Fierce Deity Link by EpicMusicSoul

19-1-2015: Believe it or not, but my papercraft Fierce Deity Link was only the second attempt at building a papercraft model by EpicMusicSoul!

It took him about 4 days, and as you can see it was well worth it, because the end result looks very good:
picture 2 | picture 3

To prevent Oni Link from falling over because of the big, double helix sword, he filled the paper model with rice to make it heavier.

He used the same trick on his first papercraft model too, which was a Wind Waker Wizzrobe, made by Ultimate Papercraft that he found on the Nintendo Papercraft website.

If you look at the picture of that one on EpicMusicSoul’s DeviantArt page, you can even see a little grain of rice that managed to escape from the paper model: link… ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Fierce Deity Link by Gena

29-06-2014: Here’s another papercraft Fierce Deity Link built by Gena!

This one was made as a birthday gift for a friend, and Gena was a little bit worried about sending it there by mail, but luckily it arrived safely. ;o)

And because it was for a special occasion, this time Gena’s brother used his skills with AutoCAD to make a special base with an image of the Triforce, which looks really great with the model: a really cool gift for a Zelda fan! ;o)

27-08-2012: This picture was sent to me by Gena, who built my papercraft model of Fierce Deity Link from Majora’s Mask: picture

She had a little help from her brother Joel near the end, and her Fierce Deity Link turned out really nicely! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Fierce Deity Link by Marezus

01-11-2013: This Fierce Deity Link is only the first papercraft model that Marezus built, but she must have a natural talent for it, because she did a really great job! ;o)

And I really like the picture too: the stripes in the background looks just like special effects from Fierce Deity Link swinging his huge, double helix sword! ;o)

Marezus likes to draw, and she must be a real Zelda fan too, and in her DeviantArt gallery you can find some really nice drawings of Epona and Link and more: link ! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Fierce Deity Link by Cesar Rodriguez

10-06-2009: As you can see by the timestamp on Cesar’s picture, he built my papercraft Fierce Deity Link quite a while ago already, but he still looks very good!

Fierce Deity Link (sometimes called “Oni Link”) is the ultimate form of Link in the video game “Majora’s Mask”, and it is very difficult to collect all the masks you need to trade to become “Oni Link”…!

Luckily, building this papercraft version of him like Cesar did should take a lot less time! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Batman, Sora, Homer and Majora’s Mask by Daniel

03-10-2013: Daniel sent me some pictures of another one of my papercraft models that he built: Batman, from the Batman cartoon series! ;o)

Daniel says he only wanted to build the black version, because the version with the blue accents looks too much like the 1960’s Adam West-version of Batman, and he never watched that series. ;o)

It also allowed him to save some money on ink, by painting the black parts by hand: picture 2 | picture 3

You can see it looks very good, and if he wouldn’t have told me, I probably wouldn’t have known about it! ;o)

Daniel enjoyed building his papercraft Batman, only the hands were difficult, but he says those are “a pain in the ass in every model…!” ;o)

But nonetheless he had to build those too of course, and in the end he did a great job on them!

24-01-2013: Daniel got himself a new printer, so he can finally print and build his papercraft models in full colour now!

And that’s exactly what he did with my papercraft Kingdom Hearts 2 Sora:
picture ;o)

He was a little worried about building the spiky hair, now that it’s all done, he says it was surprisingly easy to build and everything went together perfectly: picture 2

I think you can tell Daniel put in a lot of work to do the best job he could on his papercraft Sora, because everything from the hands (which are always a bit tricky because of the small fingers!) to Sora’s Kingdom Key keyblade looks really great! ;o)

picture 3 | picture 4

Oh alright then; because he did such a good job, here’s one final picture of Daniel’s papercraft Sora: picture 5 ! ;o)

18-06-2012: Daniel built another one of my models: Homer Simpson: picture

Because he could only print the templates in black-and-white, he had to paint it himself, and I have to say he did an amazing job: I never would have guessed! ;o)

Daniel started with the shoes and pants, then the shirt and arms and then the head. He was a bit worried the fingers would be difficult, but luckily he didn’t have any trouble making them.

