Pepakura is papercraft.
I havn't seen any shown on here.
Thought I would share.
I found the plans on
It is actually a very good. If anyones interested.

I built this with some construction paper I had lieing around, worked wonders.
But Card paper is suggested.

Ignore my junk pile of left over paper in the corner of the pictures... Eheh.

Handles. Easier then I thought to make. But still a bit tricky.




Side with knobs.

Even comes with a Clippard

The only thing I do not like is the er... Whats it called again?
Trigger set 2?
But as you can see here, it doesnt connect, and it was a real pain to glue on!
The one part is also square, making it even harder to put on a circle...
Yes I realize it is also backwards... But oh well.

So there you have it. I might add more pics to this topic as I go.
Need to resin it, sand, it, paint it. All that fun stuff.
And some things I am going to hopefully order soon off MMM.

how do you plan to fiberglass this when you're done, it doesnt look like it would be a simple task? why not use pvc for the clippards/handles after putting resin on the body of the gun?

i think if i tackled this, knowing i would be doing alot of intricate folding id try my best to do as little extra work as possible. i could see it being helpful for some parts of the pack though.

after my jetpack im going to try my hand at a half pepakura rocketeer helmet. and full pep a dr.fate helmet.

Hehe, all the parts are not attached.
Its handle/ main body.
Grips are hot glued to the handles, its pretty much plastin resin holding it on.
It shouldn't be that hard a task to fibreglass resin it.
I don't plan to actually fibreglass the inside. Don't think its needed.
I made an Iron Man helmet. And its 100% durable. I dont plan on smashing it against anything...

Clippard, knobs, and all those smaller parts. I will resin, then screw them on as you normally would.

I think the hardest task will be clean up/sanding.

But durability is not a problem.
Fibreglass resin is tough stuff.

Pepakura is an excellent tool for costume and prop making. That said I think this project is not one that should use it. You'd have much better and faster results building with styrene or MDF and tube stock.

Eh, no money. I was desperate to get something done.
So this was very simple.
Mirror image?
Eh. According to the plans and pictures I used, this is correct.

I dont even want this now since its **backwards**
The pack designs are backwards too.
Left handed?
Eh who knows.

Ima just grab an MM kit when I get the money.

dude. finish the job and make a lefty pack. or flip the plans. not a huge deal. you got lucky and it was caught sooner than when you were figuring out the pack.

Yeeeah, I was about to explain my point but I figured I would be just wasting time since its so obvious.

if its anything other than "im welding my pack" is a point he's trying to make, he failed. because welding isnt any easy option, much less accessible to 80 percent of the people here.

try again.

Haha, one step ahead of you.
Its drying outside right now.
Next is sanding, and painting.
Might sell it later.
I aint making the pack though.
Figured while I had this, I would make some thinks in Pep for pack though.
Have Ion Arm, ladder, and some other stuff.
All I need for my pack now is lights, and wires.

YAY, first packs almost done.
Next one will be better. Yes yes.

right, because bending and welding metal is so much easier, because everyone has a welding torch, tanks, and various other crap that goes with it.

Heh, its just a temp gun, like I keep saying.
But its resined.
need to pick up some paint and sand paper to go further.
its actually more durable then I thought.
Its paper. I am not too worried about something happening to it.

P.S. I know its messy, and needs cleanup. But ^^^ Look up.
As long as you can tell what it is. Ima fine. hehe.

Pepakura isnt a good approach for long tubes things...
**I.E. Handles.
Its too flimsy.
Eh.. Might try and cut the handles out, and pick up some PVC.
