A winged horse that was said to be the son of Poseidon and Medusa and an aid to the gods. Pegasus has been used prominently in both movies (Jason and The Argonauts, Hercules, etc.) and video games (God of War II). Canon Creative Park just released this Pegasus papercaft under the Lucky Items section of their site - I guess to coincide with the coming new year celebration. You can also check out an adorable giant panda papercraft on the animals section and a papercraft ship - the Sagres II, a Portuguese Navy training vessel.

The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show was an alternative name for two separate American cartoon shows: Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show. The lead characters for this 1960's cartoon classic is comprised of Rocket "Rocky" J. Squirrel and his best bud Bullwinkle J. Moose. The setting of the show is on a fictional town called Frostbite Falls, Minnesota. The villains of the show included Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale hailing from the fictional country of Pottsylvania, under the command of the Fearless leader and Mr. Big.

Here's a little something to do during your Christmas/winter holiday break, I'm giving away an original Chokipeta papercraft kit, it's from an old Playstation 2 tank simulation strategy game from Sega/Sammy Entertainment called Standard Daisenryaku: Dengekisen released in Japan 2004.
It goes with the series of free Chokipeta-designed papercrafts from this site. The kit is unopened so I don't know how many pages are in it, I'm also not a tank expert so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong with my guess - that this is a Tiger 1 (Panzerkampfawagen VI Ausf. E) tank. The rules are pretty simple, just take a picture of you with your favorite papercraft/s - the theme is "Happy Holidays". Feel free to use any of your relatives or pets as props. You have to include a sign that says Paperkraft.net in the photo for authentication purposes. Send your entries to paperkraftsATgmailDOTcom with the title "Chokipeta Tank". One entry per email, entries close on December 31. Merry Christmas!

We've posted a Halo papercraft before featuring Master Chief, today we're adding a new one featuring Halo's D-77 Pelican Dropship Troop Carrier - it's a versatile craft used by the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) mainly for extraction and transportation of personnel and equipment but can also serve as a gunship. It has a large overhang on its rear that serves as an attachment point for large cargo and ordnance which range from Warthogs, to Scorpion Tanks, or troop-bay extensions. Here's a great free papercraft model from Planet Starfreak (Home of the legendary Grunkohl-Mod), you can also check their other papercrafts such as the Shadowcat V2 from MechWarrior and the Serenity (Firefly vessel). - thanks to Alain for the link.

During my lunch break I was trying to catch up with my daily gaming news when I noticed this blog post. It's a Christmas card from video game developer/publisher Atlus U.S.A (株式会社アトラス) sent to Kotaku editor Mike Fahey, it shows Jack Frost right smack in the middle surrounded by Atlus employees sporting Jack's familiar blue headgear/joker hat. This reminded me that there's a Jack Frost papercraft model from way back (5 yrs ago) that's still available for free download at the Atlus Japan web site. Some facts about Jack - he's considered a snowman, so for those of you that have been requesting for a snowman papercraft, this is probably the closest I could find for this year. Jack's favorite catchphrase is "Hee-Ho", he became quite popular when he appeared on the RPG video game series Shin Megami Tensei (真・女神転生|). Happy "Hee-Ho" Holidays indeed.

We'll start with Canon 3D's Creative Park, they've got a whole bunch of Christmas crafts that include dioramas, pop-up cards, banners, mask, and paper ornaments.

The Silent Hill video game series is one of Konami's great hits to date, stretching back all the way to 1999 when the first one came out and another sequel on the way next year. One of the most notable part of the game is the fog-shrouded environments, you know what I'm talking about, the claustrophobic interiors in pitch black setting that limits your visibility to about an 8 foot radius around the character. So here's a new tribute from tubbypaws (remember her?), a Silent Hill papercraft that depicts the foggy layer scene. Don't forget the other famous Silent Hill paper model that we've posted in the past, Chamoo's Pyramid Head papercraft.

It's Thanksgiving Day/Turkey Day here in the US, I couldn't find any good papercraft models for it so we'll just have to settle for this Princess Mononoke papercraft. It's not the actual princess (San) but of the Kodama - they're the spirits living in the forest. This cute Kodama is from a modified version of the nifty rabbit papercraft and edited by kewl british artist *kickass-peanut (Hannah?). Check out her deviantART page for more details.