He thinks the eyes on his paper Homer look a little bit weird, but maybe Homer has just had a little bit too much Duff beer…? ;o)

21-12-2011: 24 year old Daniel Navarro from Venezuela built Majora’s Mask: picture

It was only the second papercraft model he made, so he printed it on regular printer paper to use it as a kind of practice and to save the thicker cardstock paper he has for other paper models he wants to do (and it’s in grey colours because he ran into printer problems… ;o)

He’s pretty happy with the results though, and I agree with him: even without colours, he did a good job building it and I think he can safely try doing more complex models too! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Paper Mario 3D by Beav3rboy

2013-08-10: Here’s an excellent build of my Paper(craft) Mario 3D again, by Beav3rboy! ;o)

“Paper Mario 3D” is actually only Beav3rboy’s latest addition to his papercraft collection though, he has a whole cabinet filled with papercraft models he built!

And it’s a really broad collection too, ranging from a Star Wars scout trooper on a speederbike to Santa and his sleigh and even a Skyrim Frost Dragon, and lots more cartoon and video game characters!

Don’t believe me? Then check out his DeviantArt gallery and see for yourself: link

I just hope he can still find a spot for his new Paper Mario…! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

American McGee’s Alice and more by Bruno

2013-07-16: Everybody knows the story of the cute, young Alice that falls down a rabbit hole and ends up in a wondrous and magical place called “Wonderland”!

But Bruno likes American McGee’s version of the story of “Alice” better, where she is a bit older and Wonderland is much darker and more… evil…

So that’s why he decided to build my papercraft version of American McGee’s Alice as you can see! ;o)

He was a little bit dreading having to do the hands and the fingers because they looked so difficult, but then he was able to focus himself on the job and he managed to finish them!

If you’re impressed by Bruno’s build of American McGee’s Alice, have a look at his DeviantArt gallery, where you can see many other papercraft models he built already, including my own Kingdom Hearts Sora and the Koume and Kotake witches and Midna from the Zelda series: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Adult Link by Sam

2013-07-01: Sam is only 13 and he had only been papercrafting for about 3 months when he decided to try out my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link!

Furthermore, Sam only has a black and white printer, so he had to colour all the parts himself with coloured pencils first before he could start building!

But honestly, if he wouldn’t have told me, I don’t think I would have noticed because he did a really good job! ;o)

Sam says the difficult parts for him were the hair, the hands and the sword, but he did a very good job on those too and the finished papercraft adult Link looks really great! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Javier

2013-07-01: Javier has been in Rome for a while, and of course he was busy doing other things there than papercraft. ;o)

But now that he’s back, he sent me a new picture of one of my papercraft Zelda models that he built: young Link from Majora’s Mask!

As you can see, Link first went to Kokiri Forest, no doubt to ask advice from the Great Deku Tree. ;o)

To go on a great quest, you need some pocket money though, but luckily in Hyrule money is easy to come by: you just have to cut the grass: picture ;o)

Great job building another papercraft Zelda model again by Javier, and I hope Link has all the rupees he needs now! (because there doesn’t seem any grass left to cut anymore…! ;o)

2013-06-16: Looks like Javier really got bitten by the papercraft bug: here’s another papercraft Zelda model he built already, Majora’s Mask: picture ;o)

Or… could it be that it was actually Majora’s Mask that told him to do it to begin with…?

I’m not sure, but fact is that Javier is having second thoughts about building it, because now the evil mask seems to be watching him while he sleeps: link

15-06-2013: As we suspected, who else but Ganondorf (picture) would have come up with the idea to steal all the colours from Hyrule?

It looks like Link finally found his hideout, and once Ganondorf is done with his “you don’t stand a chance against me!”-speech, we’ll soon see if his adventure has made Link grow strong enough to defeat him once and for all (again)!

