Howl's Moving Castle Paper Project

I am a huge Miyazaki fan and recently had the pleasure of stumbling upon Ben Millett's video of building a paper model of Howl's Moving Castle. The video is 5 minutes long and represents 72 hours of labor over the course of 3 weeks — no small feat! Many of the parts actually move as they do in the film; the tongue sticks out, the cannons swivel, the pulley wheels turn. Unfortunately, the template Millett used is no longer available, but apparently sells a Japanese paper template book (DIY translation) if you are interesting in attempting this yourself. See Millett's final set on Flickr. [via PJ Lighthouse]
