814: (264/365) Complementary Modular Octahedron

Having recently realised I had forgotten to re-subscribe to JOAS, I hurriedly did so then went on holidays, fully expecting the back-issues of Tanteidan to not arrive for weeks:

Due to the miracles of Australia post (or was that Japanese post and a courier?) they arrived while I was away, fortunately kept dry in my mailbox. 

This is the first in a series of modulars designed by Jun Maekawa from one of the mags, 2 parts that slide together to form a rather satisfying is slightly snub octahedron.

There are others in this series I will leave for another time. Happy with this as a first fold however – with opalescent paper this would look like a faceted gem I think.
