394 / PRINPLUP - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Water
Species: Penguin Pokémon
Height: 0.79 m (2′07″)
Weight: 23.0 kg (50.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Prinplup is seemingly based on a macaroni penguin. It has yellow three-toed feet, its body is mostly light-blue and there are four button-like spots on its stomach. It apparently has claws hidden in the flesh of its wings because it can learn Metal Claw and Shadow Claw. Its wings also have the power to snap a tree trunk in two. It evolves from Piplup starting at level 16, and evolves into Empoleon starting at level 36.

Height: 18.5 cm/7.3 in
Width: 13.9 cm/ 5.5 in
Depth: 11.9 cm/4.7 in
No. of Pages: 4
No. of Pieces: 44
Level: Medium
Designer: PMF
Photo: Paperbuff
NOTES: This model isn't too hard, but it has alot of small parts - beak /feet... Start by building the feet and the legs/bottom-belly part. Then build the beak and the rest of the head, after which you should build the body and join each parts. Finally, you have 2 choices: you can build the wings right on the body starting from the shoulders to the tip or build the wings and glue them to the body - you might have some troubles glueing the wings to the body tho.

Mostly by using thinner paper (~32lb/120gsm) and edge coloring with colored pencils or the like. After cutting out the pieces, just find something to go over the white cut edge (I mentioned colored pencils because that's what I use, but it's not the only thing you could use).

K, thanx! I have to use cardstock because I couldn't find any 120gsm paper... (I live in a small town, i think the closest city big enough to have a costo/barnes&noble is about 2 hours and 15 min. away...) Small town huh?! :P
