Scarab Beetle - Robert Lang

Postby davidinsect » April 9th, 2016, 4:38 pm


I'm really stuck on step 34. of the scarab beetle in Robert Lang's Origami Insects.

(Bring 2 layers in front of the upper point, and tuck them behind flap A, which is no longer trapped)

Any help? Video or pics?

You'll have two corners hidden inside the model, one on either side. They form a bird-base analog (from 32-33) that touches the uppermost point.
What you're essentially doing is closed-sinking the edges that run from the corners to the top point. You can use 47 as a reference for whether you did it correctly.
After the fall, we rise.
