25-12-2011: You didn’t think Eldetabernas stopped building paper models, did you? ;o)
Last time he build a LEGO Pirate captain, this time it’s another sea captain, from The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass: the fearless (or so he keeps telling others…) Captain Linebeck!
As captain of the S.S. Linebeck, he ferries Link from island to island over the Great Sea, and from the looks of it they’ll be visiting Madagascar soon! (watch out for penguins! ;o)
Great job building Linebeck!
12-05-2011: This time Eldetabernas built a paper model that’s not from a video game (well, if you don’t count the 1998 video game LEGO Racers… ;o)
It’s the coolest pirate LEGO ever made, captain Redbeard! Although he’s missing a leg, a hand and an eye, he’s still smiling: picture
Like all LEGO products, minifigs can be disassembled and assembled again in seperate parts, and Eldetabernas made a video showing that this papercraft version is no different: link ;o)
08-03-2011: With the problems with the mast and sail solved, Eldetabernas still wasn’t done with the King of Red Lions! ;o)
This time, he built the special sea base and the Chokipeta Wind Waker Link that Josh Darrah made (link).
I think they look very good, and fit perfectly with my King of Red Lions model! Here are two pictures: picture 1 | picture 2
To see a video of Eldetabernas’ King of Red Lions with the new sea base and some videos from the game (Eldetabernas didn’t want to cut the catchy music short ;o) go here!
25-02-2011: We already saw that Eldetabernas built the King of Red Lions again using stronger paper than the first time, but the sail was still causing the mast to bend because it was so heavy…
Now, he also solved that problem, by rebuilding the mast and sail and using two, long toothpicks and a Chinese chopstick to reinforce the parts from the inside!
So now, the mast is no longer bent: picture 1! He even made a schematic to show you how he did it: picture 2
He also didn’t glue on the backside of the sail this time to reduce the weight (because like he says: “it’s heavy and you can’t see that part!” ;o)
And as you can see it was well worth going back and re-building the mast and sail again: now the mast is perfectly straight!
Great work again!
16-02-2011: Eldetabernas sent me a message that together with two of his friends, he started a papercraft weblog of his own: Papercrafteros!
On their new weblog, they will showcase the paper models they built, so if his friends are just as big a papercraft enthustiacs as himself, I’m sure we will be seeing *a lot* of pictures there! ;o)
The blog is in Spanish, but you can use a tool to translate it or just look at the pictures! ;o)
29-01-2011: Besides sending me this picture and video of the papercraft Wind Waker Fishman (made by the Papercraft Couple) that he built, Eldetabernas also made a video tour of the artwork in his house – including all the paper models he built of course! ;o)
Here’s the link if you want to watch it too!
13-01-2011: You recognize this guy of course, it’s-a Mario! ;o) Built by Eldetabernas, and this time he also made a video!
You can see it on YouTube here: video
19-12-2010: Like so many papercrafters, Eldetabernas ran out of room to put his paper models… ;o)
His dad made two new shelves for him, but I think he will need even more shelves if he keeps building so fast: shelves icture ;o)
28-11-2010: More paper models by Eldetabernas! Besides remaking his Clocktown Schnauzer in less than 2 hours (here’s a picture of it together with young Link) he also built some other models since last time:
06-11-2010 EldeTabernas made another paper model; this time it’s Cloud Strife from my Final Fantasy / Kingdom Hearts series!
The hair and the boots were the most challenging parts he says, but I think he did a great job on those: picture 2 | picture 3
30-10-2010: This time EldeTabernas didn´t make a Legend of Zelda model, but the Nintendo Zapper light gun! picture 1 | picture 2
17-10-2010: EldeTabernas worked pretty fast, and he already finished the rest of the King of Red Lions! Unfortunately the mast still wasn’t strong enough for the sail, but I think it looks great nonetheless: picture 1 | picture 2
14-10-2010: In the first picture that he sent me, you can see that EldeTabernas already built the King of Red Lions once, but now he is building a new version out of stronger paper!
Because there are a lot of small parts on the figurehead, the King of Red Lions is definately one of my most challenging models, but that isn’t stopping EldeTabernas: picture 1 | picture 2
09-10-2010: Here’s another Legend of Zelda model built by EldeTabernas: Twilight Link!
He used regular printer paper, and except for the hands that required some extra patience, he didn’t find it very difficult and enjoyed making it. ;o)
02-10-2010: EldeTabernas from Spain sends me this picture of the Zelda models he made so far to show his progress:
The Clocktown Schnauzer dog, Majora’s Mask (center) and the King of Red Lions (right) were the first paper models he made, and his latest ones are wolf Link and the Postman! (both on the left)
Here are some more pictures, of one of his first builds, and one of his latest build:
King of Red Lions | Clock Town Postman
He is rightfully proud of his latest two builds I think, and even though he feels his first models aren’t as good, I hope he enjoyed making them! ;o)
Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
