OK so before we begin, I must warn you that this papercraft is HUGE
, and that's not metrying to be boastful or anything. It took a total of 233 pages to build her, and that's not even counting the personality cores (5 pages each, so 253 total). Be prepared to end up going through at least one color or black ink cartridge for this build. Also, my Papercraft building tip 101 here, I always use Elmer's Glue All
when putting together any paper model. I know some people use Pritt gluesticks or Resin but I always liked using Elmer's since it is just as strong and durable and it's drying speed is moderate enough so I can make any final adjustments if necessary.
(Don't have it? Then go download it here
. Like right now.)
- Elmer's Glue-All
(Or for that matter, your preferred Papercraft adhesive)
- Straight Edge/ Ruler
- At least 6 Glue Sticks
(I'm partial to UHU
and Permanent Glue Stic
- Comfortable Scissors
(the lighter the better, the sharper the safer- should be able to glide against the paper when cutting).
- At least 255 pages Recycled Card Stock
(I wanted GLaDOS not only to look great, but also be environmentally friendly).
- Color Ink Cartridge/ Black Ink Cartridge
- Hot Glue Gun
- Xacto Cutting Knife
- Black yarn
(For Final Step)
-Clear Packaging Tape
and finally, the original GLaDOS papercraft model + personality cores. I saved you the trouble of putting all of the pdf files compressed on a .rar, but the GLaDOS .pdo model was unfortunately too large and will still be needed to be downloaded through Billybob's deviantart
: No one will blame you for giving up. In fact, quitting at this point is a perfectly reasonable response.
