Macross Robotech Papercraft

I'm slowly working through all the anime I didnt watch as a kid and Robotech is currently being watched at my place. There are some pretty nice Robotech papercrafts out there in the wild. The one pictured above can be found here

And this transformed mech can be found here (there's a bunch more links on that page too)

And last but not least a SDF 1 Storm Attacker Mode which is absolutely amazing? Grab this here

Have you seen a macross paper model I've missed here? Let me know in the comments.

Papercraft food + Foosball table and other neat crafty things

If you are an avid reader of this site, you will have noticed that I really like ordinary things made out of paper. Yeah robots, gundams, video game characters, guns and so on are all great, but there is something really cool about making everyday stuff from paper. This site is a great example. We've got a kitchen set with scales, a toaster and a cup etc.. Then a camping set with a tent and a bbq. A picnic set, a bunch of biscuits, a pretty sweet car thing (my son would love that) and holy crap a working foosball table made entirely out of paper. Very nice!

Grab them all here, just look for the pdf icon links and enjoy.

Batman Papercraft + Superhero Arts and Crafts!

Batman has alway been a favorite superhero of mine, while growing up I always had my foot firmly planted in the Marvel comics camp, The Avengers, Spider-man etc... But my secret shame among my fellow Marvel aficionados was the odd Batman comic, that and the camp sixties TV Show played constantly when I was a  kid. Anyways Paperollies has a pretty awesome Batman papercraft for you in his amazing series of SuperPaperMen which you can grab here.

If Superman is more your cup of tea then you can grab him here. Check the homepage too for some other great paper model goodies

Paper Crafts For Kids

I know from personal experience how hard it can be to keep the little people in your life entertained, particularly if like me you live in a country where winter just seems to drag on and on.

So I thought I would dig out some easy, fun and damn cute paper models for that crafty kid in your life. Hey even if they get bored and want to watch cartoons at least you have something to do rather than watching Toy Story for the 30th time that week.

Amazon has these great little robots called Piperoids, there are many different versions to collect, they are all high quality and each have a story behind them, excellent for teaching kids about constructing things themselves

Animal Matching Puzzle made from paper of course!
A papery (is that a real word?) take on a classic matching game, could be a great gift for the kid who has too much plastic crap in his or her life. If you had the skills you could even customize it yourself.

Build your own Paper Town
As usual the Canon site has some great high quality papercrafts that are perfect for kids. There is a lot of variety here, from cars to buildings to a ferris wheel.

Paper Box World
These are great, such a simple concept that has been pulled of really well due to the bright vibrant colors and variety. Sweet, get some now.

There are heaps more great paper arts and crafts projects for kids of all ages out there in that big thing we call the internet. Have fun!

Samurai Gundam Paper Model

Two things that are awesome. Samurai and SD Gundams. Combine those and you have something truly special.

You know what else is awesome - papercraft, but hey why stop there, let's take it up another notch of awesome - free papercraft!

So what do we have here, Samurai SD Gundam Free Papercraft! Holy crap.

Get it here and don't forget to have a browse around the rest of this site for some more goodness.

Full Metal Alchemist - Alphonse Papercraft

Late to the party as usual I only started watching Full Metal Alchemist in the last couple of months. It's a damn fine anime (and I presume excellent manga). My favorite character would have to be Alphonse Elric, stuck inside a big intimidating metal suit, this guy has a heart of a pacifist. Of course there is a sweet papercraft of the big dummy! Courtesy of Tamasoft, you'll need the PDO viewer.
