THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 22.0 cm/8.7 in
Width: 24.5 cm/ 9.6 in
Depth: 36.6 cm/14.4 in
NOTES: This is by no means an easy craft. The pieces themselves are not too difficult, but fitting them together in the correct order is the trick. Start at the head and build the body to a point at which you can attach some of the blocks on top, then continue on stopping every so often to add more of the layered blocks. Close at the back, adding the tail fins on when closed. When layering the blocks, be sure to apply some pressure so that they fit snugly, and so that the last one does not hang over the edge. Line up the feet with each other before attaching. It is recommended to put some weight in the tail before closing.
Also, when doing the 'puzzle' for it's back, the order of the parts goes (from front to back) R1-B1-R2-B2-R4*-B3*-R3*-B4-R5-B5-R7*-B6*-R6*-B7-R8-B8-R9-B9-R10.
*=Stacked from bottom up. (First one listed is the bottom, middle is the center, last is the top) These do have to be in that exact order, as each piece is a different size.
