Hitchhiker's Guide Papercraft Bobbleheads

Here is a nifty collection of  papercraft bobbleheads depicting characters from the BBC's 1981 television adaptation of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  Included in the set are Marvin the Robot, Eddie the Computer, Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent. Each of the bobbleheads is the creation of UK papercraft designer BazookaJo. Templates and instructions for the models may be downloaded here.

1956 Ford Thunderbird Paper Model

Here's an antique paper model of an antique car. This papercraft 1956 Ford Thunderbird was created in 1957 by Otto Ravensburg, a German designer. The model is definitely not for beginners! One factor contributing to the difficulty is that the instructions are in German and do not include any images. A download of the template may be found here. Thunderbirds were first produced for the 1955 model year.
