Three papercraft Batmen?? by ninjatoespapercraft Three papercraft Batmen?? by ninjatoespapercraft
After two test builds and one final build (the middle one obviously, I hope... ;o) papercraft TAS Batman is almost ready!

Once the instructions are finished, I'll upload it on my papercraft webpage again as usual for people to download and build themselves, and because the TNBA version is pretty much the same except for the black accents (instead of blue) and a different Batlogo on its chest, I should be able to release that one soon after.

Stay tuned!

Seriously now, great job on Batman, love TAS and love this work of yours as well :) faving the sh*t out of it :)

Haha I'm so sorry, I guess Batman is just so stealthy sometimes, he must have slipped under your radar when I posted him here... :o(

But I'm glad you found him anyway! I made two versions of him (this The Animated Series version and a The New Batman Adventures version) the parts and instructions for both of which are in the Batman section on my papercraft webpage: [link]

I hope this makes up a bit for being in the dark about this so long! ;o)

thanks for link! great models, Bats from New TAS looks especially good, probably because his colours are more toned down, wow Batmobile? outstanding :)

What did you do differently in the middle model to stop it from suffering from white line syndrome?

For that, I used a technique called "edge colouring": after cutting out the parts, you can use a marker (best for darker colours) or a pencil (best for lighter colours) to colour the edges of the paper in the appropriate colour of the rest of the part: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhBuuEVSUcw

Ah okay, I thought it was just that but it looks much better than the few times I've tried it. Having a pen with the matching colour helps lol.

Haha yes, you do need a good colour of course. ;o)

Luckily, for Batman I only needed blue, grey and yellow and the colours are quite dark so it's less apparant that the edges are touched up.

Try on a scratch piece of paper first to see if you found a good colour, because especially with pens/markers, if the ink gets "sucked" into the paper a bit, it turns a little bit darker than expected!

Haha yes, wearing a mask has its advantages of course, not only can you hide your true identity, but you and your friends can also confuse the heck out of your enemies if you want to! ;o)

HOLY SHIT
I really really really really look forward to making my own
I didn't even see any of the folds in the rpeview image, it just looked like my Batman TAS figure that is next to my laptop.
It's all incredibly skilled but the hands baffle me, how on EARTH did you figure that out?

I'm glad you like it so much!

Most parts aren't really folded, but rather curved, which gives it a nice, smooth look. On some models I really like the "folded look" but I felt Batman would look better with a smoother look like this. ;o)

The fingers are bacically made from combined small cylinders, I used the same technique on several of my other models; if you use a toothpick to pre-shape them, it's not that difficult actually: [link]

I've just spent the last half hour looking through all the templates and instructions of my favorite characters.
though you know I'll be hooked to your stuff, and now I'll be waiting for more DC and Marvel characters day and night.
and not to mention
a certain damned red caped monster mash

I'd love to make more (super) heroes in the future, but with all the other ideas I have as well I can't promise when exactly I'm afraid. But of course there are lots of other people making paper models nowadays as well, and many of them like superheroes too...! ;o)

yes but not everyone who does posts them for free with instructions that actually make sense for the thick headed audience

Haha well, it's a lot of work to make step-by-step instructions of course, and I think people can figure out how to assemble the parts themselves most of the time without needing instructions anyway. But I make them because it's strangely relaxing. ;o)

If you are having trouble with a paper model that doesn't have instructions, have a look at the Pepakura PDO file if it has one with Pepakura Viewer [link] it can show you where the parts needs to go on the 3D model by clicking it.

Study the finished pictures if there are any to see where the trouble parts and how you should fold it, and take a good look at any fold lines, whether your should fold them up or down (valley or mountain fold).

Then, first try to fit on the part without glue first, to see if you got it right. That way you can always try folding it a different way to see if it fits then.

Some paper models can be really difficult, but the more you build them, the easier it gets to figure out how you should glue together certain parts of course, and often you get it right after a few tries. ;o)

I'm glad you like it! I hope to have the instructions done soon, so then I can upload it to my papercraft webpage and you can download and build it if you want to. ;o)

I'm afraid I don't have any DA points, but I hope you can still surprise your sister on Valentine's Day!
