Looking for "Grouper" and a good Coelacanth diagram.

Postby CharlesWallace » June 1st, 2017, 4:10 pm

Greetings, all:

1) I am looking for a diagram for an excellent model I saw on Flickr for a "Grouper." The creator's name Takura Kasiwamura. Does anyone know if a published diagram exists?

2) The other, and more important question: I have seen one or two models for the stunning and remarkable "Coelacanth." (An ancient fish long though extinct until it turned up in fishing nets in the latter half of the last century!) I would be grateful for any information folks could provide on diagrams (should they exist)--the more detailed, the better--of this creature. It's possible the models I saw involved tessellations, but I am not certain. I've loved this mysterious-looking fish since I was a little boy, and am eager to try my skills at folding it.

Happy folding (and creasing and sinking and squashing) to all,
Charles Wallace

The Giant Grouper model is published in the 19th Tanteidan Convention booklet. Kakami Hitoshi has a Coelacanth model in the Tanteidan Magazine #112 however It's crease pattern only. There are a Couple of simpler Coelacanth models that have been diagrammed though. I suggest using Gilad Aharoni's website http://www.giladorigami.com/ to help search for models. It has a very nice database of models and their published locations.

I don't know about the grouper but I found a crease pattern for the coelacanth, with a tessellation for scales.
Here's the crease pattern: https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3007/2898 ... eb8b65.jpg
I'm guessing it will look like this: https://ericdorfman.files.wordpress.com ... _galen.jpg
Good luck!
