22-02-2012: Terry from Saskatchewan, Canada made this “Delta Flyer” for the Star Trek diorama he made for his home theater!
I think from the picture, you can already see that’s a little bit different than usual; that’s because it’s not made from paper, but from plastic window blinds!
Using the parts from my papercraft “Delta Flyer” as reference, Terry re-created the shapes using scrap pieces of 2 inches wide window blinds which he heated to they could be bent into the right shapes: picture 2 | picture 3
With baseboard putty, he filled the seams between the window blind pieces, and after a good sanding, he painted the “Delta Flyer” in the appropriate colours: picture 4
For many more pictures of this wonderful build, you can see Terry’s Photobucket gallery here: link
Thank you for downloading and building a Ninjatoes’ pape… ehm, window blinds model! ;o)
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.
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!
