NASA Astronaut Van Paper Model

E-mail Print

Requested by Francisco Javier Montes at Paper Replika Friends Facebook group, I made this NASA astronaut van (Astrovan) to fill a new space category model. The template is quite simple, contains only 2 sheet of paper. When it assembled you will have a nice 1:48 vehicle scale model. NASA used a classic Clark Cortez Couch as the crew transport. I don't know much about the real vehicle background, but from what I read in a photo caption from NASA website, it was used for transporting Apollo XIII astronauts to their rocket (April 1970). I also know from the movie Apollo 13, their mission was a failure, luckily they managed to get back to the earth from the moon orbit. Tom Hanks starred that movie. A good movie, I always love space and astronaut stuff.

Kepler Space Telescope - NASA Spacecraft Paper Model

E-mail Print

This is a NASA spacecraft paper model, a space telescope, launched in 2009 with the solely mission is to help scientist to find habitable planets that are outside our solar system. Earth like planets that have been discovered so far are 77 planets. The templates consist of 4 pages of patterns, I use 1/48 scale on this model. That is a rough scale, it’s not very accurate. And I just realized on Kepler official website there are 3d models of it :p. This model is made from 3d model that I made my self by using photos and pictures as references. You can display this model in two way by using display stand, first just like floating in space with high beam of suspender or on the ground. I made this model because Mars Curiosity model that I made have good feedback. This model also can be use as an educational tool.

Mars Rover Curiosity Paper Model

E-mail Print

This model is another addition for space related paper model. This is the latest Mars exploration rover, it is named Curiosity. Curiosity carried out Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission on Mars surface. MSL was launched using Atlas V541 on 26 November 2011, it expected to land on Mars between 6 to 20 August 2012. Curiosity will search further for scientific rock and soil and micro organism sample if exist in mars. This paper model is not very accurate, I can't find a detail blueprint for this rover, so I have to figure out on how it looks in 3d by looking at NASA video and photos as references. I made a roughly 1:20 scale on this model, the real one is 3 meters in length. The template only contains 3 pages, I recommend to use 120-160 gsm paper. With this release I also made a new category which is space.

SpaceShipTwo and White Knight II Papercraft

E-mail Print

I must build this model, that's the first thought when I first saw this aircraft. So here it is, this paper model templates is ready for download and build. I made in 1/100 scale, the complete model will be 42.7 cm wingspan. Because it's relatively small it doesn't have shape formers, but like other airliner series it still use inner glue tabs. I designed the templates for easier build, so you won't find Dr. Zarkov's kind of model here.

Hasselblad Space Camera Papercraft

E-mail Print

Addon for NASA Astronaut papercraft, it is a Hasselblad Data Camera. This space camera is a modified Hasselblad 500EL. Camera pattern created by Ferdinando Santandrea. He also add some details to astronaut papercraft, such as more detail (3d) valves and brackets, use of electrical cable for umbilical / oxygen hose, replace paper visor with transparent plastic, gold painted with gold marker. He work all of it in about a week, you can see his work on astronaut at PR Gallery.
