Merlin Falcon
Paper Model Kit from Paper Models International

This is a life size replica of a Merlin Falcon. These raptors have been used in falconry since the middle ages. Also known as a Pigeon Hawk, this small of prey can be found in North America, Europe and Asia. Merlins are migratory, spending the winter months in the southern reaches of their territories.

The model was a good challenge as the pieces were not die-cut. Each had to to be cut from its page and folded, scored and/or burnished before glueing in place. White glue is used for assembly. Paper models look best when the edges of the pieces are colored to match the rest of the printing. .
