This model may looks familiar for those who ever saw my own depiction of Illuminati pyramid model. That was just my imagination though, but this latest pyramid model is a real deal. This so called "pyramid capstone" can be seen on museum on Cairo, Egypt. According to some articles about pyramid that I have read, the pyramids in their time was not like jagged stone bricks like we seen in our time. Those pyramids some covered with white limestone with smooth surface, and clean look, like modern building today. On the top of each pyramids there were a capstone, some made by red granite. There is one black granite that belongs to a King from Middle Kingdom (12th Dynasty : 1860 BC to 1814 BC), the name was written on that capstone, he is Amenemhet III. There's also inscriptions on it that says "Amenemhet beholds the perfection of Re". Re is the Ancient Egyptian Sun God.
NASA Astronaut Van Paper Model
Requested by Francisco Javier Montes at Paper Replika Friends Facebook group, I made this NASA astronaut van (Astrovan) to fill a new space category model. The template is quite simple, contains only 2 sheet of paper. When it assembled you will have a nice 1:48 vehicle scale model. NASA used a classic Clark Cortez Couch as the crew transport. I don't know much about the real vehicle background, but from what I read in a photo caption from NASA website, it was used for transporting Apollo XIII astronauts to their rocket (April 1970). I also know from the movie Apollo 13, their mission was a failure, luckily they managed to get back to the earth from the moon orbit. Tom Hanks starred that movie. A good movie, I always love space and astronaut stuff.
Tukul Arwana - Comedian Paper Craft
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.
Sword Impulse Gundam Paper Model - Part 5 (Final)
This is the last of 5 parts, with this weapon kit the Gundam is complete. The weapons are not as complicated as they are seen. I have simplify many parts for easier and stress-free build.

The template contains 13 pages of patterns for build a rifle, a shield, two swords, a boomerang and a booster backpack. Next big poject is continuing Jaeger Striker Eureka model, also Cristiano and Suraj will still continue their Iron man Gemini and Gypsy Danger Jaeger model.
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.
