Step 4: Cut, Fold, Glue, Repeat...
The tedious part again. Except even more so as we have a lot of parts to make
Start building the TORSO first.
Find a starting point BUT do the neck hole LAST. Do NOT completely assemble the neck hole. Leave several tabs unglued all around the colar. Plan out your next two or three pieces and cut them out using scissors and exacto knife.
Use your ruler and pen to "dent" the paper along the fold lines. Typical models have solid lines as the cut lines, dotted lines as "mountain" folds, and dot-dash lines as "valley" folds. Sharp crisp folds makes for a good looking finished model. The best way to make sharp folds is to score the folds lines with a pen. Press Hard. After scoring the fold lines, fold the paper 90 degrees.
Find the matching numbers and glue the edges together, 1 goes with 1, 2 with 2, 3 with 3, ... 105 with 105, etc. The Tabs go on the inside of the model.
Some people like to cut out all the pieces first then start gluing. I like to keep the pieces on the sheet and only cut them out when I am ready for them. Easier to find that way.
Cut, score, fold, glue, cut, score, fold, glue, cut, score, fold.................
Lucky for us the torso, even tough it's larger than the helmet, has a lot less parts and is less intricate. Once complete (remember not to close the neck hole) try it on. The colar on the neck hole is meant to be small. Your head should fit through it if all the tabs were glued up. But we leave it unclued until we are sure of the size for easy on and off. The front should end just under your colar bone. The back should end just below where your rib cage ends.
Good fit? Great! use smidge bigger scale for the rest of the pieces. Print the rest of the pieces. Finish glueing the torso.
Too big or too small? adjust your scale and build the torso again.
