I also have an instructable coming out on how to make the paper butterfly knife (balisong)
new pics 101.jpgnew pics 103.jpg
can you make a tutorial on this paper butterfly knife? i real want t make 1
i'll take the parts to work tomorrow and get them on my computer so I can make a tutorial
sorry its taking so long on the tutorial for the knife, im missing one page of parts :/
I know this comment is a year old, but how long do you think it will take for you to be able to finish the balisong instructable, as I am very curious.
Nice ive made one too though I'm still getting the hang of making hard paper for stuff like this (hard paper is several layers of paper laminated together to form a fairly stiff paper board for those of you that don't know a reall good example is the functional paper fire arms from tacome1942 from youtube )

oops..I got to remember not to post a third pic..cause I can never see the whole comment..Anyway, here is the barrel
Since I'm making this gun shoot, I have to keep the barrel hollow so I didn't put the tube ends on and I cut holes where I needed to

That is amazing! Please make an instructable on it...please!
Holy cows!!!! this thing is awesome !!! if the rest of this AK is like this it would be the coolest cardboard gun ever !! 5/5 so awesome !
aj01-01 aj01-016 years ago

aj01-01 aj01-016 years ago
Oh and a few more...I made the grip too
like the stock..the inside of the grip is reinforced with cardboard...the cardboard sticking out of the grip is there to make a strong attachment to the receiver

aj01-01 aj01-016 years ago

the cardboard I use is not corrugated so its like ultra thick and hard to cut

So what is the cardboard that you buy called??
um..I think its called paperboard, but I don't buy it...Someone gave me tons of it
Kaiven (author)  aj01-016 years ago
Is that from the paper instructions?
aj01-01 Kaiven6 years ago

 O ja? what does it shoot. Thats the coolest thing evah!!

 That is quite win good luck man
thanks, I read you were gonna post some things, can't wait to see what you got
 I'm working on an Fn Minimi But it's taking FOREVER!!! Your AK looks Uber mega detailed.
sweet, that should be nice
yeah..I did make some modifications (making it shoot) but I can't take credit for the detail in the design, you can make it using the pics here. This is the first gun I have ever made without designing it myself.
 Thanks man. I'm working on a revolver and FN Minnimi for a movie.

Kaiven (author)  aj01-015 years ago
Is there a picture or something? Haha, how do I guess?
aj01-01 Kaiven5 years ago

Kaiven (author)  davison1126 years ago
 Just thicken it... if possible lol...

Kaiven (author)  davison1126 years ago
 Well... fix it :P Just go with the changes that attack you and defeat them haha...
Great! I forgot to post the pic on instructables and made like 5 other guns....

new pics 067.jpgnew pics 068.jpg
aj01-016 years ago

I gave the barrel a coat of grey primer first then put some metallic on it
the stock and the handguard have been painted flat black

here is one of the many papermodel kits I have, but haven't assembled yet
i'm thinking if I start this flak sometime this year...I could have done in like..2 years? ;)
na..not 2 years lol, but it its scale is 1:25 and is highly detailed, it would take me a while thats for sure

aj01-01 aj01-016 years ago
(these pictures are from the kit)
aj01-016 years ago
got some springs for the receiver today :D they should be able to shoot something pretty far, we will see
aj01-016 years ago
Ok, I have only made a few minor modifications to the model so far. I'm working on the stock now

here some pics of the stock so far...
The cardboard is for reinforcement purposes..I reinforce most big parts like this with cardboard..(it makes the parts as hard a rock)
If I made it like I was supposed to...there would be nothing in between the sides on the sotck and I wasn't going to have that lol
