Star Wars Papercraft: Metro Ticket Spacecraft

Here are some cool miniature Star Wars papercraft made from Paris Metro tickets. I really admire tiny papercraft builds like this because I don't have the patience to attempt something this small! Want to give it a try but don't have a Metro ticket? No problem. The designer has a photo of a Metro ticket posted including the ticket's dimensions. Both the X-Wing Fighter and the Millennium Falcon models were designed by Hubert de Lartigue, France, 2005 and can be found here and here.

  2. Thanks for your comment. You are right. It is technically origami since it is made by folding without glue. However some people like myself use "papercraft" as a general term to include all paper modeling categories from origami to card modeling. Take a look at how paper modeling is defined at wikipedia:

  3. Actually, origami is without glue and without cutting. Kirigami is where cutting is used in the papercraft.
