MAGIKARP


129 / MAGIKARP - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Magikarp
Type: Water
Species: Fish Pokémon
Height: 0.9 m (2′11″)
Weight: 10.0 kg (22.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Although this Pokémon is capable of surviving in even the most polluted ponds, it is usually overlooked by trainers because it is pathetically weak: even in the heat of battle it will do nothing but flop around. It is not a strong swimmer, and currents in the water will sweep it downstream. It evolves into Gyarados starting at level 20.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 9.9 cm/ 3.9 in
Width: 10.9 cm/ 4.3 in
Depth: 11.4 cm/ 4.5 in
Pages: 2
Pieces: 41
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Brandon
NOTES: Build from the mouth, closing the front piece with the flat end. Build the back part from the tail fin to the mid section, once again closing with the flat piece. Take your time with the fins and it should be a fairly easy model.

Man......the downloads won't work. :( I love Magikarp.

Brandon said...

The downloads work just fine for me. What internet browser are you using? It may help to try Firefox.

I think something is wrong. I mean is just to pages but looks like it is incomplete..

Brandon said...

They're there, it's just that it's only 2 pages. If you can look at the pdo, you can see how all the parts make up the model. If not, you can build from the pdf and find out at the end :P All the pieces are there though.

If you want to do magikarp but the file wont download you could do the magikarp doll. Type it in on the search. It is almost the same but it has sowing lines. It is worth looking at it. And it's download actually works!

how do you attach the whiskers to the face?

Anonymous said...

oh, and how do you attach the fins?

PAPERPOKES said...

I'm not the one who built it, but I'm pretty sure they are just glued on...

Brandon said...

Yeah, the fins and whiskers are just glued. The fins you have to first build each orange part, folding the tabs outward (so you can attach the white pieces to them) and those are actually part of the body (Between 11 and 27). The whiskers glue to the outside though, after the body is built.

Is there anyway that you can make an Adobe Acrobat Document of this? That would help me a lot

Brandon said...

There's a pdf in the download pack.
