Dragonstalker Helmet

And here it is ^^ My very first papercraft model up for displays for others to see, download and make! The first model I decided to 'craft' for starters is the Dragonstalker Helmet from World of Warcraft. LIFESIZED! Oh how I love lifesized helmet and weapons, expect to see those more here ;)

(and yeah, the one wearing the helmet is me XD)

You can find the files here

The model itself is a pretty easy and straight forward build and you can easily see how it is done on the .pdo. Aside from that...there is another .pdo that has extra 'mohawk' parts. You can also print it all from the .pdf so that it has all the parts already in there.
Included in the file are also 3 texture models. So you can 'pimp' your helmet up if you want ;)

The right eye looks weird compaired to the left one, but somehow I couldn't change this the way I wanted to change it. There are also weird triangle shapes still left in the .pdo that used to be for the glow in the eyes. I know I could have removed these with some 3d program, but at the time I started building this...I had no clue XD (Only learned that just before actually posting this).

There are most likely a lot of stuff  I could have done differently, better or shouldn't have done at all. If you come across any of such things, be sure to let me know so I know how to change them for the next one!

Enjoy the build!

Starting it all up

So, to start it off...First post for me, yay XD

Welcome to Winged Crafts. I decided to make this blog to post the papercraft models I am gonna be making from now on. While I haven't finished one yet, I am in the progress of making one and I am testbuilding it now to check out if everything is posed just right. Good thing I did too, found out a few flaps were missing in the first few pages XD Yay for testbuilding!

I'm still new to the whole making my own models though and while I had help on understanding things from the awesome ninjatoes, I would love to get all the other help I can get as well as tips on how to improve the models I post. Don't be shy to point out the problems ;)

Also, if anyone wants some model made, shout it out and I might think about it ;)

While this may be the first post on this blog, I have my fair share of building other people's models and I will post the finished results of the ones I make from now on alongside the models I make of my own. Might make another blog or so for that though, not quite sure on it yet.

Keep your eyes op on this and we'll see when the first model will pop up ^^

It will most likely be another week and a half, maybe 2 before my first model will be viewed online. I made a mistake in the texture I put on it and now I have to restart the whole testbuilding which is a setback of a few days. Now that wouldn't be that bad, but I won't be around to test build it at all upcoming week --;
