Pertamina is the biggest state-owned corporation (BUMN) in Indonesia. It is an oil company which has 7 oil-mill and focusing its trade in Energy and Petrochemical. Divided into 2 sector,there are sektor hulu ("upper sector" that run exploration and exploitation of oil, gas, and geothermal) and sektor hilir ("lower sector" which distribute all Pertamina's products into consumer). The Pertamina oil trucks, i believe, are playing an important role in distributing one of Pertamina's product (gasoline) to the peoples. It delivers gasoline from Pertamina's oil-mill to thousands gas stations in Indonesia and can be seen easily on the street. Can be seen easily on the street doesnt mean that can get the references easier. On the internet, the references are minimum, and either the photos. So, i had to take the photos by myself and do some litlle reserach :D.

Based on Mitsubishi Fuso FN 517 ML

This Pertamina Oil Truck Papercraft was based on Mitsubishi FUSO Truck, precisely Mitsubishi FUSO FN 517 ML. It can hold 16000 L of gasoline and have 6 tyres (i think it has 10 tyres, 8 of them are on rear end). I tried to design this model as simple as possible but not to let the details gone. It was challenging thing (to design and to build) because  this model is quite small. You can find fire extinguisher, ladder, countershaft, and rear views in this model. Although it contains some small parts, this model is still easy to build. You only need to pay attention when building the tyres. The standard tyres that i give to you, have wedge shape. It makes the tyres not only more like the real ones, but also more difficult to build. So then, i give you two modes of tyres. The standard ones, and the optional ones. Please use optional ones when you have some difficulties when building the standard ones (see instructions).

Here are some photos of Pertamina Oil Truck Papercraft :

Short History

Italy was the first country in Europe that build pure attack helicopter, A129 Agusta Mangusta. Manufactured by Agusta company,the first A129 Agusta Mangusta prototype was have initial office flight on 15 September 1983, and the fitfth (the last prototype) was in the air by March 1986.It had start serving Italian air force since 1990 until present. The Mangusta has a typical helicopter gunship configuration: a sharklike fuselage with a conventional main-tail rotor drive configuration; tandem stepped cockpits, with the gunner in front and the pilot in back; stub wings for weapons loads, with two stores pylons per wing for a total of eight; and a nose-mounted day-night weapons sigh ( As far as i know, there are 3 variant of A-129 Agusta Mangusta. They are A129A prototype, A-129A Mangusta, and A129 CBT internatioal. CBT means combat. This is the most ultimate variant of A129 Agusta Mangusta. A129A mangusta has 4 rotor blades, and A 129 CBT has 5 rotor blades with better weapon (equipped with weapons that support air-to-air combat) and better engine.

A129 Agusta Mangusta armed with anti-tank, area supression weapon and of course, can operate during all weather conditions. These ability are standard for attack gunship like A129. A-129 Mangusta have proved its ability in Somalia during its peacekeeper operations. The Similiar helicopters (or maybe we can called it "the Rivals") are AH-64 Apache, Cobra, Ka-50 Werewolf, and Eurocopter Tiger.

A129 Agusta Mangusta Papercraft

I designed this papercraft in my refuge because of Merapi Mountain eruption. This activity just make me more comfortable, feel more like im home, as you know, even in the best refuge area, it wont be better than home. The design was done couple weeks ago (when i was in refuge), and it was impossible to do testbuilt in refuge area, and when i got home, I need a sometime to recover everything. After all the tihings goin right, i start doing testbulid. Volcano eruption is not an easy thing to forget, especially when you heard thundering sound from the volcano and felt tremor earthquake shaking your window all night long before it erupted.

Back to the model, this is my first aircraft design. I used to design tanks and cars, but actually i was entering this papercraft world with aircraft papermodel. I designed this model as simple as possible, but not to let the details gone. I prefer to used blocky (edged) shape rather than curve shape, it makes the models easier to build. And believe me, its easy to built tough.. In this model, I gave two choices for the cockpit, cokcpit with grey-to-white gradation and cockpit with plastic glass. For the test built i choose the second one so that we can see through inside the cockpit. I found some texture mistakes when doing testbuilt, but its have been fixed. If you still find some, please contact me. we go, A-129 Agusta Mangusta has been tested and ready to download freely. Remember, if you pay some dollars for this model, you were cheated!!!This A129 Agusta Mangusta is a free model.

