Marshall Alexander is, like me, one of the designers that are invited to contribute to the book made by Matt Hawkins (read more).
But why haven’t I written about him before? Well, Marshall didn’t have a blank template to customize!
When I started a forum topic on NicePaperToys about my todo-list Marshall wasn’t even on that list!
But Marshall decided that he had practiced enough and published 3 models in the Foldskool series.
I didn’t have the time to build or customize it at that time, but later I downloaded a template and was amazed at the skills used to create this template (it in one piece). And I needed to create a custom for this beautiful piece of paper-art!!
Perhaps the correct order would be, to first write something about Marshall, and then post the custom that I did, but what the heck. I have created a Foldskool Hero: and my Foldskool hero is the Batmobile. And customizing is more fun when you can do something extra with the model…
I have modified the model a little and added some extra parts…. You still can make the model in one piece, but then the tires are very slim 🙂
(Marshall had no objections with putting a download link on my page, and I’m a sucker for statistics 🙂 )
(The .ZIP file (use freeware like FilZip or 7zip to extract a >ZIP) contains a .PDF (which you can read with Acrobat or Foxit ))
The artist series is small, but with some great designers:
“Cenobox Pin Cushion” created by Jason Harlan
“Yebomaycu” created by Marko Zubak

nice template! The windshield etc can be called “Canopy”.
Even when you told me what I should call it in English I had to look that up in Wikipedia (Canopy)
The biggest problem was to figure out what you would call it in my own language. Because it’s a car I would never thought of Cockpit (airplane)….
