Other minifigs can be found on his webpage here (but no more pirates).
This website also contains the blueprints which you can download.

Hello there!
Ever since I can imagine, I've been a big lego fan and I still love playing with the little plastic bricks.
I'm always amazed of some of the awesome MOCs people make on Classic-Pirates.com and other MOC sites!
Another big hobby of mine is papercraft, and a while ago I thought: "let's combine those two to make my favourite lego minifigs out of paper!" ;o)

I already made several papercraft lego minifigs but the first one was captain redbeard (called kapitein Knoest in Dutch) because that's probably still my favourite minifig of all time! ;o)
Although technically it's not lego of course, but I hope you and the readers of Classic-Pirates.com still like it!
I really enjoy making papercraft models of all kinds of things, and I'm finding the papercraft minifigs a lot of fun to make, so I hope to make many more in the future!
greetz,
ninjatoes

That deserves a place on the blog :pir-classic:

That honestly blows my mind, everything looks so exact and to proper scale.

Impressive.

Looks really impressive on the pics, but I can't really see what these should be good for other than catching dust. I had a brief look through the instructions and it seems really tricky to put together correctly.

The scale fooled me, I thought it was minifig size.
But judging by the pictures in the assembly manual,
only the head itself already has a diameter of 20 cm,
which would make the whole figure about 80 cm tall?

Those are really cool, well done.
I wonder if he uses Pepakura or is it hand made somehow?

On this picture you can compare the size to a normal minifig:

This is really good,I have no idea how he made it, apart from the hat the rest of it looks just like a normal minifig (and its huge)
