17-05-2020: Tomek from Poland sent me several pictures of the papercraft U.S.S. Defiant that he built!
From the looks of it I think it is the redraw version that Bill Perry made of my original hand drawn papercraft, and it looks like Tomek added some extra details of himself too, like weathering the exhaust vents and thickening and off-setting some of the pieces for added depth! :o)
The end result looks very good, and it’s great to hear that he had a fun time building it!
Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
Link, Mario, LEGO C-3PO, Kim Possible, NES Zapper, Batman, Lulu, Barack Obama and lots more by Richard (and Kristine ;o)
23-03-2019: Richard did it again! He built another really nice papercraft, and this time it’s Cloud, in the Kingdom Hearts version!
He’s originally from the Final Fantasy series though of course, where he’s famous for his huge “buster sword” – in fact even the papercraft version is so heavy, that he decided to put it down for a little bit: picture ;o)
It’s another great build by Richard, whose only problem now he says that he “doesn’t know where to put them anymore…” ;o)
17-10-2018: Who wants to build papercrafts when it’s so warm and sunny like it was last Summer? Not Richard! ;o)
07-03-2018: Richard’s friend is a big Obama fan, so Richard decided to build a papercraft LEGO Obama for her as a gift: picture ;o)
You can see that I don’t have a papercraft Obama LEGO minifig though, so he recoloured my Luke Skywalker to make it. ;o)
To save time, Richard left out all the inner parts that are quite tricky to build sometimes and take a lot of extra work. So LEGO Obama can’t move his arms and legs like my other papercraft minifigs, but he looks great for the picture of course! ;o)
It took him four weeks of work at a regular pace. And although he says some parts like the hands were hard to build for him and that he would like to “build them as clean” as me, I think he’s a bit exaggerating because his papercraft Lulu looks amazing, especially in her photoshopped setting! (I’m half expecting a big Ragora to pop up from the background! – not that that would worry Lulu of course, since she’d just Firaga the hell out of it ;o)
02-01-2018: Well, it looks like Batman is warning us beforehand not to make any trouble on the streets of Gotham, or else… :o!
It was not easy, especially the head and hands, but I must say they did a good job on making him look so intimidating to any evildoers: picture ;o)
He says he didn’t find it very difficuly to build, except maybe the hand. ;o) But as you can see, he managed, and Paper Mario 3D is quite as part of his growing papercraft collection: picture!
Some parts like C-3PO’s head and hands were tricky, but as you can see, he did an impressive job! ;o)
Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other peoples’!) papercraft models!
08-02-2019: This time, I received a really nice email from Helen, telling me how much she enjoys building papercrafts!
Because she considers herself still a “novice” papercrafter, she finds the step-by-step pictures I try to make to make instructions for my papercrafts very useful; for now, she likes to build cute papercrafts that are usually also a bit simpler for beginners. But as you can see, I think she managed to build my papercraft Chancellor Cole very well! ;o)
It’s extra impressive, because she actually made Chancellor Cole half the size as normal, which makes the parts even smaller…! Because Chancellor Cole has such small feet, she glued a small transparant piece of plastic so he won’t fall over.
Helen also has another tip: she stuffs her papercrafts with pieces of bubble wrap packaging she has left over (after bursting the bubbles first of course, which must be fun to do in itself as well! ;o) so that the papercrafts will be more solid and stronger when put together.
If you look closely, you will see something else special, though: Helen has decorated Chancellor Cole’s hats with some little gemstones (and apparantly he also found a really big gem which makes him very happy ;o) This way, he fits in very nicely with some of Helen’s real figurines: picture
That’s another thing Helen likes to do: creating little “fairy tale” scenes with the papercrafts she made. She sent me a picture of some of the displays with other papercrafts she made: picture
I think the little sceneries look very nice, and it’s a smart way to display and enjoy the papercrafts she made! ;o)
Thank you for your nice story and for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
