Anyone got links to any sweet paper model airplanes? Some jet bombers would be sweet...
I have one, but I don't have any pdf instructions:
1. fold paper in half valley, unfold
2. fold top 2 corners to center fold, crease
3. fold back in half, crease
4. fold flap of one side down to the outside of the center crease, repeat on other side, but don't crease, leave it at ~90゜angle

Done (ヽ´ω`)

Not to thread jack...

But I am just getting into Paper Craft. I am trying to pick up a cheap/free inkjet then getting a CIS for it. I know my shit when it comes to printing ect. And I know about paper.

But I am looking to do scenery/buildings/vehicles for Warhammer 40K. I will be getting a self healing mat, good exacto knife and glue.

What paper should I get first? 110gsm? The printer I am looking at is an Epson CX4800.
Just buy some card-stock.

What type. And is the recommended to print on thin cheap paper the glue it to the card stock?
depends what you're doing.

if its some simple textureless low poly mask, that's probably fine.

thicker cardstock makes sturdier builds but are harder to fold and you have to take into account thickness. a tenth of a millimeter per layer can seriously add up. 160gsm and up.

thinner cardstock is easier to fold and do intricate details but won't be as sturdy. 100-150gsm.

Warhammer vehicles, mechs, scenery for warhammer stuff ect. Low res buildings, but the vehicles will be more detailed.

Anyone keep the PDF of this? It's gone from the original canon site and the file isn't distinctive enough to search for.

I didn't see the paper gun thread, so here's a new one. Does anyone have a download link for this model? It's the Seburo M5 from Ghost in the Shell. I looked around and found a 4shared link, but it wasn't working and 4shared is a gay ass website anyway. In the meantime let's go ahead and share some cool papercraft templates and stuff. I'll post a few or maybe post some links. Bonus points for the more detailed and less blocky ones.

The raped lower

and this is the scrap made mag catch. It works at least.
I don't know if it'll help at all, but I have a real ar15 if you want measurements or something from that. The paperclip reinforcement is a good idea, but might look nicer if you straightened it out more with pliers or something. I made his AK a long time ago, but it's lost somewhere.
Yeah, post the measurements.
I forgot that measurements for AR15s are easy to come by. Here are measurements for the whole thing. Maybe some day I'll make one out of paper and shoot .22s out of it. In case you didn't know AR15 is the name of civilian M16/M4 style rifles, so you can look up dimensions and stuff for it with that name instead.

any idea of what you can make with that?

and today I built Nano properly, my screwed up one was bothering the shit out of me
well, mostly -- I squished her ass oddly when attaching the legs to the skirt (that was a bitch, there's like zero room, and then gluing it was the worst), but you'll only notice the big dent when looking straight at her bottom

Thanks. Just ordered some on Amazon.
Cute! I want to make that, or anything from nichijou. I'm too much of a pansy to have that sort of thing in my room though. I took the crow character, changed it a little, declared it my maker mark, and I now put it on everything I make and then some.

I'll post photos next time I make something worth photographing...

Thanks friend, I'll give it a go!
dashes are mountain folds and dash with a dot is a valley fold
thanks OP for the bird (・ิω・ิ)

A lot of people focus on an area of folding, e.g. insects, boxes or tesselation.
What is your favorite area and what get you into it? Also post favorite model. (this one is not folded by me)

winrar. Thanks friend.
Here is another fairy (from Dave Brill's website):
This looks wicked cool can I get the diagram please?
WTF! Open your eyes, moron!

Hey, / po /

How can we set the diagram level?

only the numbers of steps of the diagram?
or we can also take into consideration the more realistic finish?
therefore the realists always more difficult?

Is there a pattern to classify? Example:

Steps 01-10 = Easy
Steps 01-30 = Intermediate
Steps 01-50 = Hard
Steps 01-100 = Complex
Steps 01 - ...... = Super Complex

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The number of steps depends on the diagram, not the complexity of the model.
A CP, for example, is a one step diagram.
To correctly classify the complexity of a model you need to take into account how complex are the steps and how clear are the instructions in that particular diagram of that model. The way you make the diagrams can change the difficulty of the model.

The trouble is that after you figure how to fold something, it becomes simple in a manner of speaking.

I figure it's up to your discretion. I typically compare the model to other artists models and decide based on that. Who am I to argue difficulty with Kamiya?
I'd say pivots and open sinks are intermediate, while closed sinks and extensive layer rearranging would be hard. Spreads are kind of borderline, and sometimes even open sinks can be a bitch. Super complex usually involves some sort of autistic tesselation.
Otherwise there's not really any pattern, no. I wouldn't depend on steps too much.
Everything is one step if you get a pre-creased CP...

It really depends what you consider a single step as well.

hey guys,
I'm looking for a rather simple origami designs, especially for rectangular paper, varying in complexity.

I made it a habit to make cranes of a bus tickets while traveling, but it got boring soon, so I started with the tulips out of two squares and leaving them on the bus.

This is a nice habit, but I wish to make different designs and wanted to ask you guys

do you have similar habits of leaving origami at random places?
What do you make? Do you know any simple, yet good looking designs for this?

Thank you

also, I can't believe this thread is still alive from months ago when I made it. Feels good.

Here's a paper star from the other day for you
I usually leave my little paper dragons EVERYWHERE. My teacher back in highschool had a small culmination of my dragons.
I also liked to leave behind modular cubes as well.
how do you make these paper dragons, I'd love to know!
I too am interested in paper dragons

This is my first time on this board and I see this post. Used to do the exact same thing with wee cranes. a simple pleasure.
