this book is very similiar to the karakuri book the begining is just information on paper animation and the begining is just mechnisms for you to use to create your own models and then it has some full animation kits in it.the first 9 models in the paper models that move book are just teaching you difrent mechnisms and how they create movment and the book gives you ideas of how to use these movments to create your own model but i didnt do any of those the last 6 are compleat animation kits and i just finished the third one.the first one is a pretty simple model and not very hard its calledhappy birthday and its just a stork carrying a baby that flaps its wings and moves back and forth.the seconed model is called ducks on the pond its a very nice looking model it just is a simple turntable that moves a set of ducks around in a circle and thrugh a little lilly turnel.the third model is the one that is the center picture on the cover its called pyrimid lifter this model has alot of little tube pieces and other little pieces that all join together to create the movment it takes a bit of time to do but like with all paper animation kits as long as you are prececise in your cutting of the pieces(the pieces are not pop out and all need to be cut out with scisors and you need an exacto knife to cut out the openings in some pieces)and glue everything accuratly then the movment will be accurate.just finished all the paper models the weight of buracay model is a bit tricky in some parts expecialy when glueing the cams to the inside wheels.also on mine the center tube that conects the handle to the movment on the inside got all twisted and ripped apart so the handle dosnt work but i can turn the inner wheel manualy and i do get the movment.
