News: Make Optimus Prime Papercraft

Make Optimus Prime Papercraft

Papercraft + Transformers = Fanboy nirvana.

Papercrafting is enjoying a renaissance thanks to its nerd-love. Popularity of card modeling boomed during World War II when paper was one of the few items whose use and production was not heavily regulated. Micromodels, designed and published in England, were a popular source of military-themed modeling designs.

Our buddy Daniel Davis at Tinkernut has brought us such diverse DIY joy, creating everything from mini air conditioners to phone line hacks. We love this artsy detour. Transformer papercrafting is surely another classic. Thanks, Tinkernut!
