Is Bill Gates into papercrafts? I'd like to think so. Although I don't have concrete proof, I did find a far off connection. It has to do with Corbis, a digital imaging/stock photography company founded by Bill Gates in 1989 and is located in Mr. Gates' stronghold (Seattle, Washington). Corbis has come up with these wondeful Readymech Camera papercrafts (pin hole) designed exclusively with their images and illustrations. Follow the link below to download the free patterns and instructions.

The official Warhawk web site disappeared for a while, came back with a new look minus the papercrafts. Then a few weeks after that, they put back the paper models, but this time one of the Eucadian Warhawk papercraft was missing, it was the ultra-realistic version. I don't know the reason for that, but what I do know is that the Warhawk Chernovan and Eucadian Jeep Papercraft is now available for you to download. These papercrafts were designed by Nobutaka Mukouyama for Sony Computer Entertainment America.

Photos of this two new paper models have been e-mailed to me several times over the past week and I also saw it floating around on the net as well, but we don't have to wait anymore, it's been officially released so grab them quickly. The Mako papercraft is the one which looks like a stewardess and has a luggage and the Mei papercraft is the mecha musume version, well I'm not quite sure if it's considered a mecha musume at all, that's just my guess.

We've got a new Star Wars papercaft from Japanese sci-fi designer uhu02, it's the cool blue pachyderm-looking Max Rebo from Return of the Jedi. You might remember Max as a part of a trio of aliens playing music for Jaba the Hutt. The group is aptly named Max Rebo Band and they are comprised of Droopy McCool on woodwind, Sy Snootles on vocals, and Max on keyboard. This Max Rebo papercraft is in PDO format so you'll need to download Pepakura to view this file.
