Template updates on earlier Models

Due to my increased understanding on how to build Paper toys, & how to lay out the templates.  Plus the fact that my own knowledge of the software used to create better looking templates has improved.  I have decided to re-do some of my earlier Model templates.

The posts are still there but the old template downloads have been removed, & replaced with updated versions.  This shouldn't change the look of the completed toys, just the Aesthetics of the template, & improvements on the tabs for building etc.

If you have these templates already, please grab the new ones.  If you didn't get them before, then go get them now.  The templates changed are:

Rockface - Paper Toy
Customisable Paper Mug
10-Pin - Bowling Pin Toy

Gashuku 2011 Penguin

The local Funakoshi Dojo Sensai asked me to make a Toy Mascot for the 2011 South African Gashuku in May.  When he mentioned he wanted a penguin, because the theme will be Happy Feet, I instantly thought, there is a lot of paper penguin already out there, but I wanted to give it a go.

My customising has improved over the last month or so, & although it's still a challenge, I hope you agree, it turned out ok.  Dr Gert Smit who requested the toy was happy with the finished Model, so I guess I achieved my goal.
The download contains the Penguin template with the Funakoshi SA logo, and Gashuku print on it, plus a template with just the standard Penguin.

Genetically Altered - 14" Camoflage Custom

I was sat around sketching & painting a hand drawn Picture of Genetically Altered, when I had a brainstorm.  Wouldn't it be cool to have a massive version of the template, with an urban type skin.  With that said I found a very cool Camoflage texture on a DeviantART members page, Jaqx-Textures 
Basically, I resized the texture to the size of the template pages.  Cut out the template sections, then overlayed the two images.  The result looks awesome if I may say so myself.
I wanted to get the Toy as large as possible while keeping the template on A4 size sheets.  Once built, the finished model is approx. 14 Inches tall.

Enjoy the toy & please send me any pictures of your built model, posing outside somewhere.  I will post them here to share with everyone.
