Life Size Papercraft Minmay!

Recommended Posts

well guys its time. after some google searching i fond that someone pulled the 3d models from Uta-Macross. sadly it seems like the forums theard the models is on is dead and most of the links that ppl posted r dead but there were a few that worked. thats where i got Minmay

this is where i got the files. maybe someone can give that thread live or maybe someone on here can do what these guys did but not have the links die. - https://xnalara.org/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1590

so in the next few day i'm going to start this build up.

Are they able to pose them in ways that actually have a bit more life like look and feel to them? If so, it sounds like a fun project that I'd like to take on. I'd probably work on a Sheryl, since I can't afford the roughly $18,000 price tag..

Now that's what I'm talking about. Being able to put them in some of their classic poses would make them really worth building. I need to learn about papercraft.

If you wire frame it, you could actually bondo it all to smooth it out, and then paint her up as she's supposed to be painted, and you'd have a pretty legit looking statue.

im geting ever so closer to her being done. also sadly i cant go to the con, since i dont have the money for a drive like that sadly. i would love to go but i dont want to sound like im asking for a hand out. also yes i know my room is cancer to the eyes and needs to get burned, im going to clean my room up and make it look better, it just gets really messy when im doing a build like this and i really dont want to clean up until the build is done
