Legion Papercraft by DaiShiHUN Legion Papercraft by DaiShiHUN
Legion from Mass Effect 2 with an M-98 Widow Anti-Material Rifle. The model is approximately scaled to Xenonray's ME2 paper models for consistency.

I've used the alternative appearance textures that you get after finishing Legion's Loyalty mission. Original and alternative textures are both included in addition to legs that are not standing on a box.

Also my build has LED lights installed in it.

Difficulty: VERY HARD
Download [HERE]

Original texture and model belongs to Bioware

are there any tips you can give or show the parts you used for the led lights inside? I'm not mechanically inclined but I would love to try. Thanks so much, your papercrafts are amazing :D

Actually there's an electronics shop where I live where the owner is really helpful an i just chose the LEDs I want and he calculated what kind of resistors (or what they are called) I need, and also sold me the battery box too. I had one for 2AA batteries but he said i should use 3 batteries because ... reasons i cant remember but it made sense at the time (I'm not very electronics inclined myself :P).

So basically I used 11 white LEDs + appropriate resistors wired in parallel and a 3 AA battery box, can't really tell you what Ohm resistors or what type of LED sorry.

The eye piece has a bit of red plastic in front of the LED to color the light, as for the pipes:
They are made with 2 layers the outer one is the standard 180gsm paper with the pattern printed on it and the glowing holes are cut out.
The 2nd layer is red colored paper that is not cut out anywhere. the 2 layers are think enough so they stop the light of the LED inside the tube but the red color paper in itself lets it trough nicely.

Hope it helps.

I think it would help if I was more electronically inclined lol. Did all that weight help weigh it down? Thanks for the reply though. If I do get around to building this papercraft, I will definitely ask a more electronic person to help with the LEDs. :)

Is awesome! how much skill to do this :) Can i ask, why nobody does a reaper papercraft? :(
Reply
:icondaishihun:
I don't know about the skill needed but I actually don't find these hard to build just very tedious. (I usually listen to my audiobook collection while building)

As for why nobody makes a reaper ... dunno. Its a lot of time to convert or model a template not to mention to build a paper model. And I don't really liked how they look THAT much to invest that kind of money.
