Science Fiction Ship Replicas Made With Paper

X-Wing paperWhat can you make if you have a talent with folding paper in exceedingly precise ways? A paper aeroplane? Some origami?

How about perfect replicas of science fiction ships? That’s just what a Japanese craftsman has done. Using only paper, he has managed to make exceptionally detailed replicas of an X-Wing fighter, Tie Interceptor, and AT-ST (Star Wars), Viper Mk2 (Battlestar Galactica), Aries, Orion, and Space Station V (2001: A Space Odyssey), and Endurance (Interstellar). As well as these science fiction ships, he’s also made Apollo 13’s Aquarius Lunar Module, which is perhaps his most detailed model.

I’m blown away by how awesome these are. I wonder how long it took him to design and create each one, and which his favourite is. Mine is probably the Lunar Module. Onwards!
