I first saw this model at the Meenakshi Mukerji's gallery and it didn't impress me much. But few days ago I was surfing Flickr and I found this amazing model made by Déli, and I did absolutely fall for it. 30 units, paper size 7,5*7,5cm - about 15 cm in diameter. Easy to fold, all units are joined with glue.
This model was published in Origami Tanteidan Magazine 102. Here is the diagram: Like other models by Miyuki Kawamura, the units are very easy to fold. This one was not easy to assemble. But actually it's possible... and of course, I used some glue to join them together!
30 units, dodecahedral shape (point: 3 units, hole: 5 units). Paper size 7,0*7,0 cm, about 12 cm in diameter.
The author's model looks like this:
but I decided to increase a little the angle (step 4) to get a more solid shape:
This was another attempt to understand the logic of Miyuki Kawamura's models. It don't come easy for me. They are very beautiful, interesting, and the modules are easy to fold, but getting them together is beyond my understanding! This one was joined with glue and the process was insanely long... Maybe there's an easier way to go but I don´t get it!
In general, I like making this model. The only inconvenience is that you have to use some glue to join 30 pieces. Paper size as usual 7,5*7,5 cm. You can find a tutorial here, and a video instruction here.
This little one consists of 6 modules entirely on glue.
