OVERVIEW

My goal for this monstrous project was to create a customizable paper model for just about anyone to enjoy. After nearly 300 hours of work, I created 12 interchangeable kits for two standard paper sizes, allowing any hobbyist to easily build a custom Monster Craft model to their color preference and preferred level of difficulty. Additionally, for the first time on a papercraft project, I created animated instructional videos, making the assembly process even easier to follow. The completed model measurements, with an Upgrade Kit, are L:34" / W:27" / H:21" ( L:86cm / W:69cm / H:53cm )

    Hi. Firstly, your work is astonishing. Anyways, I’m fairly new to papercraft. I have patience and am generally good at anything I set my mind to, but I have a few questions before committing to a purchase.

    Would this kit be too difficult for someone who hasn’t built a model of this caliber before, or can anyone do it? Is there a skill that should be mastered elsewhere before attempting this, or if you make a mistake can you just reprint and try again?

    Next, and possibly a dumb question, is there a difference in the model between A4 and Letter Format?

    And lastly, if you had to ballpark a figure, how many hours would you estimate this model to take to complete for someone with novice ability?

    Thanks so much,
    Jeff

    • Hi Jeff. Thank you. You can do it, if you really plan on setting your mind to it. You have to know how to cut, fold, glue paper, and follow instructions. You car reprint and retry as many times as you need/want. A4 is European paper size, Letter is North American paper size. As for time estimate, build it and find out how long it takes. ;)

        Good deal. It looks like my nights are about to be all full for a long time. It may be a few months from now, haha, but I will eventually report back with an end result and an answer to how long it takes a newb to do something like this.

        • Very good. Have fun and enjoy it, for as long as you need to. I look forward to seeing your build.

  6. Such a great craft. Is it possible to resize this model?
    I want to put it on my worktable.

    • Yes, you can adjust the scale in the Print dialog.

  8. Андрей (Казань)

    Всем привет, тоже приобрел данную модель.
    Заканчиваю Zonda и скоро приступлю к созданию этого монстра.
    Очень хочется увидеть как он будет выглядеть в живую.
    Блин но вот только куда его ставить…….это вопрос.

    • I look forward to seeing your builds Andrey.

  9. Where can we buy the individual kits?

    • I only offer the bundles now, which include the individual kits.
