Type: Fire
Species: Fox Pokémon
Height: 1.0 m (3'03")
Weight: 14.5 kg (32.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Braixen is a bipedal, fox-like Pokémon. While the majority of its fur is yellow, it has black legs, white arms, face and neck, and a dark orange tail tip. The fur on its cheeks is longer, and a small mane of white fur covers its shoulders and chest. Long, wavy tufts of dark orange fur grow out of its large ears, and its eyes and small nose match this fur in color. Above its legs, the fur sweeps out to either side. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Braixen always keeps a stick in its tail, which it sets alight using its bushy tail fur. The flame from the lit twig is used for both attack and communication.

NOTES: The model is composed of several parts: lower body, torso, arms, wand, and details of the body. The order you build is not important, but they must be assembled starting by joining the tail to the lower body, the torso to the lower body, arms to torso and the details and the wand at last. The lower body starts at the feet and it's built up. Be careful around the waist with all the spikes, it's one of the hardest parts of the model. I suggest folding the lines on these spikes, makes them easier to build. The tail is simple, start at the spikes at the bottom and close at the top, gluing the fur after it's built. Place the legs on a flat surface and glue the tail to it, using the pdo as reference. The torso starts at the head and it's built down. Closing it is the hardest part of the model, make sure to take your time there. It's necessary to reinforce the inside of the neck by gluing some pieces of scrap paper there, otherwise the head will fall. Also, there are optional teeth (not shown in the picture). The arms are simple, take your time at the fingers and you'll have no problem. The ear tufts can offer some trouble on the last piece if not folded on the spikes. Glue them to the head before gluing the wand. Proceed to gluing the details such as the spikes on the torso, close to the arms, the wand and the flame. I needed some weight, placed inside the tail for it to stand. Since all the pieces are separated, you have some choices regarding pose, such as the position of the arms and the rotation of the torso. The one shown in the picture is slightly different from the pdo one. If you use another pose that not the do's, be careful so the ear tuffs won't collapse with the flame and that it doesn't get too unstable.
