Epson Papercraft - NSX 2008

The Epson Nakajima Racing has updated their papercraft web site to include their latest entry into the Super GT (formerly JGTC - Japan Grand Touring Car Championship). Team Epson has been using a modified Honda NSX since they started joining the grand touring car race series back in 2004. The Espon NSX touring car papercraft pictured above has their new paint job for 2008, you can also find the other paper models of the past cars that they've used from previous years - all of it is basically the same car, just a different paint job. There's also a set of papercrafts of the pit crew, complete with trailer, tools, machines, and a pit stand. And for the curious, Team Epson has never won the JGTC or Super GT.

Fantasy Papercraft - Terrestial Voyager

Based on the highly artistic work of fantasy artist and master illustrator Rodney Matthews (In Search Of Forever), here is the Terrestial Voyager papercraft from designer Andrew Gillespie. It's got an Asian theme going on and reminds me of the old Hong Kong junk boats, but bigger and on wheels. The design and layout of the pattern is very well made, I can tell that a serious amount of time went into planning this paper model. There are three files to download for this behemoth, instructions (41 pages), the pattern (54 pages), and reverse side(7 pages).

The Simpsons Papercraft House

Let's add another Simpsons papercraft to our collection, we had the Spider Pig paper model crawling in our ceilings a couple months ago and now the Simpsons papercraft house has landed in our doorsteps. It looks pretty accurate and easy to build, one thing that I've got to point out is that the color of the external walls is a bit off, D'oh, I don't remember it being the same as Homer's skin color - a little tweaking and it'll be fine. Anyways, this great cartoon landmark was designed by Andrew McCauley and is available at his geocities page. You can also check out two other building papercrafts currently available, includes the Washington monument and the World Trade Center.

Ghost In The Machine Paper Toy

It's only been a few days since we first featured them here on Paperkraft, but a new paper toy has emerged from Jack Hankins' Horrorwood site. It's called the "Ghost in the Machine" paper toy and has two separate items for you to build, the person - holding a coffee cup and the machine - with a ghost sticking out of its side. Not quite sure what kind of machine it is but it looks like some sort of cash register/PC hybrid. I also noticed a recurring theme on the paper toy, the hair-covering-the-eyes thing is the same one we saw on their previous paper toy, I'm assuming its the designer's trademark style.

Portal Papercraft - the cake is a lie!

Yes, this is the black forest cake that was promised as a reward on the Portal video game and no, you can't eat it.

The cake was used by GLaDOS as a motivating perk for solving the intricate puzzles on the laboratory. This cake papercraft is from designer Mike McDermott, check it out.

With their continued fascination of Hieronymus Bosch's macabre artwork, the Glue2Chronicle site has put up a new monster papercraft based on the triptych called "The Garden of Earthly Delights". You might remember a couple months back, we featured two other monster papercrafts from Glue2Chronicle based on that same triptych. You can see this bird monster on the right side panel of the triptych, this is Hieronymus Bosch's depiction of hell. In it, the bird monster is sitting on a high chair wearing what looks like a kettle on its head and flower vase for shoes, a human torso is half-way inside its mouth and a piece of long cloth is draping over it's legs. If it souds interesting to you, check out the links below.
