TORTERRA

389 / TORTERRA - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Torterra
Type: Grass / Ground
Species: Continent Pokémon
Height: 2.2 m (7′03″)
Weight: 310.0 kg (683.4 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Torterra is the heaviest of all the final evolved starters, and the second tallest, coming in only behind Feraligatr. Despite their great size, these Pokémon are peaceful in nature and enjoy being with others of their own kind, preferring to bask in sunlight as they do not like to fight. When immobile, they look as if they are part of the ground upon which they rest, not as though they were a sleeping Pokémon. It evolves from Grotle starting at level 32. It is the final form of Turtwig.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 26.6 cm/10.4 in
Width: 20.0 cm/ 7.8 in
Depth: 34.1 cm/13.4 in
No. of Pages: 18
No. of Pieces: 107
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon and PMF
Photo: PMF
NOTES: Torterra is pretty big and is built in 3 parts: Body, Shell, Tree. It is recommended to glue the trunk of the tree on the shell before closing the shell, it will be really easier to glue correctly. On the PDO, the first 6 pages are for the shell/trunk; start by building the top and close on the bottom. No real need to close it perfectly, the bottom will be hidden in the end.
Then the middle part (7 next pages) are for the body; start by building the head, then the body, the upper body and finally insert the legs. Let dry and glue the shell over the body.
You should still have 4 pages of green pieces which are for the tree leaves. There's 3 parts which you'll then have to glue on the tree by finding a way to keep 'em still while they dry. It's a really hard model so if you made it up to the leaves, I'm sure you'll find a way :P

Yeah, the tree is really hard to figure out if you're not using the PDO in Pepakura Viewer.

I'll try to make some helping tips soon.
