Myriad Papercraft Links

I've been going through a number of manga lately that haven't really been worth writing reviews about (Kyou kara ore wa, Sidoh, Tough, Needless) and every so often I'll encounter one that has a 3D papercraft page included. (I was a little surprised to notice that the Merry ship from One Piece hadn't been included in the scanillations on Manga Fox.) I was planning on making the Iris Zero figure but the quality is lacking, and I don't have paper heavy enough to support such small pieces. Then I decided that I might as well compile a page of links to the websites I know about, and pretty soon things got out of hand. Below is what I collected before burning out.
