At first glance at this picture, you’d think you were looking at an AK-47 covered in white paint. But on closer examination, you’ll realize it’s actually an intricate papercraft model.
Created by artist Martin Postler and Ian Ferguson of London’s Postlerferguson, these one in the photo above was created for an art exhibition back in 2008. You too can have your own paper arsenal, thanks to Postler’s series of papercraft weapons that are available for purchase.
In addition to the original AK-47 design, there’s a paper M4A8 carbine, an mp5, an Uzi, and a grenade (also known as a “Mills Bomb”). All you need is some glue, scissors, and a lot of patience to build your own life-size weapon models.
Keep in mind these are not easy things to put together, and they require some serious paper cutting and gluing abilities if you want them to look as good as the pictures. Each of the models is available over at gestalten for €19.90 to €19.90 (appx. $20 to $27 USD) each.
Paper bullets not included.
