Stag beetleBy experimenting with the ways angles bisect and trisect each other on a folded square, I created a form of off-set frog base with soon evolved into one of my favourite insect bases. As well as creating six legs, a body and two antenna, it gives a small flap in the middle of the back that forms a simple thorax. This can be seen on the back of this model.
