Right well there’s a backlog of models which need posting at the moment so continuing with our contest entries, here’s DrNicholas’ model, a Tanooki Mario hako.
The Tanooki Suit is a power-up item that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES in 1988 and allows Mario or Luigi to turn into a statue at will or temporarily fly. The suit will soon be making a comeback in Super Mario 3D Land for the 3DS, which is why this model has some bonus classic 3D glasses!
Being a hako style model, this should be very simple to construct. The template is available as an image file above (click to enlarge).
