Toys that fly and the magical fascination of mythical monsters make this collection of cut and assemble dragons doubly appealing. Papercraft expert David Kawami has created eight colorful beasts — complete with scales, batlike wings, and ferocious stares — that beginning as well as advanced model builders can easily construct and set into motion.
By following simple step-by-step instructions and explanatory diagrams even the most inexperienced hands can fashion imaginative and delightfully harmless creatures such as the sky blue Draconis zephyr — otherwise known as Windy. Or, bring a bright green Woody (Draconis sylva) to life — along with such scaly companions as Sunny, Stormy, and four other legendary creatures out of the past.
Simply cut out each wing and body structure, fold and score along broken lines with a straightedge and glue the parts together. Only a few common household items are needed: scissors, paper clips, a sharp knife, and toothpicks or a fine brush for applying glue.
Designed not only for flying, these serpentlike monsters of mythology also make eye-catching decorations and whimsical mobiles. Paper engineers, dragon lovers as well as youngsters of all ages can look forward to hours of fun-filled entertainment with this easily affordable collection.
