For other questions regarding the Ancient dragon please read/post in the main topic:
And for the mods who haven't seen it yet: viewtopic.php?t=7987
Though this will be the only one of those CIT topics from my part.
Props again to Ragnorax for most of the pictures.
Step 40Ragnorax wrote:Well i hope these pictures help you... Not to discourage you or anything, but if you are already having trouble at step 38, then i cant imagine how you will be able to finish the dragon = you got over 200 more steps to go, and this isnt even a tricky part. Its 2 basic reverse folds, and then you open sink in step 40, and then you squash fold the center in step 42.
Also i hope you are using a sheet of at least 50cm or 20 inches square.
The description for the diagrams are very clear.
step 38 before
step 38 after
Step 46 & 47: [size]

@SpecialOrigami: The middle becomes "stuck" to one side of pleats, it gets pleated in step 52. So the answer to your question is "no" the other pleats do not get folded over it.
Here are some pictures that may help illustrate:
Step 57 side view (i circled showing that the middle gets pleated)
Picture of how the middle looks when u get to step 83 (see how the middle is "stuck" to the other layer when it gets pleated?)
Ragnorax wrote:You are pulling the layer apart so that you can collapse it the same way you did in step 52.
Maybe these pictures will help.
pull out the paper that is pleated...
Step 60 & 61 & 62 & 63
Ragnorax wrote:Well if you take a picture of your step 60 i can tell you if you did it correctly.
But heres my step 60
step 61 you fold down the top corner and squash the center of it
step 62 you just fold it back up and then for step 63 you just repeat on the other side's top corner
and it will look like this:
65 t/m 68

Hi, I'm on my personal challenge to bring life to a 14x14 cm Ancient Dragon, meanwhile, here are some pictures of step 66 I´ve posted on spanish Forum a whle ago. Hope they helps...
The idea is to lift a layer diagonally, to do this you use the diagonal fold to the right, lower the right up corner, down to the central line, altogether with the right edge from the first layer, which sinks diagonally, it forms a comet base in the right side.
now, to the left, the achordeon opens and you notes diagonals coming from the top of the diagonal up left running down left , they are three, first one borns on that top point; you must fold the second one, parallel to it, upper, in mountain fold (I point it with a little hand), a zig zag is formed:
the valley fold is on the third diagonal, but starts a little lower, so the strip below is a little longer
well, that's all for the moment. Good luck.

But in step 70 you are just reverse folding the top flap in the middle.
I hope these picture help:
Step 83 & 84 & 86
Ragnorax wrote:@federicoh For some reason that looks off to me It may be because the model is upside down in the picture or maybe the angle... That flap doesnt look right?... Are you having problems with latter steps because of this? because i think it may be ok... (i cant think right now XD)
Maybe these pictures will help reassure you if its correct or not
And after the first open sink heres step 86:
i think it will help you. I've marked sink area.
and then, sink the grey area:
should be "sunk", not "sunked". sorry about my english.
I hope it will help you
Step 127 & 128
That looks right to me... maybe these pictures will clear it up for you.
Then crease along indicated lines...
Step 185 & 186
Step 191 & 192
Step 200 & 204
Ragnorax wrote:@DaMaster Ok ill try my best to explain this...
At step 200 you have something like this...
Then it tells you to open up the first layer. What you need to do is undo one of the pleats of the claws (open it out), and then you will fold it back as indicated with mountain-valley lines.
Step 204: Once you open the first pleat and fold it back, do that for the rest of them. And you will have something like this... (2 views)
Then make series of inside-reverse folds to thin out the claws, and your claws should look like this: *Do this on the other four legs*
Maybe that makes more sense? Hope that helped
