Andi Rüegg, a talented Swiss paper modeler, has come up with the idea of building a 50% version of MACHINA. Honestly, I thought he couldn’t do it, but the final result is simply fabulous. See his construction report (very informative) at Kartonbau.de, a German paper modellers forum.
Mauther, from Brazil, owner of PAPERMAU, (a huge collection of free original and exclusive paper models and the best, rare and unusual free papercrafts of all the world!) dedicated one of his lovely American 1950’s style garages to me. Thanks a lot!
This model is my free interpretation of the mechanical hammer designed by Leonardo da Vinci. After putting sand in the upper container, its fall causes the paddle wheel to turn, which in turn drives the mechanical hammer cam. NO GLUE is needed for part assembly! 2 models in 1! The crank operated mechanical hammer + the sand powered mechanical hammer. Recreational, educational, enjoyable! Ideal gift for inquisitive and smart people…
Thanks to the RIP Technology, no glue is needed in order to assemble the model… and you can assemble, disassemble and reassemble the model over and over again. Funny!
Grazie alla tecnologia RIP l’assemblaggio del modello è effettuato senza colla… e potrai quindi montare, smontare e rimontare il modello più e più volte. Divertente!
My name is Giuseppe Civitarese (aka Pino), from Trieste, Italy. I am an oceanographer, and in my second life I am a card models builder and designer. My passion for paper modelling began in 2000, when I decided to build a paper castle for my little nephew Matteo. Later, Matteo never built any paper model. On the other hand, since then I've never abandoned this hobby. My specific interest is in designing paper automata, and terrestrial and celestial globes from digital replicas of antique maps.
