Two other books of Montroll contain also a rhinoceros, both more detailed than
this one, but this rhinoceros is also very nice.
When made of the right paper, this little and no-so-hard model gives
quite nice results.
Once in a train, a girl seeing me folding this model was highly surprised that turtle meant anything more than one of the figures of a certain television series.
This is a very nice model - regardless of what kind of paper you use, the
model gets a nice three-dimensional shape. While folding takes some time,
it is not specifically complicated.
Excellent model. Not hard to fold, and a beautifull three-dimensional shape.
I have a second photo of the same model.
Starting with a 24 by 24 centimeters squares, the crab becomes quite small:
between 3 and 4 centimeters long and wide, but with eight legs, two pincers,
One should use a large piece of paper to start with; I used 33 by 33
centimeters. The result is very rewarding.
He looks adorable. Nice, with the white tooth and that flat tail.
gives this model a complexity of `Complex', but I think it is not too hard,
and would rank it as `Intermediate'.
This one looks as mean as a real crocodile.
This model, when made of the right paper, is quite impressive. I used here
somewhat stronger paper, colored yellow and gold, which gave a very nice
For another picture of this same model, look
In three of his books, Montroll has a model of a rhinoceros, each a little
different, but all three very nice.
One of the several elephants Montroll had in his books. Each has white tusks:
the inside of the paper is visible.
The head is somewhat difficult, and fortunately, this picture doesn't show
well that I didn't fold it well. It has a nice three dimensional shape, with
tail. Use paper that is black at one side and white at another side.
Beautifull horse. Montroll's original horse has one leg lifted up; I folded it
with all four legs to the ground.
