I have found three robot papercrafts for you guys. Some of you may have seen these models already but hopefully, the newbies will like ’em. I’m talking about the 1:100 gundam MK 5 papercraft-(the blue robot), the Hazel gundam which is about 30 cm high when built and the wildgoat robot from the playstation game “Front Mission.” Check ’em out here. The files contain pdo files which can be opened by Pepakura Viewer.
I first knew about gundam 11 years ago when my mom bought a gift for my cousin’s birthday. I was 13 years old back then. If I remember it right, it was a $10 SD gundam model kit. Before they had it wrapped, I peeked inside and I was amazed of the quality and the number of parts. I always wanted to build my own toys.
A week later, we went back to the mall and started the hobby of collecting gundams. I bought about 9 SD gundams and 7 villain robots. Price ranged from 10-15 dollars. After about a year, I stopped collecting as I got busy with highschool.
After 3 years, I saw a 1/144 model kit of Turn-A gundam on sale for just $3.50 and again, my love for gundam models came back to life. I also bought a couple of 1/100 models. My dream is to buy a Master Grade model someday. Right now, I’m happy building papercraft models.
Gundam Shop is a site that I visit every once in a while. Checking all those models make me drool over them. My favorite is the MG(Master Grade) section. Check it out guys.
Here’s another version of the SD Freedom Gundam which is much simpler that the one posted earlier because it doesn’t have a weapon and a shield. You can download the jpg and pdo files here. You can get the instructions by clicking the following links: head, chest, backpack, skirt, arms and legs. Enjoy!
This is one of the best looking Gundam papercrafts I’ve seen. You have to print out 15 pages of parts to build this cool model. Download the color-print zip for the colored parts here. As for the instructions, check out these pages:inst. 1, inst. 2, inst. 3, inst. 4, inst. 5 and inst. 6 Click on the link at the bottom of each post for the build photos to appear.
Here’s the very good-looking sd gundam zz papercraft. This complicated model has some very small parts that might be too difficult for paper modeling beginners. You can download the 9 parts here. You can also search this blog for the instructions.