Another great build by Javier! ;o)

12-06-2013: Although Javier’s printer’s yellow ink cartridge was empty when he printed the parts to build my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link  (I can only suspect Ganondorf is behind it…!) he didn’t let that bother him! ;o)

He built his papercraft Link anyway, and as you can see in the picture, he did a great job: picture

With his Hylian Shield and Master Sword, I’m sure Link will soon defeat Ganondorf and bring back all the colours to Hyrule (as you can see, he already brought back the colour “black“! ;o)

Let’s just hope Ganondorf’s evil colour-stealing plans don’t spread to other worlds, like that of Digimon or Pokémon, but as you can see in Javier’s DeviantArt gallery, so far the crafts he made from those series still have all their colours: link ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by William

12-05-2013: William sent me another picture, showing some new papercraft models he made since last time! ;o)

In the background, right next to Beast Ganon, is my very own Menu Link, the adult version from Ocarina of Time!

And in the top left, you can see the Moon from Majora’s Mask!

It actually took William quite some time to track that one down, because there were different versions at one time, but most of the original download links are gone now… :o(

And once William finally did manage to find a working download link, it turned out the template was incomplete, so he had to improvise and use one of the pages twice to make a complete Moon!

So that was a bit troublesome, but luckily William was able to overcome the problem with some smart thinking. ;o)

Most of the other paper models in the picture are the ones William already showed us before, except maybe one: I think the “Donkey Kong” poster on the wall in the background might actually not be just a poster, but the papercraft diorama piece made by Linkdude101 on Nintendo Papercraft!

16-10-2012: As you can see in this picture, William from Sweden made several more papercraft models since last time, including my own young Princess Zelda!

The other, new paper models you can see are made by billybob884:

  • Nintendo 64 logo (link)
  • Ganon in his beast-form (link)

Especially that last one took up much of his spare time the last three months, but if you see this group picture, you’ll agree that it was time well spent! ;o)

26-03-2012: William built not one, but two new models since last time: picture

The first one is young Link, who was just minding his own business, no doubt on his way to the next adventure, when a big bully suddenly blocked the road (read: bookshelf).

That big bully was of course Ganondorf, but even though he’s almost twice as big as young Link, I think he’s going to regret bullying Link like that… ;o)

04-01-2012: William from Sweden found my papercraft webpage by accident, but he liked the paper models so much that he decided to try it out himself!

These are the two paper models he built: picture

One is Majora’s Mask, and it’s hard to see, but he even made a small loop on its back so he can hang it on his wall.

I know what you’re thinking of course, but I think William doesn’t have to be afraid of Majora‘s evil powers in the mask: Fierce Deity Link will deal with Majora if he tries anything suspicous! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Majora’s Mask by Burusai & ShinigamiVermont

03-02-2013: Burusai made this papercraft Majora’s Mask and picture together with her friend ShinigamiVermont!

The way it seems to be floating in mid air makes the already mesmerizing eyes look even more eerie

I hope they know what they’re doing, because even if it’s two against one, the powers of Majora’s Mask aren’t to trifled with…! ;o)

If you want to see more of Burusai’s and ShinigamiVermont’s artwork, you can check out their DeviantArt galleries: Burusai | ShinigamiVermont

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Majora’s Mask & Clocktown Schnauzer by rebeccartist

29-01-2013: rebeccartist took up papercraft as a hobby about two years ago, and one of the paper models she built since then is my Majora’s Mask!

Originally, she built the mask in black and white, but she used acrylic paint togive it its mesmerizing colours! ;o)

Another one of the paper models that rebeccartist built so far, is the Clocktown Schnauzer; that one was a bit difficult to build she says, maybe because it’s quite small?

As you can see, it easily fits in the palm of her hand: picture

Rebeccartist tells me she would like to build lots more papercraft models, so maybe you’ll find them if you visit her DeviantArt gallery in the future: link ? ;o)

And with a nickname like rebeccartist, it won’t surprise you that she likes doing other arts and crafts as well, so you can always take a look at some of the drawings, paintings and even a small woven basket she made! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Final Fantasy models and Batman by Stephen

02-12-2012: In the picture above, you can see the first 2 papercraft models Stephen ever made: my Kingdom Hearts version of Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud Strife and my The Animated Series version of Batman!

