    I saw a few other papercraft threads, but I feel that this really warrants its own:

    [​IMG]

    As there are quite a lot of images I'll put them in spoiler boxes:

    Big Mario
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Bowser Jr.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Baby Luigi
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Yoshi
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    King Boo
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Toad
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Koopa
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Peach
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Petey
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    So how did I make them?

    Well I found the original 3D models of the characters from Mariokart Double Dash (.3ds and .max format, if anyone wants them [​IMG] )

    I edited them in 3D Studio Max, to seperate parts, delete unnecessary parts, and adjust stuff.

    Then using a program called Pepakura I turned them into a flat net, which usually required quite a bit of editing to make it usable.

    Then I copy pasted the result into Paint Shop, and coloured in the Net.

    Then I printed them off, cut them out, scored EVERY fold and tab, and glued them together. Which was by no means an easy feat.

    Most of them have around 600 polygons, and use about 4 sheets of A4 Paper.

    The large mario has 644 polygons, stands 85cm tall and used over 3 square metres of cardboard. [​IMG]


    Also, my sister did help, she made the Yoshi, Peach and Petey models, and made a few parts of the big one.

    Finally, if anyone wants to attempt these themselves I can post the original nets that I made, though some credit (somewhere) would be nice [​IMG]

    P.S. Feedback is welcome [​IMG]

    Wow, those are amazing! Great job.
    Browser Jr. looks the best IMO. But still they are all great.

    I think these are superb:

    But I think the dotted lines are too heavy. I would've omitted these, it spoils the image a bit, especially with this Peach one (she literally looks scarred for life):

    [​IMG]

    Anyway, you did a great job. You should put these online as cut-out models.

    Great job printing and assembling it [​IMG]
    Too bad the dots are too visible.
    I found a website once with many paper fold models (kingdom hearts, FF, etc.)

    Does your models (.max and .3ds) are free to download ? can't you put it on the web ?

    The Mario was 50 A4 sheets, stuck onto large pieces of card. (The printer was working hard!)

    As for Boo:

    They can be scaled up/manipulated if you want [​IMG]

    Just a tip - make the inside of the mouth, tongue and teeth, stick them all together, and stick them onto the front part of the body, before you stick the halves together [​IMG]

    Also, it's easier if you use a quick drying glue like UHU or Bostik, and score the folds before assembly.

    @Cyan, I can upload them if you want them [​IMG] I didn't know if anyone would want them!

    P.S. About the dotted lines... If I didn't have them, I wouldn't know where to fold!

    Thanks for the replies [​IMG]

    I am eventually planning to make every character! Though that may take some time.

    And Cyan, here is the stuff as I revieved it:

    MariokartDDModels.rar

    The .3DS files are in there, along with the textures, there are also .max files contained within /Mariokart Double Dash/ the character. I'm not sure if this was something I did or not [​IMG]
