Henry Ford once said about his Model T: "Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black."
Nowadays you can choose from lots more colours though, even on these paper versions of the Suzuki Alto. ;o)

Paper-Replika made several different papercraft Iron Men already (and other models too of course ;o) and now they're working on one that I think will make many papercrafting Iron Man fans happy I think: the Hulkbuster suit, from the new Avengers movie, "Age of Ultron"!

After the blocky, MineCraft style tanks last time and the experimental spheroid tanks for Christmas, this time "World of Tanks" made some "normal" armoured fighting vehicles again: two versions of the FV4101 Cromwell Heavy Anti Tank Gun, or "Charioteer"!

When people think of robots, usually they imagine some strong, metallic machine, but the healthcare robot Baymax from the 2014 Disney animated movie "Big Hero 6" is inflatable and huggable! ;o)

kiri-chan1990 must have gotten inspired by the Mini Papercraft toys from Gus Santome, because she made her own chibi papercraft Luffy from the anime series "One Piece" and Alex and Piper from "Orange Is The New Black" Netflix series!

The hi-res "Caprica Police" repaint that blake7 made from my Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II had a small error in it (a small piece of part 53 got accidentally cut off from the template), so blake7 sent me an updated file that's now available from my papercraft webpage.
But as you can see, that's not the only news from blake7: he also sent me a new Battlestar Galactica Viper Mk.II repaint, a NASA version this time! ;o)

Christopher Tucker (Rhaven Blaack) and Marcell von dem Berge (Revell-Fan) liked the papercraft tabletop miniatures from TCF Gaming so much, that they customized some of the Paper Protagonists into pilots from the classic "Battlestar Galactica" and "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" series!

Where does Uhu02 find the time to make all those paper models so quickly one after the other lately? ;o) Here's his newest one, the Pilgrim 7000 robot (in upright or squatting position) from the 2014 movie "Automata"!
"Melissa & Joey" sees Melanie (Mel) Burke taking in her niece Lennox and nephew Ryder after their parents are sent to jail because of their involvement in a financial scandal.
Later, Joe Longo also finds himself at Mel's doorstep, demanding a job from the sister-in-law of the man who caused him his high-paying job as an investment trader. But after seeing the trouble the inexperienced Mel has raising two teenagers who had nothing to do with the scandal, he becomes: the manny...

Although "World of Tanks" is known for spending a lot of research on making their historical World War II tanks very detailed and life-like in the game, and the papercraft models are not far behind!
But they also don't shy away from making more crazy-looking (but not so unrealistic! ;o) spherical tanks and even walking tanks, and now these blocky ones that look like they came straight out of an old 8-bit or Minecraft game! ;o)

Instructabot is the mascot for the Instructables website, where people can share "how to"'s on all kinds of projects, like "how to make your own papercraft Instructabot with movable parts"! ;o)

The Emma Maersk was the first container ship from the Maersk E Series, which until 2012 were the largest container ships ever built, able to carry 14,770 twenty-foot shipping containers...!
Although a Möbius strip does only have one side, I'm not sure this 3D shape where the inside becomes the outside becomes the inside is really a Möbius knot, which I thought was a piece of string (or whatever) without ends (e.g. a circle/band) that is knotted trough its own loop...?
To me this looks kinda like a variation on a Klein bottle, which itself is made from Möbius strips again, though! ;o)
Or maybe it's a combination of the two?
So yeah, even just talking about it is mind-boggling! ;o)
