706: (156/365) Finger Gyro

Posted by wonko on June 5, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

A craze among the young kids at the moment is the “fidgit spinner“, that little toy that … spins, and … well, that is just about it: According to some fairly shady “research”, these toys improve concentration, and that may be correct for a limited number of kids with specific learning issues, but, yeah. Enterprising […]

701: (151/365) Queenslander!

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, fantasy, wtf |

…a little known fact, up until the night of the day this fold was supposed to be folded (last night if I am honest, missed a day, catching up, sorry) I had NEVER watched a Rugby match. Ever: So I was over at a mates place, we were supposed to be playing a board game […]

660: (110/365) Riki Saito’s Alien

Posted by wonko on April 20, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, scifi, wtf |

It is late, I am tired, the first week back at the start of the term is exhausting but this little alien is looking after me: Folded from Japanese foil, it compliments yesterdays model. Incidentally today is a few days after the 56th anniversary of humans in space as Yuri Gagarin first left our atmosphere

612: (62/365) Minecraft Golden Snitch

Posted by wonko on March 3, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, wtf |

Potter Nerds and Minecraft Nerds unite, for I present to you a “Minecraft” style cubey golden snitch: This buzzy little bugger would be difficult to catch in a full on game of Quidditch indeed. This is Riccardo Foschi’s “CuBird”, an interesting little CP that collapses with a little wrangling to make a lovely little cube and […]

600: (50/365) A Shedload of Models

Posted by wonko on February 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

For those of you keeping up, you will notice SOME of the posts on this blog have numbers. The first number (in this case 600) represents a catalogue of sorts – it documents the number of new models that I have never folded, before documenting it here: Jo Nakashima’s “6” is new for me, the […]

586: (36/360) Gaikotsu Figure

Posted by wonko on February 5, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

Now I am not really one for card-based rpg/gattle games – Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the gathering, but I know they have a huge and passionate fan-base. Trolling through a Tanteidan I found a curious little skeletal character and decided to fold it: A modular, in 3 bits (head, shoulders, knees+toes … everybody sing..), it struck […]

584: (34/365) Tadashi Mori’s Facebook “Like”

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2017 in 365-2017, wtf |

Social media, gift that it is, has fundamentally broken two concepts I think. The “friend” and the “like” now no longer mean what they used to, and culturally I am not sure we are not really ready for that change: The “friend” has come to mean some random that stalks you, watching what you do.

571: (21/365) OMG!!!!

Posted by wonko on January 21, 2017 in 365-2017, machine, paper, wtf |

Needless to say the media is abuzz with reactions to Trump’s inauguration. Let us hope that the he does not become the “Bane” of their existence (even though part of his speech was plagiarised from the Marvel Universes’ fictitious tyrant presidential coup, I am sure this is merely coincidence): One has to have hope in […]

No Dragon, Just Head

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, geometry, paper, reptile, wtf |

Determined not to let Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon” beat me, I decided to isolate the part of the model that I had failed on each of the 4 times I have attempted this nightmare of bent paper – the head: Using the crease pattern, I isolated the corner that is the head and made that […]

543: Flock

Posted by wonko on August 13, 2016 in bird, geometry, Traditional, wtf |

I try to mark the passing of Hiroshima Day August 6 with respect and effort. Having folded the traditional 1000 cranes twice in my life (oddly, the second time my cranes were “borrowed” by a then campaigning year 11 for a community project where he received the credit and was subsequently elected School Captain … […]
