My new interest!!

For some days now i've been quite bored in building the same old toys, yet now on Nice Paper Toys there is a new group on the forums mainly interested in phoneticontrol's "thought processor" series of toys.
I have been collecting toys for about 6 years now and now have close to 6000 templates and did not realise that I had some of these in my collection, so was interested to see how they came out and once I had made one I was hooked.
I have about 80 of them now and am working through them whilst waiting on jules finishing the plans for the rest of the sinanju model or for shin to bring out another creation, so now I am posting my new builds of these toys.
I'm trying to create a new toy of my own and am working on a custom of Sinner's new totem pole model which is great as I have some of the work already done as I was going to do a custom of nick knite's mechabunny as a tiki totem pole sort of thing so hopefully that will turn out ok when finished......

re-birth of Sinanju model

Well progress was going great on this model until i went to take some pictures of it when it fell off my desk and crashed to the floor. Quite a lot of damage, both legs hanging off, arm fell off and it's two wings/ rockets had crushed at the point where they join to the main body. I have re-built it again but have improved the joints where they attach i.e. ankles,hips,shoulders. I did this by layering three sheets of 140gm card together and cutting to match, they will definitely not fall off now.
The only fault it has now is that it is too heavy on the back of the model, I think it was what had caused the model to fall in the first place. So after a few different designs and shapes i came out with a simple block to support the weight and have added the correct dimensions of the "real" gundam to make it look not so boring and plain. think it works.....
