Lara sure looks a bit strange in this position without the rope...! ;o)
It's is only a first, sloppy test build, but I think I will change some parts of Lara's head, because it's very difficult to make the cheeks look good this way...
Attaching the hair was nice and easy with the semi-"flat surface" method, so that I will keep of course. ;o)

|Sev Trek original Enterforaprize paper model|
Although the Sev Wide Web isn't really maintained anymore by its owner, John Cook, the site is left online as an archive of the many webcomics that he made over the years.
In case the spaceship made from a beercan, pizza and pair of cigarettes didn't tip you off already: the Sev Wide Web is a very funny parody on many famous science fiction and fantasy movies and series, like Sev Trek (Star Trek), Sev Wars (Star Wars), Dr. Whatshisname (Dr. Who), Hairy Plopper (Harry Plotter) and many more, and also several original cartoon series like Terrible Twos and The Pits. ;o)
At one point, they even made a 41 minutes animated movie, Sev Trek: Pus in Boots (link; not to be confused with that Shrek spin-off, Puss in Boots ;o)
Unfortunately, the Sev Wide Web was taking up too much of John's time to continue making new cartoons, but paid members can still see all of the cartoons he made over the years, and each day you can read a couple of them for free: On This Day
So, what does all that have to with papercraft? ;o)
Well, years ago, Erwin de Jong from the Cut & Paste Sci-Fi website made two papercraft models of the Sevships from the Star Trek Sev Trek parody!
Captain Jet-Lag Pinchard's Enterforaprize-D from Sev Trek The X Generation (transl.: Captain Jean-Luc Picard's Enterprise-D from Star Trek The Next Generation) is still available for $9,00 from the Sev Shop: link
|papercraft Enterforaprize-D, available from the Sev Shop for $9,00|
But as John updated the site over the years, it kinda got lost in the process...
Although I did manage to find it again on an archived version of the Sev Wide Web, I felt it deserved a more permanent place on the web, so I managed to contact John and Erwin.
Although John doesn't update the Sev Wide Web anymore, he didn't mind Erwin uploading it to his own Cut & Paste Sci-Fi site, and they even gave me permission to host the original Enterforaprize as a featured model on my weblog!
(although I hope Erwin's Cut & Paste Sci-Fi site will stay online for many more years to come,
because he has a lot more great science-fiction models! ;o)

As you can see, I finished the second test build of the young Lara papercraft vignette!
So far so good, although as always there are some small things that I will change on the final model, but that's what the test build is for. ;o)
I made a simple "rope" by rolling up a strip of paper and then bending it into shape and it works pretty well (being made out of paper too, young Lara is not very heavy ;o) but you could also use a piece of electrical wire or any other thin, metal wire of course.
