Like all the models by Ninjatoes, this model is well designed, and the instructions are complete and easy to understand. This results in an enjoyable building experience. Because the model is relatively small, I used 80 gsm paper (120 gsm would also work).

I really enjoyed building this model. It is well designed and relatively simple to assemble. I would recommend building the head and the front of the body first, then the back of the body and then closing the model at the bottom of the body. This way you should have enough space to attach all the parts before closing the model, as well as hiding some imperfections that could result when closing the model.

Although the only "instructions" are some reference pictures taken during the building of the model, it's actually quite simple to assemble. The finished model also makes a great addition to any papercraft collection (or just to display it on its own).

This model is well designed and it turns out great if you just take your time while building it. I used 80 gsm paper (120 gsm paper would also work), which makes the small parts easier to assemble.

Comments:
This model is quite challenging (partly because it wasn't unfolded very well), but if you follow the instructions carefully you should be ok. Since this model is 37cm tall, I would recommend using 120 gsm paper to ensure that it is sturdy. If you want to improve the appearance of the finished model, you can print black blocks (created with graphics editing software like Paint) on the back of the pages over the wings and the fins at the side of Cell's head.
