Folded from 25cm square white kami, model stands ~10cm tall.
I recently learned from watching other models to make raised boxes from cross pleats on paper, and what better to solidify what I've learned than to design a model around it? I got the idea from my friend who, out of the blue, suggested I make a mech. I had a bunch of fun with the mechwarrior games in the past, so I decided to make one of my favorite mechs, the Mad Cat (My friend had a gundam in mind when he said "mech", but I prefer the design of the mechs in the Battletech universe). Now I have a cool little Mad Cat on my desk.
This model is a open-back model, meaning the back is just an open cavity. Methyl cellulose was necessary to hold shapes in several key areas: missile racks, the hip, knee joint, and the ankle.
