Link, Mario, LEGO C-3PO, Kim Possible, NES Zapper, Batman, Lulu, Barack Obama and lots more by Richard (and Kristine ;o)

17-10-2018: Who wants to build papercrafts when it’s so warm and sunny like it was last Summer? Not Richard! ;o)

In fact, he didn’t papercraft for months, but now it’s Fall, he felt the itch to papercraft something again, and that something was Twilight Link: picture 2 | picture 3

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)

06-02-2018: Normally, Richard builds papercrafts that he knows, but even though he never played Final Fantasy X, he liked my papercraft Lulu so much that he decided to try it anyway: picture

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!

This time, Richard had the help of his sister Kristine, making this papercraft Batman as a holiday project together: picture

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)

24-11-2017: Richard has been playing Super Mario 64 lately, and couldn’t resist building Paper Mario 3D: picture

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!

19-10-2017: How cool is that! Richard is fairly new to papercraft, but he already made not only LEGO C-3PO, but also Kim Possible and the NES Zapper:

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!

Star Trek runabout, Star Wars TIE-fighter and TIE-interceptor re-vamps and Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II and Cylon Raider by Loenf

18-04-2013: Did you know that Loenf likes science-fiction movies and series? Well, maybe all the papercraft models he likes to build should have been a clue! ;o)

This time Loenf built the Star Trek Deep Space Nine runabout, more specifically, the repainted version from Paul McCool!

My originally model was drawn by hand and coloured with aquarel, and it was huge! ;o) Although the repainted version is the same size, Loenf printed it at half that size to make a smaller, 260 mm version: picture 2 | picture 3

And with all his experience as a modeller, Loenf also made a very neat technological looking display stand that really suits the model: picture 4 | picture 5

So yeah, what more to say? It’s a great job by both Paul McCool and Loenf! ;o)

30-11-2012: Here’s a surprise for you! (or maybe not so much, if you have been following Loenf’s papercrafting threads on Papermodelers.com: thread 1 | thread 2 ;o)

Loenf had already re-vamped and built my papercraft Star Wars TIE-fighter a little while ago, and he had promised to tidy up the templates he used and share them with the rest of us, but he also made a TIE-interceptor version: picture 1 !

Re-using the modular command pod and wing pylons and making two new wings, the result is really good I think: picture 2 | picture 3 ! ;o)

The TIE-interceptor is an updated version of the TIE-fighter, with more fire power, greater speed and higher maneuverability thanks to the dagger-like wings that also give it its extra menacing look…

Loenf put a lot of work into re-vamping my original, papercraft hand drawn TIE-fighter model and he did a great job so I’m sure you’ll like it! ;o)

The biggest difference in Loenf’s re-vamped models is in the wings, but he also simplified the cockpit interior a bit, and instead of making a movable top hatch, he made it so that you can simply glue it down.

Loenf didn’t re-draw all the glueing tabs, so don’t forget to cut your own! (or create your own method to join the parts together ;o)

You can get the parts and instructions to build Loenf’s re-vamped TIE-fighter and TIE-interceptor directly from my papercraft webpage in my original TIE-fighter post here: link

And Loenf also plans to upload the files to the Papermodelers.com and Zealot forums: link and link

(you need to be a member there to access the download sections on those forums, though!)

If you do decide to build it, Loenf would love to see the result! ;o)

Have fun building!

03-11-2012: If you already saw Loenf’s work on my papercraft Battlestar Galactica Viper Mark 2 and Cylon Raider, you will not be surprised with the great work he did on my papercraft Star Wars TIE-fighter too: picture

Unlike my Battlestar Galactica models though, the parts for my papercraft Star Wars TIE-fighter were all drawn by hand and coloured using aquarel.

But because Loenf wanted it to have a computer-made look, he did a lot of work re-drawing and re-painting all the parts on the computer first!

He also modified the wings a bit, making them a little thinner, and reinforcing them with some corrugated cardboard to increase their stiffness.

Not surprisingly, he did a great job, as you can see for yourself: picture 2 | picture 3

Loenf’s has also uploaded some more pictures of his re-drawn TIE-fighter (and lots more great papercraft models he built!) to his Loenforama site: link

Loenf also posted his re-drawn TIE-fighter pictures in the Paper Modelers forum: link (you need to be a member there to see the attached pictures, though)

29-01-2011: After his fantastic build of my Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.2 model, Loenf now also made the Cylon Raider: picture 1

Here’s another picture of the two together: picture 2

He found the wings a little bit difficult to build, he says, but I think they look great now, and here are some more pictures to prove it! ;o)

Update: if you want to see more pictures of Loenf’s Viper Mk.2 and Cylon Raider, you can visit his Loenforama website, with several more papercraft dioramas from series like Aliens, Star Trek, Star Wars and more!

14-01-2011: It’s his first build of this year, he says, but I’m sure Loenf has built “a few” paper models before…! ;o)

His Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II build looks simply amazing! Here are some pictures: picture 1picture 2

It was done by Loenf, and not only did he a fantastic job building it, he also modified the cockpit so you can look inside!

He used transparant foil for the canopy, and built the cockpit interior himself completely from scratch!

Here are some close-ups of the cockpit and engines:

You can read a bit more about his modifications on PaperModelers.com, but you can’t view the pictures there unless you are a member, unfortunately…

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

TIE-fighter by Axel

05-02-2013: Axel sent me few pictures of the papercraft Star Wars TIE-fighter that he finished last Friday!

As you can see, Axel built my hand drawn version, and he says it could have been a bit more polished, but he did a great job building it and he likes the result! ;o)

Here’s a picture from the back, with a view of the solar ionization reactor and the Twin Ion Engines that give the TIE-fighter its name: picture

And here’s another, very special effects picture: picture ;o)

Industrial Light & Magic look out, you’re not the only ones doing special effects for Star Wars anymore! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