They’re not the only papercraft models he made, though:

  • Here’s a picture of Final Fantasy VII’s Red XIII (made by Kaizo)
  • And here’s a picture of Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth (also made by Kaizo)

Stephen did a great job building these papercraft models, and I think he’s a big Final Fantasy fan, so these are probably only the tip of the iceberg! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s!) papercraft models!

Clock Town Schnauzer by Jose (R15ABRAHAM)

26-11-2012: This cute paper dog is the Schnauzer that’s always chasing Link near the Clock Tower in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask!

It was built by Jose, but because Jose doesn’t speak and write English very well, he made a very funny mistake at first in the description of the picture: he called it the dog from Clown Town! ;o)

But actually if you think about it, it’s not *that* strange a mistake, because some of the people that Link meets in Clock Town really do act like clowns sometimes…! ;o)

If you want to see some other papercraft models that Jose built, you can check out his DeviantArt gallery here: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Oni Link versus Twilight Link by Samuel Herrera

02-10-2012: Samuel Herrera made an absolutely amazing stop-motion video of Fierce Deity Link battling Twilight Hero Link: video link

It turns out, Fierce Deity Link en Twilight Hero Link are both after the same treasure, and when they finally meet in the final room of the Sacred Living Room Dungeon, they fight to decided who gets the “ultimate” prize… ;o)

Of course paper models are no action figures, so it’s not so easy to make a stop-motion video of them, but Samuel did a great job!

For Zelda fans, there are lots of recognizable sound effects and visual effects, and although it must have taken Samuel a lot of time, you can really see he must have had a lot of fun making it! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models! (and making a video out of them! ;o)

Young Link by Jack

28-08-2012: Jack finished this papercraft young Link a few weeks ago, but he hadn’t sent me a picture yet until now.

And I’m glad he did, because it looks really nice! ;o) Here’s another picture, from the back this time: picture

Jack’s understandingly very proud of it, he even says it’s one of the best papercraft models he made so far! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models and more by Azeral

19-08-2012: In this new picture that Azeral sent me, you can recognize some of my Legend of Zelda models, and some other papercraft models as well!

Of course you can recognize Fierce Deity Link, and not one but two Twilight Princess Zora armor Links (according to Azeral, one of them is a little old and needs a stick:  ZaL 1ZaL 2 ;o)

His friends at school were very impressed with the paper models he built, so he likes to keep building them!

There are lots of other papercraft websites on the internet nowadays of course, and as you can see in the group picture, Azeral also built the boxing robot Noisy Boy from the Real Steel movie and a paper toy of Soul Eater Evans from the Soul Eater anime: Noisy Boy | Soul Eater Evans

I think Azarel did a great job on his paper models so far, and he’s already planning on building new models! ;o)

23-10-2011: Azeral sent me this picture of Twilight Princess’ Zora armor Link fighting a mechanical chick! (an evil cucco bomb perhaps…?)

ZaL isn’t the only paper model that Azeral built, though!

In this picture, you can see his Fierce Deity Link, and here is ZaL‘s brother! (and isn’t that Midna‘s helmet in the background in this picture…? ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Young Link by thouartodd

18-06-2012: Many Zelda fans like my papercraft model of young Link from Majora’s Mask, and personally, I think it’s because its “blocky” appearance makes it look like he jumped right from the screen onto your desk! ;o)

This one was built by thouartodd, and he even scaled it down to half its original size before building it.

It made some small parts a bit more difficult, but he did a great job: as you can see, young Link is looking great from all angles:
picture 2 | picture 3 | picture 4

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Floriaski

29-05-2012: After building her first papercraft model only a little while ago, Floriaski already built 2 new ones!

Or rather, you could say she built 3 new ones, because as you can see, one of them is Link riding Epona, which is actually two models in one I guess. ;o)

The other new model that Floriaski built, is Majora’s Mask itself: picture

It’s a small and relatively simple model, but a lot of people seem to like building it. Or maybe the voices they start hearing after they’ve stared into the mask’s eyes too long tell them they have to build it…?

