Knuckles - Head (+tipps) by Destro2k Knuckles - Head (+tipps) by Destro2k
ok, let's change that thing into something with more....more content in it :D

honestly i'm not a fan building the head as first
but this time i had to change a lot things here
in comparison to the other hedgehog models, where you have sharp and upwards lifted spikes, Knuckles has this allready known rasta spikes :D
what need a complete different build method
maybe you know what i mean
the head is not open until the end, so you have more or less build in two ways

first i started with thet eyebrows and the eyes

then i added the first pieces for the mouth and added the first two pieces what are under the spikes
(don't ask for the number yet, i'll add a footnote which one and edit thhis text when i'm done with the post processing)

after the face i build all the spikes and combined it with the face piece
sry that i have no progress shot here, it took all of my three thousand hands that the model doesn't collapse

all i can say is, that i designed the model in that way, that you have to combine the first spike to the face, then the second to the first, the third to the second and so on

if you have all seven spikes attached, you have to close the top of the head
the last piece of the top is inverted
that means, that there are only two tabs at the side what you have bend underneath the others (inside the head)

the next three photos show a little trick how to prevent open gaps at the head
i cut myself a few little pieces out like you can see on the photo
then i glued them into the head
worked very well to close this gaps and to prevent that the pieces are get ripped apart

then i added the rest of the head parts
be aware here, they are not really easy and you have to a lot of pieces quite blind

later i'll add (as always) some numbers to all pieces, so then you have just follow them

it's hard to explain why i build it this way this time
i thought really long how i could do it, but found always that way
one of the reasons was that i have a nice a clean build of the face and a maybe ugly face at the back and the inside of the head
if i would build it in the other direction it could be that the face will be messed up with a allready build head

but to reassure you
the head is here the hardest part from all ;)

Great Job! Did you use photo paper for it? It looks glossy :) How can you build a model with no folding lines do score it before folding?
