Chinaman Papercraft

"China, a wonderful and unique country, over the centuries brought up generations of people who eat with chopsticks, but never eat standing, who keep the secret of national tea ceremony and master most captivating matrial arts. The Chineese are a nation with great future, positive and friendly people, open for communication, ready to come to you with open arms.

At the moment of this website’s creation the population of China was 1 320 968 342 people. We created exactly the same number of paper patterns of little Chinese, which you can download, assemble and accept in your home and heart." - www.chinamanpapertoy.com

Viking Papercraft

"1000 years ago, Viking mariners set out from their fledgling colony in Greenland and became the first Europeans to discover and explore North America. They called the land Vinland the Good, settling at place known today as L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland, Canada. " - Smithsonian National Museum of National History

"The scourge of Europe from roughly the ninth through the 11th centuries, the Vikings and their fast, seaworthy vessels are said to have reached as far as North America around 500 years before Columbus. These craft were characterized by a single central mast about 20 meters high and a single sail. A partially preserved vessel has been discovered on the shores of Norway's Oslo Fjord." - Canon Creative Park

We don't have anything unique today (I'm still working on it), so well have some Viking papercraft for now. Why Vikings??? I'm not quite sure, I just randomly selected from the finished models that are waiting to be posted. It's from Canon 3D Papercraft, under the Buildings of the World section of the page. Plenty of good and easy paper models that will keep you busy while I finish something new.

The Incredible Hulk Papercraft

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, the Marvel films panel revealed some details on one of next year's highly anticipated comic book movie, The Incredible Hulk. What? your probably thinking, hey, didn't they do a movie of the Hulk already? yes they did, but it was a crappy version so they're doing this remake. There was also some new info. on the Iron Man movie, but we'll stick with the green guy for today.

We all know that Ang Lee's 2003 version of the film aptly named "The Hulk" didn't get a warm reception from the regular moviegoers and fans alike, hopefully this time, with a new director (Louis Leterrier) and a new cast (Edwarton Norton as Bruce Banner, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross and Tim Roth as Abomination) they'll come up with a better script and an improved and better CGI. It's scheduled to be released for the Summer of '08 but until then here's a Hulk papercraft from okipapa for all the fans out there. The PDF is roughly 9MB, and has a hulk-size 19 pages on it, good luck with this one.
