Queen Chrysalis papercraft by muffinshire Queen Chrysalis papercraft by muffinshire
Fully assembled model of the final version of my Changeling Queen Chrysalis papercraft design. Printed at this scale (four A4 sheets) it stands approximately 20cm (8") high, excluding the horn and crown. This is an evolution of my earlier Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon models, with improvements to the shape of the head and the assembly (that pesky rump is easier now).

MLP:FiM and characters are property of Hasbro and Lauren Faust. Made only for fun and non-profit use, out of appreciation for the excellent animated show.

Update: Thanks to the efforts of Grandmoonma in correspondence with Calpain from Equestria Daily, EqD now has a pony craft roundup (similar to its art, custom toy and plush roundups), and this papercraft kit was included in the very first post!

Hi, which paper do you use? I'm searching for a good paper and i can't figure out which one is the best to build papercraft models. Glossy? Matte? Textured? Photo paper? 
Could you give me a little help? >.< 
(Sorry for my english, my native language is portuguese)
Thank you!

How do u print it out so it is the right color? I printed it out on normal, ffast draft, and best quality,and it's a brownish-gold. And the hair and wings are a neon green.

Having a colour profile for your printer helps. It's basically a set of instructions telling the printer how to use its inks to try and match the colours as represented on the screen. Google for your printer's make and model along with the search term "ICC color profile". Hopefully, you should find the color profile for your printer, which will be a file with the extension .icm. Once you've downloaded it, double-click it to install (that's assuming you're using Windows, of course). There may be several colour profiles available for different paper types. When printing, make sure the printer is set to use the appropriate colour profile (if you're in Windows 7 or Vista, the control panel icon Color Management lists all devices like monitors and printers and allows you to select the colour profile; if you're in XP, go into the Properties dialogue for your printer and select the colour profile from there). Sorry if this is a little technical, but screen-to-print colour fidelity is a complicated topic.

Man, I've been waiting for this. Can't wait to get woorking on it. Do you use a different material for the wings for transparency?

Also: I printed Celestia and NM on a single A3 sheet. Will this model be to scale if I do the same?

Yes, I used printable clear film for her wings. It was a special porous film for inkjet printers (inkjet ink won't dry on ordinary acetate film, and you can't put it through laser printers either). You could always just use coloured film for the wings and not print on them at all - there isn't much printed detail on the wings anyway, and it's not very distinct when it's translucent.

And yes, the model should be to scale if you print on a single A3 sheet. They're all constructed from the same base model with the same scale factor.
