Paper Eagle Transporter Model

Without rescale, do someone know what scale is this paper eagle.
That's a tricky question to answer...... It depends how big you think a real Eagle would be. There does seem to be a bit of dispute about that.

In relation to the studio models it's kind of half way between the smallest and the middle size one. The paper model, at designed size, is roughly 17" long.

Best Regards.

I found something, i don't know if you have notified this, but here http://www.space1999.net/catacombs/main/cguide/umeaglescale.html, this will be usefull to find a exactly escale.
I found that the Eagle door measure is about 2m:think::think::think: than i make ''some'' calculations and reach 1/80 for Eagle scale(17''), correct me if I am wrong.

Only something, I found this after make my asking post.

Hello chaps!

My first post here and I thought I'd join in.
I was wanting an Eagle for my work desktop and my finances unfortunately won't stretch to the Product Enterprises Model or Warp kit, so I turned to a much more affordable option - free from the internet :)

The super-detailed paper model you all seem to be building doesn't appear to be available anymore from any of the listed links - and it's a tad too detailed and fiddly for a paper model for my tastes anyway, so I opted for the Danoman textured Eagle by S C Killenbeck.



I originally printed the head and shoulder sections at full size and constructed them. I quickly realised that it was going to be pretty huge, so I reprinted them at half size (2 pages per A4 sheet) and this is the result. It's pretty much exactly 10" - which is a nice size for my desk top. :)

The instructions are vague to say the least and actually aren't included in the textured version, you need to download the black and white version to get them. There are also a number of pieces that I have absolutely no idea what they were for, but it's a pretty neat model for a paper one - particularly if you make it at half size like I did. The only thing I'd change, really is the head, which is just a tiny bit too angular for my liking.

PS - I just realised I haven't put the maneuvering thrusters on the landing leg housing yet. They are so incredibly tiny, however, that I might not bother!

Awwww, Scarecrow I want your avatar, Will have to get an Iron Chicken instead, or maybe a soup dragon?

Love your paper eagle and welcome.

It's available on the paper model pirate sites. Not going to give you the link because they make money from other peoples hard work.
I'm very impressed with models made by the folks on this thread.
So, i've gone and re uploaded a zip with the original sheets that were available before websamba went down.
However, this zip is not for paper modelers wanting a copy for their archive.
This zip is just for you guys. I've been wanting to give you these files for a while but only recently plugged my old hard drive into my current machine. The important file is the 3D model of the parts used to make the paper model, hopefully you can put it to good use.
FYI it's a highly simplified version of tobors 3D eagle, so to make any additional detail parts use his 3D model as a base.

http://uppit.com/uhxbb3g07vco/eagle.zip
(this file is only for eagletransporter.com, this is the only site I will allow this file to be re-distributed on, please re-upload and update the link if it dies)

This file contains :-

finalwhiteparts.zip
The original 'white' parts used for the design test build.

allsheetscolor.zip
The final sheets that were released.
These colored sheets are by Marc Robitalle.

Intructions.zip
The html instructions needed to figure out where all the parts go.
Some parts changed, some were added, a few are alternatives, it's not difficult
to figure out where they all go.

complexleg.zip
An uncolored and untested experiment for a raisable leg.
contains the sheet and the 3D model

3D.zip
Contains the actual 3D model used to create the paper model - complexeagle.zip
This model is a collection of all of the individual parts placed into roughly
the correct position. All color used in the instructions have been removed.
This zip also contains 'two' more 3D models that may be of interest to someone.
1) eagle fighter, a concept for a fighter that could be mounted in the same
position as the 'pod'
2) warp eagle - enuff said. There are actually 4 models within this file, only
the warp model is visible, you'll have to find the others for yourself.

TopSecret.zip
Something for easter.

Enjoy

Totally impressive....

Hi Keith,

Thank you so much for letting us host this model. It is a fantastic piece of work, consider this a new home for anything you make if you want a free host, it's the least we could do for being so generous and sharing the fun, thank you.

I will get to building one for myself later this year but will probably make a few parts in plastic (I am thinking about a thin vac formed CM) I may cheat a bit more and make a carbon fibre spine too with balsa adding reinforcements where required. All this is to make a 22" Eagle following your basic design.

A big thanks again on this Keith,

I will be putting this up in the main paper model file area (via our own host) very shortly, and I will probably begin my build next week (but with a twist) :)

Hello:
This is the first post I have done on this amazing forum. I am giving this thread a bump because I am building this eagle and have done some re textureing of the tanks and want your opinion on them. If they are liked then I will be happy to distribute them to those who want them. I am very receptive to any comments you may have. The Pictures show the original on the right next to the re textured one on the left. So fire away:thumbup:

Jerry

jpetrel - yeah, I agree with Northerner. Yours are a nice improvement. Well done. And I would definitely like a copy of those sheets. I'm planning to start building my paper Eagle soon so would love to use your improved shoulder pods.

Cheers,

Lee

I have been trying to get a copy of the K.Withers/M.Robitaille paper eagle for some time now but ,like most people,every time I try a link to download it,it's gone!Does anyone know if it's still available for download and,if so,where?Any help appreciated guys,as after looking at some of the builds I desperately want to have a go!

Northener, unfortunately that doesn't help as it only allows the uploader to download the files. I know the guy who's looking.

Thanks very much for the correct links for the Eagle model,I've been trying to find this for sometime.Looks like I've got a lot of cutting,scoring and folding ahead!
