Paper Wolf

by

Pretty cool paper sculpture kit for under $10. If I was 14 I’d want it, but I’m not 14, and I still want it. [Found here.]

Pair it up with this, and you’ll be your nephew’s Favorite Uncle (or your niece’s Favorite Aunt) forever.

Don’t forget the paint.

    You may find something else to be the “cool aunt/uncle” with at one of these links, too:

    I haven’t made any of them yet, but I have downloaded a number of papercraft models for Star Wars ships and walkers, Hedwig from Harry Potter, and assorted other things such as sundials, orreries, and carousels.

    I never did much “Paper Craft,” at least not from kits. I cut out an unusual paper airplane design that was published in OMNI decades ago, and it flew just like it said it would.

    This one was pretty awesome for the 3D following effect. The dragon stares and turns its head as you walk by.

    When I was in JrHiSkool I designed a paper airplane that was essentially a long glider, laterallly unstable, but it could carry a payload of confetti. When launched from a balcony tier of Riverfront Stadium, it would glide, stall and drop its load, then continue into the Bengals’ endzone.

    I remember seeing that dragon some years ago. There are some impressive “optical illusion devices” being contrived these days. I recently saw one that was an arrow pointing one way, but a mirror behind it showed the arrow pointing in the other direction. Turn it the other way around, and the arrows still appeared to point in the same direction. You can see it here, although that’s not where I saw it.

    I had a paper plane design around my junior HS years that was no great shakes, but did some nice loops and turns. One of those wide, mostly flat designs, as opposed to the narrow “dart” styles that were popular at the time.

    Re: Paper airplanes: My geometry teacher did fun stuff if we got ahead of the other class. One was a paper airplane competition. The winner for speed was the guy who wadded up the paper and threw it at the chalk board.

    I always enjoyed optical illusions and science tricks. Never saw the arrow one before.
