Battlestar Galactica Colonial Blaster Papercraft

Here's a blast from the past (no pun intended): a full size paper model of a Colonial blaster pistol from the original Battlestar Galactica television series. The model is somewhat complicated to build as some of the parts in the muzzle are constructed from sheets of clear plastic, but the end result is marvelous! The PDF template for the gun was created by Marcell von dem Berge and may be downloaded at Steve's Paper. Battlestar Galactica aired on ABC for a single season which began in 1978.

Christmas Reindeer Papercraft

I like the geometric quality of this Christmas reindeer papercraft. The color is nice too, especially the bits of color added to the antlers. The reindeer was offered as a free download by Media Molecule during the 2012 holiday season. Fortunately, the template is still available today and may be downloaded here.

Actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman play Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in the popular BBC television series, Sherlock. As part of a "Let's Draw Sherlock" project on Tumblr, Bluebell of Baker Street created paper dolls of the two detectives. Each doll comes with five changes of clothes. A download of the printable dolls may be found here. Sherlock Season 4 is scheduled to begin filming in Spring 2016.

Star Wars BB-8 Droid Paper Toy

In the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII movie, a new droid by the name of BB-8 will be introduced. BB-8 is known to be in Episode VII because he made an appearance in the very first teaser trailer for the film. Like R2-D2, BB-8 is an astromech droid, a type of robot who functions as both a mechanic and a co-pilot for certain spacecraft in the Star Wars universe. This printable paper toy BB-8 was created by Fold Up Toys and may be downloaded here. Episode VII is scheduled to be released on December 18!

Thanksgiving Turkey Origami

When I first came across this origami, the first thought that came to my mind was: Thanksgiving turkey. However, as I discovered later, it is not an origami turkey. It's a roasted chicken! Be that as it may, it still works well as a Thanksgiving decoration. The crease pattern for the turkey, er I mean chicken, was created by Joseph Wu and may be downloaded here.

Drakan Papercraft: Grey Dragon

Dragons play a significant role in the 1999 video game, Drakan: Order of the Flame. In the game, a young woman named Rynn and her companion, a red dragon named Arokh, fight to free Rynn's brother from the clutches of an evil sorcerer. This papercraft dragon designed by DeviantART member Metalfist0 is based on a 3D model from Drakan. A Pepakura PDO template for the model may be downloaded here.  As far as dragon paper models go, I consider this model to be intermediate difficulty. Looking for a simple dragon model? Try this 2.5D dragon model. Looking for something challenging? Try this Skyrim frost dragon papercraft!
