    Dear all,
    I would like to introduce my current project - the hand of Terminator T800 (Endoskeleton hand). As you know, you can buy resin model kit (Frontier models), but this kit has two problems. First one - it is little bit expensive. The second one - it is not a PAPER!!!

    I started this project a two / three months ago. Guy, called himself Tata, persuaded me to make this model. He is admin of sci-fi section of czech paper models forum. After these three months I have realized he is also a great modeler and person too. He is the only person who works on BETA model.

    I have downloaded a lot of free 3D models of Terminators. But Endoskeleton hands in all of these models were not like in the film (T2:JD). So I have deleted all of the 3D models and started looking for something else. I found a lot of pictures of this resin kit (and builds of it) so I decided to make a model according to pictures.

    3D model was created, designed and unfolded in Rhinoceros. I am still working on the small pistons, which are connected to the fingers (pistons on the pictures below are still WIP- I have to move and rotate them and somehow connect them to the "base") but the rest of the model is nearly completed.


    Photos of the build of this paper model:


    If possible, I will upload model somewhere on the internet. But, please, be patient. There is lot of work which has to be done (I am little bit scared about instructions), and currently there are also other "active" project I am working on.

    If you have any ideas, questions or just want to say "hello", please feel free to leave a comment...

    Wow! Your skill and detail is quite astounding. This is exactly how I imagined a paper terminator hand should look. I like how you didn't rely so much on textures but actually created all the ridges and lines using paper. Very crisp and flawless build. :thumb:

    I would love to see more build pics showing how you achieved such solid build quality. It would be a great tutorial.

    I think if you could build the entire exoskeleton, it would look extremely close to the original, but made out of paper! :mrgreen:

    I personally don't mind if you decide not to make instructions or if the instructions are very complex. Don't compromise on detail. Just seeing you build it is quite a pleasure to watch. I don't think I could build it as well as you could anyway.

    A truely outstanding piece of work.

    Only one small issue and that is with the site you are using to hold your pics, there are young people who use this site, we shoudln't be exposing the young to this sort of thing. Let them go find it for themselves :rolleyes:

    Thank you all for the reactions, It is very kind from you.

    So as I wrote in the first post, this model will be free for download. But please be patient, this model is still "under construction". The biggest problem right now is the construction of the small pistons for fingers. I have to move and rotate them a little bit. The fingers in the final model should be fully moveable (with fully functional small pistons).

    To bill516: I was using this site for holding pictures for two-three years maybe and never had problems with them. The problem with "that kind of advertisement" is matter of few months ago (maybe I was only so lucky that I have never seen this type of ads in the past on that site). So I am really sorry and I can promise that the next picture will be held somewhere else.

    Very interesting! I love the Terminator. Looks like it could hold the fullsize pulse rifle.
