295: WALL-E

Posted by wonko on October 22, 2011 in machine, scifi, vehicle |

I am an out and proud Pixar fan, they make movies where animation is almost amazing as the story telling and characterisation: This is Brian Chan’s WALL-E – a lovely model that has taken me simply an age to complete for all sorts of reasons. I started with a 52cm square (yep, over a half […]

263: Enterprise (Micro Machine)

Posted by wonko on September 20, 2011 in scifi, vehicle |

Those who know me know that I am a bit of a trekker, always on the lookout for Star Trek related stuff: When I saw this simple model I knew I would give it a go some day. Tonight my mate Mike and I watch some retro Trek (Original Series) and I thought it opportune […]

243: Cessna Plane

Posted by wonko on August 31, 2011 in vehicle |

I have had this model, described via hand-drawn diagrams for ages and thought it a good one to finish the month with: This is a tidy little plane, named Cessna after the style of modern single engine aircraft it is modeled on. I am not, however, sure who the designer is – can anyone enlighten […]

242: Trainset

Posted by wonko on August 30, 2011 in vehicle |

Now when I was a kid I did not have a trainset – you know, one of those Hornsby jobbies with the locomotive, carriages and transformer-powered track: Not sure if I actually wanted one, but there you go – I had friends who did, right down to the chemical you put a drop of in […]

204: Android

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2011 in machine, scifi |

Now I am no fanboi of ANY operating system (they are ALL buggy, quirky and make little sense from a design perspective), and recommend NO hardware (it is ALL junk with 100% failure rate) but I thought some of my geekier friends might like this tribute: A fairly faithful (at least from the front side […]

203: Skateboard

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2011 in blarg, domestic, machine |

Pressed with something to make and tired and shagged out after a busy week I stumbled across this model and thought I would give it a go: I have seen kids using a mini-skateboard (tech deck I think they are called) and am amazed that this model is a fairly complete imitation of one, including wheels, trucks […]

194: Messerschmitt

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2011 in vehicle |

I have been invited to a 4-person dogfight match tonight and thought a plane wold be the best model for the job, so found a rather nice Messerschmitt BF 109K: With relatively few folds a lovely propeller-based warplane emerges from a flat sheet. I like this model a lot (so much so that I folded 4 of them – […]

189: Roller

Posted by wonko on July 8, 2011 in vehicle |

Now in posh car circles, a Rolls Royce is called a “Roller” – how do I know this? Well, I don’t, but that is what it is called on the telly. I am going driving today, so thought I would do it in style (at least in my head): A tortured and fiddly design that […]

162: A Train and Carriages

Posted by wonko on June 11, 2011 in vehicle |

wow, no I mean WOW! I saw this box-pleating exercise and initially put it in the “yeah, prolly not” pile, but dug it out after I found a roll of nice butcher’s paper and wondered how it would fold: Train carriages, engine complete with smokestack and lovely billow of smoke – far my favourite vehicle […]

158: Little Plane

Posted by wonko on June 7, 2011 in vehicle |

Stuck for something to do, honestly, so decided to try and make sense of a set of instructions in Spanish with hand-drawn diagrams and hola: This is a little plane – most likely a cesna or similar – remarkably little effort to make a fairly detailed plane Nice landing gear, good wings – it glides! No propeller […]
