I love food, heck, everybody loves food! One in particular that's been constantly gaining popularity to a wider audience of food lovers worldwide is sushi, yes, that rolled-up or flattened rice thingy with you-don't-know-what toppings in the middle of it, that's sushi. Japan's most tasty contribution to the culinary world is fast becoming a staple in some major continents. There are many types and varieties of sushi, ranging from simple (salmon/shrimp) to exotic (fugu/shark) and to the absurd (raw deer/chicken). But in order to get the real thing you might want to find a "GOOD" sushi bar or Japanese restaurant instead of picking one up in your local grocery or supermarket. If you've got the dough, I encourage you to visit Nobu, it's worth every penny. Today's post features free sushi paper crafts that also includes a beer cut-out paper model and a turntable paper automata. Free download for these cool and cute crafts are available at the Paper Model Maniax web site. This is the same site were we got the Moichi paper model that we used on the Beginner's video post, feel free to check out their other section comprised of teddy bear paper crafts. Enjoy!

Don't get confused, this is not a repeat of the previous Portal papercraft I posted, that one focused more on the Weighted Companion Cube. This time around it's the actual Portal itself, complete with player, portal gun, weighted cubes, and a wall with portal ends (blue and orange). It depicts the scene of what you will see when you stare on one of the portal ends (mirror effect). This cute and artful tribute is from Tubbypaws and she provides a free download of this paper model at her site.

Indiana Jones is giving it out another try next Memorial Day (2008), entitled Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Yes, the 65 year old Han Solo (aka Harrison Ford) will reprise his role as "Indy", along with his trademark fedora, bullwhip (sometimes a machete), leather jacket, and of course, his extreme fear of snakes. He'll also be accompanied by that Transformers kid (Shia LaBeouf) and two top heavyweights of Hollywood would be working their magic on this one, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Today, We've got a new one from Ninjatoes, it's an Indiana Jones papercraft model, when completed it stands a whopping 13 inches. This paper model is available for free download at Ninjatoes web site.

It was first used to store and transport milk, now it's known globally as one of the most versatile innovations in the area of aseptic liquid food packaging, what is it? why it's the Tetra Pak (company namesake). What does it look like? well, it's that paper carton that holds your milk, orange juice (frozen or not), yogurt, chocolate drink, etc.. Many people might not have known or heard this name but I'm pretty sure you've come in contact with it on your trip to the supermaket or convenience store. In honor of this humble product, Tetra Pak Taiwan is providing this free Tetra Pak papercraft model, complete with inserted straw, for free download. There are two PDF files, one for the simple instructions and one for the pattern. Also, two download links below, one from the actual site (it's the red arrow on the bottom left corner) and the other to a free file server (just in case we eat up all the bandwith on the first one :)
