    From the instructions, it looks impressive.

    Thanks

    After reading the description on this model I wanted to share it as well just in case you over look it.

    "For Halloween this year, I made a papercraft models of famous cars from the movie Ghostbusters, the Ecto 1A. Ghostbusters in one of my favorite movie and cartoon on my childhood. In the past I've seen a very nice papercraft of Ecto 1, so I made another a version of the Ecto 1A which is an upgrade version. Both Ecto-1 and Ecto-1A uses chassis from ambulance / hearse Cadillac 1959. The Papercraft itself is quite detailed, complete with the interior parts inside the car. Although still lacking the proton packs in the car. Necessary to make this papercraft are 2 type of paper, plain paper which 100-120 grams is best and 3 mm thick cardboard for formers and frame. As I happened to read in the news that Hollywood will create the new Ghostbusters movie, but it seems to be a reboot, probably due to the phenomenon of ghosts as the first Ghostbusters movie has not suitable the progress of science now. Will look forward to that movie. I almost forgot, this model is also the first time I remove the password on the PDF file, so the next future template will have no password to open it. It also applied on old files, gradually. Have fun with this papercraft model."

    I see. Having a companion to the Striker would certainly be cool.

    Having Gypsy stood next to Striker would be cool :) If you look on the facebook version of Paper-replika there is a progress report (as such)

    I do have some *.obj & *.pdo files of all the Jaegers we see in Pacific Rim, but they are way beyond my design skills. :hide:
