This paper craft template was specially designed for Mr. Tukul Arwana the host of "Bukan Empat Mata" on Trans-7 television talk-show. Last week I had guests from Trans-7 crew who covered about paper model, paper crafting hobby at my house. There are also friends who accompanied me from Perikertas (Peri) on that interview. As you can see on the photo below, Reza Rauf Raphanus, a Paper Replika store admin and also a Perikertas event manager interviewed by Marcella Lumowa, she is a co-host at that television show. I also interviewed on that day as a paper craft designer, but as usual I wore my scout trooper armor and helmet :p. So I'm not really sure that scene will be aired, but if it does, it would be super cool :p. This template is quite simple, with only 3 sheets of paper you can build this paper craft.
Berlin Golden Hat Paper Model
Berlin Golden Hat is an ancient artefact found in Southern Germany. It is made of a thin gold sheet and according to historian it was made in Bronze Age 3000 years ago, 1000 BC. Study shows the symbols or patterns around the hat are some sort of calendars, both solar and lunar calendar. This is one of four gold hat or cone which found in Europe. It is now in the Neues Museum in Berlin. I first found out about this from watching a tv show called Museum Secret in BBC Knowledge channel. This is my first paper model template in 2014, to fill the ancient history category.
I want to look back Paper Replika in 2013, I kind of regret I didn't as productive as in 2012. I admit, I was a bit disoriented. There's a time when Paper Replika has new template design every week, but it was not happening in 2013. So here is my resolution, I will put more time and more focus on paper model in 2014. 2014, I like the sound of it. Happy New Year to you all.
King Tiger (Tiger II) Tank Paper Model
This very nice tank paper model template was submitted by our Korean friend, Kim. Kim presented a model of one of the famous tanks in world war II era, a German tank called King Tiger by the Allied or Königstiger by the Germans. It also called Tiger II, because it is an improvement from the formidable design of the legendary Tiger tank (Tiger I). King Tiger is bigger and stronger than Tiger I, it uses slope side armor on its turret like the Panther tank used which made it even more untouchable than Tiger I. The official name for this tank is Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B.
This tank was short-lived, only 1 year in combat service (1944-1945), it was involved in the biggest tank battle of WWII, the "Battle of the Bulge" in winter 1944. The template consists of 7 patterns with 2 pages of assembly instructions included inside. The original template size is 25 MB, it's too big compare to Paper Replika template file's size, so I have to compress the file in just 2,5 Mb. It was designed by paperhino and gigaia and was build by Superdunk. They are all a member of paper model club, HardCraft. You can find them on their hangout forum : HARDCRAFT.
Smart Grid City Building Paper Craft
On the December 2013 I was commissioned to design paper craft templates for Ind Japan Expo 2013 exhibition. The exhibition was about Smart Grid City, a city with efficient power system and uses green energy. My friend Rauf Raphanus and I were work on the templates, Rauf worked on the transportation system paper craft and I worked on city buildings paper craft. I wanted to share with you some of the templates, there are : houses, battery storage building, solar panel installation, windmill electricity generator, warehouse, dock and boats.
There are still more buildings such as government building, commercial building, skyscraper and other tall buildings, but I don't share them because they are too big to fit into A4 paper. All models are very simple. All the templates were used one time only for making a miniature city for that exhibition, and now I allowed to share them with you. Because I was not intended to made these for Paper Replika release, so there is no assembly instructions. All photos by Putri Ayu Pratami.
