My First Gundam Papercraft

Reading fellow otaku blogs is interesting to me. From getting to view fanart to knowing anime and all topics under the sun, otaku blogs imo, are a very good source of information.

One or two weeks back when i visited fellow otaku Kamlau's site, i read about making your own paper gundam from this post of his.

I was thinking of giving it a try just to see how difficult it would be. So I downloaded the artwork and got it printed on an A4 size plain paper. Normal printer paper is quite thin and so i stuck it onto some thick magazine cover which was lying around (looks like i just recycled something).

Cutting the artwork was easy. Joining them was easy for the bigger parts. The tiny parts were quite tiny, at around 1/2 or less of a cm. so had to use some tape to hold some parts together.

Overall it looks good (could have made him better if i had more deft hands), and the total height is just about 10 cms. Chibi gundams. lol. kept an AA cell next to it for comparison.

Also downloaded some other free anime girl models from the pepacura site gallery.
All in all it was quite fun to do this. Do give it a try if you want something to do inyour spare time.
