STARAPTOR


398 / STARAPTOR - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Staraptor
Type: Normal/Flying
Species: Predator Pokémon
Height: 1.2 m (3'11")
Weight: 24.9 kg (54.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Staraptor is a grayish-brown, avian Pokémon similar to a large bird of prey. It has small, red eyes and a thin, yellow beak with a black tip. There is a circular white patch on its forehead, which is smaller on the female. Larger white markings cover the front of its throat and chest, separated by a black ruff encircling the shoulders. A red-tipped, black crest extends over its head, nearly reaching the tip of its beak.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 20.6 cm/8.1 in
Width: 18.5 cm/7.3 in
Depth: 30.2 cm/11.9 in
No. of Pages: 6
No. of Pieces: 56

Photo: LuIS
NOTES: The model is built in two main parts: head and body. Start the head at the top feather and work down. The body starts at the tail, which is pretty hard to build. Fold the indicated lines and take your time there. Remember do glue the legs and wings to the body BEFORE closing. Start the legs at the claws and work by numbers, reinforce them from the inside, the model is pretty heavy. The wings are built in segments, the instructions on the templates explain how they are supposed to be built. The model needs weight to stand. I create a pocked inside the body to counterbalance it, reference pictures and instructions are added on the pack and on the template. Add the weight inside and pop the head until it stands, when it does, close the body and glue the head to it. Further instructions added on the template.
