Papercraft LEGO minifig test 4 by ninjatoespapercraft Papercraft LEGO minifig test 4 by ninjatoespapercraft
Although it may be difficult to see through all the mirrored and off-scale textures ;o) the parts are actually going together pretty well so far!

He lost his leg, he lost his hand, he lost his arm, he lost his pants and had to use his green ones and Duke Nukem used the shrinker on his face. Yet, he thinks the worst thing is that he lost his hat. XD

Great work. :thumbsup:

I'm just wondering, what kind of paper should i use? I know it must be medium-hard, but when i tried printing one out, the colour vanished where i folded, and the colour smudged a bit, even though i waited an hour before starting to fold it.

Most people use thicker paper (anything from 120-200 gsm, about 1.5-2.5x thicker as regular printer paper) so the paper model will be stronger.

I always use 200 gsm and never photopaper or glossy paper or any other paper with a special coating or anything, although other people say they do use that without any problems.

I always use a inkjet printer because that's the one I have, but some people also say that the laserjet toner particles can crack and chip when you fold the paper. But again, other people say they don't have that problem at all...

Do you have the same problem with your regular printer paper with the ink still smudging even after a long time? Maybe you can try to print a sheet of paper on a different printer at your friend's home or at school/work, to see if it's the paper of the printer?

I think it's best not to use paper that's supersmooth, or that has a special, smooth coating. Maybe you can explain your problems at the store where you bought your paper, and see if they can recommend other paper and maybe even let you try a few sheets to see if it works better?

I hope you can find some paper that will work better!

Thanks, with so many papercrafters nowadays, lots of people will have the same ideas of course, especially when it's something as popular as LEGO! ;o)

DrakerDG made a LEGO astronaut a little while ago ([link]) so I thought that it was time to pick my own papercraft minifig project up again too, and since he made an astronaut, I decided to make a different one first: captain Knoest! ;o)

It's not just you; the face really is much too small on this test build! ;o)

On the final release version, it will be this size: [link]
