This M.A.L.P. vehicle from Stargate, very detailed and with incredible textures, was made by Laul, a great French designer. You can see more Sci-Fi paper models in his page, to download for free.

M.A.L.P.s come in various configurations and equipment. For example, the original device used when the Earth gate was first activated ran on all-terrain treads, while the newer models used by Stargate Command run on six heavy-duty wheels. - www.gateworld.net
Stargate is a military science fiction franchise, initially conceived by Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin. The first film in the franchise was simply titled Stargate. It was originally released on October 28, 1994, by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Carolco, and became a hit, grossing nearly $200 million (USD) worldwide. Three years later, Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner created a television series titled Stargate SG-1 as a sequel for the film.
