G1 Transformers Papercraft: Soundwave and Buzzsaw

In the Transformers G1 universe, Soundwave is a Decepticon who transforms into a micro-cassette player. Soundwave commands an army of "cassette troops" who, when in their cassette form, may be stored in Soundwave's chest. The Decepticon cassettes in most cases transform into robot animals that are warrior spies. This papercraft Soundwave and Decepticon cassette bird of prey Buzzsaw were created by DeviantART member BHAAD. Templates for these paper models may be downloaded here.

Printable Origami Dragon

Here's a novel idea: instead of buying pre-printed patterned origami paper, how about printing paper with a pattern of your own design. That is exactly what Jacque Davis did with this print and fold origami dragon. A copy of her template may be found on Jacque's Flickr page. I really like what she did with the colors and geometric designs!

Futuristic Helicopter Paper Model

This futuristic papercraft helicopter was originally published in the August 2010 issue of ABC, a Czech language magazine for children. To our good fortune, designer Jan R√ľkr, now graciously offers the template for the helicopter on his personal website: Aliens Papercraft.  Although the instructions are in Czech, excellent 3D diagrams allow even a non-speaker of the language to easily build the model. The official name of the helicopter is the "Raven 4".

DIY Papercraft Thor Hammer for Kids

I have featured several different paper models of the war hammer of Marvel Comics' Thor, but this is the first one that is specifically scaled for children. Offered by the Disney Family website, the template for this model may be downloaded here. In both Norse mythology and also in comic books published by Marvel, Thor's hammer is named "Mjolnir". Looking for the Thor helmet in the photo? It is located here.

Marvel Papercraft: Black Cat Bust

Here's a bust of Marvel Comics' Black Cat (no pun intended!). The Black Cat, whose real identity is Felicia Hardy, has a long romantic history with Spider-Man. At one point in their relationship she gained his trust enough for him to reveal his secret identity to her. The template for the bust may be downloaded here. The download includes both Pepakura PDO and PDF files. Model design by Paper-Rock. Build photo by Hugo-Drax.

Chibi Breath of the Wild Link Papercraft

Out of the papercraft that has been released for the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild video game, this Link model has to be my favorite.  Given the style of this papercraft, it might look like a model from the 2002 Wind Waker game, but it is actually a chibi version of how an adult Link appears in the newest game. A download of the template may be found here. Breath of the Wild was released in 2017.
