In any competition one Sticks to the limit of the topic.Just have an animal attacking audrey..such as Fernando Gilgado gomez shark swallowing human which is in his Bicolour book .
Also we have few animals being fed or petted..Which the lord has witnessed.
Also the macho element is missing very few are folding shooting lions or rhinos but we know theres an illegal cull happening as we speak

The Osprey [Pandion haliaetus]is one of the largest fishing hawks in North America, and is sufficiently different in profile to the bald eagle to warrant a model of it's own. Though I have read it looks similar to a sea eagle. (As an aside, it is also a magnificent looking bird.) I have never discovered an Osprey model.

If anyone knows of one, I would love to see the completed model. I won't hold out hope for the instructions, of course.

Thank you!

There is one. Really good one too by (who else?) Quentin Trollip. Just google.
Nice too my topic revived after so much time. I do not even visit the forum anymore but I still got a notification for this.

Fairyfly, a very obscure (and tiny) type of wasp, folded and designed by me:

I have done several designs of animals that haven't been done yet, but they are of extinct creatures. Fairyflies are around today and I think they are very interesting.

For more information about the design, or if you can't see the image, here it is on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/156771525 ... ed-public/

EDIT: As for other haven't-been-done animals, I think the Birds of Paradise are a great challenge. They have many different shapes and potential color changes. There's around 40 different species, yet I have only ever seen 3 separate designs of any of them. 2 from Derek McGann and 1 from Katsuta Kyohei.

I think a lot of freshwater or brackish water fish have not been done, though there are many unique species among them. Many of these species provide opportunities for the use of colour changes
For example:
Sailfin Molly
Tosakin Goldfish (variety)
Neon/Cardinal tetra
Archer fish (shooting a stream of water)
Congo tetra
Harlequin Rasbora
Bumblebee goby
Killifishes
Fairy Cichilid
And so on and so forth...

And for those who like birds there is the Victoria Crested pigeon, the different species of parrots, and of course, the birds of paradise...

I believe Derek McGann has done a bird of paradise. If not him, then someone has....

I searched for an origami green lacewing and I can't find anything, I'm probably going to try and make one.

Looks like the glass frog hasn't been done either. Why am I not surprised...

What about a nyala? It's similar to a kudu but with stripes.

Forgive the bump, but the hoverfly genus Helophilus has some interesting markings.
