Papercraft - Catbus by Jyxxie Papercraft - Catbus by Jyxxie
Catbus, or Nekobus/Nekobasu, from My Neighbor Totoro [Tonari no Totoro in japanese]. I watched this movie all the time when I was little, and it was always my favorite. I always loved Catbus.. but the only papercraft I found was a hako-level one, so I made a more detailed version.

Download here! www.zapotlanejo.info/paperpokes//HeathersGoodies/MiscModels/Catbus_by_POdragon.zip

Two sizes included.. a 20 cm and a 37 cm model, so you can build whichever you like! Two different 'destination' textures included.. Mei and Shichikokuyama [Hospital the girls' mother is at].

I watched the "My Neighbor Totoro" movie for the first time last night, and I am very impressed with your papercraft model of the magical mode of transportation.

I loved that movie, especially the emotionally gripping end with the search for Mei. A very beautiful movie indeed.

Brilliant model. I have a 3D printer and I'm wondering if you have a 3d file that I might attempt to print? Not sure if you can export STL or something similar, but if you can, and it works, I'd send you a copy.

I did the large one and intend to make the smaller version later this year too. so far this is the only picture I have, I'll take some more in the future and can give you links to them too if you want them.

it was a fun build, some things were a little tricky but mostly because I have kinda small hands, which is great for smaller builds, but the large one needs good distribution of pressure when glueing the taps and my fingers was a bit on the small side for the larger taps.

thank you for an awesome papercraft! ^_^

OMG it's AWESOME! easily one of my next builds!

also, I hope it's not rude to ask if you could make the bathhouse from spirited away? I'd love to build that but can't find any models so I'm asking you since I suck at making models. please help? I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one to love you for it! ^_^

(and I totally understand if you don't feel like it/have the time/other reasons, but since you made this beautiful thing I thought I at least should ask, hope it's ok I asked)

It's perfectly all right to ask. I'll have to decline though; my main interest is in animals and creatures. Digimon, Pokemon, Catbus.. see a pattern here? XD
I might get ambitious and do a human sometime for some rare occasion, but it's very unlikely.
I do wish you luck in your search!

I just completed this. Thanks for making this amazing template. It's so awesome. I've been looking for a detailed version of the Nekobasu to go with my Grey Totoro, Blue Totoro, & White Totoro. I've made the hako-level one for a friend, since it was the only papercraft version available for the longest time. I can't get over how insanely cool this is. Thanks again for posting this.
