UT Trophies Papercraft

I'm back with some more papercraft creations for you guys! :)
Display your Unreal Tournament trophies you earned to your friends! Just print, cut and glue them together. Some need a support frame. You can scale them to your liking using Pepakura Designer (you see the dimensions in there). They are currently scaled towards the other papercrafts, so you probably want to scale it up for a proper size and of course easier gluing. The trophy on the photo is scaled by 4. There are also 2 EASY versions (Champion & Assault Trophy) included if the character is too hard to make! Just replace the texture with the easy version where the character is printed onto the texture!

You will need Pepakura software in order to open the .pdo files.
You can get Pepakura Designer for free here: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/

Well then. As soon as I can move my hands normally again I'll have something to do.

As soon as I have enough time, I'm making them. This is glorious.

My son saw these and he's very interested. Is there a primer online for tips and tricks for someone just starting? He's a REALLY big dude who has hams for hands so I'm concerned this may be overly-dextrous for him but he wants to try anyway.

There are a whole bunch of tutorials for papercraft, here are some good ones:
http://www.papercraftmuseum.com/beginner-tutorial/

The most important thing about papercraft is having good glue. I strongly suggest using Aleene's Tacky Glue, it's the best glue I tested so far! It dries quickly, holds strong, doesn't make the paper wet and doesn't make annoying threads (less messy overall). Strong paper is also a good thing so it is less likely that the paper model collapses (but I have just been making these from regular A4 printer paper). You can also use rulers to make clean folds and use tweezers if something is too small to hold in your hands.

I wouldn't worry about the size of your son Jack. I met a man-mountain in Scotland that makes intricate scale models.
Mind you, even a silverback gorilla can be amazingly dexterous way beyond what people assume.
