Look for tutorials on Youtube. And I have a few pretty easy CPs on my Flickr, mostly box-pleated but a few 22.5deg.
After the fall, we rise.

Wow, that looks really nice. I had folded the phoenix with tissue foil once and it was sort of messy. Tracing paper really suits this model. I think I am going to re-fold it this way. By the way did you use a sort of glue or something to shape the legs or does the paper hold that nicely by itself?

Actually, I wet folded the legs. I dampened the legs by spraying water on it and held the legs together with a strong peg. However, I won't recommend it as the legs do not retain their shape after the peg is removed and they become somewhat "springy."
Don't use tissue foil, as the model will become messy. Use mulberry or tracing and use glue if necessary. :)

Wow! Really clean, can't wait to see the final result.
Do you combine sheets to get tracing paper that big?

I don’t think I’ve seen that clean of a fold of this model before. Great job! :)
I’m a young folder from the U.S. I love folding complex models and I’m beginning to design my own.

If you plan to fold it, make sure you have lots of patience and don't usually get frustrated easily, or else you'll end up screwing up the whole thing. If you get stuck at a molecule, take a break! (im serious)
Later, test fold the difficult molecule on a separate piece of paper to prevent crumpling on the original. That's how you will end up with a neat fold and your hard work will pay off!

Those are all great models! I have yet to fold the wasp and ryujin. Great job on those, though! Kamiya models are tough and you definitely succeeded :)
