Jurassic Park is a 1993 sci-fi movie directed by Steven Spielberg in which dinosaurs are brought back to life by extracting their DNA from mosquitoes preserved in amber. In the 2015 sequel Jurassic World, a technology-controlled dinosaur theme park has been set up on an island.
When I saw the movie, I was impressed by the ferociousness of the computer-generated tyrannosaurus. Over dinner that night, I decided to stay up late and try to build a paper model of a tyrannosaurus. I found a lot of inspiration during the design process, and eventually I came up with a tyrannosaurus model that can be adjusted to take various poses and is more flexible and fun than the rigid plastic models available on the market.
I’ve mentioned before that my daughters asked me to make a model of the green pet dinosaur belonging to George Pig, one of the characters in the Peppa Pig cartoon that they love to watch. There are already plenty of dinosaur models made by experts, but most of them are difficult to make and require large-sized paper if you are to make them properly. It wouldn’t be hard for me to copy these models, but I want to come up with a simple version of my own. Once again, we are using A4 printer paper, without any cutting and gluing. If one side of your paper is white, you can color it when your model is complete. The video tutorial is linked below. Give it a shot!
