When i printed patterns of this model, i found that there must be a trouble in my printer. The color wasnot printed correctly. As the time goes by, the quality of the color was rapidly decreased. So then, i decided to repaint my patlabor Ingram papercraft manually with "cat poster", or perhaps you can say water based color. I choose this paint because i have models with 3-5 years old, painted with this type of water based color. and it still have nice color (the quality has not been decreased)

Optimus Prime Papercraft (front)
Another awesome and free model from paper-replika.com, this is Optimus Prime papercraft (head). It was designed by Julius Perdana, an Indonesian papercraft designer who also hosted paper-replika.com. Its head, has Nine pages, consist of 8 pattern pages and 1 cover page. It has been released with complete instruction on it's site, so i didnt have any worry when i decided to build it. Printed on 190 gsm ivory paper with canon pixma 1300 printer, the color was not printed correctly, and i decided to repaint this model when i finished then. I spent almost a month to built this model because i have a lot of things to do and,still, i have an exam for almost 2 weeks. So i have to make it about only 15 minutes per day, no matter what, because i think, its just a hobby, and i have another responsibilites out there, so i take my time wisely. Its hard to do, but it works!!
How do i made this papercraft for step by step will be posted soon.. :)
