Printable Harry Potter Monopoly

This printable Harry Potter Monopoly board is not a scan of the store bought version of the game.  It is a work of fan art produced by  a Harry Potter blog in the Netherlands. Except for the houses and hotels, everything you need to play is included. I like that the instruction book for the game is made to look like a Marauder's Map.  :) The game is available in both Dutch and English language versions. The PDF templates for the English version of the game may be downloaded here.

UPDATE 12/18/19: The game pictured above is no longer available. The link in the post above now points to an alternate Harry Potter Monopoly. Unlike the original version which was 100% printable, the alternate version requires modifying a real Monopoly board.

VW Kübelwagen Paper Model

During World War II, the US military used Willys MB Jeeps while the German army used Type 82 Kübelwagens. Kübelwagens were designed and built by Volkswagen at the request of the Third Reich. This 1:17 scale paper model of a Kübelwagen was created by Toni Mauricio. The PDF template for the model may be downloaded here. In the US in the 1960's, Volkswagen introduced a version of the Kübelwagen known as the "Thing".

Maplestory Papercraft: Mushmom House

I heard a rumor that in the near future a new Maplestory app is going to be released. It made me nostalgic. Ten years ago Maplestory papercraft was some of the best fan art papercraft you could find. I managed to track down one of the old paper models. It depicts the character "Mushmom" in front of her mushroom house. A download of the printable template for the model is available here. Maplestory is a free Korean MMO video game that was first released in 2003.
