…so if you found a magic lamp, rubbed it and a Genie appeared, granting you 3 wishes, what would you wish for?: It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty.
Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.
Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)

Every body needs a good engine house, a solid “ticker” and this rib cage assembly is a masterpiece in modular origami: Vertebrae lock with rib bones, these link into a sternum (breast bone) and provides linkages to neck, shoulders and lower back – genius. Made from 13 squares, 4 bird-base inspired vertebrae, tubular ribs and […]
It is wonderful when your hobby cheers you up, but there was an unexpected giggle when the first of these lovely arms came together: For the anatomists amongst us, you will notice a full set of phalanges, a nice wrist assembly, radius AND ulna, lovely boney elbow and a fabulous humerus.
When one looks at the symphony of bones and tendons that constitute human shoulders, one can only wonder why we then put it through contact sports like Rugby which so effortlessly re-arrange and break this complex calcium tangle: This is Boney McBoneface’s shoulder assembly, an amazing mix of a vertebrae, lovely pair of integrated shoulder […]
