The next two Kamiya Works 2 models are both bugs but quite different from each other. Scaling is 27.9 cm an edge. I feel remiss when I don’t mention that.
First up is the Cicada Nymph. I didn’t think I’d enjoy folding this model much (mainly because it’s a cicada) but I probably had more fun with this than any other model in this book. It has lots of features, is very well proportioned, and looks great. It doesn’t make me want to find out more about cicadas, but I’ll probably make this model again sooner or later.
Our other bug is the Cyclommatus metallifer, a type of stag beetle. Were there a series of tiny beetle car crashes that eventually caused these beetles to adapt their mandibles into the Jaws of Life? No, that’s not how evolution works. Kamiya’s Cyclo-beetle-dude has the little spines on the inner jaws and the curve on the outer part of the jaws.
I just had a lot of bugs in the last one. Is having more bugs here good for a thematic connection, or is it annoying with the overbugging?
