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.

    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.

    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)

    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?
