Gun side ft by ARMORMAN Gun side ft by ARMORMAN
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.

Be sure to check out the Reaver Finished pics folder for more shots:

Fantastic, i love big papercraft works. I dont think there is anything you cant build in paper. The detail is incredible.
How many pieces of paper did it take and is it all painted or printed on printer as well?

It is all cut paper, there is no printed pieces. The last 4 days were punching out and gluing down rivets. I have no idea how many individual paper pieces there are.

Quite impressive, very well done.
The paint job is excellent as well as all the added details and textures (full of them even in places hard to spot, I love that level of detail).

Great work...

wow, this is fantastic looking. Did you paint it after assembly? I really love the raised texture portions

Yes, I spent some time painting it after assembly. Everything is paper. If you haven't checked it out, check out the finished pics folder and the WIP folder.
