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 […]

239: Little Red Riding Hood

Posted by wonko on August 27, 2011 in humanoid |

Someone gave me a copy of foreign version of “Red Riding Hood” that I missed in the cinema that I thought was artistically interesting. A modern slant on a village terrorised by a werewolf, so I thought I would fold “Red”: “Oh Grandma, what big eyes you have, ears, teeth …”, yeah, it was never […]

220: Saint Mary Mackillop

Posted by wonko on August 8, 2011 in humanoid |

Apparently today is the feast for St Mary Mackillop – the first Australian who has been verified to do enough miracles to qualify as a saint. Interestingly, I drive past the church school she used to teach in in South Brisbane. I would love to say I actually knew this, but a staff member mentioned […]

209 Elias’ Bull

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2011 in mammal |

When I bought “Selected Works” by Neil Elias, I was delighted with teh collection of box pleating models from the founder of this technique After watching masterchef tonight I thought “What a lot of bull” – judges and contestants sprouting such a lot of false sentimentality the model I decided to fold was really obvious […]

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 […]

199: Lego Block

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Now I like a good challenge, but this was a little beyond the pale: I have seen photos of this model less than half as big and I am buggered if I can work out how you could fold it that small as I struggled at this scale. A fascinating exercise in box pleating that […]

198: Walkies (aka tree watering time)

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2011 in mammal, plant |

We live in a fairly quiet suburb and we like (not often enough sadly) to go for walks – as do dog owners who do it as much to get some exercise as to “empty their pet”: I saw this exercise in box pleating and thought it had promise – starting with a grid of […]

195: The Eiffel Tower

Posted by wonko on July 14, 2011 in domestic |

Vive le France – it is Bastille Day and I ask what is more quintessentially French than “Le Tour Eiffel”: I resisted the obvious froggy references and went straight for a cultural landmark – albeit a fairly ugly bit of schrapnel left over from a world expo. I like this model – partly because I […]

182: Canadian Bull Moose

Posted by wonko on July 1, 2011 in mammal |

Now I was told it was Canada Day on July 1 by Peter and Jen, and they kindly asked me to fold them a moose (after seeing a picture of the finished model on google) … if it was not too much trouble. Fortunately i had a copy of “Origami Design Secrets” by Robert Lang, […]

177: Hedwig

Posted by wonko on June 26, 2011 in bird |

Now I am the first to admit I am an out and proud Harry Potter fan. I have consumed all the content JK Rowling has produced on the world of magical and muggle, and particularly like the use of Owl Post: Looming is the release of Deathly Hollows part 2 and more recently mention of […]
