"After Folding" - Parts garage for Paper Racers

This is the "After Market" Parts garage for the Paper Racers, but we'll call it After Folding instead.  It's where you will find any Modifying parts, or extra parts, or just different designed parts.  Hopefully it will grow if everyone sends me their bodykit templates etc.  Pick up the Original Car here.

I will open up with the 1st part & it's a big thanks to paperkraft.net for listing my toys.  A GT Wing dedicated to the awesome website we all know & love.  Just click on the pic below & it should appear the correct size for the model, then click "Save As", & choose .bmp or .PNG as .jpeg tends to lose quality.  Just replace the existing wing with this one if you want to use it on a Racer.

When I get enough parts, I will put up a batch download in .bmp & .pdf formats.  So get designing.  Just remember to use the standard car body as the size reference.

Toy No.6 - Ninja Star

A few people have asked me why I dont make customs of my own models.  Well, I do hand paint 1 for my own collection if that counts, but the simple answer is, I don't have the time.

Coming from a background of more traditional designing mediums, like Pencil or Paint.  Adding digital graphic designs on to these templates is something I am still self teaching.

As for time, I am a full time Dad at the moment.  My days are spent looking after my baby boy Wyatt, so this doesnt leave a huge amount for experimenting.  So for the moment, I create the blanks so everyone else can enjoy them.  When he gets a little older, I will surely begin customising all the old templates.

This toy I created for Wyatt, as he finds wrapping himself in a blanket while I scream "Ahhh Ninja" Hilarious.  He is my Ninja Star, now here is yours.. and yes, I customised it, but there is a blank too.

Enjoy as always, & thanks for all your support & downloading so far.  Any Customs you make, I would love to have the template here so contact me to get it listed.

Paper Street Racers, Fast & Foldable

One of my 1st ventures in to the designing world was creating custom drawings for Street Racers.  They could either get it made as a Vinyl Decal or if they wanted, have it air-brushed.  I was in the process of putting a car together myself at that time, but have always been into the street car scene.

My brain started to drift (no pun intended) a couple of weeks ago, about creating a basic car template.  Which then can have Body Kit parts made & added.  If you then add some artistic touches on the template, you have your very own Customised Paper toy racer.

The 1st download of this toy will include the basic car, a Wide boy kit, Air Intake for the Hood, Front splitter, & a Wing.  I will add any other parts for download as I make them.  Here is a blank example of all parts so far.

I would love to start a Paper Racer Scene.  If you feel you can design another body kit or wing.  Maybe even a roof scoop.  If enough parts are designed, no 2 racers will look alike.  Especially once custom artwork is added.  Email me any templates you make & I will add them to the "After Folding" parts collection.

Its time to find your inner Need for Speed, & get Fast & Foldable.

Any Custom templates of finished models you would like made available for download.  Send to me & I will add to the post.

Toy No.4 - Witchdokta, The Shadow Toy

Inspiration for any art including paper toys can come from anywhere.  I always browse images of popular culture & some not so popular looking for that spark to form an idea.  I was going to have this as my Halloween toy but I wasn't sure I would finish the template on time.

This toy is based on Baron Samedi the Voodoo Loa, sometimes referred to as The Shadowman.  Modern depictions of him can be found in the James Bond movie "Live & Let die." & also in a few Marvel Comics from the 1970's.

The above Painting was done by an awesome artist called Chad Savage for his Sinister Visions collection of art.  Please go check his stuff out.  It is definitely worth a look.

Now is the Shadowmans time to become a paper toy.  I based the form of the template on the most obvious points such as the big teeth & the Hat.  Although most depictions are just Black & White, im sure a custom using Colours & Patterns will look equally awesome.

I wanted to try something new for this model.  As you know, customising the blank is a big part of the paper toy culture.  With Witchdokta, the teeth are a seperate piece altogether.  This means multiple sets can be made and changed to suit you.
This one still needs painting, so I will replace the Image once it's all finished.
I have provided a link for the blank as always.  The customs will come one day.  I just don't want to produce a custom until I am happy with my own digital skills.  But for now, I always Hand-paint my toys.

Customs are welcomed, even encouraged.  As it would be nice to know that the toys I am creating are giving Joy.. even scary Joy.  Please post download links for your customs in comments.

Download the Blank in all formats Here.

Im already testing a 2nd Version of this Model.  Making the eyes on the face instead of the hat, & making the Hat removable and interchangeable, just like the teeth.  Maybe even a body & a Cape.

Box Can on Juiced 2

As i've said before, Gaming, Street Cars & Paper Toys are all interests of mine.  So here is something I did one afternoon combining all three.

The toy in question is Box Can Designed by Filippo Perin aka PHIL.  I think this is one of my personal favourite Toy designs, & has certainly been customised by a lot of talented Artists.  Well, mine isn't paper but I couldn't resist.

So I will appreciate this Street Car Decal design as I crash it into every sharp corner.

Toy No.3 - Hex the Skull, Halloween 2010

I wanted to design a skull toy for Halloween 2010, but wasn't really sure of the basic shape to use, but then I started playing around with Hexagons, and it hit me.  Why not make the body of the skull using the basic format of a 10 sided Dice, & the name Hex was born.  It's basic but looks very cool.

The teeth are just glued onto the bottom face of the model, so can be close to the front edge, or as far back as you like.  This will add to the differing looks of the Hex's.

Instead of listing all the formats, I've decided to start having one download & packaging all formats in the same zip.

As always, please custom the template to your Hex'd hearts content, & please post your results in comments as a download link or picture.

Toy No.2 - "10-Pin" Customisable Pin Template (RETIRED)

This is a project I wanted to start for 2 reasons.  The 1st, is a customised collection of these pins on display would look awesome, in my opinion.  The 2nd is the fun factor.  If I can get enough customs made, then you can pick any 10 pins, build them, & have a cool game of Bowling in your hallway or Office.

Here is one I Hand-painted for my own display.

Im guessing a small Foam ball about the size of a Tennis ball should be a good choice of ammo.

Im sure this will bring hours of fun, so please feel free to download the best format of blank template for you, then customise & post your finished templates here in comments as a download link or picture.  Lets get this bowling ball rolling.

I retired this download in October 2011, but if you do really want it, send me an email using the Contact Tab & I will mail it back to you.  Thanks

Please include what format you would like.  For blank printing or .ai / .eps for digital customising.
