Introduction: 7FT Gundam - Ultimate Papercraft

After burning my 4FT Freedom Gundam papercraft in 2010 I was determined to create a bigger and better replacement. This 7FT Gundam Mk-2 papercraft became the result of my goal, made up of 1250 parts on 720 pages, for a total paper weight of 10lb (4.5kg).

Using time-lapse photography, video editing and motion graphics, I created this video which shows the entire construction process as it happened over a course of three to four months.

My brother Ivan Lesko and I collaborated on creating a set of fantasy photographs for this project. Read Ivan's thoughts about the photography on his blog and follow him on Twitter.

Here's another time-lapse video which shows our photoshoot.

In this behind the scenes video I talk about my original idea, design process and equipment used for this project.

I launched this teaser video one month prior to revealing this project to the world.
