This is my first papermodel design. A 1:1 replica of “lem FOX STIK”. A PVAc base glue that many papermodelers in Indonesia use to build papermodel. The idea of modeling this glue container popped up in my head some times ago. There’s no particular reason though. I just think it’s not a complex form, and I think I can model it myself. I don’t think I should start with a mecha or a tank. I’ll just start from the simple one.
I have a plan to model all tools I use to build papermodel. But of course this plan depends on my spare time, courage, and willingness.
By the way, if you look carefully in the picture, my model is slightly different from the original one. It’s on purpose. I modify it that way, so it is easier to build. There’s no use to design a realistic model, but very very hard to build, right?
Anyway… I wish you enjoy building it as much as I enjoy designing it!
Whoa.. No update for several months. My job as an ‘all-in-one’ IT staff has kept me busy everyday. They really know how to keep me busy
Several weeks ago, I got a new activity, which shortly after that, becoming my new hobby . It’s called Papercraft or Papermodel.
Papercraft or papermodel is a replica or model of the real world (and or virtual) objects, such as vehicle, building, certain characters from video games or movie, etc, which is built by using paper as the material. There are various kinds of papercraft, from the simplest to the highly detailed one. From the unscaled miniature model, to the precisely scaled model.
These models are designed by skilled people which is called papercrafters or papermodelers. There are 2 methods in designing papercraft. One is called ‘Scratch and build’ (also known as SB in papercraft world), and the other is by using 3D softwares to design and unfold (transforming the 3D model to printable 2D patterns) the model. Both methods require some skills, creativities, and efforts to be able to design a good papermodel.
