Table Top Gaming Papercraft

This is a great set of models for the table top gamers out there, a nice collection of props for those epic miniature battles - there are floor plans, a couple of vehicles and my favorites - some really well done buildings. A very handy resource indeed.

Papercraft DNA

This papercraft would make a great science fair project or just something to put in your office or house, it's a paper model of Deoxyribonucleic acid or as us none science types know it - DNA. According to Wikipedia DNA is: "a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms". Grab it from this page, look for the link that says A4...

Papercraft Girl in Bikini

I still find it kind of bizarre that models like this exist :) But they do. The internet is a very large place and there is room for all sorts of things to exist and in this case it's a great looking papercraft of a girl in a bikini, and if that's not safe for your work environment there is an optional top to put on her.

There's an .lzh file about half way down the page - look for the link in blue that says LZH in the title :)

DOTA Papercraft

I've mentioned Warcraft Papercraft around here before but HobiKit has taken it one step further by creating paper models of DOTA characters, pretty cool. Apparently there are more models to come which won't just be limited to Warcraft. Keep an eye on this site people!

Washing Machine Transformer Papercraft

Jonah was kind enough to send through this great Transformer Washing Machine Papercraft (Yup it actually transforms). It certainly brought a smile to my face when I first saw it. This paper model embodies everything good about The Transformers - Robots that transform into everyday objects... and it's a Decepticon to boot ;) nice one Jonah!

Grab the model here - Don't forget to check out the 'Sockbot' too!

Cubeecraft Papercraft

Some cute and well created paper models are available from Cubeecraft, apparently a new model every week! They all have interlocking tabs for easy construction, no need for glue, which is a nice change :) Excellent stuff, I'm going to keep my eyes on this one week by week to see what they release next.

Grab them here.
