Caldari Kestrel Papercraft

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted in a month! It honestly doesn't feel like that long. And I've removed the chat box. Too many spammers keep posting there. Sorry Puppy!

I haven't been focusing on my clay and building modifications lately. Instead, I've been working on a Caldari Kestrel papercraft for the hubby.


This template was definitely not created with the intention of releasing it to the public, I don't think. It feels more like a model that was unfolded in Pepakura Designer and had minimal edits done to it. The creator released the template on the EVE forums anyway, after he posted pictures of his awesome ships.

This template has 33 pages, filled with tiny fiddly bits. X_X The project has turned out to be a lot more time consuming than I had expected. A LOT.


Well, I'm slowly getting there. I think I have about 6 pages of parts left to cut out (I hope) and then after that there will be all the folding and the figuring out of how to fit each fiddly bit onto the other fiddly bits. I'm glad Pepakura Viewer tells you where everything goes!
