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 […]

136: Starship Enterprise

Posted by wonko on May 16, 2011 in scifi, vehicle |

..Space, the final frontier. These are the journeys of the Starship Enterprise as she continues her 5 year mission … Talk about “boldly going where no copy paper has been before”, this delightful little model is the result of wrestling an A3-cut square into something that is 17cm saucer to nacelle. I really enjoyed torturing […]

105: Klingon War Bird

Posted by wonko on April 15, 2011 in scifi, vehicle |

About time I did something for the trekkers out there – this torturous model is a Klingon War Bird: Instructions, in German, suggested size paper makes a microscopic fold, very tough on the paper (thank heavens for fingernails). I like that the model is at least true to shape – knowing how the fold works […]

90: RocketShip

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2011 in vehicle |

Now I was admiring a primary (well, we are supposed to call them lower middle school) student’s created paper plane because it used so many neato Origami folds and he said he could get me the design: Little did I realise that he and his parents then copied a bunch of paper plane models for […]

84: Tie Fighter

Posted by wonko on March 25, 2011 in scifi, vehicle |

So our school did a fundraiser today – crazy tie day (yeah, I know it sounds a little lame to pay to wear a novelty tie, but it is for charity): I decided to interpret that non-traditionally, so made a TIE FIGHTER, from Star Wars (cue sfx: pew pew pew!) … well, I thought it […]

73: Panzer Tank

Posted by wonko on March 14, 2011 in vehicle |

I was leafing through a Robert Harbin book “Introduction to Origami 4” and stumbled across a lovely little box-pleating exercise: This tank, designed by Laurie Bisman is neat, it is 3d, has a turret, caterpillar tracks and a mobile gun – I wedged a paper shim under it to keep it upright for the photo. […]
