AFT SG-A: The Puddle Jumper  
I took these pictures today especially for sgamadison to show her my Puddle Jumper Model. If you want to build one too, go to this page: http://www.paperaviation.de/PuddleJumper/puddlejumper.html

There you find a Free Download for a Zip file with all the pictures. Just let them print in the right size and glue it together. It then should look like this:

Toll gebastelt, das muss ich auch mal versuchen. So einen Jumper kann man bestimmt immer mal gebrauchen.

Du musst die Teile aber sehr groß ausdrucken lassen, damit sie in der richtigen Größe sind. Also definitiv größer als A3. Es gibt ja aber Firmen mit so großen Plottern, die machen das sicher gern für dich. Ich glaube, ich hatte die Vorlage ungefähr auf A0 vergrößert. Dann würden sie sich zwar immer noch die Köpfe anstoßen, aber noch größer wollte ich dann nicht.

Und man braucht ein zweites Paar Hände. Die schräge Vorder- und Hinterfront waren schwer einzukleben. Und halte Dich genau an die Reihenfolge, wie es beschrieben ist - ich hab es anders versucht und das ging gar nicht.

Bin schon gespannt auf Dein Ergebnis!

Ich finde es toll, was Fans so alles basteln und der Allgemeinheit zur Verfügung stellen. Ich hab auch einen Event Horizon für das Stargate.

Kein Problem, wir haben einen Plotter im Rathaus. Da hab ich aus Versehen mal ein Foto von meinem Chor auf A0 gedruckt, hat Ewigkeiten gedauert :D

Ah na dann! Dann bin ich mal gespannt auf das Ergebnis.

EEEE! I am so envious! That looks really fantastic! AND YOU HAVE THE WHOLE TEAM!

I'm just in awe here--thank you for sharing this!
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 05:47 am (UTC)
I only have the team once though, so I did not buy them in the offworld uniform. And I just realized I forgot to put the guns into John's and Rodney's holsters. Poor guys.

In addition I also have Weir and Sam and Keller and some of the Wraith.

You're very welcome! This is the first time I display the Jumper, as we never could come up with any good stories for it to use. It was about time.

Aww great Job. I really miss the old team together.
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Thank you!
I just wish they also had given us a Beckett figure. Instead we got Keller. What shall I do with a Keller figure? I only bought her because she came with a cool laptop and a piece for the Atlantis chair.

I wish they had made Beckett, too *pouts* I only bought her because my husband likes Jewel Stait! (And for the cool laptop, which I've given to Rodney!)
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 05:04 pm (UTC)
It's the same reason why I needed to make my own Owen figure for the Torchwood team: Apparently they think dead people don't need actionfigures. Which is so wrong! Many would have bought this. I'd also have loved a Janet *sigh*

That laptop is so awesome, especially since it can be opened and closed! Tosh is very happy about it too, I put a Torchwood sticker over the Atlantis sticker, heh. I can always remove it again though.

Oooh, I would have LOVED to have a Janet figure! *sigh*
Antjedieastra on June 29th, 2013 04:06 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure - had you seen the last promotion pictures of the Stargate figures that then did not get made? There was supposed to be a Black Ops Carter, a General Hammond, a Jack O'Neill in his blue Air Force dress uniform (thankfully I customized one myself, so I did not need this) and some Horus guard which looked really awesome.

But apparently no retailers bought them after the show got cancelled, as they feared nobody would buy them in the shops, so they never made them in the first place. It's a shame they started so late with the figures, they should have done some years ago.
tangotabbytangotabby on June 29th, 2013 04:17 pm (UTC)
I also saw a Ba'al figure sample that was supposed to have gotten made, but obviously didn't :-((( I would definitely have bought him ;-) I'm surprised they didn't do the Black Ops Carter since they had Black Ops Jack and Daniel. And Hammond.... I would have loved to have him, too.

I have considered doing some custom ones, but I can't bear to take apart the ones I have, and what do you do with the leftover bodies? ;-)
Antjedieastra on June 29th, 2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
Right, how could I have forgotten about the Ba'al! He was awesome. I also definitely would have bought him.

We also do have a Black Ops Teal'c, with hair and a shirt which shows his muscled bare arms. So all that is missing is Carter. Some have just painted a green Carter black, I suppose you can do that, but it's not the same.

I admit I have done more customs for the Doctor Who and Torchwood figures, which I can get quite cheap and lose off ebay. With figures so expensive like your Atlantis once, I would not dare either! As for my Jack in dress blues, I used the body of a Wesley from Buffy there, so all I had to do was putting the Jack head on it. Since the heads can be taken off quite easily, this is no big deal. And I don't use the Jack in the green base uniform (as opposite to the offworld uniform) much either. Here are some pictures of him:

That is amazing!!! I love all the detail you put in! I'm not sure I have the patience for that, at least not right now when I have so many other (house) projects to do :-)
Antjedieastra on June 29th, 2013 05:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I had a great guide though, who had the idea first, I just retraced his steps. And I need to be in the right mood when doing this. Not all days are good for it.

It's also totally possible that the Stargate figures are made of a harder material and therefore more difficult to change/cut than the Doctor Who/Torchwood figures. It feels to me like that anyway. The only thing I have done for Stargate was repainting the desert uniforms:


And I also made the ramp to the gate wider so that the MALP would fit onto it but for some reason I never posted them in here. I should change that.

Have you ever thought of recreating that the first episode from season five ?
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 09:36 pm (UTC)
To be honest, right now I have no idea what you are referring to. I have watched the Atlantis episodes only once, long ago, and never was such a huge fan like with SG-1 where I have the DVDs and watched them countless times.

What is so special about this scene? Enlighten me, please!

Heh - still doesn't ring a bell - I must have wiped it from my memory ;) But the picture is self-explaining indeed.

We once did the scene where Teal'c was bitten by the big bug and ended up in a cocoon. It's not the same but close enough: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/7256.html

And later we recreated the scene at the original shooting location in Vancouver: http://rdanderson.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=113090#113090

That is awesome!

Thank you! After a hiatus, I am slowly coming back to the Stargate world. I miss it.

I'm glad you're coming back to Stargate *grins*
owensheartowensheart on June 23rd, 2013 02:01 pm (UTC)
Wow that's really good.
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 05:26 pm (UTC)
I love that fans are so dedicated to create something and then give it to us for free!
tangotabbytangotabby on June 23rd, 2013 04:13 pm (UTC)
This is so cool!!! I will have to try to build a jumper, too (or persuade my husband to--he loves to build things!)
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 05:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I think you need to build it together. Because I needed a second pair of hands (I asked my father). I was not able to get the front and back glued in, it did not hold. We also added a bit in the inside, to make it more stable, which was not in the description.

The description is self explaining, there are pictures how and when to put which piece. Please follow it exactly, as I tried to do it in the wrong order, which also did not work. So I had to start again. Well worth the effort, though!

Now if I only could find someone to help me build that Replicator model...
sharp2799: Jack wordboxsharp2799 on June 23rd, 2013 04:18 pm (UTC)
This looks great! And you have the whole ring! I have pieces but I'm not willing to buy one right now.
Antjedieastra on June 23rd, 2013 05:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Wasn't easy to build it but worth the effort.
I am just lucky that I bought the figures for 15 Dollars each when they originally came out. I saw yesterday that there is a Rodney at ebay for 100 Dollar. No kidding. I just hope you can find the spare piece one day, if someone gives it away.
