencil drawings: link

It’s definitely worth a look, so be sure to check it out! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

rotating Kurt Zisa by Dan Hilse

17-07-2010: Dan made this animated gif to show off his Kurt Zisa from all angles! He did the same for his Zora armor Link, but to see that one, you will have to visit his DeviantArt gallery: link

18-04-2010: Dan did a great job building Kotake and Koume! Using a barely visible piece of string, he made it look like they’re really flying around in his room!

At least that’s what I think he did; for his sake, I hope they’re not real witches…!

17-12-2009: This is Dan showing off his freshly mown lawn. ;o) He didn’t say though whether he did it himself, or that Link has a bag full of Rupees, Potions and Hearts right now…! ;o)

22-11-2009: Zora armor Link is Dan’s first build from Twilight Princess. He said he took extra care building that one and it really paid off, because it looks “really good!”

20-11-2009: By now, Dan has plenty of papercrafting practice! ;o) Printed off and assembled in just two days, Dan’s other models don’t seem to be scared by his new Oogie Boogie (maybe they know it’s just a paper one…?)

05-09-2009: Speaking of Dan’s other models, this Kurt Zisa really is a great build: it looks wonderful, but that’s not surprising because he had a lot of practice! ;o)

23-08-2009: And let’s not forget Homer Simpson as part of Dan’s paper model collection as well!

06-06-2009: Taking a break fom building Final Fantasy models, Dan also built not on, not two, but several of my Zelda models! In the picture he sent me, you can recognize young Link, princess Zelda herself, Majora’s Mask and the Clock Town Schnauzer of course.

I know you’ve never seen the darker dog, because that’s Dan’s own recolor of the Clock Town Schnauzer to make it look like the common ones found at night at Hyrule Castle in Ocarina of Time!

02-06-2009: And here’s another one for Dan to be proud of: it’s Cloud Strife Kingdom Hearts style! It’s looking at least as good as Auron, maybe it has something to do with the motivation he got from watching his brother play Final Fantasy 7 while he built it? ;o)

23-05-2009: This is Auron, built by Dan Hilse. Dan says he had “a lot of fun building it!” and he’s “really proud of the results!” and really, who wouldn’t be? ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Auron by Fungus

20-04-2010: After seeing some great pictures of paper models on an image site, 14 year old “Fungus” from England got inspired to build one of her own!

Eventually, she found herself on my website here, and liking the way my Final Fantasy X Auron looked, decided to try it out.

In just 5 hours (!) using nothing more than regular printer paper, a pair of scissors and a glue stick, I think she did an amazing job building her very first papercraft model in record time! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Final Fantasy models & “Delta Flyer” by Pierre Janin

05-11-2008: Pierre Janin did it again! ;o) A new picture and build thread thread from Yuna this time!

30-08-2008: Here’s a new picture and build build thread from Pierre Janin’s latest build of one of my models: Auron, from Final Fantasy X!

14-07-2008: Not only did Pierre Janin from Switzerland do a great job building my “Delta Flyer”, he also documented his progress in a build thread over at Le Forum en Papier with good pictures showing step by step how he built them.

He did the same for Rikku (picture here). The forum itself is in French, but luckily the pictures are in English. ;o)

Besides being fun to watch, build threads can be quite useful if you’re building the same model and are having some trouble. If you want to see more of Pierre’s completed models, you can take a look at his own Darktrooper page.

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Super Smash Bros. Melee Link & Auron by Matthew Stevens

06-06-2008: My Super Smash Bros. Melee Link model is a very challenging model with a lot of small parts, but Matthew Stevens from Northwest Washington did an awesome job building it: just look at the detail in the face!

It took him 3 months, because he only worked on it off and on. Auron took him about a month to build, but judging by the results, I think it was absolutely worth it, don’t you? ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
