    Wow you have a heck of a lot of patience. I wouldn't survive trying to build something like that lol.

    Looking forward to more pictures. Awesome work so far.

    The challenge is taking it beyond what you and others expect to come up with the unexpected. Thanks, all.

    It'd be amazing to know if it's articulated or posable.

    Thought about it, but then I'd have to rebuild the leg assembly (and that ain't happenin').

    Closest this one gets is that the weapons and head mount are magnetized.

    That is definitely something I have never seen anywhere, ever. Incredible! The colors make it POP!! It's refreshing to see a painted model rather than printed too. Maybe you will start a new trend! :)

    Couple of pic updates.

    I have most of the upper body painted and decided to start the storage case which is 28" x 20" x 20" (70 cm x 50 cm x 50cm). The body is starting to fatigue due to all the travel (I work on it wherever I can) and probably would not have had as much problems had I doubled up on the thickness of the paper at stress points. Nonetheless, we fight on.

    Wow! Seeing that come to life like that is kind of weird. That so amazing, it's hard o grasp. It could be good if you posted the highest possible resolutions of the models ans a download. You could them up to 2 mb in size. XNView can make huge pictures without having them large. I Maybe you could send some some massive detail shots. That is so incredible, it's kind of hard to take in.

    Couple more pics. Started on the lower half of the body and guns. Thought the gun barrels turned out pretty good. Sorry for the blurry pics.

    I honestly don't think I've seen anything like this in any medium. It's kind of hard to grasp in pictures. The Scroll work (forgive me if my terms are wrong) on the shoulders, all of that is just so awesome. It would be nice to see a pic really close up showing that isn't printed on. I know it isn't and in the pictures, the way it shows tells some. It's just nice to see texture, real texture, not printed on, use your imagination graphics. :thumb:

    Scrollwork is the term I use. :)

    I'll see what I can do about getting some closer detail shots. I should note that the dark blue areas are not just paint, but tinted artist's gel medium applied roughly to give it a rough, cast iron look (maybe a little too rough....oh well).

    That's what I am trying to express. You can see that's there much more there, this isn't don't with a printer, or at least none like I've ever sen before! :)

    Well, I just entered it in Art Prize...should be interesting to see how it fares with the "fine arts" crowd.

    Well, I finally got the big baby painted completely (pics to follow later). It was 2 years ago this month that I started this project.

    I had taken it to my youngest daughter's 4th grade class last year when it was a white model with no detail, so today it made a return visit at lunch time to show them how it turned out. I arrived a little early and the second graders were finishing up lunch when I arrived and it drew a spontaneous standing ovation (that was surprising and thoroughly enjoyable). Her classmates (and former teacher) were impressed. Soon as I get the rockets in the launch tubes (and it's daylight) I'll get some pics up.

    My son's school is so "lame" I wonder if they would give me a hard time because it displays weapons. More of the "Politically Ignorant" stuff.

    This is really incredible. I am hesitant to call it a model as it seems so much more than that. A Paper Sculpture? There must be a better term? Incredible!!:inw:
