Interesting Facts: Moltres sheds embers with every flap of its wings, creating a brilliant flash of flames. By dipping itself into the magma of an active volcano, this Pokémon can heal itself. It migrates to the south with the coming of spring and is said to bring an early springtime to cold lands. There have been stories of Moltres using its wings to assist those lost in the mountains. Moltres is rarely seen. In the past, Sky Attack was its signature move.

NOTES: Build the model from the head and head flame downwards. When you get to the wings, build them and attach them to the body before moving on. When building the wings, build the entire yellow part first, folding the "feathery" edges to give it a slight sharpness and help support the fire/body. Then build the red part of the flame by gluing the white side of the paper together and trimming the excess white part off the model to your desire. If you're feeling fancy, you could even sort of feather the flame piece to give it a bit of definition too. Lastly, glue the red flames inside the yellow wing 'sleeve' and freehand glue them together. Work your way down until you get to the legs. Do NOT close the model with piece 69 until the model can stand by itself. Next, build the legs and tail flame (you can just simply attach this to the body whenever). When building the legs be very careful while building it. They are somewhat small and a toothpick or tweezers will help to make them. To get the model to stand by itself, wrap the wings around the body so that it prevents it from falling on itself. 

Also fun side note - noticed when making textures for this that Moltres occasionally has a red beak and legs instead of the pale apricot color. Textures are included for both.
