Captain America Paper Model

Another Captain America movie will be released this week! This Captain America paper model was released in 2009 by Action Papercrafts. It has always been one of my favorite papercraft renditions of the good captain. Even though this model is an oldie-but-goodie, the Pepakura PDO template is still available here. The finished model stands 15" (39 cm) tall and includes a display base (not shown).

Soviet MS-1 Tank Paper Model

World of Tanks is a  massively multiplayer online game that features World War II era fighting vehicles. This Soviet MS-1 tank is one of several paper models released by the makers of the game. A PDF of the printable template for the tank may be found here (click on the red text beneath the photo). You will notice the instructions for the model are in Russian, which is understandable given the developer of the game is based in Russia. As far as I know, the template is not available in any other languages. The MS-1 was also known as the "T-18 light tank".

Other Papercraft Tanks:
Renault FT
Ford 3-Ton M1918

David Bowie Ziggy Stardust Paper Toy

As bizarre as this David Bowie paper toy may seem, it replicates an outfit Bowie wore in 1973 as part of his Ziggy Stardust persona. Bowie's Ziggy Stardust tour in the early 70's is considered by many to have been the creative force that propelled the artist to fame. This tribute paper toy was created by Vic Matos and may be downloaded here.

Mad Max Interceptor Paper Model

I was watching Mad Max: Fury Road this week and got the itch to post some Mad Max papercraft! I consider this 2007 paper model of Mad Max's car to be one of the best renditions around. The model was created and built by Claudio Dias. A free download of Claudio's template may be found here. The real life car used in the Mad Max movies was a customized 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon coupe (a car that was sold only in Australia). The car is usually referred to as an "interceptor" because it was Mad Max's police car in the first film in the series.

Fire Wyvern Origami

Wyverns often appear in English, Scottish, and Irish heraldry. The technical definition of a wyvern is "a winged two-legged dragon with a barbed tail". This origami wyvern was folded from a single 12" square of paper by DeviantART member, Cahoonas. I especially like the design of the wings! The crease pattern for the wyvern can be found here.

Collapsible Papercraft Dice Tower

Tim Schutz, an indie game designer from the Pacific Northwest, created this papercraft dice tower to offer as a free download on his website. According to Schutz, the tower "folds flat and can be stored inside your favorite game or in a 6x9 envelope". Nice! The PDF template for the tower may be downloaded here. Hey! How did those pigs get in the photo? ^^

Munsters House and Car Paper Models

I can barely remember seeing reruns of The Munsters on television when I was just a tot. Both their house and car were truly unique! Now, with much attention to detail, card model designer Dave Winfield has recreated the Munster's home and car in paper. Free papercraft templates for the models may be downloaded from Dave's webpages here and here. The original "Munster Koach" (as the car was named) was designed by George Barris who also designed the 1966 Batmobile.
