Longhorn Beetle

If you like box pleating, this is the model for you. This is all box pleating. A good half the paper is devoted to the antennae of the beetle. The head never quite comes out right when I fold this. If I had thinner paper to use it might be a better result. This model universally creeps out everyone I've shown it to (including me, to some degree.)
