395: Showing Off

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2012 in amphibian, boxes, creepy crawly, crustacean, fish, flower, fruit, geometry, humanoid, mammal, reptile, scifi, vehicle |

Our local council library has a large glass display case that usually has things on show for a month. I cautiously asked one of the librarians if she thought some origami would interest patrons and she was very enthusiastic: There are around 200 models now on show at Holland Park Library for June and I am quite […]

375: Bugatti Royale

Posted by wonko on February 5, 2012 in vehicle |

I am not normally a fan of fiddly modular figurative models, preferring geometrics instead but this design by Halle caught my eye: Made from 41 tiny bits of paper, various sizes and fold techniques, it turns into a 3d jigsaw from hell near the end. Amazingly however it all slots together (although I needed to […]

297: Taxi!

Posted by wonko on October 24, 2011 in humanoid, vehicle |

In old Chinatown, when someone wanted to travel in style, they hailed a “coolie” pulling a rickshaw: This picture was common in days gone by, these days the hustle and bustle of bicycles, motorbikes and tuk-tuks has replaced the hard work. This is Neal Elias’ “Coolie and Rickshaw”, designed in1967. An ingenious box pleat using a square and […]

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 […]