Today's update on the Evangelion Angels papercraft models features Sahaquiel (the 10th Angel)and Ireul (the 11th Angel). Ireul aka. Angel of Terror - is notably the smallest of the Angels, represented as a cone shaped dot, this will probably be the easiest to assemble on this series.
"Ireul is a nano-scale entity, similar to a virus. In addition to its AT field, it demonstrates an ability to adapt to almost anything. Rather than moving in the conventional sense, the Angel seems to simply spread by rapidly reproducing at the cellular level." - wikipedia
Then, we've got Sahaquiel aka. Angel of Sky, the largest of the Angels. At first glance he looks like something that you see out of a petri dish or probably one of those glow-in-the-dark deep sea creatures, but those, it is not.
"Sahaquiel is a massive and bizarrely-shaped creature. It has an elongated body, with three eye-like markings (one in the center and one on either end of the body), and three stem-like growths projecting radially at both ends. Sahaquiel's AT field is comparatively powerful, able to shield the Angel from several dozen N² bombs. It also seems to have an ability to jam satellite communications. The Angel's most devastating weapon is itself: utilizing both kinetic energy and its AT field, it drops pieces of itself onto Earth as bombs. Its core appears as the pupil of the central eye." - wikipedia

Haven't even absored Sandalphon yet, here comes Matariel (the 9th Angel).
Matariel, has the appearance of a massive opilionid-like (think of daddy longlegs) creature with numerous eyes. The central eye on the underbelly secretes a strong solvent which can easily melt through both concrete and steel. The Angel attempts to burn a tunnel directly into the Geofront using the solvent. The Angel appears to possess no armament beyond this solvent, and its AT-Field never physically manifests, though the battle plan against it made mention of using Unit 02 to nullify its AT field before it would be fired upon. Matariel's core is not revealed. Matariel is named for the Angel of Rain. -wikipedia

Sandalphon, the 8th Angel on the Webdude's Evangelion papercraft has been released. Free download is available at the link below. I've included a video above showing what exactly this weird Angel is all about.
It appears to have no abilities beyond its extraordinary resistance to heat and pressure, up to the point of being able to open its mouth in magma. Its own AT field was never strong enough to physically manifest. Its core was never depicted. Sandalphon was discovered in an embryonic state deep inside the Mount Asama volcano. NERV was determined to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to strike first against an Angel. Asuka, in Unit 02, was sent to capture the Angel using a special electromagnetic cage. The Eva’s normal B-type equipment was not designed for extreme environments, so Unit 02 was equipped with the D-type Equipment, specifically designed for extreme conditions like magma. During the operation the Angel awoke, rapidly developed into its adult form, and attacked Unit 02, damaging it and causing it to lose its progressive knife. Sandalphon was defeated by Asuka using the D-type equipment's coolant (inspired by an earlier conversation with Shinji regarding thermal expansion) and Unit 01's progressive knife. - wikipedia

It looks like we don't have to go all the way through 12-31 to get a hold of all the Webdude's Angels, with the rate were going, we'll surely finish way ahead of schedule. Today we've got two new models released, first is Gaghiel (the 6th Angel) and then we have Israfel (the 7th Angel).
Gaghiel, is an aquatic being with a massive body and long jaws filled with sharp teeth. It also has a small "face" similar to Sachiel's on its forehead, and its core is located in its mouth. It is extremely strong, and can use parts of its body to easily slice up combat warships. - Wikipedia
Israfel, has the appearance of a massive, vaguely humanoid creature, similar to Sachiel. Israfel has a face/mask, reminiscent of Sachiel’s, which resembles a yin-yang symbol. Israfel has a pair of razor sharp claws and a weak energy beam. It's AT field appears to be relatively weak. It has two cores located in its chest. - Wikipedia

Adam, the First Angel is now available for free download at the Webdude's site. All of the other Angels descended from Adam, they possess the "Fruit of Life," the source of the Angels' power and immortality (also known as the S² Engine). As you can clearly see, Adam's body was used as the basis for the Evangelions. Also, Adam is named after the first human created by God in the Book of Genesis.

The Webdude has now made Ramiel a.k.a the 5th Angel / the Angel of Thunder available on his site. If you haven't been keeping up lately or are new to the site, it's from the Angels of Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series. Ramiel, is a weird translucent Angel, holding the shape of an octahedron (polyhedron with 8 faces). I mentioned weird because it doesn't look like your typical mecha or robot with the flashy armor and weapons. It's just a plain jane octahedron with a drill bit coming out of its apex and particle beams for it's defense and offense. Download it free at the link below.
