    I couldnĀ“t find a Judge Dredd badge from the 1995 movie with Sylvester Stallone in papercraft anywhere on the Internet! Only the comic book-version. And I really, really, really wanted the one with an eagle head coming out of it on the top!
    Solution?
    Design and make one myself!

    First, make a background from a nice badge photo.
    Then, cut out all the parts that neeed to come out of it in order to make it a realistic badge in full size.

    Starting with the eagle head and a small beak.
    Hard getting that shape done! Tricky, to say the least!

    ...attach the bottom part of the beak and do one of the "eagle wings" of the badge!

    Then on with designing a back part, with a nice photo on it of the badge being worn! :)

    Time to do the letters. I decided to do it the hard way, with all letters on top of the (just finished) curved raised middle part of the badge.

    All the small holes in the letters had to have inner "walls" and this took a loooong time to do!
    Remember, I had to construct all the parts that were needed!

    In the end, totally worth the hard work! :)
    The letters look great with all those "walls" in place when glued onto the curved part!

    Finished all the other parts (sorry, forgot to take pictures) really happy so far! :)
    Just the sides of the badge left to cut and glue.

    With all the sides in place I added an extra v-shaped "wall" in the middle for support.

    Trying to fit all the parts together for the final badge. A lot of glue and a lot of time made it progress slowly until...

    Holy cow! That's spectacular! If we still had the Model of the Month I would definitely say this be a candidate for it. WOW! It takes my breath away. The way of making the single letter really adds to the realism, the design of the back plate is ingenious and the texture is gorgeous. Way to go, Craftman! :thumb: :inw::goldcup:

    Rogerio, my dear friend, this badge is to be worn by a JUDGE only, so it is EARNED and in no way downloaded. angel

    Nice one!
    Anyway, there is a badge made by Jan Rukr, much easier but still nice: http://aliens.humlak.cz/aliens/aliens_papirove_modely_gb.htm
    With Book of Law. And, well, with Lawgiver too.. ;)

    P.S.: Seems you'll have to click the Banner Menu on the right side of Jan's site and look for the Bonus models and the Judge Dredd banner there. :thumb:
