Paper Eagle Transporter Model

Paper Eagle

I don´t know about the paper model you are requesting, however I built mine using Withers and Robitaille patterns, so I suppose you can simply enlarge them to the size you like, however be warned: The files did not have chips to make the textures of the legs or the cabin or the pod, I printed them twice: one for making the surface and the other for making the details.
In the case of the pod I needed to print it trice because the door has too many details inside it.

If you are going to enlarge the patterns be sure to check the size before printing because the files are tiff files instead of svg files making them prone to distort.
 
Thank you

Thank you for the advice 😃

I am currently on with a double sized build of the paper eagle.
Ive got the command module done to a standard I am happy with & have got part of the cage done.
I have used varying thickness of paper/card to get the cage/parts to the point where I am happy with them.
Its going to be a long/part time build so in no hurry.
I have been resizing/cutting the passenger module today so I can make it with as few pieces as possible & the joins are as hidden as possible.
The sides/top can be just about done (in double size) with a a4 sheet for one half of the top and full side making the join under the spine when its fitted. Done a test run today & it looks like it will work ok with the ends separate & the join in the middle of the roof of the passenger compartment.

I noticed that the photos are all gone.
Is this model still available anywhere???

Have a look in the free templates and instructions section of the forum.

The files I am using for my build are there in a zip file.

I have resized the parts for my build to double size to make a larger model.

I really must try and get a bit more done on it as it has been stalled for quite a while.

Thank you very much for the link. I greatly appreciate it! Once I have the time to build again, I will post a build thread.
 
Are we ever truly finished with one of these fantastic paper models? :no:

Although I built the passenger pod from the original files, I would like to build another from heavier paper, and with some color. Is anyone willing to share their work with the VIP or Rescue colors?

Thanks kindly!

I second that (VIP and Rescue colors).

Maybe some of the other payloads too?

I've printed the Eagle, but it looks daunting. I have a 1:144 Saturn V to finish first anyway.
 
Was the site down/hacked for a bit there?

Anyway, I decided to answer my own request, and put together an "interpretation" of the Rescue Eagle pod. I wanted it to look well-used, with peeling paint and extra shading. I have yet to fold it up, but thought I'd share what I've come up with so far.

Obviously it is based on the Withers/Robitalle template, but has been modified to (1) add red stripes, and (2) remove the 'kink' that crossed thru the bottom of each door. This template requires multiple prints on heavy paper that you use to create both raised and recessed sections. I simply printed copies on standard printer paper, and then used spray adhesive to glue these copies onto construction paper of the appropriate thickness.

I will share this template with the group once I get back from vacation in a couple of weeks.
