When I watched Discovery Channel about French Foreign Legion, I thought this might be a nice subject for papersoldier series. This legion is one of a kind, the only elite force which comprise about 40 nationalities Legion,as a brothers in arms served the Legion, France. They joined the legendary force for honor. The Legion first formed in 1831 by French King Louis Philippe. The paper craft kit include a distinctive Legion's weapon a FAMAS F1. Most of the part of this paper craft are the same as other papersoldier except the weapon.
Costa Pacifica Cruise Ship Paper Model
This is Costa Pacifica model, one of 4 luxurious Concordia class cruise ships owned by Italian operator Costa Cociere. They are 4 sister ships, Concordia, Pacifica, Serena and Favolosa. This paper model is very simple and has only a couple of page to print. I use 1:1200 scale for this 24 cm model of 290 meter ship. Few days ago a friend of mine wrote in my Facebook wall, he said "next model will be Costa Concordia". In that time I didn't know what that is, so I Google that words and found out it is a cruise ship that had an accident at sea. I continue search for images of that ship and finally decided to make the template of that beautiful ship as I begin to like creating boat paper model template. I still didn't realize, there are people still missing and found dead aboard on that ship until a couple friend responds on my status on the design progress with disapointment and protest. They were right, I have no respectful motivation to release the Concordia ship, so I change it to Costa Pacifica one of 4 identical ship.
How to Replace Face Texture on Your War Machine Paper Model
This is the first time I made a customized paper model, I mean almost because the only part that can be customized is just the face on your Iron Man 2 War Machine paper model that already released earlier. We're going to learn how to do that. It will be done by using Pepakura viewer and bitmap editing software such as Photoshop or others. I'm not going to share how to use Photoshop here, I'm going to focusing only on Pepakura. Download the file in the end of this article, we have 2 files, a pdo and a bitmap file in JPG. To change the face is easy, just simply replacing the face on face.jpg with your own. Then reload the texture on Pepakura and print it.
Balinese Legong Dancer with Custom Batik Paper Craft
This dancer template was submitted by Ivan vh, he recolor the original Balinese Legong dancer template with his own texture. Although he uses different pattern / batik from different part of the archipelago but it still looks beautiful and different from the original one. Built paper craft in the photo was assembled by himself. The PDF file is quite big in size (almost 6 MB) so I split it into 3 parts.
Custom AR Drone 2.0 Outdoor hull : NASA Theme
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.
