934: Mikiller觅晨’s Modular Dragon

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2018 in dinosaur, fantasy |

Assignment time at school is fairly boring, for the most part, for a teacher. Students have lots to do, you need to be available to help on demand but there is a fair bit of sitting around waiting to be needed: I had found a bunch of PDF’s explaining briefly how to fold parts of […]

932: Clever Girl

Posted by wonko on August 2, 2018 in dinosaur |

In a classic scene from the first Jurassic Park movie, a hunter realises he has just been surrounded by hungry, angry velociraptors, and utters the words “clever girl” before being ripped to shreds: This delightful mode is really simple to fold, and belongs to that stable of models whose proportions are perfect, detail is sufficient, […]

925: Crouching Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 10, 2018 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

Origami dragons and wyverns seem to be a bit of a “holy grail”, with the more complex gaining almost mythic reputations for breaking folders spirits when they attempt them: I came upon the diagrams for this charming model shared on fakebook, and it took a moment to hunt down the designer – Shaku on Flickr.

Triceratops

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in dinosaur |

EDIT: as a kind reader pointed out, I have already folded this model, so it cannot count as one of the current 365. It is a relief on 2 fronts (1) Someone is reading and (2) This fold of this model is vastly superior to the original Some call me a dinosaur, they may be […]

836: (286/365) Pteranodon

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

I for one think collectors of fossils need to be really careful piecing together extinct animals from scant remains. Many a time illogical collections of bones have been cobbled together to bamboozle the public and, at first glance, a Pteranodon seems about illogical as a platypus.

PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.

812: (262/365) Tiny T-Rex

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

This rather adorable tiny dino is designed cleverly by Eduardo Clemente: I am so impressed with the body morphology of this model, position and proportion of limbs seems really well considered.

759: (209/365) Takashi Hojyo’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

Leafing through the Tanteidan Convention book #5, I came across an early Dragon design by Takashi Hojyo: This model is a modular – 3 parts (head/tail, body/legs and lovely wings) made from the same sized square, it needs glue (shhhh, I used a couple of nubs of double-sided tape) to keep it together but has a […]

742: (192/365) Chicken or the Egg

Posted by wonko on July 11, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

The age old questions, “what came first, the chicken or the egg” can be best answered with available fossil records as Dinosaurs came first: Waterproof eggs, such a step forward, liberating egg laying critters from having to deposit precious and defenceless young in pools, streams or wet places and allowed full colonisation of the land.

736: (186/365) Stoopid Monkey!

Posted by wonko on July 5, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, creepy crawly, crustacean, dinosaur, fish, humanoid, mammal, reptile |

Australian politicians are a weird lot. Not “American” (shoot first then barbeque something) weird, just an odd lurch from crisis to crisis and stab your mate in the back for a shot at leadership kind of weird: A recently deposed Prime Minister (Mr Tony Abott) is being a bit of an arse clown in the […]
