285: National Ride To Work Day

Posted by wonko on October 12, 2011 in humanoid, mammal |

I heard on teh radio this morning that it was National “Ride to Work” Day and narrowly avoided running over a flock of cyclists near the freeway entrance – it got me thinking what riding to work might be like: I had a model I was looking for an excuse to try, and initially tried it on […]

269: Brill’s Dolphin

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2011 in blarg, fish, mammal |

Now I am going visiting to the Sunshine Coast today, so thought something marine would be appropriate: This lovely dolphin reminds me of “flipper” who appeared to frolic in the sea. The sad truth about captive dolphins however is that they lead miserable, confused lives and have a really short lifespan due to stress and […]

250: Child Protection Week

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2011 in humanoid |

This week is designated “Child Protection Week” so I looked for a model that was for me the essence of the message: Education is where I went – kids educated by older people is one of the best forms of protection around and this group of figures shows the careing and respectful relationship betwixt teacher […]

212: Brill’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on July 31, 2011 in dinosaur |

End of another month, thought I would wrestle with a dragon to celebrate and found David Brill’s interpretation of the theme: I like this a lot, for a bunch of reasons – it has a lovely head and tail, well placed wings and when photographed flat (hey, another model suited to a card) it looks […]

207: Cat Ready For Dinner

Posted by wonko on July 26, 2011 in mammal |

This delightful cat is a David Brill model worth folding – so much character and a smug expression on it’s face: It is said that dogs are people pets and cats are place pets – this one certainly looks like it owns the place. Busy afternoon – happy with this first fold, my subsequent attempts […]

165: Sugar Plump Fairy

Posted by wonko on June 14, 2011 in humanoid |

I once shared a house with 3 other uni friends – much happened, most memorable. Late one night, instead of finishing a due-next-day assignment, Mark was seen flitting and pirouetting through the house: We coined the expression “sugar plump fairy” after the dance he was attempting, it stuck. Happy Birthday Mark!!! 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 […]

133: Brill’s Bottle

Posted by wonko on May 13, 2011 in boxes, domestic |

I would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy: A fully formed container, neck, base, hollow and interesting I like this design, and was sure it would not work – forming the neck and pleating the base to seal it make it a very clever model indeed. Folded from the […]

109: Brill’s Nut

Posted by wonko on April 19, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Take a rectangle cut from half a square and torture it via box-pleating: and you get a nut that actually takes the thread of the bolt previously made with the same hexagonality, nice. This was an odd fold, it looked like it was going to hell at every stage, the inside collapse looked like it […]

108: David Brill’s Bolt

Posted by wonko on April 18, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

When I first saw this model I thought it was not possible, but thought I would give it a whirl anyway: This is a bolt, box pleated to have a functional thread and a beautiful hexagonal do-uppy endy thing (sorry, no idea what you call the end you use a spanner on). It was a […]
