Finally after a week of weighing the good work of all the participants in the Parrot Jumping Sumo Papercraft Contest, we have a winner. This time it was the hardest judging I've ever done, all the work almost as well, as creative. Some are very good and deserve to be the winner but strayed too far from the theme, which is wheeled drones. The winner is Retno Wahyuningrum with score 88. Judging is based on appearance, creativity, presentation and quality of the assembly. I think that Retno work is the most well made and also has a personality. Jumping sumo is a mini drone that has personality, he could be a cute little monster, or even a naughty little robot. Here are two other works, Susanto B Adittyo with score 85 and Reza Ongo Nalendra with score 81. As already mentioned in the contest rules, the winner and only one person will receive the prize of a Sumo Jumping. Thanks to all participants who have submitted work.
Sherman "Fury" M4A3E8 Tank Paper Model
As a fan of armored vehicles, especially tanks, Fury is must watch movie. In fact I have not watched this movie yet lol. Since I had the second children, now aged 2 years I have never been able to watch in the cinema again. Friends of the RC tank community had watched it together, but I can not participate. I read the internet that the main plot of this film is the legendary battle between the two tanks, Sherman tank of the United States and the legendary Tiger tank of Germany in World War II. I also know that this film is the only Hollywood film that uses the original Tiger tank, not a replica nor prop. OK, back to the Sherman paper model. In Fury movie, the Sherman that use is M4A3E8 type, or usually called as Easy Eight. This Sherman is different from the other Sherman, bigger tracks, bigger gun. Actually this model tank can be finished last week. But after the model is finished, it felt a bit bland, because something is missing. This tank needs the crew, in order to truly represent the Fury movie. You can build this Sherman with or without the crew. The scale is 1:30.
Optimus Prime AoE Paper Craft - Final Part
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
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
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.
