Link built my papercraft "Star Trek: The Next Generation"'s Enterprise-D as a gift for his mother, who is a big fan of the series! (if only all moms were that cool...! ;o)
All through May, the Dutch television station RTL7 has been showing all the James Bond movies they could (and in June, there are a few more to come still! ;o)
"Moonraker" already aired a week or two ago, but here's an "old" papercraft model of one of the "Moonraker" shuttles from the movie for all James Bond fans and papercrafters! ;o)
People that live alone and have a chronical illness can write down their information on a medical card, so people know who to contact and what to do if they suddenly fall ill. And if you build the papercraft card holder ambulance, people can always find it! ;o)
The "Hof van Saksen" is a Dutch holiday resort where you can stay in luxurious Saxon style farmhouses! (note: this was part of a contest from May 9th - May 30th to win a free stay at the resort, but I didn't find out about it until now so the contest is already over, sorry /...but you can still enjoy building the papercraft farmhouses of course! ;o)
Besides many of real-life Japanese trains, LIPS Garden also made the Gouka form DenLiner train from the "Kamen Rider Den-O" anime series!

With the new Disney movie "Maleficent" premiering, it's no surprise that people like to make papercraft toys of the main character Maleficent herself, played by Angelina Jolie! ;o)

There's not much time anymore, but if you're quick (and if you're a US resident over 18!) you can still enter DreamWorks' "How To Train Your Dragon 2" Dragon Riders Challenge #5 by downloading and building a Toothless dragon papercraft toy until Tuesday, June 3, 2014!

The papercraft website of Webdude Rick has been unavailable for a long time already, which made a lot of papercrafters very sad, because Webdude Rick made many neat papercraft models, like the Neon Genesis Evangelion Angels, the Akira bike, Wacky Races vehicles, the Pink Panther and lots more...
The website is still down, but Webdude Rick has uploaded many of his papercraft models to a public Google Drive folder so papercrafters can still enjoy his works! ;o)

Meet "Micki", the old fire truck of the Mondorf volunteer fire department (of course they have a new, modern fire truck now ;o)
If you like these freebies, be sure to check out Murph's Models' webshop to find lots more cool papercraft models! ;o)
Nowadays when your eyesight is going bad, you can either get glasses, contact lenses, or even laser eye surgery, but maybe in the future, you could get a whole new eye implant augmentation, like in the "Deus Ex" video game! (let's just hope it won't be a "D.I.Y." thing like Arnie did in that nasty motel room in "The Terminator"... ;o)

The Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane helicopter is basically just a cockpit with rotors, so it can lift very heavy loads where normally the cargo or passenger cabin would be, giving it its distinctive shape.

First released in 1989, the Reebok Pump became somewhat of a status icon among kids in the 1990's, because its pump system to provide a unique fitting cushion made the shoes very expensive...!

"Panzergrenadiers" are basically "motorized infantry soldiers": support for and supported by combat vehicles to fight a "Blitzkrieg", to defeat the enemy in short, fierce battles and avoid being dragged into a war of attrition!
