Awesome. That looks a damn sight easier to assemble than the real thing. Wish i had one of these rather than the FW one to put together lol. Excellent work!

Layered card stock from Wal-mart, some toilet paper wrapped around a custom pattern for the hoses and some toilet paper tube sections for the hip joints. I had to start reinforcing some of the stress points with hot glue. It seems to be helping a lot.

As I stated earlier, this was a "can this be done in paper alone?" project. The original templates are designed for mixed media, primarily plastic.

Currently I am gathering all the modified template pages for the one I built and will be putting them together into a pdf. Like it's source, It will be basic in detail (but have all the trim work, cobra head, and some extra details) and up to you to develop. I will also be including an alternate thigh template I developed that looks closer to the FW release that I ultimately did not use as I wanted mine to look closer to the miniature.

LTP, I don't know if it was easier, but I can tell you it is lighter, cheaper, and bigger!

OK, I have UL my reaver variant. It is US Letter format, and as I never intended to release the model, may have some fit issues (the hip to thigh join is a problem as the original hip is....unique). It does have the head variant, radiator, raised edge detail, and optional upper thigh assembly if someone wants to take a crack at it:

Due to some server errors with trying to UL pics to this forum, I've had to post the updates to my Deviant Art site:

Well, I finally got the big baby painted completely (pics to follow later, the attached was shot a while ago, but I had problems UL). It was 2 years ago this month that I started this project.

I had taken it to my youngest daughter's 4th grade class last year when it was a white model with no detail, so today it made a return visit at lunch time to show them how it turned out. I arrived a little early and the second graders were finishing up lunch when I arrived and it drew a spontaneous standing ovation (that was surprising and thoroughly enjoyable). Her classmates (and former teacher) were impressed. Soon as I get the rockets in the launch tubes (and it's daylight) I'll get some pics up.

Two years to the month after starting this project, I am calling it done. I am probably going to change out the missiles, but aside from that, it is complete. 23" tall x 15" x 15". I learned a lot.

The purpose for this project was to test out whether a paper model this big could be made completely out of paper, stand under it's own weight and look reeeeeeeeeallly cool doing it. I believe the answer is yes on all three counts, but were I to do it again, I would probably redesign how the toes are joined to the foot, reinforce the knee and redesign the hip assembly.

Although the time spent two years, part of that time was figuring out how to accomplish what I wanted to do. Specifically the thigh and hip assembly which went through several design/build/redesign iterations to get the final result. A happy unintended result is that it looks like it is stalking rather than static.

Now, please bear with me as I bore you to death with pictures of my "Big Baby"....
