I've been designing figurines for a while now. My first foray was actually branded 'Paper Soldiers' and contained my first attempt at posable figurines, Stormtroopers/SandTroopers:
Happy, but not really satisfied, I moved on to B1/OOM droids, which were made and designed to be fully posable. These were in many ways the precursor to the Paper Protagonist. I've rebranded them and released 1:35 versions (previously they were only available in 1:50).
Like the B1 and OOM droids, the STAP is a previous release not readily available anymore. I've rebranded this and released a 1:35 version, but otherwise this is identical to the release originally found at swminiatures.com (now defunct).
If I were completely honest with myself, I really designed the B1's with this vehicle in mind. It stands as one of my favorite.
These are available for free for registered members in my store at tcfgaming.com
ps The Paper Soldier Stormtroopers (et. al.) are still available in the 'Obsolete' section of my store.

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
