Generation 1
Masaume's Devastator Model: Make Your Own!
jack - Friday, April 04, 2003

Mad Modeler Masamune is a top notch model builder who's made some really impressive models - not out of plastic, but paper. His model subjects are things like Gundam robots, cartoon characters such as the Power Puff Girls as well as other popular cartoon/robots including the Transformers!

The one that will really "meet" your eye is his Devastator model. The thing is HUGE and very detailed for being made out of paper. What's more, is he's made it up into a model kit with printer templates you can use to make your own Devastator. Thanks to Masamune, now you can download the Devastator 1.0 Model templates and instructions here for free (see about the model kit below).

Masamune "Mad Modeler" Washington on his Models

I have a transforming Omega Supreme in testbuild/revision. Designing these things takes many long months, be patient. There are working sketches for Optimus, Ultra Magnus, Arcee (she's neglected I HAVE to design a model of her), and Starscream. This all started a little over a year ago when I found the MYOTF site, and built a few. A coworker dared me to do better (we aerospace technical designers strive for excellence); he now has a Devastator standing on his desk.

For those who need more when Devastator is back online, I have hako-clones (when my website does return from the tomb of traumatized data). Hako-clones are simplified/super-deformed characters easy enough for anybody to build. I have a good portion of 1st season TFs there with another appearing every few months.

I'm sorry to tell everyone that Transformers are only one of my many many interests. I have a Gundam in design that is being begged for now (I need TIME people, chill it!), a series of my own custom robots, Neon Genesis EVA cyborgs, and methods to start designing somewhat more curved figures (wink-wink).

I hope this introduction gets many of you hooked on this form of modeling and check out two good sources for other models:

Most paper models are tanks and military aircraft, but there are many other subjects in smaller quantities out there. There are also other fantastic models designed by us (those few of us who do design) on - Paper Models.

Flame Toys has shared a number of promo photos for their first Furai Model series release - Optimus Prime. This licensed action figure model kit is priced at about $40 and will be approximately 6 inches tall when built. Flame Toys notes that the model will use a combination of hard ABS plastic for the main body structure, along with a softer plastic for the joints making up the 40 points of articulation for durability, and that while experienced modelers will be able to make this Optimus their own, the multi-color plastic injection process will also make this perfectly accessible to beginners. Click through see all of the photos.
