Raichu is a collaboration between me and Brandon. And yes, the tail was a pain in the ass ... no pun intended!
It took me almost as long to build just the tail as it did the head! Because of the extraordinary length, each attached section needed to be really dry before the next piece was inserted. And then, I cured overnight, balanced on it's face and tail-tip! But the result is really worth the patience.
And once again, I cannot reiterate how important it is to use REALLY good glue and decent paper (no less than 120gsm).
This one should be fairly straight forward model to build, but there are a couple of tricky bits - the ear curl and the tail.
As a warning, these two sections will be placed on their own separate sheets on the template - just in case of construction mistakes - that way you can re-print just those parts. This does mean that there is a lot of blank "wasted" paper, but remember, paper is cheaper than printer ink!
This one will be published shortly - as soon as all the Pokédolls are posted on our blog [link]
