270: False Teeth

Posted by wonko on September 27, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Anyone who knows me realizes the terror I experience when visiting the dentist: Don’t get me wrong, our dentist is awesome, and very aware that I have an irrational fear that I cannot control when being worked on. A red frog (chewy lolly) was the latest culprit, taking away most of a huge filling on […]

262: A Dead Man’s Chest

Posted by wonko on September 19, 2011 in boxes |

Ahoy me Hearties, so today be International Talk Like A Pirate Day, so I looked for somethin’ suitably Piratical t’ fold in celebration. I decided on a Treasure Chest by Robyn Glynn, a lovely folded and pleated folly that looks like it be made o’ planks o’ wood, has a curved top and a rather […]

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 […]

175: Tick Tick Tock

I find it interesting that time seems to pass so much slower when you are doing something you really do not enjoy: My “Theory of Temporal Perception” explains that time like that which crawls past during an exam supervision, say, is noticed minute by minute, tick by tock. This is a cute action model – […]

140: A Cannon

Posted by wonko on May 20, 2011 in machine |

Now one of the things I enjoy playing, with my mate, is an old-school game called “Dogfight” – great fun of plane v plane between German and American allied forces, set in WWI, when fair game and honour existed between aces. One of the game elements is a cannon: A fairly clever figurative model that […]

124: May the Fourth Be With You

Posted by wonko on May 4, 2011 in humanoid, scifi |

Now the date is a word-play on a classic Star Wars line, and what better to celebrate Star Wars Day than with C3P0: This is a mask – even from an A4 sheet it is quite large – I Hazard to suggest that an A3 sheet would make one that was wearable. Fairly happy with […]

87: Grim Reaper

Posted by wonko on March 28, 2011 in humanoid |

Thanks for the suggestion Simon, this little “Reaper” does not look so grim: A relatively simple fold, few features, suggestive of form, I like it. Looks a little like a Dementor from Harry Potter’s world (except it is carrying a worrying scythe). Why a Grim Reaper? One computer dies, another is built to replace it, […]
