Tested Builds: Japanese Papercraft, Part 4

Those infernal stairs to the model are finally done! It’s now time to assemble the actual chateau, which is a beautiful piece of papercraft engineering. The amount of detail put into the design of this kit is just amazing. To watch and follow along with the build, sign up for a Tested Premium Membership by clicking here.

  1. At 37:37 into the video, Joey made a boo boo. At that point, the video starts playing a portion of Part 3, with all of that staircase building already in progress.. 😉

  2. Tea, Earl Grey, hot…

    And you two are definitely right; I get to work, set down and check on my stuff, and then switch on two nutballs on the internet 🙂

  3. Oh by the way , these new embedded clips work great at being for Premium members only but if you decide to change the resolution to HD after getting very far into the video, it restarts and the struggle of finding your space plus having your computer catch up can be VERY annoying (I’ve been waiting about 0 mins now for my comp to catch up).

    If there’s a trick to this please let me know!

  4. I hope the last week of builds is just 5 hours of Joey doing hypertrophy weightlifting exercises.

  5. You wrote the exact comment I was about to write. Because it is EXACTLY what I do… are we secretly the same person…

  6. hey guys, just checked the video. looks like after the episode ends at 37 minutes (it was a short one because we had to make a phone call right after), a clip from day 3 got tacked on in the export. there’s nothing from day 4 that’s actually missing! checking to make sure that day 5 is all good.

    thanks for the heads up!

  7. I am drinking Coffee and eating pizza while I bang my head against the wall working with a rather annoying piece of accounting software..

    I think the site needs a donate to Joey’s Beer fund , link. He is definitely the un-shown hero of many a test video.

  8. the Parrott it’s because I’m from the future…

    3 hrs into the future on the Eastern Seaboard…

  9. I watch these while winding down for the evening, before bed. So . . . I’m flossing, not drinking anything.

    Also yes, “Which one of these is not like the others” is definitely old Sesame Street. And wasn’t it “Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away”?

  10. Ooh that infinite load time for skipping to a different part of the video just bit me. My flash player crashed, so I had to reload the page, and it really just won’t play for me anywhere but at the beginning. I’ve tried up-to-date versions of Firefox and Chrome (and even Internet Explorer) on Windows 7, if that helps the reproducing/debugging any.

  11. I hate Flash. Skipping ahead locks up the video. So if I can’t watch the entire thing in one sitting and remember where I left off, I cannot skip ahead.

    Also, can the video have a pop-out window option? That way I can make the window fairly large and not completely take up the entire screen I’m using.

    Norm, cleaning the applicator once in a while, changing the old, drying glue for new, fresh glue really helps glue-up.

    BTW, fortunately most of the kits that are out of stock are available on ebay for about the same price as the papercraft site. I have the Photo Shop on order for $11 plus $7 shipping from Japan. I saw the Spirited Away bath house on sale, too. Yeah, I won’t be buying that anytime, soon.
