What is your favourite type of model?
I like intermediate - complex models that are practical, have a wow factor and if it contains a action mechanism that is even better.

I'm with you Saj! Completely 8)

I also like to experiment with a fold I really like too. For instance, I've done quite a few of the Kawasaki Roses and have started painting them with acrylic paints. Using the creases on a rose I've unfolded, I use one color for the outside and another color for the inside of the petals. Very striking!!

Mostly human and humanoid figures. Just finding diagrams for these things is a challenge. :D

Apart from Takashi Hojyo and Neal Elias, I can't really think of anyone else who designs them well. Although there are masks and faces out there with amazing detail, somehow they just seem incomplete without the rest of the figure.

Wish I could Stuckie :cry:

I've been mentioning for awhile that I really want a digital camera or a scanner or SOMETHING, but nothing has fallen into my lap yet. :(

I slightly reluctantly took the "anything complex" option. (I wouldn't say that I like folding ANY complex model, as some of them look rather ugly and aren't worth the effort.)

Geometric folding would probably be my next favourite type (folds designed by Philip Shen, Chris Palmer, Jeff Beynon and people like that), followed by modulars.

I like oddities. Like the models Toilet, andf The Smile. Just as what Saj said, anything with a wow factor.
