Models of Platonic & Archimedean Solids

Dear All

Finally, I am done… I had been working for the last three weeks over my birthday gift for myself! I have finally completed making the three-dimensional models of Platonic and Archimedean Solids. Yet again! Surely, those forty-fifty hours while I was making them paid off well. 
Although I had made these solids five years ago as well but the methodology and the type of paper used then was not the best way they could be. And I figured that out soon when I saw those models perishing. But of course, my past experience helped me a lot this time.
I got the nets of these solids printed out on 12”X18” photo paper and then used ‘half-cut’ method on paper to get the proper nets and hence the solids.

Good luck!
And yes, Happy Birthday to me J
