papercraft Star Trek TNG Enterprise-D by ninjatoespapercraft papercraft Star Trek TNG Enterprise-D by ninjatoespapercraft
Space.
The final frontier.

These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.

It's continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds;
To seek out new life and new civilizations.

To boldly go where no one has gone before!


It's the starship from captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation! ;o)

I made it a few years back already, parts and instructions to build it yourself are available from my papercraft webpage: [link]

Have fun building!

Hi there, are you the same person that left me a message on my papercraft webpage: ninjatoes.wordpress.com/about-... ? ;o)

Like I explained there, I'm afraid I can't promise which paper models I will make in the future, but I remembered two papercraft Sovereign-class starships that you might like, and if you look around, you might find some others too, because there are a lot of Star Trek fans that also like papercraft! ;o)

I'm a big Star Trek fan, and I'd love to make some more papercraft Star Trek models, but I really can't promise you which ones or what kind of models I'll do in the future (I simply don't know yet myself... ;o)

There are a lot more papercrafters that like sci-fi and Star Trek too though, and they also made all kinds of Enterprise versions too, including the TOS version! ;o)

I remember these two: [link] and [link]

Some years back there was a website called "The Sev Wide Web" that made a parody on lots of sci-fi series and films, including Star Trek (called "Sev Trek" there ;o) and they even had a paper model of the flagship, the "Enterforaprize", made from a pizza, cigarettes and a beer can: [link] ;o)

But like I said, there are a lot more websites with papercraft Star Trek starships. This website has a lot of links: [link]

But even that list is far from complete! If you look around online a bit, you can find lots more, so I'm sure you can find a nice one that you'll like! ;o)

Have fun!

Haha no problem! ;o) Like I said, I'm a big Star trek fan myself, so I remembered a lot of links that might help you find what you're looking for I hope. Have fun!

I always wondered how you made your templates in the days before pepakaru.

Haha well, the Enterprise-D is actually the one Star Trek ship that I did make using Pepakura Designer! ;o)

My other papercraft Star Trek ships and many of my other models as well were made by hand, though. Basically, you start with the blueprints/examples of whatever it is you want to paperfy, and then break it down into separate 3D shapes in your head.

Then you imagine how those 3D shapes will unfold into 2D templates, and then you simply draw them using a ruler and a pencil.

To be sure that you got it right, you test build them; I usually simply use tape for that ([link] [link] [link]) rather than glueing tabs, because it's faster and easier to make changes.

Once you've made the changes and you're happy with it, you can colour your pencil drawings with markers, aquarel, crayons or whatever you want, scan them (or colour them using the computer after scanning) and print and build them! ;o)

My Advance Wars units are also done by hand, on my works in progress block you can often see the hand drawn steps and test builds: [link]

It sounds a bit difficult and time consuming maybe, but I often find it a lot more fun to do a paper model by hand.

After all, the fun about papercraft is that you're building stuff with paper, not that you get to stare at a computer screen all the time when using Pepakura Designer! ;o)

My Enterprise-D has some very small/thin parts, the trick to build them is to score and fold and pre-shape all the parts the best you can before trying to glue them together.

Yamaha has a very good, basic papercraft technique tutorial: [link]

And of course, be patient and have fun building! ;o)
