Name:
Aegislash
Type: Steel/Ghost
Species: Royal Sword Pokémon
Height: 1.7 m (5'07")
Weight: 53.0 kg (116.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Aegislash's body is comprised of a golden sword with the blade pointing downwards. The edge of the blade is white and somewhat serrated near the tip. Its single eye, which is purple with a white, linear pupil, sits where the blade meets the hilt, where it is surrounded by black coloration. The handle is thick at its base, tapers as it progresses to the end, and is striated. Two cloth-like arms emerge from the sides of the hilt. Each arm is primarily black and ends in lavender, transitioned by a slight whorl between the two colors. It carries an ornate shield in at least one of its arms.

NOTES: Follow the numbers, starting from the bottom of the blade going up. When connecting the shield to the body, you can choose to either glue the arms directly to the shield and then glue on the handle, or put a magnet in the shield and handle to hold them (impermanently) together that way too. Close at the top. Weight the base if you wish to use it.

BRAIXEN


654 / BRAIXEN - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Braixen
Type: Fire
Species: Fox Pokémon
Height: 1.0 m (3'03")
Weight: 14.5 kg (32.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Braixen is a bipedal, fox-like Pokémon. While the majority of its fur is yellow, it has black legs, white arms, face and neck, and a dark orange tail tip. The fur on its cheeks is longer, and a small mane of white fur covers its shoulders and chest. Long, wavy tufts of dark orange fur grow out of its large ears, and its eyes and small nose match this fur in color. Above its legs, the fur sweeps out to either side. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Braixen always keeps a stick in its tail, which it sets alight using its bushy tail fur. The flame from the lit twig is used for both attack and communication.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 17.8 cm/7.0 in
Width: 15.7 cm/6.2 in
Depth: 10.8 cm/3.6 in
No. of Pages: 4
No. of Pieces: 77
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon

NOTES: The model is composed of several parts: lower body, torso, arms, wand, and details of the body. The order you build is not important, but they must be assembled starting by joining the tail to the lower body, the torso to the lower body, arms to torso and the details and the wand at last. The lower body starts at the feet and it's built up. Be careful around the waist with all the spikes, it's one of the hardest parts of the model. I suggest folding the lines on these spikes, makes them easier to build. The tail is simple, start at the spikes at the bottom and close at the top, gluing the fur after it's built. Place the legs on a flat surface and glue the tail to it, using the pdo as reference. The torso starts at the head and it's built down. Closing it is the hardest part of the model, make sure to take your time there. It's necessary to reinforce the inside of the neck by gluing some pieces of scrap paper there, otherwise the head will fall. Also, there are optional teeth (not shown in the picture). The arms are simple, take your time at the fingers and you'll have no problem. The ear tufts can offer some trouble on the last piece if not folded on the spikes. Glue them to the head before gluing the wand. Proceed to gluing the details such as the spikes on the torso, close to the arms, the wand and the flame. I needed some weight, placed inside the tail for it to stand. Since all the pieces are separated, you have some choices regarding pose, such as the position of the arms and the rotation of the torso. The one shown in the picture is slightly different from the pdo one. If you use another pose that not the do's, be careful so the ear tuffs won't collapse with the flame and that it doesn't get too unstable.

The ears and tail can be quite heavy, so reinforcing from the inside with scrap paper glued to the place where they connect is highly recommended. The teeth are quite small, so tweezers are recommended, glue them as soon as the mouth is done.

VIVILLON


666 / VIVILLON - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Vivillon
Type: Bug/Flying
Species: Scale Pokémon
Height: 1.2 m (3'11")
Weight: 17.0 kg (37.5 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Vivillon is a butterfly-like Pokémon with wings that come in a large variety of patterns. Vivillon's thorax is an elliptical shape divided into three segments, each with a different shade of gray. Its legs are also elliptical which are black on the lower half and grayish on the upper half. Vivillon has two black, circular hands and no visible arms. It has a round, grayish head with large, black, pixelated eyes and a pair of skinny antenna. It can spread its scales to calm an opponent's fighting spirit, as shown in the anime. Its wings' pattern is affected by the climate in which it lives.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 28.7 cm/11.3 in
Width: 32.0 cm/ 12.6 in
Depth: 5.0 cm/2.0 in
No. of Pages: 5
No. of Pieces: 15
Level: Medium/Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS
NOTES: Start at the head and proceed to the body, both pretty simple to build. After the head is built, build the arms, legs and antennae, they're all tricky so take your time and use tweezers for the tabs. The antennae can be hard, specially when joining the top and the tubes.
The wings are pretty simple, glue the back to the front using a little bit of glue and glue small segments at a time to avoid wrinkles. Be sure to cut the wings curvy too, not exactly on the sharp edges.
 Start joining at the parts together by gluing the head to the torso. After that the wings to the body (note that the wings must be curved in order to fit), use a good glue at this point and the pictures as a reference for the curvature and the place to glue. After the model is built, gluing the appendages to the body will be simple.

The textures for the wings can be changed (default is Meadow), but you'll need the pdo for that. Savannah form is pictured.
