PELIPPER


279 / PELIPPER - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Pelipper
Type: Water/Flying
Species: Water Bird Pokémon
Height: 1.2 m (3'11")
Weight: 28.0 kg (61.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Pelipper is a pelican-like Pokémon with no discernible neck. Its head and bill make up the majority of its body. It has white feathers, a yellow underbelly, and a blue head crest. Its large wings have three digits and blue wing tips. It has small, blue webbed feet, a short tail, and eyes that are made of two black semi-circles. It has a large bill and a throat pouch that it uses to carry small Pokémon and eggs and scoop food from the sea. It searches for food by skimming across the wave tops. After scooping the food, Pelipper swallows it in one big gulp. It builds its nest on steep cliffs facing the sea.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 14.2 cm/5.6 in
Width: 19.6 cm/ 7.7 in
Depth: 22.9 cm/9.0 in
No. of Pages: 7
No. of Pieces: 34
Level: Easy/Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS
NOTES: Start at the top of the head and close at the tip of the tail. Be sure to build the entire mouth before gluing it to the face. The wings are the only hard part, but as long as you fold the lines indicated in red it will build fairly simply. When gluing the feet, place the left wing on a flat surface and glue the feet on the same level so it stands better. You can use magnets to hold the bill instead of gluing it (to make it into a storage container of sorts), just place one inside the bill before closing and glue one to the place where it connects to the body.

TOGEKISS (Happy Easter!)


468 / TOGEKISS - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Togekiss
Type: Fairy/Flying
Species: Jubilee Pokémon
Height: 1.5 m (4'11")
Weight: 38.0 kg (83.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Togekiss is a white, avian Pokémon with an ovoid body. While its feet are small and situated closely together, its wings are broad and triangular. Red and blue triangular markings over its underside, and it has a short tail consisting of three feathers. On the back of its head are three spikes: a red tipped on the right, a blue tipped one on the left, and a pure white one in the middle. Togekiss has a relatively flat face and small, black eyes. This Pokémon is rarely seen, only appearing in peaceful areas. When it is seen or visits respectful people, it showers gifts of blessings and kindness.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 16.5 cm/6.5 in
Width: 29.9 cm/11.8 in
Depth: 19.7 cm/7.8 in
No. of Pages: 7
No. of Pieces: 75
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS
NOTES: Start the model at the top of the head, follow the numbers and the istructions and close at the tail. The only part that can offer some trouble on this one is joining the wings with the body, since they are quite big. If you glue the two first chest pieces to it, will make it easier. It stands on it's own, just be careful while placing the feet so they match the pdo and the picture. If it won't stand, add some weight, there should be an opening, since the tail should be only glued after it's standing. To finish it, glue the feathers.

About the wings, up until a point (12), the build with both the wings is the same, after that, if you want the wings as shown on the picture, follow the red numbers, if you want the ones as shown on the pdo, use the black numbers.

The wings are built in segments, the instructions on the templates explain how they are supposed to be built. The model might need some weight to stand.

April Fool's Chinpokomon Papercrafts




April Fool's Chinpokomon Papercraft
Sorry, this year there was no models for April Fool's Day. For those who don't know Chinpokomon, they are from an episode of South Park (S3E11) which was a parody of the Pokémon. And well, you can't really make a model if you don't really know what they look like... I mean, look at the pic with the kids up there, you can't really make a model out of that.  :/

So there you go, sorry to those who don't really know what April Fool's all about, or just got caught thinking we were hacked or changed name. :) Always funny to read your comments tho. hahaha

The download links were the Chinpokomon ad from the episode and the Google Maps Pokémon challenge trailer, which was pretty great! : A4 / Letter
We'll be back to our regularly scheduled models by Friday.

DODRIO


085 / DODRIO - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Dodrio
Type: Normal/Flying
Species: Triple Bird Pokémon
Height: 1.8 m (5'11")
Weight: 85.2 kg (187.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Along with its three heads, Dodrio has three sets of hearts and lungs as well. This allows it to efficiently oxygenate and pump blood throughout its body, thus giving it increased endurance to run vast distances without rest. It is especially prone to race vigorously across grassy plains, even in arid seasons with little rainfall.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 22.0 cm/8.7 in
Width: 15.1 cm/ 5.9 in
Depth: 14.1 cm/5.6 in
No. of Pages: 3
No. of Pieces: 76
Level: Medium-Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS
NOTES: There are two start points: the heads and the legs. After both segments are done, join them with the indicated piece. The beaks can offer some trouble, take your time there. For a smoother build it's suggested to fold the indicated lines. After the model is closed, glue the tail. The head details can be glued after the heads are connected to the torso. The necks and the legs might break with time, some reinforcement is suggested, such as a thin wire on the necks and a thicker one for the legs or some stripes of paper inserted in them. The model won't stand on it's own, in order to do that you can use a base.

There are also textures included for both the apricot colored neck (female) and darker neck (male). The default is female, Pepakura Viewer is needed to use the male textures.
