What was the first papertoy that you put together? The one that started it all.
For me, it was a preprinted model of Fox's Arwing in an old issue of Nintendo power. I think I held it together with tape than glue but it came out very nice. This was more than a few years ago. I had no idea what was papercraft at the time so I didn't get into again until little over a year ago. But I still remember that Arwing model I made.
I think the Readymech Pirate by Fwis was my first, but I didn't really catch the fever until I saw Nana the monkey astronaut by Marshall Alexander. If you're reading this, Thanks, Marshall for getting me hooked on papertoys with your design!
i stumbled across a "nice bunny" papertoy on the "make" magizine website. i think i was looking for instructions on how to make a handheld atari but i noticed a post about a samurai bunny toy made out of paper. so i printed it out, put it together( i think i used wood glue because that is all i had) and as soon as it was finished i put it an my shelf and dove right back into the internet to find more. way to go Nice Bunny.
When I was a kid (sometime in the early 80s), I put together a carnival with a Ferris Wheel and lots of little pieces. No idea what company it was or what happened to it, but I vividly remember how satisfying it was to build.
The first papertoy i build was my own blank version. At that moment i had never heard about papertoys. Or maybe... yes, i once build some 'Fabeltjeskrant' characters. The first toys i found online were Brickboy and the Readymechs... I was really surprised to find all those great papertoys on the internet.
