RMDC's junk

Postby RMDC » Mon Jul 16, 2012 12:49 pm

Okay, I don't think I've actually made a show-off thread until now. I just got reminded that I haven't posted any images from my days as a papercrafter, so I figure now's as good a time to start the thread up as any. :nod


PAPERCRAFT:

Puddlejumper from Stargate: Atlantis

Spoiler: show

Stormtrooper helmet and a bomb from Windwaker. I left the bomb open so that I could carry dice around in it... right before my life filled up too much to do tabletop gaming. :/

Snorlax

Skull from Windwaker (looking quite battered), and a partial shot of an adorable Trojan horse craft I found floating about.

This was a brilliant idea by the Paperpokes crew: a Pokemon card with Pikachu extruded into 3D.

I made Lapras before I knew how to make a pretty papercraft, but she was so much fun to put together!

My junk bin. Contains stuff that wound up getting trashed by kids and cats, as well as a few test crafts.

MECH PAPERCRAFT:

For a long time, I used to hang out on a forum specifically for crafting the mechs from Battletech.

Spoiler: show
Image

My pride and joy: a customized Timber Wolf, with mods for the arm guns, the shoulder missile pods, armor plates, and everything, right down to the way the toes connected. I converted a powered armor suit model as well and stuck it on top. The entire diorama commemorates an exhibition match using the Battletech tabletop rules in which my wife's armor unit took down an enormous mech solo. The diorama is in my wife's office where she does lawyering. :nod

Kit Fox with modified guns

Cougar with modified guns

Shadow Cat with modified guns, missile ports, and tissue paper jump jets :P

The Shadow Cat was a fun build - I reinforced the hip and legs so thoroughly that you could take a hammer to them.

I see no junk here. Only some seriously awesome papercraft and some excellent stitching.

Everything is awesome! :D

Ironically, part of the reason I've become so engrossed in stitching is because my printer grew too recalcitrant to allow me to continue papercrafting. :cry:

But now I prefer the portability of stitching, as well as the fact that a dude stitching in public is apparently so mind-blowing to bystanders that I'm singlehandedly destroying the patriarchy wherever I go. :P

I stopped stitching in public when I started getting stared at by other girls around my age who seemed shocked that there were actually younger people who still sewed! You can't win on that front!

haha, I know how that feels. When my father in law first saw that I really really enjoyed stitching, he started questioning certain aspects of my personal life. When others start doing that, I just show them WHAT I'm stitching and that usually causes them to ignore me like they originally would have!

Those are some really awesome papercraft pieces too. Now you have successfully gotten me interested in yet another form of crafting...
Current Projects: Crocheting stuff, writing letters, cross stitching stuff oh, and making beer!
