Modular folders will have a ball with this book - the train, complete with all train parts and a railway, will give you hours of folding and construction work. The result is stunning. Other older Kawasaki models reappear in this book, like the known Kawasaki rose (Origami For The Connoisseur version) with completely redone diagrams, that makes the folding sequence much clearer, and also supplied is a slight variation of the rose, to make the petals more "opened" (I prefer it this way).
The book is divided into 3 sections, and on the beginning there are beautiful full color photos of all the models. First comes the transportation section, including the train, a space shuttle, and houses and trees to complete the scenery. The second part is a natural scene, with a fox, roses and other plants, and the 3rd section is devoted to an underwater scene, with underwater critters and plants. The diagrams are 2-toned and of excellent quality, with some B&W photos of the steps scattered here and there to help.
