Thank you ^_^ and the diagrams are from the book "Origami Skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex" by Yoshino Issei. Haha yes, it's a whole book dedicated to making just one model, so you can kinda imagine how long and time-consuming it is
I'm glad you found the book I'm looking forward to seeing your finished results if you decide to make it For my model, I used 4-inch squares to fold all the parts, and the finished model is about 12 inches long from head to tail, and about 6 inches tall (this is just an estimate, I don't have a ruler for exact measurements sorry )
ah, I'm going to start this project, so I started to read it a bit and: they mention that it's a good idee to wetfold the sheets, did you wetfold them? And what kind of paper did you use? just so I know, cause it looks like yours turned out perfectly they also mention that smaller than 6 inch paper can make it very hard to do some folds, so: is it really that hard? or did it go quit well with your 4 inch paper?
No I didn't wetfold it. I've never tried wetfolding before so I don't know what the finished result would look like, but I think it's not really necessary to do it. I used 60 gsm kraft paper, which is slightly thinner than normal printer paper. As for the size, I didn't have a lot of trouble making the folds, although some parts got a bit thick, particularly in the jaw section. But if you make precise folds then it shouldn't give you any problems. In order to see if you can make the model using small sheets, I suggest making the Lower Jaw, Tailbone 4 and Tailbone 5 first, since those are the 3 most complicated parts. If you can make those using small paper, then the rest of the model should go smoothly for you good luck! I'll try to help if you have any questions
ow, thanks for this awesome reply thanks for the tip on what sections to do first, it was my though to, I was scared that I would have made everything except one thing, and then just fail all the time :/ but now I know which ones to test first also: 60 gsm, I think I have some laying around, I though that normal sheets of 80 gsm would be to heavy and to thick, it seems that I'm right I just make it of papers between 4 and 6 inches, now I can start folding I'm first going to make one section out of 6 different kinds of colors and papers to look how good they fold and how nice it looks, it will probably take a long time, but I'll just work on it a bit everyday, or just every weekend, I think I know everything I should know now, thank you for answering all these questions
I only wanted it estimated so thanks, I think I'll use 5 inch paper then, that's really small, but I hope it will work, and thank you for all the help I'll try to remember to tell you when a picture of my model is uploaded, but it will be a long time, I'm planning to make it a month project but I'm already starting this Saturday
