PaperTV site is down again, been for a long few days now... Anybody got any news on this?

I am guessing that unless china has an internal EMP attack and all of the ccp showed off (I wish), the succeeded to take down the site again, because "foreigners" were on them, etc? Or did their slave hamsters running their servers die and they have to replace them? Did this happen to this site before?

>PaperTV site is down again
>Did this happen to this site before?

The answer is Yes, the site was down in... not sure, september/october last year, for 2~3 days not even a single warning nor anything, then sudden came back to normal

I'm not sure how long you've been checking this site, but if you know from last year you may remmember the site layout was mostly orange color, after site was down and back again, in the end of the year/beginning of this year the layout was mostly green, they sent notices about deleting all accounts with 0 points or not logged for much time, and deleting many accounts with same address.

I remember last weeks I've been logging daily to gather up some coins, few days ago I noticed the layout was now purple and there was a notice there talking something about they were sorry, but would need to being offline for uncertain time to fix stuff up, so probably have something to do with new layout and maintenance which may take a bit long, I think it will be back to normal, it's a matter of time
Ohhh, thanks for the answer. Maybe that's the case and they are fixing stuff up again. Hopefully with new stuff on it. The 2. layout they had now with the orange thing and the pictures at the bottom was really bumming me out. The categiroes were hard to find and the old layout was much more useful.Hopefully they come on out again with something better this time XD as much as a CCP can be "good"...

No problem. I'll check the site once a day, if any news I'll tell here, and then people can do requests if they want to

Just learned how to make a paper crane :)

Btw. yes, I did try searching online but in none of the links Bamm-Bamm came up. Only the 6 ones I got.

No idea why my last thread was deleted, but I was asking about these. Can anybody get these? I would pay of course.

These are exclusive Japanese Family Mart print-outs you can buy only there. Chances are slim, but maybe somebody knows somebody that could print them out and scan them for me?

The links and codes are here:


Anybody with any info or help would be greately apreciated. Thanks~~~~~

Hey /po/,

how do you like my papercraft woodpecker?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
You really cut out pieces, trace, and cut again? That sounds way to tedious for me. I can't find a printer in my daily life that can take the 300gsm paper I wish it could...but they all seem to take 176gsm just fine, and that's good enough for me.

I'm actually not really sure your exact issue. You would prefer the pieces already textured/colored?

Now you got me thinking about using a projector.
I really am only used to make the "normal" ones, with printed out colors and textures and all of that. I got a crappy printer, so I am pretty sure that everything with this colored extra thick paper that is more quality-like would trash my printer. I once tried to print on thick see-through foil and it was a nightmare XD

Just wanting somebody to explain how they do this, because normally when you print these out on colored paper they also leave the color in white? Some have a function that let's you just print out the wire, but not all of them? I am really not sure XD that's why I was asking how others do this, because these blank ones really seem popular and I just can't be friends with these kind of papercrafts :D

I also know about a cutter, but again, hard to come by in my country and I got no money anyway, so that's out of the question. And as far as I know they only work with really easy forms to pre-cut out like that and I saw some people working with them online, but it's a mystery to me if they actually work 100% or not :D
> explain how they do this
Print template on disposable paper, put it on quality paper, fix it, take a needle and make small holes in the edges. Then take bone folder (or empty ballpoint pen) and connect edges using template as a guide. This way you avoid double cutting ans also avoid lines on quality paper.
My printer (cheap old laser printer) has an extra input for thicker paper which I use for my 130gsm paper.
But for a model this size you can easily use normal 70-80gsm paper which you can also buy colored. In fact the white version on the left is made with normal printing paper (faster to fold for prototype).
Of course you could also tell pepakura to print the colors on the normal printing paper, but for this kind of model I think it would look pretty bad (and use ink I can save).
But as you say this is not your taste, just stick with your tast I guess :) I prefer the simplistic style of less detail in my papercraft.
For smaller parts you can also fix the disposable paper to the quality paper with magnets and cut both out at the same time. You have to guess the folds but it saves time.

Does anyone happen to have the files for the Life-Size Link? Can't find it on my hard drives and all links on the internet are dead
I remember this papercraft. I am not sure I have it, but I will look.

God bless you!
I ended up finding it on someone's youtube channel of all places. So I will post the link for anyone else who wants it.

I have the Miku, but I haven't been able to find Luka.
The URL in the file seems dead.
Luka was never shared. That aside, the one who made this is called "Pepasweet" and she's from Hong Kong. Really nice lady that also has a FB account and everything. If you need anything from her, just assemble a papercraft of Miku and ask if you could get the Luka one, and I am pretty sure that if you show that you have assembled her stuff, she will galdly help you. Just be nice. I got all of her stuff like that and she is super sweet. Just ask the designers people, it's not that hard.

I'm doing another model because fixing the hedgehog destroyed my will to live.

I have plans for diagramming, but not for a long way out.

Thank you very much, God bless you!

Anybody got it yet? (NINGGUANG from Danyuu)

I did see that S.V. actually posted that his and these models are being sold for cheap on a Chinese site. Anybody got the link? I didn't find anything while searching and the link was not shown, just the screenshots of the crafts on there.
If u could give me the model i can try
I got no idea what you mean by that Give you the MMD of this one so you can make a papercraft yourself like the one Danyuu made? I got none of the papercraft ones, that's why I am asking on here. There has got to be files online somewhere, I know the chinese always post things online, and I want to find those files dammit :/

Hi /po/! I've managed to find 3 out of the 5 Evangelion models created by Epson, but I am missing EVA-01 Berserk version and EVA-08. Does anyone have these by chance?
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I believe scenes from the newer movies.
The 01 and 02 papercrafts of this simple version are at least +8 years old. There is no way they are references to the new movie that came out this year in Japan. Unless I am missing something...
No not the movie that came out this year, but from the newer "Rebuild of Evangelion" movie series. I think 01 is based on the first movie, 02 on the second and 06 is from the third
ohhh XD that makes more sense. my bad
They look like plastic models
