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.
Honda Civic Type-R R3 Paper Model
I just bought a second handed RC car, a Tamiya TT01. It came with a broken Mazda RX7 body. It gave me an idea to make a body from paper model that will fit on that 257 mm wheelbase chassis, so there are no interior parts in it. Then a friend of mine gave me suggestions for a cool rally car, finally I fixed my decision to make this Honda Civic Type R R3 paper model because it looks very cool, and because the rims are the same as the rims on my RC model car. Although this paper model was specifically designed for TT01 body, it also can be assembled as a stand alone paper model because I also provide patterns for wheels. The complete model will has 41 cm length and 13 cm height. The livery of this Honda Civic was designed by JAS Motorsport, an Italian racing team. I add a watermark on every images on this post, because I received many reports about some of Paper Replika's model were sold in eBay, which is supposed to be free for download.
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.
Gru - Despicable Me Paper Craft
This template was submitted by Suraj S Prakash. He wanted this template to be published on paper-replika.com. When he post about this Gru from Despicable Me 3D animation movie paper craft in Peri Facebook Group, I thought this will be a nice paper craft and it is. The complete model is about 25 cm in height, the template itself contains 4 pages of patterns. There is no assembly instructions in images as usual, but don't worry Suraj has included a pdo file as an instructions. In pdo there are some flipped patterns, you can find the correct template in the PDF file.
