  1. How do you connect the two parts of the torso? I managed it, but not without some gaps and sliding around.

    • You mean going from step 11 to step 12?

      I think the “trick” is to use the natural tension in the paper: fold the glueing tabs a bit outwards (instead of inwards), so when you put the two halves of the torso together, the glueing tabs will press themselves against the inside of the opposite half.

      It works better if you use thicker paper, because of course, it will have more tension in it.

      And of course, to be sure everything is glued together properly, you can use the “neck hole” to stick your finger (or the back end of a spoon, or some other tool) inside the model, to press against the glueing tabs from the inside, while pressing on the outside with your other hand.

      When the glue is still a bit wet, you can manipulate the parts a bit to get them to fit the best you can, before letting the glue dry.

      It can take a bit of practice to “feel” blindly inside where you need to apply pressure to the glueing tabs, but I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it soon enough! ;o)

      Have fun building!

  2. i have trouble with part 3 please help me

    • You’re probably thinking it’s more difficult than it looks. ;o)

      I uploaded an image with arrows connecting the edges and glueing tabs that need to be glued together here: link

      I think it’s easiest to connect the left arrow (in the image) together, and then the other part. Some folds need to be valleyfolded (not very sharp though), I tried to show which folds are the most important ones as well.

      I hope it helps, have fun building!
