Monster Hunter Tri Papercraft: Giggi

This giggi papercraft was based on a 3D model from the Monster Hunter Tri video game. A giggi, according to the creator of the paper model, is the "small leech-like larvae of the Gigginox" which slowly follows hunters and latches onto them unless shaken off. PDF and Pepakura PDO templates for the little paper monster may be downloaded here. Monster Hunter Tri was originally released in 2010.

German Papercraft Castle

This paper model castle was originally published in the German language children's magazine Fixi und Foxi in 1983. The interesting thing about this particular model is that it was designed by Schreiber, a well known publisher of card models. The four page template for the model may be found here. I am unsure if this papercraft is a real or fictional building. The official title of the model is "SchloƟ Rosenberg" but a quick Internet search of that name did not reveal any real life buildings that look remotely like the model. If you have more information about this building please let me know.
