Astronomy Paper Models #1

Here are three astronomy papercraft I built. Each one was made with heavyweight typing paper and double sided tape. The larger one in the middle was my first attempt at paper modeling. From left to right they are:
  • Moon Icosahedron by Calvin J. Hamilton, USA, 1998
    Model can be found here.
  • Polyhedron Skyglobe by Richard Powell, Great Britain, 1998
    Model can be found here.
  • Earth Rhombicuboctahedron by Carlos A. Furuti, Brazil, 2004
    Model can be found here.
The hardest part of each of these models was getting the final side taped in place without crushing the model.
