G1 Transformers Papercraft: Omega Supreme

Gus Santome usually creates mini paper toys, but in this case he has created something considerably larger! This paper model is of the G1 Transformer, Omega Supreme. Omega is described by the Transformers Wiki as:
" of the largest Autobots there is. He isn't much for words, preferring his massive frame and equally massive weapons to do the talking for him. Omega is the last line of defense for the Autobots, a titanic guardian robot capable of instilling fear and panic into the sparks of Decepticons that dare face him on the field of battle."
The PDF template for the model may be downloaded here. TIP: The model may be modified to be pose-able by making use of metal paper fasteners found in most office supply stores.

Origami Violets

I haven't done a post on origami in a while, so today is the day. Being partial to origami flowers, I thought these violets created by Origami Around were most excellent. These are not a project for the origami purist as they are created from more than one square of paper and some gluing is involved. Instructions on how to fold the violets may be found here.

Other Origami Flowers:
Long Stem Rose
Lotus Blossom

Concrete Pump Truck Paper Model

On construction sites, sometimes a concrete pump truck is used to pour concrete in hard to reach places. A flexible boom on the back of the truck allows liquid concrete to be pumped to considerable heights and also up and over obstacles. This papercraft pump truck is offered as a free download on the Mansei Restaurant (Tokyo) website. As you can see from the photos, the boom arm and stabilizers are movable. Concrete pumps were first invented by European engineers in the 1920's and 30's.