If you can pull yourself away from the mesmerizing stare of Majora’s Mask long enough, you can find the bigger pictures and more artwork in Floriaski’s DeviantArt gallery: link

23-05-2012: Floriaski really likes the Zelda series, so one day, she decided to built my young Link papercraft model: picture

It’s the first papercraft model she ever made, so she used the version with fold lines to make it a little easier for herself.

I think she did a great job, and maybe she will build more paper models now? ;o) But only if she can find the time of course, because she also likes to draw a lot!

If you want to see Floriaski’s drawings, you should definately check out her DeviantArt gallery: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by AseraRose

11-05-2012: AseraRose hadn’t been able to do much papercrafting because of school and work, but now she finally finished a new one: Super Smash Bros. Melee Link!

I think it’s the most challenging model I made so far because it has so many tiny parts, but AseraRose found it “relatively easy” and only the fingers were “a bit finicky”! ;o)

I guess building all those other Zelda models gave her lots of experience to build this one: Aserarose says building the hands on her other Link made it a lot easier to make Melee Link’s hands too!

In fact, the most difficult parts she found were the guard and pommel on the Master Sword, but all in all, she enjoyed building Super smash Bros Melee Link and the base for him to stand on, and I think she can be really proud of the result!

13-07-2010: AseraRose sent me a couple of pictures of the papercraft Zelda models that she built.

She found the head and hair of wolf Link pretty difficult to make because the parts kept coming apart, but she solved that by taping the glueing tabs inside the body.

And to prevent Midna’s head falling off, she stuck a toothpick down her neck (it’s a good thing paper models feel no pain I guess… ;o)

But AseraRose built more models! From Twilight Princess, she also made Zora armor Link, and from Majora’s Mask, she built Fierce Deity Link.

And last but not least, she also made Link’s nemesis, Ganondorf, from Ocarina of Time. Here’s a picture of these three models together.

AseraRose is already thinking about building another model, so maybe we’ll see more of her builds in the future!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Batman by Lionel Cousseau

02-04-2012: Here’s the first papercraft Batman for the hall of fame!

As you can see, it’s the Animated Series version with the blue cape (I also made a New Batman Adventures version with a black cape).

Lionel’s papercraft Batman looks great, and he tells me he had a lot of fun building it, but he did assemble it in a slightly different order than I did in the instructions:

– Lionel found it easier to glue the torso to the legs *before* glueing on the head.

– And he also found it easier to glue the hands to the arms *before* glueing the arms to the torso.

I always base the part numbers and instructions on the way I assemble the paper models myself, but if you find it easier to do it a different way like Lionel, don’t hesitate to experiment a bit of course! ;o)

28-03-2010: Lionel from France sends me this great picture of Ganondorf: picture

But besides that one, he also built young Link and young princess Zelda!

He tells me he found them challenging to make, but that the end result was worth it (“awesome !!!”, in his own words ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Captain Linebeck by EldeTabernas

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!

Zelda models by Leah

29-11-2011: This picture of Epona and Link is from Leah (a.k.a. AlphaWolfKodijr on DeviantArt)

She found Link‘s face a bit difficult to build, but she really likes Epona, and she didn’t just build it once, but twice before she was satisfied with it! ;o)
picture 2picture 3

But Leah actually built many more papercraft models! Another one of my own Zelda series is the mule that pulls Cremia’s milk wagon during the “Milk Road Run” sidequest in Majora’s Mask: picture

If you want to see bigger pictures of Leah’s Epona and Link or mule, or the other papercraft models she built, you can visit her DeviantArt papercraft gallery here: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s ;o) papercraft models!

Paper Mario by Aaron Mears

16-05-2011: Aaron found some time again to do some more papercrafting this weekend, and he decided to build my 3D Paper Mario!

