How to make your very own Captain Britain

The deviantART web site is full of very talented artists, a lot of whom seem to enjoy drawing Captain Britain in various iterations from classic to steampunk. While pottering around the site recently I was taken not by the art for once but by a page that allowed the reader to make their very own Captain Britain in Cubeecraft form.

Just in case you are unsure what Cubeecraft is according to the Cubeecraft site it’s defined as:

” Cubeecraft (pronounced “kyoob-ee”) papercraft toys feature interlocking tabs for construction – eliminating the need for tape, glue or other messy adhesives. Each toy is designed to be printed on a standard piece of 8 1/2 X 11 A4 letter paper. Simply print, cut and fold your model into a cute and fun paper toy.”

Here is the Captain Britain Cubeecraft template I found on the site of Bob the Egg.

Looks great doesn’t it, even someone like me who is all fingers and thumbs when it comes to crafts could be tempted to give it a go.

Intrigued by the Cubeecraft find I delved deeper into deviantART and turned up this Captain Britain soft toy by Lackswit,Captain_Britain_by_LacksWit

and another Captain Britain soft toy by Yinza.

Not having a ” crafting ” bone in my body I’m always impressed by folk who can turn their hand to anything like these examples, and when they involve Captain Britain it’s a hard job not to email them and get a quote for a similar piece.
