Faceted Jungle Panther Trophy

Hello guys,

I started my first project after reading Krummey post about faceted trophies.

I found a free 3D model of a panther head, modified it a bit to ease the crafting.

I used blender (free 3D software) to modify the faceted model.

Please find the pattern for the panther head on my blog.

Tips for Crafting

Few tips I can share after 3 different trophies:

- use a paperknife to "pre-fold" parts.

- use a good glue, it will be way easier. I use 3M Scotch Gel Glue (green one), I guess you can find it worldwide.

- use a thick paper.I use 240g/m² and it works perfectly.

- assemble and glue the smallest part first, for the panther the mouth area is really hard to make!

- be patient! It's a long run to finish your trophy:)
