How did you guys decide on Dustox for Father's Day? I figured you might pick a male-only species or a species with separate male and female "Formes".

They did have a reason for Dustox. Silcoon and Cascoon both evolve from Wurmple. Beautifly was for Mother's Day, and evolves from Silcoon. Dustox is Wurmple's other final form, and evolves from Cascoon. So Beautifly and Dustox are similar, just as Mother's Day and Father's Day are related. Get it?


Thanks for explaining that to me... -PMF

the model doesn't stand by himself does he? or does the wings support his upper body?

Brandon said...

Nope, it doesn't stand by itself. Hanging it from a string or fishing line would be one idea, or just lying it on its back.

i just placed a strong enough magnet within his body. loll. But thanks for the idea! :]

Oh wow, a magnet is a great idea! Defiantly going to try that.

As usual, great and fantastic craft!

For some reason when i try to open the file to print it, it says that i cant open it because it was damaged or something. . . is there another way to open the file and print it?
