057 / PRIMEAPE - Pokémon Papercraft
Species: Pig Monkey Pokémon
Height: 1.0 m (3′03″)
Weight: 32.0 kg (70.5 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Primeape has a round body covered in whitish, messy fur. Primeape's ears are triangular with pink insides, its arms and legs are colored brown and the tail it had as a Mankey has dissappeared. Primeape has metal shackles on its wrists and ankles; this is probably indicative of a method of training with weights. The forepaws seem to resemble boxing gloves, alluding to its nature as a Fighting-type Pokémon.
THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 17.0 cm/ 6.7 in
Width: 22.0 cm/ 8.7 in
Depth: 12.6 cm/ 5.0 in
NOTES: Build from the face back, closing at the small flat piece of the back. Once that piece is glued, attach the final fur spike right on top, hiding the closing point. Then build the arms from the tip of the hand in, gluing to the body when complete. Same with the legs, from the foot up.
The hat is optional, but adds a bit for anyone who has seen the anime ep. If made, cut the brim to be circular, rather than how it is blocky now.
This model will not stand without weight or a base. Either try to counter balance it with weight in the left hand, use a base, or do what I did- use a string to create a hand hold, and hang it by the arm/hand from it. The small niche in the hand makes the last option easy.
