Pegasus - Montroll

This is the Pegasus from John Montroll's Mythological Creatures and the Chinese Zodiac in Origami (1996). The paper I used to fold it was a little too small (15cm square) so the legs ended up with a very stubby, thick appearance. Still, the rest of it works out very well.

It's tough to design a model with two flaps large enough to make wings, without having too many layers in the body left over (which this model appears to have). Still, the thickness of the layers means that no shaping is needed to give the model a 3D appearance.
