Vintage Italian Dive Bomber Papercraft

This antique papercraft airplane is estimated to have been produced in Italy sometime during the 1930's or 40's. The title on the template reads "bombardiere a tuffo" which in English is "dive bomber". And indeed, there is bomb included on the underside of the model. The colorization of the plane (which I love) seems rather fanciful, so I am unsure if the model was intended to represent an actual aircraft or be a generic representation of this type of aircraft. A copy of the template for the airplane may be downloaded here. Build photos by Tom Greensfelder.

Baby Yoda Paper Toy

It seems everyone's favorite character on Disney's The Mandalorian is Baby Yoda. The lovable little imp is popping up all over Etsy, appearing in memes, and (as is to be expected) there are numerous paper models in circulation. Here is one of the better Baby Yoda papercrafts. It was created by Alex Gwynne at Fold Up Toys and may be downloaded here. As with most of Gwynne's creations, the template is a single piece that folds to form a 3D toy.

The Warhawk warfare video game features three types of combat vehicles: aircraft, tanks, and 4x4 trucks. For the 2007 video game's release, Sony promoted the game by releasing free paper models of each vehicle type. Pictured are the models of the 4x4s in the game. On the left is the Jeep-like Eucadian Army 4x4. On the right is the truck used by the Chernovan military. PDF templates for both models are still available for download here.

MCU Thor Stormbreaker Papercraft

Since I have posted about paper models of nearly every other version of the war hammer of Marvel Comics' Thor, I felt compelled to post about this model too. ;) In the movie, Avengers: Infinity War, Thor gets a new hammer named "Stormbreaker". The tree-like being Groot willingly sacrifices his arm to provide a handle for the weapon. This 3D papercraft likeness of Stormbreaker was created by Precision Papercraft.  The Pepakura PDO template for the model may be downloaded here. The finished hammer is about 2' (61 cm) tall, which is somewhat smaller than the hammer appears in the movie.
