Lambretta LD Motor Scooter Papercraft

The Lambretta LD motor scooter was manufactured in Milan, Italy from 1951 to 1958. The most distinctive feature of the LD was its two seats, one for the driver and one for a passenger.

The scale of the paper model is approximately 1/24 in case you were wondering. ;)

The one page PDF template may be downloaded here. Previously, I built a skull and a shuriken paper model from LOL.

Disney Papercraft: Lady and the Tramp Paper Toys

These Lady and the Tramp paper toys remind me of Valentine's Day. I'll let the folks at listverse explain why:
"It’s difficult to single out another exact moment in all of the vast Disney collection that’s more charming, creative, tender, iconic and downright romantic, than when the cocker spaniel and the schnauzer-mix in Lady and the Tramp serendipitously pull each other into a kiss when they slurp up the same noodle from a plate of spaghetti."
The templates for these cute paper dogs may be downloaded here and here.

MechWarrior 4 Kodiak Papercraft

Here's a paper model of the Kodiak mech from the MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries PC game. According to the BattleTechWiki:
"The Kodiak's primary armament consists of devastating short-range weaponry... These powerful weapons enable the Kodiak to savage any foe, but care must be taken with the limited ammunition at the MechWarrior's disposal. The 'Mech supplements its primary weaponry with eight Series 2a ER Medium Lasers, four above each hand set into a claw-like array."
The template for the model was created by Blaar at the Mech3.org forum and may be downloaded here.
