Papercraft Dice Illusion

Remember that papercraft dragon that gave the illusion its eyes were following you about the room? Here is another papercraft illusion built around the same principle. When rotated back and forth, the apparently 3D dice appear to hover and roll over the game board. Instructions and a free PDF template for the illusion may be downloaded at Instructables.com. This papercraft was designed by paper engineer extraordinaire Rob Ives.

Star Wars First Order AAL Paper Model

The first two movies of the newest Star Wars trilogy have introduced loads of new spaceships and vehicles. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens we had our first glimpse of the New Order's Atmospheric Assault Lander (AAL). An AAL is a troop carrier that functions much like the Cheyenne dropships in the Alien franchise. The AAL can transport up to twenty stormtroopers. Near the tower at the rear of the ship is a gun turret to provide protection for the troops as they disembark. This 28-30mm scale AAL paper model was created by Papierschnitzel. The template for the model may be downloaded here.

Star Wars Porg Paper Toy

Porgs are one of the most talked about of the new creatures that were introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (I think cuteness may be a factor). ^^ Porgs are the bird-like animals that inhabit the island where the aged Luke Skywalker makes his home. This porg paper toy was created by Fold Up Toys. The single piece, printable template for the toy may be downloaded here.

Printable Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

This printable Christmas tree Advent calendar from Canon Creative Park has an ingenious method for counting the days until Christmas. The tree contains numbered drawers corresponding to the days of December.  After the appropriate drawer is pulled out of the tree (and the treat inside consumed!), the drawer is then replaced in the tree backwards. On the back of each drawer is an ornament for the Advent tree! This papercraft was designed by Masahiro Watanabe.

3D Papercraft Doomguy Mask

Remember the in-game space marine avatar in the original Doom video game? His steely face was the health indicator in the heads-up display at the bottom of the screen. Using the 2D HUD image of the Doomguy's face, Dean Swanton created this printable 3D papercraft mask! Dean has graciously allowed me to offer the template for the mask through Tektonten Papercraft. A download of Dean's files may be found here. Be forewarned, the files are in a somewhat raw form and may require some cleanup to improve the build-ability of the model. The first Doom game was released in 1993.
