Godzilla 2014 Paper Model

Earlier this year, in conjunction with the release of the 2014 Godzilla movie, the Epson company added a fifth model to their series of Godzilla papercraft. The new model is patterned after Godzilla's updated appearance in the movie. The template for this model can only be obtained from Epson by printing directly from the Epson website to an Epson printer. Don't own an Epson printer? Fear not. A PDF version of the A4 sized template is available here.

Tiny Papercraft Nativity Scene

I have a thing for small sized paper models, but this tiny papercraft nativity scene is beyond the limits of what I would ever attempt to build. I am impressed! Intended for use in doll houses, the nativity was designed and built by Elizabeth Plain at the doll house blog, Open House Miniatures. A template and instructions for this papercraft may be found here. Have yourself a merry, little Christmas. :)

Dancing Baby Groot Papercraft

At the end of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, a re-sprouting baby Groot is seen dancing when no one is looking. Designer Richenna King recreates the memorable scene with this baby Groot papercraft. As if the papercraft wasn't cool enough in and of itself, it is also an automata that actually dances! A PDF template, instructions, and a movie of the model in action may be found on King's Behance page. In the Marvel Comics universe, Groot is a member of a plant-based extraterrestrial race. One characteristic of the race is the ability to re-grow after being destroyed (as long as at least one sprig of their former body is recovered).

Frozen Paper Dolls

Since its release in 2013, Disney's Frozen continues to grow in popularity. This set of paper dolls is a fan art creation by Cory Jensen. Included in the set are one change of clothes for the gents, and several changes for the ladies. Olaf the snowman is also included, but sadly he does not get any additional clothes to wear. The complete collection may be viewed on Jensen's Facebook page here.

Papercraft Hexagrammic Christmas Tree

This papercraft Christmas tree is constructed with three nesting sections that allow for a battery operated tea light to be inserted at each level. The effect is lovely! The PDF template for the tree may be downloaded at the bottom of the page here. Also available on the same page are several different styles of Christmas trees, as well as a three dimensional papercraft star to go on top of the tannenbaums!

Vintage Arc de Triomphe Papercraft

This weekend I was in the mood to build an architecture paper model, but didn't want to spend a lot of time. This antique papercraft Arc de Triomphe filled the bill. Counting printing, cutting and gluing, it took me about 20 minutes to complete. The template for this model originally appeared in the Danish language magazine, Illustreret Familie-Journal, founded in 1877 by Carl Aller. Numerous scans of Familie-Journal model templates may be found at the Agence Eureka blog. The Arc de Triomphe template is located here on Agence Eureka's Flickr page.

Mini TARDIS Papercraft

There are plenty of paper models around of Doctor Who's TARDIS, but none quite as small as this. Papercraft designer Dave Winfield proves once again he is a master at creating detailed models whose templates fit on a single sheet of paper. The PDF template for the TARDIS may be found here. For the uninitiated, the TARDIS is a time machine that appears to be a British police call box.
