RAYQUAZA


384 / RAYQUAZA - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Rayquaza
Type: Dragon / Flying
Species: High Sky Pokémon
Height: 7.0 m (23'00″)
Weight: 206.5 kg (455.2 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Rayquaza constantly flies around the globe in the ozone layer, stopping and descending only to land on the peak of the Sky Pillar to rest. It is extremely territorial and will attack any intruders of its home. Due to the fact that it can calm the other members of the Weather Trio, it can be seen to be considered a leader and calm.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 37.4 cm/14.7 in
Width: 26.1 cm/ 10.3 in
Depth: 24.1 cm/9.5 in
Pages: 8
Pieces: 130
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Brandon
NOTES: Many of the body pieces are quite repetitive, but when it comes to the arms and hands be sure to take your time and be very careful. These parts, along with the fins, are what constitute the difficulty. Other than that, all of the pieces of the body are numbered, so just match them up as you go and it is fairly straight forward. Also note that the fins are designated to the body piece by the numbers on the end of each body section. When attaching each fin, check that the curve of it lines up with the curve on the body. Each one goes to a specific place on the tube (Inside of the curve, outside). It is also suggested to leave one end of each body section open until all fins are attached, so that you can apply pressure from the inside.

Does it really matter how you position the arms? I don't see that they fit together like lock and key, more like you could put them together any way you wanted, if you wanted. Is that how they're designed?

Brandon said...

Nah, none of the parts really have a set position. You could glue the body segments at different angles, the arms at different angles, etc. The only thing that's really locked in place are the fins (they look best positioned evenly) and the head, since the head is pretty specific with its curve.

No Shiny pdo???? please make one!!!

Brandon said...

There's no shiny pdo because you can just reload the textures.
Just go to Settings: Texture Setting, and change the textures to the shiny.
