Custom AR Drone 2.0 Outdoor hull : NASA Theme

E-mail Print

This template specially made for AR Drone 2.0 pilots who want to customized their drone hull. It is when my hobbies merged together, piloting AR Drone 2.0 and paper modeling. It’s started when Parrot gave me a unit of the new version 2 drone as a gift for my involvement in their promotion campaign, which is a paper model contest in this site in July 2012. Since that time I decided to do this hobby and now I have two drones. I made a 1:3 AR Drone 2.0 with both outdoor and indoor hull model for that contest. That one third model is not accurate so I made a new one with 1:1 scale by measuring the original hull, so it will fit into the real drone. I made the template last night, print it today and build it just now. I took some picture of it while it still on the ground and while flying as well.  I took pictures while the drone in auto-hover mode on quite strong breeze, but I had to do that before it’s getting dark (5 PM). Please understand this hull can not function like the original hull. It can not  protect the battery and specially the front mounted camera on impact or in a crash, it's light weight but it is not strong enough. Make sure to tighten the hull to the drone base because it can loose by the strong wind, you can use magnet sheet but I use double adhesive tape. Once again use it by understanding your own risk, I can not guaranty it will work to everybody. I also add blank patterns on the the last pages.

Glundung Pringis - Supernatural Creature Paper Craft

E-mail Print

This one is a Halloween themed paper craft. Glundung Pringis (Javanese) or "Rolls and Grinds" is a type of supernatural entity, it's not like an ancient myth which apart in distance past, this creature was last seen and was reported in 1965 in central Java according to a book about Java supernatural creatures, unfortunately I didn't remember exactly the title of the book and the name of the author, but I remember it's in English and the author is an American expatriate. I also heard about this creature beside other creatures from my parent stories when they were kids in Yogyakarta. This creature is mainly a head, or whole body looks like a head. According to the book, it's not as like as many people and articles said, this creature is not a human head. It's pretty bigger than normal human head with wider mouth line, but it's not human. Its favorite playground is on the ground where bamboo leaves lies as a soft carpet under bamboo trees. Its behavior rolling around and playing on the ground. There was some encounter with human being with this creature in the wild, it rolls, stops and grinding :D, funny huh?

Amenemhet III - Black Granite Pyramidion Paper Model

E-mail Print

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.

WWII Tiger I Tank Paper Model

E-mail Print

I made this model tank as a tribute to my fellow paper model designer as a hobby, Yudhi Kistyarto. His last work in progress was this Tiger tank as you can see on the screenshot below, that's his actual work on Tiger tank 3d model on Google Sketchup. He never got a chance to continue it, he passed away a year ago. I got this file from Christopher (Bamboogila Corner), Yudhi shared it to Chris for learning purpose, back then. When Chris informed me that he got Yudhi's file, suddenly I had an idea to continue Yudhi's work. I planned to make a simple Tiger, but apparently I can't help it to make it a little bit detail, so the final result is a semi detailed model. The scale is 1:35, not too big nor small, just right I think.  I simplified the wheels, so the inner row wheels that are not visible are not modeled, just the visible parts.  The tracks come in 2 options, detailed and simple, it's your call. Its turret is rotate-able, but its cannon angle is fixed on level position. I choose Tiger 131 from Bovington museum, United Kingdom as the color scheme, because that Tiger is the only Tiger I tank that still can be running today, the only one, so I think that's special. Other colored scheme also opened for the next projects when the master patterns is done.
