Papercrafting taken to the next level


Artist Taras Lesko has always had a passion for creating something with his hands, and that shows in these paper craft models. Usually he uses motives like action figures and robots from Play Station games or anime movies, but that hasn’t stopped him from making other things out of paper, like his own self portrait.

One paper model consists of about several hundreds of individual parts, a couple of hundred letter sized paper sheets, and is over 3 feet tall. The project of creating the robot Freedom Gundam from a popular Japanese anime took Lesko about two months.

A graphic designer from Japan has also used paper to sci-fi models, but the best part is that you can be a part of it by downloading the patterns in PDFs and built one yourself.

  1. This gundam serie is the best. I can’t overlook my initial time watching Gundam Wing then know about Japanese mobile suit gundam. Hope to have more fantastic gundam serie in the future

  2. love robots in common, esp japanese gundam. Gundam is actually a piece of arts, why do they appear so detail. Japanese are sure incredible.

  3. Great points…I’d word that as someone who actually doesn’t comment to blogs a lot (in fact, this can be my first submit), I don’t think the term “lurker” could be very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault in any respect, however perhaps the blogosphere might give you a greater, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy studying the posts.
