Architecture Papercraft: German Tower and Church

These two free architecture paper models are offered on the website of the Administration of Teltow-Fläming, a district in the state of Brandenburg, Germany. On the left is the market tower of the city of Luckenwalde. On the right is the village church of the city of Mellnsdorf. Both these landmarks were under construction in the first half of the 13th century. The scale of the paper models is 1:87 (HO).

Papercraft Tents

These papercraft tents were designed as a craft project for children to teach them about Priscilla and Aquila, a married couple mentioned in several books in the Christian New Testament. Priscilla and Aquila were tentmakers by trade. Three different tent models are available for download at the Jesus Without Words website. Not pictured is the "pup" style tent. These might be useful for miniature gaming, although they will probably need to be printed at a different scale if used for that purpose.

Vintage Papercraft Elephant Pagoda

There have been copies of this antique papercraft elephant pagoda floating around the Internet for years. Now thanks to someone at Wurlington Press we finally get to see what the finished model looks like! As far as I can tell from doing a little research, a real-life building like this probably did not exist. There are however numerous bronze statuettes and incense burners that are similar. Some of them are ancient. The template for the elephant pagoda was originally published in 1928 in the Danish magazine, Illustreet Familie-Journal. A scan of the template may be found here.

Papercraft Dodo Bird

Here we have a Japanese paper model of the famous dodo bird. Dodo's are believed to have gone extinct sometime in the late 1600's. The flightless bird became an indelible part of our collective pop culture memory after Lewis Carroll included an anthropomorphic dodo as a character in his 1865 novel, Alice in Wonderland. The papercraft template and instructions for the dodo are available here.
