Tortoise by Nguyen Hung Cuong (Need Help Step 55 Plz)

Hey :D , hope everyone is doing well. I was wondering if I could get help with the tortoise model by Nguyen Hung Cuong (in Vog #2). I am currently stuck at step 55 and cannot get past the inside reverse folds that are needed. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I think it's easier to think of this as an inside swivel rather than an inside reverse-fold. Open the legs a little, and fold the edges to the middle on the lower layers. The other folds in this step have no reference point, so once that's in place, pinch in the crease on the upper layer so the proportions look about right, and flatten the central crease into place.

If that doesn't help, you may have done something wrong in a previous step-- post a picture and send me a pm to remind me to check up on this.

Thank you so much. I managed to figure it out and I am quite happy with the result. It's quite a beautiful model.

Cheers
