Introduction: Paper Models

Here are a few models I have designed and built. The guns do just about everything but shoot and they a built super strong. (all except the machine gun...its nowhere near finished yet)
The revolver is almost done..I haven't put the trigger on yet.
The guitar is also almost done nd the strings on it are real, I have actually had them on or a while and the guitar sounded pretty good (for paper). In the pictures the bridge is broken off, i'm rebuilding it. The knives work just like the real ones. All the paper guns were designed using diagrams of the real ones. (btw, the tuners on the guitar are not paper)

I will provide parts for the next model I make
Anyone have any ideas on the next gun I should make?

ok everyone I made a slideshow

The pictures are all well and good, but I thought this was supposed to be about instructions on making things. I would love to know your process on making these items.

They look great.

Thanks,

Here's a site where someone built fully functional paper firearms (they even shoot like the real thing) look up "tacome1942" on YouTube. He's right now working on an AK 74 assault rifle

You probably get this a lot but please could you do an instructable on the balisong as all other instructables failed and my homemade one doesnt have very good proportions and i didnt know what to do for hinges so i used toothpicks. Lets just say it wasnt the best paper balisong ever and was no where near as good as yours. I included a pic of the failed one for no apparent reason.

author
pivotgodxd (author)pivotgodxd2010-03-12

I dont think the pics were attached. :P

aj01-01 (author)pivotgodxd2010-03-13

Thats cool, I will have the instructable on the balisong up soon, I just have to scan the parts
(btw, I used toothpicks ;) )

author
Braeburn (author)aj01-012010-04-29

 Toothpicks in paper models, and that knife are WIN :D
It makes me want to be a spy. GENTLEMENTLEMEN.

pivotgodxd (author)aj01-012010-03-14

Ha, thats good, its good to know i'm not the only person that uses toothpicks in my papercrafts :D

I love your butterfly knife ! is it hard to do ? I want to give it a try

author
aj01-01 (author)Patented2010-02-19

Thanks, it wasn't hard, when I get a chance i'll post an instructable on that for you :)

author
Patented (author)aj01-012010-02-19

Yay! would be awesome

author
afleticwork (author)2009-12-10

ok please make a instructable on how to make the revolver

author
ElusiveGreen (author)2009-11-26

Wow. I've seen a lot of models done out of card or paper but these are something else entrely. I'm trying to figure out how you did the mechanics like the trigger.

author
aj01-01 (author)ElusiveGreen2009-12-01

ya, its kinda complicated, but basically I design all the parts to be exactly like the real ones. (it turns out more realistic that way)
actualy the only gun in these pics with a trigger is the derringer..but I just installed the trigger on the revolver, here is a video of it (it hasnt been painted yet)

ElusiveGreen (author)aj01-012009-12-06

I guess thats the straight forward way of doing it. If you want to make it like a real gun you make it like a real gun. I suppose I was just wondeirng if you had a different way to simplify the triggers. I've been tryign to find one when I work with wood but I haven't come across a good one yet.

Ever consider making a stiletto style knife? Push button automatic kind compared to the balisong?

author
aj01-01 (author)ElusiveGreen2009-12-07

simplify the trigger? im not sure what you mean :/ , but yeah I have thought about making a switchblade stiletto..I have one, I just wonder If I could make it work

author
Kaiven (author)2009-11-08

Your revolver is much better than mine :P
When using a 2D picture, models are very hard to make the right widths...
I need a suggestion for my next gun. Still browsing the internet.

author
junkfactory886 (author)Kaiven2009-11-11

Hows about a Mossberg 590? It's a pretty simple design, and i am currently in the planning stage of one.

author
Kaiven (author)junkfactory8862009-11-11

Just what I need! A pump shotgun would be an awesome addition to my Wall of Guns :D And better yet... it's on my favorite gun website! www.world.guns.ru
Here is the link to the Mossberg 590 http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/sh04-e.htm
You sir, definitely gave me the best suggestion of all time. I will engrave your name into my shotgun.

author
aj01-01 (author)Kaiven2009-11-12

That is a very nice shotgun, good luck building it. (cowscankill and junkfactory886...we should collaborate sometime)

Kaiven (author)aj01-012009-11-12

How would we collaborate?

author
aj01-01 (author)Kaiven2009-11-12

um..hmm..I actually have no idea..I have seen a few on instructables, don't know how to though

author
Kaiven (author)aj01-012009-11-12

Well, I mean like... how would we build the same gun? Haha, it would be easier if we could visit each other for that kind of project...

author
aj01-01 (author)Kaiven2009-11-13

yeah, idk...good point lol..

author
Kaiven (author)aj01-012009-11-13

Suggestion! How about we form a group instead of just having a forum? The forum can be added to the group, as well as GOOD paper instructables/videos/slideshows. No stupid paper gun stuff... I hate that no one puts effort in making a quality model.

author
aj01-01 (author)Kaiven2009-11-14

thats a good idea, how do u make a group? (I know right, you took the words right out of my mouth lol)

author
Kaiven (author)aj01-012009-11-15

I'll make a group and get back to you on that... I forgot exactly how.

author
aj01-01 (author)aj01-012009-11-12

oh yeah, if either of you build it, you should post pics as you go on this forum.

author
junkfactory886 (author)aj01-012009-11-13

I plan on it. Say, why don't we each build it,and see who did the best job?

author
Kaiven (author)junkfactory8862009-11-13

Good suggestion! I will when I finish this P90 heheh...

author
aj01-01 (author)junkfactory8862009-11-13

That sounds like fun, but I'm already working on something...
that is an awesome gun though..I might make it after the ak47

author
aj01-01 (author)2009-11-06

Yeah I know, it wasn't working for me though

author
mrdepo96 (author)2009-11-05

 wow! don't take them into a bank anytime soon...

author
aj01-01 (author)mrdepo962009-11-06

ha ya..they don't go anywhere..

author
Chromatica (author)2009-11-05

Nice
The last one especially

author
aj01-01 (author)Chromatica2009-11-05

Thanks, Im going to finish that one soon
