Follow the arrows exactly and don't forget to rotate the model 180°.

i'm not exactly clear on what you're supposed to do on steps 52-53. do you just sink that part of the pleat? there seems to be valley/mountain fold lines that are flush with the top fo the body that i can't make out, and simply sinking the pleat doesn't give me the appearance of the underside that you see in step 55.

bump. i notice some people have folded his successfully. i'm still having trouble making out what exactly you're supposed to do at 52-53. i notice you have to do it again later, sort of.

If you look at the position of the mountain folds in step 53 you can see this is giving the new outline to the sail, so anything outside of this needs to be pushed inside. From memory I creased this first and started sinking, then the other ceases from step 52 sort of fell into place (with a little persuasion!)

Of course thats just my interpretaion of the diagram, it might not be as Shuki intended.

thanks, aces21. i figured it out ~ 2 hrs after i made my post (after coming back to the model ~ 4 months later!). i think kato intended steps 52-53 to be a continuation of the previous steps of pulling out the pleats to form the sail.

I'm having trouble on step 28. I think it is because I messed up on step 27 with the open sink. Can someone elaborate on that open sink?

Welcome to the forum!

The sink is open, which means you have to unfold the flap behind and sink it too. These pictures should help you out a little bit with the sink:

From there, you need to make the two vertical creases and petal fold. Once the petal fold (step 28) is finished, the layers on the side will look like this:

Hope this helps! Have fun!

Thank you Oz, it did help. Though I'm still having troubles on other steps, and I also find it hard to read the diagram because it is so blurry.

Hello,

I am also having difficulty completing this model.

Currently I am stuck at step 56. Can't quite make out what the step is doing, mainly because the diagram is quite blurry. Looking ahead to step 57 does not help any.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks.

Hey,
If you're still working on the model I can take some photodiagrams of that step for you; if you can wait till this Thursday or Friday.

I'll start folding and picture taking now then. You see, I wasn't sure if you were still folding and I was kind of busy doing other things:)

Okay.

This is what the figure should look like after step 55.
Image
Start to pull on the corner creating a pyramid like shape.
Image
Like this. You are using the precrease in step 54.
Image
Repeat below and begin to flatten.

Done.
