this is the first medium complex build I did. I built it in the summer of 2009. it's Ninjatoes young OoT Link. sadly this is the only picture I have of him since he disappeared sometime in 2010 and the next time I saw him he was flat under a box I moved in 2011.
too bad I didn't have a better camera.
the reason I'm putting it up now is to show that we all start from the beginning, so keep building, it'll get easier and easier and this is such a stimulating hobby that I don't want people to stop just because their first build is a work of love rather than skill. it's still a papercraft. you still put your work and hours into it. be proud of that crapfest! it's YOUR crappy build and at least you finished it!
and as soon as you're done: GO BUILD ANOTHER MODEL!!!
