415: Smaug the Golden

Posted by wonko on November 22, 2012 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I have been looking for a nice dragon, you know, in celebration of the forthcoming release of “The Hobbit” (being a bit of a fan): I saw a coloured/cut version of this dragon on Deviantart and thought it worth trying, turns out it is a WIP from Tadashi Mori, who released a video of how […]

414: Sopwith Camel

Posted by wonko on November 17, 2012 in domestic, machine, vehicle |

I have been asked many times by well-meaning people whether I can make paper air planes: The honest answer is “sort of” – I love fantastically complicated and detailed Origami models of actual planes, but cannot make one that can fly for shit. This little beauty was a right bastard of a fold but closely resembles, […]

411: Phizz-based Stellated Icosahedron

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2012 in geometry |

The “phizz” unit designed by Tom Hull is a basic building block that can be used for many modulars: I thought I would start manageable, so devised a 30 unit ball, 6 faces each of 5 colours – total of 30 units. These are easy folding and have a positive locking mechanism so were a […]

340: Thorin Oakenstaff

Posted by wonko on December 6, 2011 in humanoid |

May I most humbly introduce to you, Thorin Oakenstaff Esq, Dwarf, gentleman, most of the time: I am so pleased this worked, even better than I had imagined. I found a hand-drawn crease pattern by the late, great Eric Joisel – I had been hankering after his dwarves you see and wondered how the heck […]

337: Hercules Beetle

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Woke up, brain would not stop, so thought I would punish it with a super complex Satoshi Kamiya model: This is his Hercules Beetle and it is snarly to fold indeed – even at this scale (I started with a 54cm square) there are terribly fiddly bits. The details here are a little dizzying – […]

304: Wicked Witch of the West

Posted by wonko on October 31, 2011 in humanoid |

Apparently some cultures celebrate halloween, although it is not really an Australian tradition (despite the efforts of the shops) I thought I would get in on the act myself: This has taken an age – I want to pretend that this is my first fold but in truth this if my 5th, the FIRST to […]

289: Satoshi’s Mammoth

Posted by wonko on October 16, 2011 in dinosaur, mammal |

I decided today would be another Satoshi Kamiya model (working my way up to the ancient dragon you see) and so selected his Mammoth, figuring “how hard could that be?”: LOL Wow, no I mean WOW! So much technique packed into such a tiny package, resulting in a lovely little pachyderm. There is much to […]

261: Satoshi’s Pegasus

Posted by wonko on September 18, 2011 in mammal |

“I am Pegasus, my name means horse…” – I am old enough to remember a folksey song by Ross Ryan about a mythological winged horse: I had some time, amidst trips and other things today so thought I would give Satoshi Kamiya’s Pegasus a go – it has been taunting me from the pages of his book. […]

233: Kawahata’s Locust

Posted by wonko on August 21, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Now I have not folded a model from Fumiaki Kawahata before because they looked so difficult: The instructions I have come from her lovely book “Insects Volume 1” and are all in Japanese (problem number 1) and use a completely different set of sumbols to indivate things like repeat, turn over, sink, spontaneously combust etc […]
