Papercraft Friday #100: Gatchaman God Phoenix

August 27, 2010

Woo Hoo!  We made it to Papercraft Friday #100!  And I mean “we” because as much as I love papercraft, I doubt I would have consistently blogged about it week after week if I hadn’t got such great interest and response from everyone.  So what did I choose for #100?  It had to be the God Phoenix from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.  Possibly more well known in the U.S. as just the Phoenix in the Americanized and heavily edited Battle of the Planets, which featured that added little robot that fans now love to hate.  So when Studio Time Ring posted it in Tamasoft’s Pepakura Gallery, I knew I had my #100.  Bird, Go!  Transmute!

I’m currently building this one and hoped to have it ready to go for today, but life got in the way and I still have a long way to go.  Papercraft Friday stops for no build though, so I’ll do a followup post of the build when it’s done.  Here’s a little preview:

In honor of Papercraft Friday #100, I figured I’d dig into the blog stats and see what the three most popular papercraft posts have been.  And they are…. *drumroll*

Papercraft Friday #34: VF-1S Valkyrie

March 27, 2009



This week’s model brings back fond memories of watching anime on Saturday mornings at Pantera’s Pizza in the mid-80’s.  It’s the VF-1S Valkyrie from Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (Japan) and Robotech (USA).  The model, from the SF Paper Craft Gallery, comes in two build modes: Fighter mode and Gerwalk mode.  3 model pages each, so not terribly complicated, but nicely detailed.  Good times.
