Advance Wars paper Fighters by ninjatoespapercraft Advance Wars paper Fighters by ninjatoespapercraft
Most (if not all) of the units from the original Advance Wars game are basically chibi / super deformed of real life counterparts, and for most of the planes it's not difficult to see which ones:

- the Yellow Comet Fighter is obviously based on the legendary World War II Japanese fighter plane, the A6M "Zero"...

- the Green Earth Fighter is easily identified as an A-10 "Warthog"...

- and the Orange Star Fighter is based on an F-15 Eagle.

There are some differences of course, but looking up the real life counterparts provides lots of inspiration to make my hand-drawn papercraft Advance Wars series: [link]

Have fun building!

I am wondering if you can make one of my Me 262 sprite, which in my headcanon is the Green Earth Military's intended successor design for the fighter role akatsukirocket854.deviantart.c…

I saw it, Eagle would be proud to have it! ;o)

But I'm afraid I really can't promise which paper models I'll make in the future, though; papercraft is only a hobby of mine, and I already have so many ideas that I probably already will never have the time to make all the paper models I want...! ;o)

I know that some other people already made a papercraft Me-262, like www.geocities.jp/pinaconn/inde… and maquettes.hautetfort.com/archi…

Those are "real "versions, and they look really neat I think, but probably one that fits the Advance Wars "chibi" look better can be found on this website though: www.wa.commufa.jp/~ton/pcc/ind…

I'm sorry I can't promise you to make your own Advance Wars Me-262, but I don't want to make promises I can't keep of course, sorry... :o(

When your job is to kill tanks, I guess it's okay to go as slow as one. ;o)

I think the money goes towards extra armor and extra powerful explosives for the shells. The better tank isn't the prettier one, of course, as the Yellow Comet MD "Basically-a-Big-Box-on-Treads"-Tank shows... ;o)

I'd also love a new, "classic" Advance Wars game! I think I would prefer keeping the turn based mechanics, though but hey, I also preferred the old graphics better and look what happened... ;o)
