It's time for airliner paper plane again, this time I start with Airbus A380 with Air France Livery. In the wide body AIr France A380 there are of 9 seats first class on the upper deck, 80 seats of business class, 38 seats of premium economy and 435 seats of economy class. Air France received the first of their A380 in November 23, 2009. Paris - New York is the first route for their new A380. Now, Air France is operating 10 of A380 planes. Air France logo in A380 livery was changed from the first they paint it in 2009, the paper model template is already with the latest logo. The new logo looks more slick and modern with the red wing-like ribbon.
Chinese New Year - Wood Goat Papercraft
I was working on Hulkbuster armor suit and then I remember on 19th will be a Chinese New Year. So I made this cute and simple papercraft of a goat, it is representing the animal zodiac sign on lunar new year 2015. It also a wood goat, so I made the display stand textured with wood. Some say it is a sheep some say a goat, they looks pretty similar though. The papercraft only consist of 2 pages. Happy Lunar New Year for all my friends that celebrate it.
BMW Motorsport 2001 ELMS Car Paper Model
This new model was submitted by Sergey Timinsky. He recolored again the BMW M3 GT. This time he paint or draw the model car with a scheme that BMW Motorsport was using. The real with this color scheme was driven by Jörg Müller and J.J. Lehto when participating in 2001 European Le Mans Series (ELMS) that was held in Jarama Spain and won the 5th position.The 2001 ELMS at Jarama was the third race for the 2001 European Le Mans Series season and the fourth round of the American Le Mans Series season (ALMS). ALMS and ELMS are world class touring car competition, it was inspired by 24 Hours of Le Mans, which is 24 hour endurance racing competition that always held in Le Mans France. ALMS however is based in the United States and Canada, so the race is held in the United States. Sergey once again made available the template as 1:16 and 1:24 scale.
This cute model was submitted by Edgardo Rivera. He made a custom minion papercraft again, this time he mixed it with Star Wars, a storminion. Storminion is a minion wearing a stormtrooper armor. Beside recolor a minion template Edgardo also use parts from other papercraft, which is a stormtrooper helmet papercraft from Japanese papercraft designer Tomowo. The original helmet itself can be found at Tomowo's blog. There is no assembly instruction, you will have to figure out yourself by looking at the built photo by Edgardo. The template consist of 3 pages of pattern, the first page is the main minion parts, second page is where the helmet is and the last one is the stormtrooper blaster. There will be new minions movie this year, I can't wait to watch it.
Hulkbuster Paper Model - Torso
Avenger 2 release date will be in May 1st for US audience, it's still 2 months ahead. With the release of torso part, we still need 2 more parts left, which are leg and arm parts. I believe I can finish all the parts on the middle of April. As I mentioned before, I will make a blank template version on part 2 after the released of colored template. In this part, you will need 2 type of paper. Beside regular paper like 120-160 gram paper you will need 2 mm cardboard. I use cardboard to simplify parts that connecting the torso base with the armor plates. With the use of cardboard you can also save time to build this action figure.
You also need to reinforce part 9 and part 16 with cardboard which is drawn as part 90. This papercraft model is modeled using video and images of Hot Toys Hulkbuster action figure as references. Some parts are not very accurate, due to difficulty and for easier build.