The picture was taken in computer class: Aaron’s classmates (and his teacher ;o) are always very impressed whenever he brings with him another one of his builds! ;o)

09-05-2011: After all the Zelda models that Aaron built earlier, this time he made an Advance Wars unit!

Although he never played the game, he liked the look of the Orange Star Fighter I made recently, so he decided to printed it off and and build it! ;o)

His pictures really show the scale of my papercraft Advance Wars units, most of them easily fit your hand: picture 1 | picture 2

This has its advantages, of course: for instance, you don’t have to invest in expensive Anti-Air units and Missiles anymore, since you can just pluck enemy Fighters from the sky should they be foolish enough to attack you: picture ;o)

04-08-2010: We had already seen Aaron’s wolf Link, but now he also built Midna: picture

Although I really made her to fit on the back of wolf Link, Aaron tells me she is also quite comfortable on the armrest of the chair that he made himself: picture

20-12-2009: Aaron’s thirst for Zelda models is far from satisfied yet, as he also built Hero outfit Link now! Here he is together with Zora armor Link, and here’s a picture of it alone.

22-10-2009: Two new models by Aaron Mears! The first one is princess Zelda, and the second one is wolf Link. Aaron has been working on them off and on all during summer break, and a month into school. So that’s how many Zelda models already? Well, you can see in this groupshot!

01-07-2009 Aaron promised me he’d send some new pictures, and here they are! The first one is a rebuild of young Link that he did earlier. I guess he just wanted to make it *perfect* (and now he also repainted the sheeth to make it look like the blade of the sword! ;o)

The second one is Fierce Deity Link. You can see another Fierce Deity Link in super deformed style in the picture, it’s a repaint of ChokiPETA’s Four Swords Link and can be downloaded from here.

The final one in this update is my newest model, Zora armor Link. I’m very glad to see that most people find it relatively easy to build, and the results like this one are usually great as well! ;o)

09-06-2009: More paper Zelda models from Aaron! This time it’s the King of Red Lions. And Aaron also built Josh Darrah’s Great Sea Base! (picture)

17-05-2009: I guess Aaron forgot to mention he also built my Epona & Link models! ;o) You can see them here, together with young Link and another Link from a different papercraft creator (which you can download here). If I remember correctly, it was made with Tenkai, the predecessor of Pepakura Designer.

And that concludes the random trivia lesson for today. ;o)

10-05-2009: Aaron sends me a few pictures of the young Link papercraft model he built. The small treasure chest he’s trying to open in this picture, can be found here (but it’s probably just another Small Key again, that you can only use in this dungeon… ;o)

Aaron also built the Clock Town Schnauzer model from my website. When Link is transformed into a Deku Scrub, it growls at you and attacks you, but after Link is transformed back to normal, the both of them get along just fine, as you can see in this picture.

The last picture shows that when Link is not playing with dogs, he likes to play King Arthur and pull swords out of stones. If you want to try yourself, you can download the template for the Master Sword and pedestal here.

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Super Smash Bros. Melee Link by MundoPapercraft1

22-02-2011: My Super Smash Bros. Melee Link is one of the most challenging models I made so far, with a lot of tiny parts.

It took MundoPapercraft1 two weeks to finish it, but I think he did a very good job! You can see a video with more close-ups on his YouTube channel.

MundoPapercraft1 also built my young princess Zelda and Majora’s Mask models, and also models he made from other people, all of which you can see in his DeviantArt gallery!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ paper models!

Cremia’s wagon & mule by Zarra

21-02-2011: One model that’s actually two models! Zarra from Brazil built Cremia’s wagon and the mule from The legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask!

The farmer girl Cremia uses this wagon to deliver her famous Romani Ranch milk to Clock Town, but two bandits keep harassing her during her milk run…

Cremia is very grateful of course when Link helps her fight off the hooded bandits and even when she doesn’t have the Romani Mask anymore, she still gives him a big reward! ;o)

The wagon and mule look very good, and I hope Zarra had fun building them! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Young & Melee Link by Choaslegion

18-02-2011: Choaslegion has to work long hours running his own business, so he can really only do papercraft during work hours.

