Optimus Prime AoE Paper Craft - Final Part

E-mail Print

It was the end of my trip in designing paper model template for Transformers 4 Optimus Prime. I am very relieved with the completion of this model, because there are many interesting models models I need to make after this, such as, iron man hulkbuster, new upcoming minions movie, and others. In this final section, I close it by releasing the arm and a sword. In the assembly instructions I give specific instructions for Optimus right arm. The left side is the same as the right but in opposite direction. I also give two pages of patterns for the arms part that not holding the sword. So you can choose 2 pose, that is a pose that both arms are holding a sword and both arms pose hanging on the side. Both poses use many of the same part, only a few different key parts. Enjoy this paper model and thank you for all your supports and inputs in the making this paper model template.

Rosetta Philae Comet Lander Paper Model

E-mail Print

I feel excited when I read that scientists from European and US managed to land a lander on the surface of a comet that was currently wandering the space in 135,000 km/h speed. The comet is named  67P. It took 10 years (2004-2014) to intercept this comet before the mothership Rosetta finally managed to release the Philae lander to the comet's surface. Mothership Rosetta continues to orbit the comet until now. Before it's entering hibernation mode,  its sensor could detect the presence of organism molecules and took some pictures. Currently Philae is not in operation. They said we have to be patient until August 2015 when the surface which comet lander sits is facing the sun, so that its solar panels can provide the power back and continue to explore the comet surface. The paper model is consist of 4 pages of patterns. You will need 2 types of paper to build this, a plain one about 100-160 gsm and 3 mm thick cardboard. The scale of this Philae lander model is about 1:10.

Interstellar Ranger Spacecraft Paper Model

E-mail Print

Actually this scale model was not in my plans. I stumbled upon its picture when I browse for Philae lander spacecraft pictures. I think this would be a good model if I make a paper model template. According to the data that I read in a website, this ranger spacecraft is 54 meters long. I made a model with 27 cm long, so the scale is about 1: 200. This spacecraft is appear on the latest science fiction movie Interstellar. It can accommodate 4 crews plus 1 robot. The director of the movie, Christopher Nolan demanded the use of 3d printed miniature models of this ship rather than CG model in his movie. He also use real scene and environment and 1:1 spacecraft model. This movie was praised among scientists and science fiction fans around the world.

Sandtrooper 1:6 Star Wars Paper Model

E-mail Print

This is my first model in 2015. I usually break a figure paper model into several parts, but this time I release the template in just a file. Perhaps there will be a blank template for it, if I got the time. A Sandtrooper is a desert stormtrooper. Sandtrooper armor looks the same as their fellow the other stormtroopers, but with a little bit different in detail. They also have distinctive dirty looked or heavy weathered instead of shiny armor like the stormtroopers have. Their first appearance was in Star Wars IV : A New Hope. Sandtrooper also wore pauldron. Each pauldron color represents a military rank.  This orange one is representing a squad leader, which usually consist of 7 desert stormtroopers. When on duty, the squad usually bring heavy weapons and backpacks with them.

Ancient Quimbaya Airplane

E-mail Print

This artifact is some kind of jewelry made from gold. It was found on Colombia, it was dated around 1000 CE. It was made by the Quimbaya civilization, a pre-Colombian culture in South America. It was found together with other shape of gold works. The airplane design shape often made it associated with advanced technology from ancient time by many ancient astronaut theorists. Archeologist believed it was part of zoomorphic, animal shape objects. In 1994,  Peter Belting and Conrad Lubbers created an RC aircraft using this Quimbaya airplane shape and it could fly. In my opinion, I am an RC aircraft maker too, from what I learned whatever the shape as long as it has wing, power and have the correct balance on the Central of Gravity the airplane will flying, even you can make a lawn mower shape to fly. I think it's more like a flying fish than an airplane.