Leopard 2 replace the early leopard (leopard 1) as the main battle tank of German Army since 1979. More than 3000 leopard 2s (in all version) have been manufactured by Krauss-Maffei, and its have served German Army and other countries untill present. There are various versions of Leopard 2 MBT such as Leopard 2A4, A5, A6, A6E, etc. Leopard 2A6 Military papercraft is based on Leopard 2A6's line drawings, photos, and specifications. It is on 1:50 scale and some detail parts are not made. Leopard 2A6 is further improved version of the leopard 2 main battle tank (MBT) include addition of the Rheinmetall 120 mm L55 smoothbore gun, increasing reliability and crew safety, improved protection against mines and some other changes. There are two main types of ammunition, carried by leopard 2A6, they are : the APFSDS-T anti-tank rounds and HEAT-MP-T multi-purpose rounds.This MBT is the one of the best tank in the world at present day.

Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is my first full camouflaged model. I choose 3 color camo pattern (green, black, and brown). This is preety difficult and need so many photos as references because I want to make it just like the real camo pattern. 3 months for texturing this model, it might be faster if i'm a realy "free" man and focusing my time to do texturing. It had took so long because i have to manage my time during my study, project, familly and other hobbies :D, but i really enjoy it. In the last 2 weeks i have tested this model and make sure that this Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is possible to build. After couple of months, this model is ready to download freely, please enjoy and happy building!!

Micro Papercraft

Blackhawk papercraft

The squardon :D

Su-27 Flanker micro papercraft

I made these tiny papercraft couple years ago, when i was in junior high school.I made BlackHawk, S-37 Berkut, F-16 fighting falcon, Comanche, F-22 raptor, Eurofighter Thypoon, Me Bf 109, and (this is my favourite) Su-37. All of these are stracth built. It means made by "no design". i saw the pictures of these aircraft, collect technical specification and line drawings, and draw the pattern instantly with pencil and ruler in asturo paper (once, i draw it on transparency). I ussualy divide 3 main parts of pattern, 1st is main part (wings, and tail wing), 2nd one is the fuselage, and 3rd one are additional parts. By this method, there will be no exactly same model because before i go to the 2nd part, i need to cut the 1st part. The size, geometry, and etc of 2nd part are depend on the 1st one. I can simply said there is no copy of the model because i was not build all by one, but one part to another, one by one..

This method is lack of precission, but because these model are small, i dont really worry about the detail that need such incridible precission. No one can see inside the cocpit of these model even if i able to build it :D

Merkava Mk 2 Papercraft

Merkava Mk 2 Papercraft

Disclaimer : by building it doesnt mean that i'm supporting IDF (Israeli Defence Force) with all they ve done in GAZA or other countries. This model was built without any intention of support ing everyone, everything, everycountry or everyaction related to war, discrimination, etc. This model was made just because its really nice design from

Model Specification :
Title : Merkava Mk 2 1:55 Papercraft

Coloring method : Some color tone was added, using water based color paint, then finished by clear aeorosol spray
Working time : +- 25 hours
Difficulty : Hard
Other material : None
How to download : visit

The original model was in 1:33 scale. To made it 1:55 i have to resize the pattern become smaller. Merkava with reduced size is not a good idea. I were facing some difficulties when making some parts, of course because this Merkava was designed for a bigger one. Merkava combine blocky shape and curvy shape and its kind a more challenging when built in 1:55 scale, and the most challenging thing is built some cilindrical parts... Small parts made it hard to assamble, i must made some modification with flaps, reinforcement parts, and color because in this size, it's hard to make this merkava neat. Helped by extraordinary weathering effect from original model (thanks to Mr. Julius), i were adding dessert color tone to made it more "weathered". Combining several color, and realize that some colors are stonger than the others is one of the key to made a suitable color and i m still learn on it. overall i really enjoy the process and happy with the result.

It may not the best one but i've done my best :)

How big 1:55 scale is?
