Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II repaints by blake7

31-07-2016: The “Red Baron” was a German fighter pilot in World War I, who was famous because he painted his airplane bright red instead of the usual camouflage pattern.

…and of course because he was a very good fighter pilot, who won almost all his aerial combats!

Although that’s not so impressive of course, when you think allof his enemies were flying in biplanes, and was apparantly piloting a futuristic Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II! ;o)

The original idea for the Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II‘s Red Baron paint scheme was by enc86, and blake7 and Revell Fan did a great job translating it to the papercraft templates, don’t you think?

What’s that? You want to know where you can get the parts to build one yourself? On the original post of course, where you can also find blake7’s other repaints:

Have fun building!

25-06-2016: In “The Dukes of Hazzard”, there would always be a part where “them Duke boys” would escape sherriff rosco by jumping the General Lee over a ramp, high into the air!

But it looks like they took their stunt a little bit too far, and ended up in spacepicture

As always, blake7 shared his repaint so you can build a “Dukes of Hazzard” General Lee version of the Battlestar Galactica Viper as well: link

16-05-2015: If you thought blake7 only made repaints, think again!

Together with Revell-Fan, he worked out how big he should make my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II for it to be in 1:24 scale – and then he did: picture

The picture shows the bigger version next to the regular sized US Navy version. If you want to make a big version like blake7, you can get the parts he made from my original Viper Mk.II post here: link

Or, you can have a look at blake7’s resizing tutorial on the Papermodelers.com forum (note: you need to become a free member to be able to download files there!) so you can learn how to do the same with other paper models you like! ;o)

04-05-2015: During World War II, it was not always easy to see for troops on the ground whether that bomber airplane coming towards them was a friend or an enemy…

So to try and prevent a lot “friendly fire” accidents during the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944, Allied airplanes got three white and two black bands painted on their wings and fuselage.

Of course a space fighter like Battlestar Galactica’s Viper Mk.II doesn’t really need such visual identifiers, but they do look good, don’t they: picture ;o)

Recoloured parts available from my original Viper Mk.II post here: link

16-03-2015: The third finished Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II repaint from blake7, a US Navy VFA-103 “Jolly Rogers” squadron version, complete with skull and crossbones emblem: picture ;o)

As before, you can get the parts to build this version from my original post here: link

22-01-2015: After the Caprica Police version, blake7 sent me a NASA repaint of my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II too: picture

If you like this repaint, you can get the parts from the original Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II post again: link

11-01-2015 update: blake7 sent me an updated version of his Battlestar Galactica Police Viper Mk.II, with higher resolution textures: picture

Here are some comparison pictures between the two versions:

You can get this updated version from the original Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II post again: link

Have fun building!

11-11-2014: Some time ago, blake7 asked me if he could a repaint of my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II, and here it is: picture ! ;o)

It’s based on a drawing made by BJ-023 on DeviantArt (link) and best of all, blake7 even shared the parts he used so you can build this version yourself too! ;o)

You can either get blake7’s repainted parts from the original Viper Mk.II post on my papercraft webpage here, or on the Papermodels.com or Zealot forums if you’re a member there.

Thank you for repainting a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Oogie Boogie by Roy

10-02-2016: Roy from Massachussets built a lot of  plastic Revell model kits in the past, but nowadays, it’s all paper for him! ;o)

The first papercraft model he built was my Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but that one proved a bit difficult for a first time…

He gained a lot of experience since then though, and now his papercraft builds look really good!

(if you don’t believe me, the picture of his Oogie Boogie proves it! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Mario, Link and other papercrafts by Ivana

(click for a bigger picture)

14-01-2016: Ivana from Brazil doesn’t remember exactly when she made the first papercraft in the picture above, but she does remember the order she made them in:

  1. the Master Sword in the pedestal, from The Legend of Zelda (by Xenonray)
  2. Toad, from the Mario series (by Oli Gig I think)
  3. Goku, from Dragon Ball Z (I think by Action Papercrafts)
  4. Link, from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (by me ;o)
  5. the Energy tank from the Metroid series (by Zenith Designs)
  6. Mario (by me again)

For Mario, she didn’t even need to use the instructions! But for Link, she was glad I made them because that one is more difficult…!

For Mario, she sent me bigger picture too: picture

I think it looks pretty good, don’t you? ;o)

She also sent some more pictures of Link, who seems to be admiring the Master Sword in the pedestal: picture

And moments later, the Master Sword has mysteriously disappeared from the pedestal: picture

I think Link took it, but it’s okay of course, since he’s a good guy. ;o)

So you can see that Ivana has taken quite a liking to making papercrafts. She told me she already printed my papercraft Lara Croft from Tomb Raider Legend, and I hope she’ll enjoy making that one too of course! ;o)

Thank you for downloading and building these Ninjatoes’ (and others’ ;o) papercraft models!

Zelda & Tomb Raider papercrafts by Noemie-in-Art

15-03-2016: Noemi-in-art took a break from building paper Laras again, to build a paper Impa! ;o)

She had the right idea that building a “smoother” papercraft is usually a bit less work than having to make all the folds on a “blocky” papercraft, but she overlooked the fact that she had to make all the separate fingers, and even the toes… ;o)

In the end, most parts took her only a day, but the tiny parts took another 2 days…!

Luckily, Noemi-in-art is pretty experienced in papercraft already, just check out her DeviantArt page with more and bigger pictures, and other artworks too! ;o)

09-01-2016: I think it’s safe to say that Noemi-in-Art is just as big a fan of the classic Tomb Raider fan as myself, because you have to be to make so many of my classic Tomb Raider papercrafts!

(and she explains she is in the comments on her DeviantArt posts ;o)

This time, she made my latest one, of Lara Croft in the Atlantean levels of the first Tomb Raider game, confronted by her… clone? picture

The clone, or Lara replica that the evil Natla seemed to have made of Lara didn’t seem quite complete yet though, as it didn’t have any skin

Pretty gruesome if you think about it, even in a 1996 polygonal world – and the origin of the nickname that fans gave her: bacon Lara. ;o)

01-09-2015: Noemie-in-Art shows how much she likes Tomb Raider with a neat strategy-guide, the game of course, and a papercraft of Lara Croft – and two rats: picture ;o)

It’s already a pretty challenging papercraft, with quite a few thin pieces and parts, and what made it even more work for Noemie, was that her printer wasn’t really cooperating when she printed the parts…

So she had to add *every* little shadow herself afterwards, which was a lot of work, but makes it a really unique papercraft of course! ;o)

Noemie also built Cole, from the Legend of Zelda, and several other of my Tomb Raider papercrafts before, and she also does sculptures, drawings and other artworks; you can see it all in her DeviantArt’s page: link! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Epona & Link by SuperRetroBro

16-09-2015: SuperRetroBro built many papercrafts already, and this time he built my Epona & Link, from “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”!

And as you can see, he did a really great job too, because they look very cool from all angles! ;o)

The “SpeedCraft” in the pictures refers to the speedcraft video they made for this build, and that you can see on SuperRetroBro’s YouTube page: link

There, you can also see many other SpeedCraft videos of the other papercrafts on their DeviantArt page.

Now you don’t need to try to build your papercrafts thát fast yourself of course! ;o) Just take your time and they’ll turn out just as great as the ones from SuperRetroBro!

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
