Front Mission 4 Papercraft Models

Front Mission 4 Papercraft Models

David Smith

Neat-handed mecha fans may be interested in a fun series of downloads released today by Square Enix. As part of its ongoing promotion of Front Mission 4, it’s issued a set of papercraft models representing two Wanzers from the latest game in its long-running mecha strategy series.

The models are PDF documents, suitable for printing out on heavy paper. Enterprising modelers can cut out the pieces thus produced, then fold and glue them into the form of a robot model — show-goers from last year’s E3 may remember Konami giving away a similar promotion for Metal Gear Solid 3.

Here are the links to the two Wanzer models:

While the instructions are in Japanese, the illustrations are easy enough to follow for smart modelers. If you happen to have an empty afternoon to fill, download and enjoy.
