Collaboration Number 5...

-update- 4.1.2014
well, first of all
happy new year everybody :w00t:
long time (again) not here :blushes:
but i'm not dead
as you saw, i uploaded a few new progress photos of the Avian Defender
*gosh* this project slowly becomes insane
and i am too :D
after quite three months now the lower torso is done
the first arm, the daggers (after a re-build), the shoulder armor and
i throwed a wing away
yes, you read correctly
if you don't follow me on my facebook page or profile
i build meanwhile one of the wings
but it was quite impossible to complete it, the wing was so instable that i also had to re-build the 3d mesh here
but this time it will work ;)
i'm really excited when this model is finished
i defenitly need a really simple model after that :D

since two years
i had a model on my computer what was waiting to build
more or less because of lazyness i didn't finished that
what you will see in the next weeks
but now it's time to release this beast

The Avian Defender from :iconhaikai13: haikai13

Avian Defender by haikai13
is the biggest and most complex model what i build so far
60cm tall, 96 pages minimum and over 670 pieces
and without any regrets it will be my personal masterpiece
allready at the 3d editing process, i put all my knowledge of papercrafting into it
quite every edge is recolored with markers in different colors and mixtures
what you allready saw is just the beginning of a huge project with a lot of specials
i'm so happy that i can finally build that model
even it's just for me (no worries, i will release the sheets, but i have my doubts that someone will build it too ^^; )

Good luck with the building, I am sure it will turn out very nice. What printer do you use? I have always problems with inkt going away when folding. I know a inkjet printer works the best.

i have a laser printer and i have the same problem
with sharp or scored edges, the color break and i have to recolor it
but it's not that bad :)

You do not see it indeed but it does take a lot of time, especially with small parts. Bigger models are finer to work with :P

that's true
but there is a limit
when i think about the huge pieces of the wings
too much ^^;

When you contacted me about making it into a papercraft piece I had my doubts, but then I saw the rest of your work and thought if anyone could make it work, it would be you!  I'm excited to hear that you're getting close to finishing it!

öhm.. close to finish is good ^^;
i think i just have 30% done :D
at the moment i build the shouler armor and i just started it
then both daggers, arms, wings, head and the rest is open
two months to go ;)
but seriously, the chance to build this awesome model makes me proud :meow:
after work i can't wait to get at the desk and continue
