Welcome to this Ironman paper model tutroial...

As you may have already know, most people on the internet build awesome Ironman models using pep files (pre-made 2d pattern that assemble 3d forms). But the process usually includes back and forth in softwares, missing pieces and digital format or printing issues... pre-made pep files is cool, but took away the best part of paper craft... creativity and experimentation...

Dont be a slave of the pep file, we are artist not cutting and sticking machines!!

This tutorial features:

  • no pep files,
  • no need to be a computer wizard
  • fully recycled materials...
  • three short youtube videos tutorial
  • and once you master the technique you can build whatever you like!!
  • old-fashion and raw true paper craft experience..
  • can be carry out in any size and level of detail you wish, in my case its about a foot tall...

Letz start this wonderful journey...

Step 1: Step 1: Material and Tools

Picture of Step 1: Material and Tools

the project is a low budget one hang tight...


  • plenty of recycled paper boxes (tissue or cereal box)
  • some draft paper for drafting and sketching
  • pens, pencils, and markers
  • adhesive tape


  • scissors (normal scissors will do)
  • cutters (optional)
  • hot glue gun (you can any glue you like i like hot glue gun cus its fast and firm)

This is it for material and tools, scissors, cutter and hot glue gun could potentially be dangerous use with care.

I really love both models mchau2. They really look badass though I don't really like the IRON MAN helmet. Good job mchau2! I voted for you in all categories.
