Game of Thrones Papercraft: Drogon

Drogon is one of three dragons cared for by Queen Daenerys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones television show. This paper model of Drogon depicts him as an adult, however the scale of the model is very close to the size of the dragon when he was newly hatched. The template for this papercraft was created by Cláudio Dias and may be downloaded here. Detailed instructions are included with the template. Queen Daenerys' other two dragons are named Rhaegal and Viserion.

Marvel Comics MODOK Paper Toy

The Marvel character MODOK is at once one of the silliest and one of the creepiest of comic book villains.  MODOK (which is an acronym for "Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing") is a normal human who underwent brain enhancement, the side effect being his head grew to an enormous size. No longer able to walk on his own, MODOK relies on a high tech flying chair to get around. This MODOK paper toy comes with lots of accessories including weapons and several interchangeable faces and arms. Also available is an AIM soldier, one of the hundreds of minions MODOK employs. Printable PDF templates for the toy may be downloaded at the Mindless Shelf Indulgence website.

Space 1999 Eagle Paper Model

In 2011 I posted an easy Space 1999 Eagle transporter paper model. Here is a slightly more detailed model of the same spacecraft by Papertoybox. One noticeable difference between the two models is the top of the newer Eagle model has an actual 3D triangulated frame rather than the boxed-in piece the 2011 model has. The PDF template for the transporter may be downloaded here. The designer has photo instructions available as well. The Space 1999 television show aired for two years from 1975 to 1977.

Barbie Scale Harpsichord Paper Model

Several years ago I created some Barbie doll sized papercraft, so I was delighted this week to discover I am not the only one! This Barbie scale Baroque harpsichord paper model was created by DeviantART member Menkhar. A PDF file of the printable template for the harpsichord may be downloaded here. Harpsichords were popular in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries but eventually fell out of favor after the invention of the piano.

Tower of Babel Ziggurat Pop-up

Some scholars associate the Tower of Babel in the Bible with the ancient city of Babylon. So it is no surprise this Tower of Babel paper pop-up was designed by Elod Beregszaszi to be in the form of a Babylonian ziggurat. A PDF template for the tower may be downloaded here.

Papercraft V Reptilian Laser Pistol

The 1983 television mini-series "V" tells the story of the invasion of Earth by aliens. The aliens appear to be very human looking, but are later revealed to be reptilians who wear disguises to hide their true features. This full scale paper model of a reptilian laser pistol from the series was created by Marcell von dem Berge. A printable PDF template for the model may be downloaded here. Fun trivia: actor Robert Englund (who went on to play Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street) played one of the reptilians in V.
