Here is the design, based on this reference picture. I'm not sure how to model the mouth part in 3D, so this is what I have so far.
Here's the Pepakura stuff stuff. It's really a simple model, by which I mean the geometry is not tricky at all, but it'll probably still be kinda tedious to physically build the model.
For reasons unknown, I have decided to revisit this spiral kind of zipper-style glue tabs. I was thinking this pattern would force me to slow down and do just one glue tab at a time, thereby improving the build quality overall. Well, it turns out to be slow to cut out and slow to glue indeed, and it actually made my glue-tabbing less precise than had I not done it this way. So yeah, that was stupid.
Well, it's done now. There's nothing particularly difficult about the building of this model, but somehow I still did rather poorly by my standards and didn't micro the details as nigh-perfect as I would like. I blame the stupid glue tabs mentioned previously, which probably caused me to be rather impatient.
Anyway, front view. Here I have one of the eyes is rotated a bit different from in the .pdo file, which is obviously incorrect, but not incorrect enough for me to bother fixing it.
Sorry Candace, it's not a Bango-Ru.
