Overall Impression

This tiny book (you can fit it in a pocket!) contains diagrams for 10 dinosaurs for the more experienced folder. Some of them have been published elsewhere, but it's nice to have some of Takai's creations collected in one book. The models are all very nice, and quite appealing in shape - being a cartoonish, or stylized versions of the prehistoric animals. The book comes with 3 sheets of special thin paper, one of them with a crease-pattern for a Tyrannosaurus printed on it. Another interesting feature of the book are the photographic instructions for the first model, as well as standard diagrams.
