Koopa Paratroopa Papercraft by PaperBuff Koopa Paratroopa Papercraft by PaperBuff
This is for my 5 year old son. I shouldn't have shown him the picture 'cause he got on my case about this for 2 weeks. I finally obliged. Now my other son is asking for a regular green koopa troopa. Aaah, a parent's work is never done. :)

He's a fun little thing. Far from a perfect model as the design has some flaws but that shouldn't stop anyone from building it.

I used the PDO file from nintendopapercraft.com [link] Click the Mario button on the right side of the screen. I recommend using the PDO so you can see how it's constructed.

You did one of my favorite playable characters =) It looks like it would've taken awhile to construct with how good it looks! If I were 5 again, I would've asked you to make me one too :+favlove:

Who wouldn't love a Koopa, right? Truth is, he didn't really need to do a lot of convincing. I just had to find the time to do it.

As for how long it took to make, I approximate about 6 hours total, maybe 7 split into two days.

Many thanks for the props. I love your MS Paint one. I am totally untalented in that area.

Yep, I don't know anyone yet who hates koopas ^^ I can see why yours turned out so great now because you invested a lot of time into it. Thanks for nice comment on mine btw. I'll have to try paper crafting sometime =)

Haha. Thanks. The camera hides a multitude of sins. :) But seriously, I think it turned out great. I still don't know how I was able to make it stand for it's photo op.

I did adjust the transparency of the lines on the PDO so it wouldn't show up too much. It's still there if you look close enough, don't think I could do this one completely lineless.

I also had to get a bit creative on attaching those wings. And, is it just me or does the head really doesn't stick flush to the shell? Oh, but that shell is all kinds of awesome. I almost didn't want to put the other parts on it.
