WIP Papertoy: MacTen

My latest papertoy Revolvrr is a great success (at the moment of writing this blog: 1731 downloads)! So what should I do with that knowledge?
Nick Knite suggested that I should make a “Urban protection series”.

I thought about it…. and I think he’s right!
So here a little progress: based upon a MAC 10 here is my papertoy version MacTen.

Original “blueprint” of the MAC10

and my first build (WIP)

And after my first build, I realize that there needs to be a lot of changes to make it as fun as the Revolvrr.
So back to the drawing board, and make it more fun 😀

The model is not ready for download, but let me know how bad you want it (make a comment!!!) and you will be the first (!) to know.
Oh and when your busy commenting, tel me also what should be part (weapons like a Rambo knife, grenade, ….) of the “Urban protection series”!

PUMA – states/suede/clyde – urban paper sneaker

As I mentioned before: I always wanted to do a papertoy sneaker.

When I finished my first PUMA sneakers, and posted it on NPT (Nice Paper Toy), some people mentioned that they liked the model but that there favorite PUMA sneaker is the states/suede/clyde.
I didn’t know that the PUMA states/suede/clyde is a b-boy classic.

So I couldn’t resist to make them too:

I don’t have a download link for this one, and no design yet….
But that will be fixed very soon.

PS.
The excellent Ron Rementilla from Paperkraft.blogspot.com has written about my PUMA First round papertoy (thx for that).
And suggested that readers who wanted a template, leave a comment….

Till now 10 people did and they have received the (WIP) templates…
I call the templates WIP because the instructions are not ready yet.
And because I wanted to make the PUMA clyde first, they are not ready yet.

I’ve been working/experimenting with a curvy papermodel

Because I thought it could be curvier I made an evolution version:

I’m not totally happy with the second model, but I’ve been working to long on it to just throw it away.
So I’m letting you guys/girls decide:

Which one is better?

Model #1

Model #2

and why is that model better?

NoissGrumm – part 2

Since my post about NoissGrumm I’ve modified the legs and arms a little bit 🙂

This is a short explanation about this model:

I’m working for a company named NOISE (http://www.makesomenoise.nl) and I wanted to make a Grumm to “explain” what I’m doing in my spare time.

Now I worked on the legs, feet, arms and hands.
I’m not happy with the hand yet, but that will improve.

Meet my new papertoy: drukk

By accident (I was creating a custom for another paper toy designer) I created a new papertoy.
This is the first time I create a real toy.

It’s called drukk and its still a papertoy in progress (WIP), but here you have an example made in Google Sketchup:
drukk: new papertoy by Matthijs Kamstra aka [mck]

Because it’s not a ‘static’ toy (you could call it a paper automata) I also created a promotional video:

Soon I will post more about drukk
