Japanese papercraft artist creates amazing Gundam masks

Japanese papercraft artist Tomowo (@tomowo_PS2) has been turning cardboard into finely detailed and high quality masks of iconic designs from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Star Wars, Iron Man, and other classic fiction for years, but his latest Mobile Suit Gundam creation may be his best yet. If colored in, the expertly designed RX-93 ν Gundam could pass for the real thing.

Tomowo doesn’t spare any effort when mapping out the details of his craft, as you can see from the digital blueprint below.

Once everything is set up, Tomowo gets to work on a time-consuming process that involves printing, a Fabool laser cutter, and making sure he lines up everything to the sharpest detail.

And then it’s fun for the whole cardboard Gundam family!

During business calls.

School entrance ceremonies.

Tomowo has quite the collection of awesome masks.
