Clear Paper Craft National Astronomical Observatory of Japan Telescope Craft Kit

I made a TMT paper craft, but it's hard to cut the paper, so I made a pre-cut kit. (By the way, the data is being distributed on the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan website .)

Not only TMT, but also Nobeyama 45m is a new design considering ease of construction. It may be interesting to compare it with published paper crafts. I want to make Subaru and Arma, but I haven't been able to do it.

Here is the assembly guide. It takes a lot of time to cut from the DL from the HP, but it is assumed that the pre-cut kit can be assembled in about an hour.

You can see how huge the TMT is when you put it next to the Nobeyama 45m radio telescope paper craft of the same scale (1/500). Put them both together and imagine a super-giant telescope built on the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii, higher than the summit of Mt. Fuji.
