The last Christmas themed paper models I made was 3 years ago, in 2009. Two years in a row I did not have enough time to make it in time. This time I made an early start at the beginning of the month. The spirit of Christmas is everywhere already, so I have more than enough inspiration to make a paper craft for this 2012 Christmas. This time I made a Santa's vehicle other than the usual, which is a biplane. It is manned by 3 people, Santa as a pilot and two elves sit in the left and right wings. Their job is to drop gifts to the good kid, they tied a parachute on each gifts. The biplane is equipped with sleigh so it capable of snowy surface landing.

Mercedes Benz Smart Cabrio Paper Model
This model as I may say is the first detailed paper model of a car that I ever made. I was inspired to make this cute mini car when I was playing a game in my Galaxy tab inside a toilet and I saw a shampoo product advertisement which feature this Mercedes Benz Smart Fortwo car as the main prize. Then I searched on Google about this car and decided to make the model. If you have build some of Paper Replika models you should say this model is quite simple. All the detailed texture make this model looks complicated but I believe it is not. If you follow the instructions orderly, you will have no problem building it. At first I make this model in 1/24 scale but on the second thought I changed it to 1/16.
Scout Trooper Style Danboard Paper Craft
This pattern was submitted by Arie Originz. He made his own creation of Star Wars scout trooper style Danboard / Danbo. He numbered this template, 13. It kooks like he already made a bunch of paper crafts using this "danboard" like figure. Danboard or Danbo is a very popular character among anime and manga enthusiasts. Although the figure shape only boxes with minimalistic face, it like it contains a live in it. Arie also made this paper craft articulated. The pattern is in JPG in RAR file.
Unicorn Gundam Shield and Bazooka 5X Bigger Paper Model
As you may notice the unicorn shield pattern that have previously been released was not complete. Finally someone did it, Lee Gunawan send the pattern to me, plus he also had to enlarge the pattern of Hyper Bazooka. But the pattern that Lee made is in A3 size, so it can not be printed with the regular home printer (A4/letter format), the printer must be larger printer (A3). Photos below are Lee Gunawan with his Unicorn shield and bazooka at his home garage and Elysa Littrell with Lee's Bazooka paper model in JAPAN OVERDRIVE "GRAND FUSION" event Surabaya.
Kepler Space Telescope - NASA Spacecraft Paper Model
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.
