I had hoped that the deer would get some positive feedback. But what really happened totally blew my mind. More than 100.000 views and more than 1.000 likes. Thank you so much!!

That's why I wanted to share an other template with you: The Moose I was talking about in the comments. Some folks asked if they could build that too.

To make it a little more educating, here the tale of me failing to build it. Not because the design is flawed, but because I used builders foam in an attempt to make it more stable.
So enjoy my "How NOT to do it" and my attempt to save the work I had put into it.

The template is attached to the last step, for those of you that can't wait... ;)

Step 1: What I had...

I got pretty far with my moose. The antlers were done, the neck and head. I even had both of them glued together.

But the antlers were too heavy. The head would dent in under the weight. So I had the great idea to use builders foam to stabilize everything by filling the head (at least the sides) with foam.
<p>done it<br>looks great<br>but it's kindda difficult on the antlers assembly because of the unfolding<br>i'm looking forward for more models like this,,,:)</p>
<p>can u email me the template at samanthageelal@rocketmail.com please</p>
<p>Whoohoo. You're the first to make one. Awesome!<br>Yes, the antlers are delicate, but they are, what makes the model so special. That's why I kept them more detailed.</p>
<p>i think it will be easier if it's been unfolded in order,,&amp; it's kinda tricky to close some parts (or it's just i printed printed this on A4)<br><br>i'm just not used to build one like this<br>&amp; i put a roll of thick paper inside the top of the head (inner side of the antlers to hold them straight) so they will not move around</p>
<p>Doing it in A4 does make it harder. The pieces are smaller than intended. And when I unfolded them I didn't know that I would be sharing the templates. The next one I'll do will me more &quot;userfriendly&quot;.</p>

<p>deberias poner toda la informacion siempre en cualquier de tus trabajos, casi no caigo en cuenta acerca de las formas de las lineas en este, sea valle o monta&ntilde;a, gracias muy interesante este papercraft</p>
<p>Did it on A4, looks amazing. For the head I used 160g paper and for the antlers 90g 'metallic' paper. It is sometimes difficult do bond pieces together when working with A4 paper, but the final size is just perfect and there are no problems with weight of the antlers. Good Project!</p>

I share it at that link : </p><p><a href="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13164187/bear.obj" rel="nofollow">https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13164187/bear....</a></p><p>Feel free to download and use it, but I would like to ask you if someone could help me to unfold it with Pepakura... I'm new to this soft, and I would like avoid so much folding etc... I'm pretty sure that we can make it out with a minimum au 3 different papercuts, and assemble it together. <br><br>If anyone of you are interested in that or as the answer to help me, please contact me at rv.marmillot@gmail.com<br><br>If it works, I will post some compete tutorial about it ;)<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Herv&eacute; from France</p>
