While I am on Uni holidays, I think I should probably make as many Paperpokés models as I can squeeze in, so here is the latest one.
To be honest with you guys, I really only played Pokémon Red/Blue (and then half of Silver/Gold), so I really am only familiar with the first generation and some of the second gen. This fifth gen just freaks me out - there is an ICE CREAM CONE pokémon!!!
Anyway, with my rant out of the way, I've been after Abra for ages - I think it's just so adorable, snoozing away. I am very grateful to POdragon [link] for whipping this up for me - I'm very spoiled Oh, and by the way, this is the shiny Abra texture that I built, the normal was so drab in comparison.
The only issue I can see others having when building this model are the fingers - they are a little fiddly - but that really is a minor detail, otherwise, it's a medium difficulty level build. I have no idea when this will be scheduled, but it'll probably be into the new year.
2011! That's the future! Where's my flying car already?
There's nothing too difficult about building it. It just has a few small parts, like the claws, that just you just need to be careful on. It might be a good idea to place a small weight inside between its legs or on its belly because the "feathers" on its back make it a little unbalanced.
Thanks to Brandon for editing/designing this and letting me build it.
I think this may be a first for me. I'm posting this the same day that I finished building it. Normally after I finish building it's usually a week, if not longer before I get around to taking any pictures.
Anyway, the most tricky part on Salamence is its head and especially the extensions on the sides. Once you get past the head there's nothing else to cause much trouble.
With the completion of Salamence the Bagon evolution line is now finished! Bagon:[link] Shelgon:[link]
