The MP5: Paper Gun Model Kit is a paper model construction set of the Machine Pistol 5, one of the most widely used automatic rifles worldwide.

f3bda5bf266b3d21a87ddba77bdc3b44The design of the MP5 is laid-out upon radical modularity, mirroring the new possibilities of industrial production and evolution of the computer era. On airports, in front of embassies and in police stop-and-search operations, the MP5 is candidly displayed, bestowing the weapon as a natural part of regulatory power. Like a torch, handcuffs or walkie-talkies, the MP5 has managed to establish itself as a perfectly normal, albeit absolutely lethal technical gadget of every-day-life.

The London-based multidisciplinary design studio PostlerFerguson, composed of Martin Postler and Ian Ferguson investigates the history, the aesthetics and the lethal seductiveness of weapons. In their model kits series, they free the weapons from their terrible capacity to injure and kill by deconstructing it into paper construction sets.
