27-03-2015: Pablo from Mexico got the Nendoroid Wind Waker Link figurine, and he thought my papercraft King of Red Lions boat would make a great way to display it! ;o)
He had to search very hard for good paper to build the model, but eventually he found some pasteboard that worked very well as you can see.
The King of Red Lions was the first papercraft model that he built, and it was very difficult, especially the head and neck: even using pliers for the small parts didn’t make it much easier…!
Luckily, Pabo’s girlfriend has some ninja skills folding paper, and she helped him a lot figuring out how some of the pieces were supposed to fit.
In the end, it took Pablo about 4 weeks to complete, listening to a lot of old podcasts while working. But once it was finished, he was very proud of it! ;o)
His grandmother even wanted to have it to put it on her piano, but Pablo wanted to keep it himself as a diorama for his Nendoroid Link.
His friends really liked the paper boat it too, and they even wanted the printouts so they could try it as well. But Pablo hopes they know what they’re getting into with such a challenging model… ;o)
Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
