Darknut

For all you Zelda nuts here’s a Darknut from Twilight Princess! This is one of Ignatius’ many SSBB trophies which lacked a finished build until recently.

Darknuts are huge knights clad in head to toe with thick plate armour, equipped with a large round shield and massive sword. They’re as strong as they look, though rather slow. They tend to be one of my favourite enemies to fight because unlike many foes who can be dealt with after a flurry of quick sword blows, you really have to time your strikes and special moves to land any significant damage. When the plate armour has been stripped away they appear as masked warriors with a secondary layer of chain mail. Without all that armour they’re much more agile and aggressive, so watch out for those rapiers! Fighting one is well enough but the game has several places where you’re forced to fight up to four of them!

This is quite a formidable papercraft with many pieces and pages to work with, including both swords. The construction is interesting because the model is the Darknut’s chain mail appearance with the plates being built and added around this. 50cm tall (this includes the sword when held I think).

      It takes time to make instructions; first, someone who is good at building must want to build it. Second, they have to take pictures after every couple of pieces. What I’m trying to say is, instructions are not easy to make. But, there is an alternative. Use Pepakura Viewer to see a 3D view of the model and to see where the pieces go.
