Papercraft Vintage Computers - Commodore 64!

Like Erik Schubach, I too grew up in the early days of video gaming. I certainly look back on those days with rose colored glasses as if I fire up a game in mame that I spent a million hours obsessing over when I was 10, it looks and plays like absolute crap. I'm just being honest here! But... there's still some magic there that makes you feel all happy and warm inside.

Erik obviously loves some of these old machines with a passion as he has gone ahead and done the world a great service by recreating them in paper craft form. Big ups to you Erik!

Here they are...

Tattooed Elephant Paper Model

I like tattoos, elephants and papercraft so it should be no surprise to anyone that i'm featuring a tattooed papercraft elephant on here. This is a simple structural model but what makes it a keeper is the intricate artwork that has been lovingly created. Grab it here.

Virgin Mary Papercraft

This could be a first for Papercraft World; a religious paper model. This happy fellow makes some other pretty cool stuff - he's been featured on this blog before with  a model of a roast chicken! So his collection is um.. eclectic? You can grab the paper model of the blessed virgin mary here. Check the homepage for other goodies.

And last but not least a SDF 1 Storm Attacker Mode which is absolutely amazing? Grab this here

Papercraft food + Foosball table and other neat crafty things

If you are an avid reader of this site, you will have noticed that I really like ordinary things made out of paper. Yeah robots, gundams, video game characters, guns and so on are all great, but there is something really cool about making everyday stuff from paper. This site is a great example. We've got a kitchen set with scales, a toaster and a cup etc.. Then a camping set with a tent and a bbq. A picnic set, a bunch of biscuits, a pretty sweet car thing (my son would love that) and holy crap a working foosball table made entirely out of paper. Very nice!

Grab them all here, just look for the pdf icon links and enjoy.

Batman Papercraft + Superhero Arts and Crafts!

Batman has alway been a favorite superhero of mine, while growing up I always had my foot firmly planted in the Marvel comics camp, The Avengers, Spider-man etc... But my secret shame among my fellow Marvel aficionados was the odd Batman comic, that and the camp sixties TV Show played constantly when I was a  kid. Anyways Paperollies has a pretty awesome Batman papercraft for you in his amazing series of SuperPaperMen which you can grab here.

If Superman is more your cup of tea then you can grab him here. Check the homepage too for some other great paper model goodies

Cute Anime Papercraft Girls

This is a amazing bunch of really cute paper crafts here, the picture above is only about half of the collection, it's no easy task to create organic looking things out of paper, machines and robots and cars are way easier. So my hats of to you good sir. Incredible job and many thanks for sharing your talents so freely with the world!

Paper Crafts For Kids

I know from personal experience how hard it can be to keep the little people in your life entertained, particularly if like me you live in a country where winter just seems to drag on and on.

So I thought I would dig out some easy, fun and damn cute paper models for that crafty kid in your life. Hey even if they get bored and want to watch cartoons at least you have something to do rather than watching Toy Story for the 30th time that week.

Amazon has these great little robots called Piperoids, there are many different versions to collect, they are all high quality and each have a story behind them, excellent for teaching kids about constructing things themselves

Animal Matching Puzzle made from paper of course!
A papery (is that a real word?) take on a classic matching game, could be a great gift for the kid who has too much plastic crap in his or her life. If you had the skills you could even customize it yourself.

Build your own Paper Town
As usual the Canon site has some great high quality papercrafts that are perfect for kids. There is a lot of variety here, from cars to buildings to a ferris wheel.

Paper Box World
These are great, such a simple concept that has been pulled of really well due to the bright vibrant colors and variety. Sweet, get some now.

There are heaps more great paper arts and crafts projects for kids of all ages out there in that big thing we call the internet. Have fun!

Samurai Gundam Paper Model

Two things that are awesome. Samurai and SD Gundams. Combine those and you have something truly special.

You know what else is awesome - papercraft, but hey why stop there, let's take it up another notch of awesome - free papercraft!

So what do we have here, Samurai SD Gundam Free Papercraft! Holy crap.

Get it here and don't forget to have a browse around the rest of this site for some more goodness.

Full Metal Alchemist - Alphonse Papercraft

Late to the party as usual I only started watching Full Metal Alchemist in the last couple of months. It's a damn fine anime (and I presume excellent manga). My favorite character would have to be Alphonse Elric, stuck inside a big intimidating metal suit, this guy has a heart of a pacifist. Of course there is a sweet papercraft of the big dummy! Courtesy of Tamasoft, you'll need the PDO viewer.

Papercraft Blank Templates

Most papercraft is the hard work and dedication of talented artists and while this set of paper models is certainly that, there is a difference, they have been left blank. What does this mean for you? It means you can put whatever you want on them. Awesome. Go nuts, get creative. Have fun :P

iPad Papercraft

For those of you who don't live in America and can't afford to import an iPad - this may be the answer. It's a paper model replica of Steve Jobs latest shiny toy. Almost as good as the real thing right? Yeah.. not quite but hey at least you can say I do have an iPad albeit a paper one.

Grab it here

Papercraft Designer Toy

There is nothing like the smell of freshly printed papercraft in the morning - well actually there is: freshly printed hand-drawn papercraft of a Panda Totem Mech carrying lovable children off to a joyous adventure somewhere. What am I talking about? This papercraft right here - designed by French graffiti collective Pandacrew. Get it, print it, make it and love it.

Fallout 3 Papercrafts

It took me a while to come around to buying Fallout 3 - I've never been a big WRPG fan and the game slipped under my rader as an oblivion with guns clone, it wasn't until I started watching some videos on youtube that I realised the game might be an improvement on the Bethesda formula, so I traded in a couple of games and brought the sucker. I'm glad I did, it ended up being one of my most played games of all time. Now with Fallout New Vegas on the horizon I need something to occupy my cravings for more Fallout goodness and this collection of papercraft will do just that

Fallout Alien Blaster Papercraft

Fallout Combat Shotgun (one of my favorite weapons)
Megaton Bomb (did you blow the sucker up?)
Fallout 3 Ammo
Bobblehead Charisma Papercraft
Bobblehead Speech Papercraft

Have I missed any? Let me know...

Still havent got a copy of Fallout 3? Buy it here
