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 […]

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 […]

151: Gav’s New Car

Posted by wonko on May 31, 2011 in vehicle |

you all remember that feeling, right – the “new car” feeling, right down to the upholstery smell and the plastic covering the seats: A mate, Gavin, recently bought his first new car – a white Subaru Impreza (or something similar) so I decided to make him a paper version to remember the occasion I like this model […]

149: The Black Pearl in a Bottle

Posted by wonko on May 29, 2011 in vehicle |

…so my Wife and I went to see the fourth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” (admitting to be fans) and discovered Capt’n Jack’s beloved “Black Pearl” had been imprisoned in a bottle by Blackbeard (amongst other piratical stereotypes trotted out this adventure): So I got to thinking about ships, and found a lovely “fully rigged […]

143: Moped

Posted by admin on May 23, 2011 in vehicle |

Now it is my brother-in-law’s Birthday today (Happy Birthday Robert!!!) and he loves all things Motorbike (especially high powered zoomy ones), so I thought I would make him a Moped: This is doubly hilarious because this little dinky model looks like it would be slower than walking Made with some simple (if compact and intense) […]

141: Biplane

Posted by wonko on May 21, 2011 in vehicle |

Now I had relegated this model in to the “yeah, prolly not” pile but on a whim this morning thought I would give it a whirl: The detail here is amazing – propeller, landing gear, double wings with strut to keep them apart, tail, engine, reasonably shaped fuselage I would like to pretend this model came […]
