I've made a lot of papercrafts years ago (which were all destroyed eventually) and decided to try it out again. I doubted a bit if I would upload this or not since I thought it wouldn't really fit in my gallery, but decided to give it a try at least. I had a lot of fun creating this papercraft of one of my favorite Pokémon, Sceptile. It took me roughly four days to make. The Sceptile represents for me my own Shiny Sceptile I got through soft resetting in Emerald. I think my Shiny Sceptile is my rarest shiny because it is female (12,5%) and the opposing Pokémon wasn't shiny (50%). I also got it pretty soon. It is nicknamed as Razor and although I wish I had given it a more original name it has always been in my team. ________________ Photographs and Built by =KentLaiton Model Template by Brandon from Paperpokés www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2011...

Ah yes those were quite a challenge. For the tail, I had folded the end of the leaves a bit so it had a surface to be pasted to the base tail. For the red balls, I picked out the best surface to paste on the body. In both cases I used liquid glue, because the paste glue doesn't work well. Sadly, liquid glue gives more stains so you need to be careful on that. On this papercraft I had repainted the ugly stains with the color as close to the model what I could get. You really need to hold the glued parts together for quite some minutes, and eventually they will stick together firmly with liquid glue. Try not to let go off of it too soon, better hold them together a bit longer than letting them loose too early. I hope I could help a bit, I'm not very good at explaining I think. xD
Oh I see, so which kind of liquid glue should I use? I used to work on sceptile but i failed. Because of those leaves and balls. I tried using super glues on the leaves, but no use because it easily got off the tail. Maybe that's the first ppc that I've failed lol
I myself have glue which is called 'knutsel lijm' in Dutch which is roughly translated called tinkle or fiddle glue. xD I don't know if they have something like that in your country but it's just a cheap glue which looks like white liquid but dries up transparent. Maybe the glue I have is also similar to super glue. It indeed can fall easily off at the beginning but if you hold the pieces together for a while they stick great and are very difficult to detach again.
Oh yeah I use the glue which looks milky too lol but I was afraid that milky glue couldn't attach those because it was quite hard. Anyway thanks for your advice, I don't think I'll do Sceptile again lol, I prefer Dragon ones lol
Yeah I think it takes quite a while to get used to those kinds of glue. I had bought it because I looked up for advanced papercraft tutorials and they recommended those kind of glues. You're welcome. And yeah Dragons are my favorite too. Sceptile is a bit Dragon-like in appearance and moveset but... not Dragon enough lol. xD
That's amazing. Only those in ROM hacks would be considered as semi-legit, right? (just like I have a semi-legit Shiny Reshiram soft reseted with the use of a code to get rid of the shiny block put on it)
xD Okay, practie makes the champion, right? (this is a german phrase dont know if it works in english too in this way, but the sense is the same I think) The Poke-generation with Sceptile is one of my favourite generations and I have even a soft toy of Treecko xD.
Yes, haha that's right xD. In german Pokewiki is the website for everything about Pokemon. The website is so great and a bit freaky... I mean it's just like Wikipedia, there are the most unnecessary etries, but actually they're necessary
Oh... My.... God O_O This is awesome Kent!!!! I have an origami class at school but we have not gone too far into things like this! I love this!! Do Charizard or Lucario or Lugia next! That would be awesome! 8D
