I made this model tank as a tribute to my fellow paper model designer as a hobby, Yudhi Kistyarto. His last work in progress was this Tiger tank as you can see on the screenshot below, that's his actual work on Tiger tank 3d model on Google Sketchup. He never got a chance to continue it, he passed away a year ago. I got this file from Christopher (Bamboogila Corner), Yudhi shared it to Chris for learning purpose, back then. When Chris informed me that he got Yudhi's file, suddenly I had an idea to continue Yudhi's work. I planned to make a simple Tiger, but apparently I can't help it to make it a little bit detail, so the final result is a semi detailed model. The scale is 1:35, not too big nor small, just right I think. I simplified the wheels, so the inner row wheels that are not visible are not modeled, just the visible parts. The tracks come in 2 options, detailed and simple, it's your call. Its turret is rotate-able, but its cannon angle is fixed on level position. I choose Tiger 131 from Bovington museum, United Kingdom as the color scheme, because that Tiger is the only Tiger I tank that still can be running today, the only one, so I think that's special. Other colored scheme also opened for the next projects when the master patterns is done.
Life Size RPG-7 Launcher Paper Model
This model is a request from Paper Replika new Facebook group, Paper Replika Friends. On that group you can discuss about every model made by Paper Replika and also you can make suggestion or request of model that you like and want to be made as paper model pattern. Every request will still filter by me, and only approved requests will be made. This RPG-7 paper model template contains 30 pages of patterns. The scale is 1:1, so I also made its inner construction. The warhead can be detach but with simplified model. I recommend to use 200 gsm paper and thicker for its inner constructions. This Soviet portable unguided rocket missile is very popular heavy weapon among armed forces in many countries. Some countries copied its design or reproduce under license.
NASA Astronaut Van Paper Model
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.
Plastic Chair and Table Paper Model
So.. I made 2 chairs and a table paper model Why? Just need to do simple model in a boring time. Also I just bought one of real life white ordinary plastic chairs. Sometimes when you look at an empty chair in an empty room or in a wide space, your brain imagines someone invisible sits there or someone was sitting there, there's like an energy comes from that chair, do you feel the same? or just me :p. The scale is unknown, only one sheet of pattern.
Equator Monument - Pontianak Paper Model
There are many equatorial monuments around the world, in many countries that pass by the imaginary equator line. There is one monument built in West Borneo, in the city of Pontianak. It is named "Tugu Katulistiwa" or Equator Monument in English. This monument was first built by a Dutch geographer in 1928 and completed in 1930. In 1938 was rebuilt by architect Silaban but still maintaining its original monument still visible in the interior, then it was finally renovated in 1990 and completed in 1991. However equator line is not fixed, now the monument is not on the equator anymore. It has moved slightly southwards. This model template was designed by Nanda Blank, this monument is in his city he lives. This monument is a landmark of Pontianak, and Nanda hopes this model will be kind a remembrance of home for the people of Pontianak who lived outside the island or abroad. This model height is 27 cm, the template contains 5 pages and 2 pages of assembly instructions.
