Custom Tanaka/Lagerfeld toys

I loved Shin Tanaka's New work he did for Karl Lagerfeld's Paris shop so had decided to do a couple of customs based on the video promo for the show, pictures 3 and 4 are of the the chibby that was available for download from the main website but hope you all like the rest ^__^....

Halloween Zombietus

I came across Nick Knite's template for his Cactus toy which he had sent me quite a while ago and wanted to do something with it for Halloween and I came up with this Zombie/Cactus fellow, hope you all like it and the template is available on Nick's website with a number of other great Halloween toys to download also, you'll find them at

Halloween Goodies

Well Halloween will be upon us soon, does not seem that long ago since the last one? Anyway I had got these goody bags off of the canon paper craft site () a couple of years ago now, they are still available to download though, and since I built the pumpkin teddy ones last year thought I would switch and make these ones this year, Margaret's even filled them already for the kids ^__^

Gundam Boxzet

I have always loved the Boxzet toys and built the first one a good while back (think it was the super robot one) and whilst looking for something to build came across a folder with all the Boxzet toys and the RX-78-2 Gundam by Bymanstudio caught my eye so I had to build it. Love the design it also came with a small model box containing instructions and model pieces sheets which I think was quite clever..

Sword impulse Gundam

Well since I am hovering between projects at the moment I basically went through my files and just picked something at random and I came across the "Sword Impulse" Gundam from Jules over at . I am only building the head of this toy as I don't really want to build the whole thing, I just love the designs of the heads..

BearBearQ project

Well I managed to finish off my custom BearBearQ toy quite a few days ago, it actually took me longer to find and make the net for it (which is made of card and a piece of netting from a garlic bulb packaging). The design is based very loosely around M.C.Escher's butterflies print, I was going to cover the whole of the toy but then decided to make it a "swirling" pattern instead, which turned out better than I thought it would.
Anyway it was my first attempt at painting so let me know how I got on as this time...please. ^__^

Sulaco Project

Well I have finally finished the Sulaco project and I am very pleased at how it came out. I have made a couple of stands for it to sit on resting on the antenna array sticking out from the bottom of the craft and have made a small plaque with details of what/where things are on the ship.

I finished this over a week ago now but have tried to go onto further projects not with much success though, maybe i need to take a small break in paper modelling. I have had a BearBearQ DIY vinyl toy for a few years now so it might be time to paint that up for a change and then get back down to business.

I have quite a few ideas for my own design in paper toys so that will be my next project once i have finished the vinyl toy...

New pictures of Sulaco project

I took some photos a while back but had not managed to get them up on here until now. The project i am working on is a model of the Sulaco from the aliens movie, a space marines ship created by that great Czech paper modeller Jan R√ľkr, who has created quite a few sci-fi models. I think it was the overall size of the project that interested me, more of a challenge and this will be the last large scale model that i will be building, he says hopefully. So here's some pics of the build so far, I only have the tail/engine section to build now so the length will be another 1/3 added on to what i have already...

Mystery Project

Been a bit quite lately. Have been trying to sort out my computer as I have too many hard drives (5 of them) about 4tb of data which is in a bit of a mess so I have been trying to go through it all to see what I can throw out!! In the meantime I have been doing another project and am about half way though now and the only clue I can give is that it is 5 1/2 feet long and blue grey in color!! here's a couple of teaser shots!!

Hope you have enjoyed my collection of budogs, I do still have another 5 to post but I could not wait any longer to get this up on my site,plus they are only animal ones (monkey, gorilla, crane, onikawi rail (not sure on that) and a duck) But i will add these onto the collection when I get around to releasing the whole collection, so once again thanks for looking!! ^__^
