Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

I recently created some interest into Automata, but where to start?
Most paper Automata is stuff you need to buy, but after some research I found some amazing free stuff.

All the free paper Automatas I found are from these two pages:

There are some nice Christmas automata between the links!

The following was one of those free paper automatas that is now abandonware. I wonder if it is ok to continue to distribute items that have been abandoned by their artists, or if that goes against some sort of copyright infringement of some sort.

You are correct dmc, all models by Paperpino are free for download. You need to pretend you're going shopping but in the end you'll pay zero dollar/euro.

I remember that you were into automata, so I hope you can forgive me that I had to look Geneva stop up...

The models of Paperpino are amazing and I will enjoy building them!

Good to hear that I had something to do with you starting with papertoys.
Sjors Trimbach started mine fascination for papertoys.

Well there is a lot out there, and I can't link to every file on the net. But to give you an indication of how much there is out there: my papercraft folder is 5.8GB and that without duplicates (I had to clean up my external harddrive recently so that why I sure ;) )

Yo Matthijs, thanks for the links! (Niets mooiers dan het internet afstruinen.) And for the non-dutch, nothin' better than marauding the internet. And thanks for starting me of on this paper thing, somewhere in may I tripped over a picture of Grumm. Shackled to a wheelchair and a toy (or two) a you can guess... I want more!!!
Grtz and may the P be with you! Methuup.
