Stitch's Ray Gun Papercraft

The Disney character Stitch (from the 2002 animated movie Lilo & Stitch) appears in the Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep video game for PSP. Also called "Experiment 626", Stitch sometimes makes use of a ray gun. This paper model of Stitch's ray gun is based on a 3D model from KHBBS. The gun is full scale and measures about 7"(17.8 cm) in length. The two page, eight piece template for this papercraft may be downloaded here. I hope to be able to do some more Birth by Sleep papercraft in coming months, so stay tuned!

Masonic Pop-Up

This paper pop-up with authentic Masonic symbols was created by Guy Spivey, a member of a Scottish Rite lodge in North Carolina. Spivey intended the pop-up to be a 3D "Trestle-Board". A Trestle-Board is a board mounted on a trestle (easel) on which architects in ancient times drew their building designs. In Masonic lodges today, Masonic symbols are drawn on Trestle-Boards instead of architectural designs. The template for this pop-up may be found here. The build photo above is by Sevenworlds16.

Official Ben 10 Papercraft

These two items are the first official Ben 10 papercraft from Cartoon Network I have come across. The first item is a papercraft omnitrix watch which includes ten different medallions that can be attached to the face. The second item is a paper toy of Ben himself. In the show, Ben uses the omnitrix to transform into various alien creatures.
Try as I might, I could not find these papercraft models on the US version of the Cartoon Network website. They appear to only be available on the French version of the site. To get the goods, look for the download links at the bottom of the page here.

Space 1999 Papercraft: Eagle Transporter

Over the years, I have seen several different papercraft templates for the Eagle Transporter spacecraft from Space: 1999. However, most of these paper models were very detailed and thus pretty difficult to build. Finally, with the release of this papercraft Eagle by DA artist Frohickey, a simpler, easier-to-build version of the Eagle is available. The seven pages of Frohickey's template may be downloaded here.

2.5D Velociraptor Paper Model

Paper models show up in the oddest of places! This 2.5D velociraptor papercraft is a free download at the Spanish language paleontology illustration blog "Las conicas de Pabluratops". The velociraptor (or "raptor" for short) depicted by the paper model is specifically Velociraptor mongoliensis, named for the fact that several fossils of the creature have been found in Mongolia. In the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, raptors are portrayed as cunning and ruthless killers. A printable template for the dinosaur is available here.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Eye Papercraft

On a whim, I took my Eye of Agamotto paper model and made some modifications to create this Millennium Eye papercraft. In the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe, the Millennium Eye is one of seven Millennium artifacts that give their bearers special powers. Among other things, the Eye gives the bearer the ability to read another's mind and to see what their eyes see. This papercraft is actually two models: the Millennium Eye itself and a carved stone base to hold the Eye. For a smoother look, the Eye in the photo above was built without folding the pieces. The base, however, does have folds. The lined and unlined templates for this papercraft may be downloaded here.
