The (long awaited) X-Men Sentinel

X-Men Sentinel

Just when you thought it was safe to remove this page from your bookmarks... POW!



Yes, I've actually got him finished. Got him finished a week a go or so but he's needed an awful lot of instructions within the file. Let me know if any bits seem missing. I really hope you think he's worth the wait. These are the best pictures I could take of him, but Im not happy how they've turned out. IMO he looks a lot better in person.

The best way to build him is to build each module seperately, then stick them all togetehr like a sentinel shaped jigsaw puzzle. The one on the picture is using A4 paper (or thin card) so here's a look at him scaled to other models...



I really don't think the pictures do him, or especially the size of him much justice so make him yourself to see. Though if anyone actually has the ink to build a few with A3 paper stretched to fit, feel free to post pics.

He makes a nice companion to my other X-Men so far. I might build a second and put one on each side instead (I like phoenix as a centrepiece to them)



And as always... here's the link you've been waiting for so you can download and build him yourself to add to all your other models.

Download the Sentinel here

Sorry it's been QUITE so long since my last update. I'm still here, I'm still working too hard, but I'm still trying to fiT in making some more heroes into my hectic life. Hopefully my next update one will be sooner (already started on my next model).

Thanks for all sticking with me + hi to any new people out there.

As always, any comments are more than welcome and always help encourage me even more.
Enjoy building him!

Regards
Xavier

Eh, great to have some news !
This one is impressive. Sure, two of them will be perfect on each side.
Thank you for this work !

Hooray! Welcome back, Xavier! And the Sentinel really looks fantastic especially at its scale. Although I'm still (ah hem) partial to the Teddy and the Yeti models...

Air-G said...

Thank you Xavier you're my idol ;-). The Sentinel is awesome !
You don't speak about your Nightcrawler WIP anymore. Have you given up hope on this one ? He must be pretty hard given his strange signature stance(s).

After Hulk , Iron Man and Captain America , can u make THOR fore more Avengers ?

Xavier Gale-Sides said...

I've actually got a Thor WIP at the moment... the Movie version anyway. I might convert it to be wearing the Avengers suit though so I can work towards making a set.

Next model should be online over the weekend. For those who havent seen the preview at mypaperheroes.blogspot.com its anoterh non-X marvel hero... Quite a new one too, or rather an old one but.. err.. new.

Really glad you're all digging the sentinel though :)

(and yep.. really do need to finish nightcrawler sometime too. have far too many WIPs lol)

Where do I post my custom creations? Where do I get paper to make these (printer paper clearly doesn't work)? When will I stop asking questions that start with where? Answer all but the third please. Thanks for making the fold lines more clear in your newer models. Keep up the good work!

you can make an Onslaught papercraft, that would be VERY COOL

Friend. Thor made for the Avengers movie and have at least 4 of the 6 that come out?

I've got a good idea. Ultimate versions of the X-Men. I personally like the ultimate costumes. You should consider making these. That is, if you still are...

Air-G said...

Hi Xavier,
I just discovered you're Flash Thomphson Venom on your deviant art. I sooooo need to make this !! He's my favourite character of the moment and the model is just awesome.
Please please, will it soon be here ?

These are awesome. Just built Phoenix and Silver Surfer today. Would love a Galactus to go along with silver surfer that is the size of that Sentinel. So cool.
