Flying neptune beetleThis is about as complicated as bases go! Using a base similar to the tarantula below, two long flaps became the wings. The other flaps from the edge of the paper formed the legs and wing casing. The four horns all come from the centre of the paper. The model uses a technique I first tried with the Atlas beetle below, but I have refined the base to get much longer legs. Diagrams would take dozens of pages. However, I may produce a crease pattern at some point...
