    So i'm giving a try at designing my first Papercraft : Bahamut, from the game Final Fantasy VIII.
    I know it's not the simpliest one for a first try at designing it but I just love this one...

    So i took a 3D model i found on the net for basis :

    So since on eof the most difficult part on the build would be the head i decided to make a big scale first. So the height would be 35 cm for a wideness of almost 70 cm

    Here's a preleminary unfold try that i'm going to rearrange and reorder :

    I know it's quite a mess for now ^^ but since i'm building several projects at the same time, i'll tak emy time to put some order in this ^^

    Now feel free to give me any advice that could be useful since i'm a total noob in this ^^

    Little update of the unfolding rearrangement of Bahamut.

    Wings are pretty much arranged (still seems to miss some flaps on them though...)

    There is already out there a FFVIII Bahamut model (i've seen it mentioned as "official" so i guess it was published by Square), but it's nowhere close to the detail this one seems to have.

    That is very good :)

    Yeah, I found another model but it was not very detailed and "beautyful", so i though why not make one myself :p
