This dragon is a little more complicated and takes more time to make. But it looks awesome and is a more solid model.

To make such a handsome man, we will need:

  • Many triangular modules (the amount of dragon will depend on their number);
  • glue.

Depending on what size you arewant to get a dragon, you need to prepare in advance some or other number of triangular modules. It's not at all important, you can make a dragon even from a dozen modules.

In our case, we make a dragon, a length of 30triangular workpieces. We stack the snake out of them so that its bends resemble the dragon's body. Such snakes need 3 pieces. They are glued together - so the dragon's body turns out solid and voluminous in appearance.

These figures can be later, when the gluefinally it will dry out and the model will become strong and strong, use in their games. For boys, a dragon is one of your favorite game characters. But even the girls will want to play with him, imagining that this evil dragon is guarding the princess imprisoned in the castle, which the brave knight is urgently to release.
