Picture of Paper Pub #4: Install Surveillance Cat
Wahn Wahn Mon, Instructabrarians!

I've been around on the Blagosphere for a while now and I've come to realize that there are three things the internet will never get over: 1) Web Videos, 2) Cats and 3) Cute Japanese Animated Girls That Turn Into Machines.  While Amanda already did an 'ible on viral vids, and Fanimecon 2012 isn't until another 2 weeks, I figured Cats would be a perfect niche to fill.  So for my second Paper Publication, I would like to introduce you to our HQ's Newest Security System: Surveillance Cat!

Step 1: Paper Profile

For those of you who just joined the internets or have been actively avoiding Google Images, Surveillance Cat or "Ceiling Cat" is a very popular internet Lolcat.  From
Ceiling Cat was one of the first and now, most well-known, internet cats. He has spawned several submemes, including his nemesis Basement Cat and Basement HorseWho.
This papercraft version of the adorable cat comes from Deviantart's The-Bongmaster. He is an amazing graphical artist and 3D designer, but there are some things on his site I wouldn't suggest really young children to be visiting it.  Some of his stuff is a bit....nsfw (Not Specifically Feline Work).

Step 2: Build the Base

Shameless Plug: Before we begin, I would like to say that the best way to build papercrafts is through a program called Pepakura. It is an an AWESOME program, allows you to import .pdo files and .obj files and make papercraft models from them.  It's also incredibly easy to refer back to the plans whenever you are stuck building.

After grabbing the pepakura file from The-Bongmaster's page and printing out the individual pages, we can begin!

The base is pretty straight forward, it's pretty much four cardboard ramps attached to an inclined flat black print out.  Now, The-Bongmaster warns against printing out the black page because it takes up a lot of printing ink.  Thankfully, I have access to my company's Laser Jet HP CP1250 and basically have unlimited supply!

Really good for pegging people

Is there any "Cute Japanese Animated Girls That Turn Into Machines" papercraft that you can do? That would be good. I think we would all appreciate that.
