I’ve been wondering if there’s a more consistent way to open these. Like a form letter. Or at least the same paragraph at the front. Oh well. These models are from Satoshi Kamiya’s second “Works” book, are all made from squares with 29.7 cm long edges, and are shown by The Yellow Bird model from his first “Works” book at the same scale to compare model size.
“Little Bird” is the sixth model in the book. While many of his models become 3D near the end, the 3D in this one is much more important to the model and comes up a bit earlier. A lot of the details must be developed while the model is already 3D, particularly the legs, so it’s a pretty interesting model to fold.
A Lyrebird is the following model. I mixed the blue-grey too dark, so, sorry if the details are hard to make out. It has the fancy tail, the two large side tail feathers, an open beak, wings that are a bit open, and tiny little feet. Mine appears to be doing the splits. Yeah, well, he has spirit, I suppose.