But even though he has to stop regularly to help customers, Super Smash Bros. Melee Link is the 38th model he built already!

Chaoslegion built the doublesized version, scaled up by Haywan Chiu from the PaperCraft Museum (link).

Here are some more pictures of Choaslegion’s SSB:M Link:
picture 2 | picture 3

Which other models Choaslegion built?

Well, lots of models from all over the internet! But I do know that his second one was my young Link, from Majora’s Mask: picture

Pretty cool indeed! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Young and Fierce Deity Link by Vik Alex Sal

15-02-2011: A picture of Link taken with a Nintendo DSi, how fitting! ;o)

But there’s more to Vik’s papercraft Link than meets the eye! (no, he doesn’t transform or anything… ;o)

If you look closely, you can see that the textures were all coloured by hand; Vik didn’t have a working printer at the time, so he traced the parts directly from his computer screen onto a piece of paper!

That’s some dedication! It must have taken him a lot of time to trace all the parts so precise that they would still fit together, and he did a great job colouring the model too! (the colours really kinda look like the original N64 textures ;o)

Vik did the same with Fierce Deity Link: here’s a picture of the finished model, and here are two pictures before he coloured it: picture 1 | picture 2

For Banjo the bear (from Navi’s Papercraft Archive) though, he went to a friend’s house and printed it there: picture

I am sure it was a lot faster that way! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Paper Mario by Lauren

26-12-2010: only a couple of days after I released it, Lauren already sent me this picture of the paper Mario she built: a very fast and a very good build! ;o)

13-10-2010: after taking a break for a couple of months, Lauren decided to make a new paper model again, and I’m of course very proud that she chose my Majora’s Mask Postman! ;o)

07-01-2010: I don’t know if it’s the extra practice or just her talent for papercraft, but the Underworld wetsuit Lara from Tomb Raider Lauren made after that turned out very good too: picture 1 | picture 2 !

And not only that, but Lauren also decided to build young Link and princess Zelda a second time and do an even better job!

31-12-2009: Lauren sent me some pictures of her Twilight Princess Link !

Although the thinner cardstock she used made it a bit more difficult using the little slots and tabs on the head, I think it looks great! Here you can see it in anticipation for the New Year’s Day fireworks! ;o)

18-10-2009: Here’s a very nice build of Lara’s Extreme Depth Suit (although Lauren couldn’t find a suited transparant sheet to make the helmet visor, the opaque versions looks pretty neat as well! ;o)

And Lauren must be a Simpsons fan as well, because look who we have here: it’s Homer Simpson himself! ;o) And something totally different, but also a great build: she also made my new Final Fantasy Moomba doll!

21-06-2009: I only just uploaded my newest Zora armor Link model two days ago, and Lauren already sent me some new pictures of her completed ZaL! And I know what you’re thinking, but it doesn’t look rushed at all! picture 1 | picture 2 | picture 3

13-04-2009: another non-Zelda model from Lauren, it’s my newest Cloud model. She glued on the legs last so she could work out a good balance, and although she says the hair and fingers gave her some troubles, you wouldn’t say so from just the picture I think, anyway. ;o)

20-01-2009: Lauren revealed to me that Ganondorf and Epona & Link weren’t the first models she made: she also did Fierce Deity Linkyoung princess Zeldayoung Link and Majora’s Mask, Midna and wolf Link, and (surprise! ;o) a non-Zelda model as well, namely, Lara Croft.

18-01-2009: I think we got Lauren pretty well hooked on papercraft now, because so shortly after Ganondorf, she also made Epona & Link (see the picture here) in just 2 days, and she’s already planning the next one! ;o)

14-01-2009: The first pictures Lauren sent me, were of her Ganondorf model, and it was very good one!

She told me she had a lot of fun building him, but I also think you can also tell by the quality of the build! ;o)

It’ll probably come as no surprise to you that Lauren is pretty creative: if you have time you should check out her Deviantart gallery with lots of nice computer paintings including several from the Legend of Zelda!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
