Behold!
The Neko Mecho… Not one but, two!
Unlike it’s Patreonic predecessor (the Asteroid Hopper), Neko Mecho is a more advanced model. Not only utilizing the basic cut, fold and glue techniques, but also incorporating origami.
This is unique in that it creates pockets and folds that require no glue. A technique I’m certain will push paper craft to a higher level in design and enjoyment.
The design is also a step forward from Astroid Hopper; almost an evolution. It has a very defined profile and creates some interesting shapes. Especially the feet, legs and mouse pilot. The ears and side of the head are also a treat, as Alex chose to round them off, rather than straighten them up and glue them flush to the underlying edge.
The color palette is simple, void of artificial shading and… nice. While white is the dominant color, there is interesting play between green and red. It causes the eye to travel over the toy and finally settle on the one spot of yellow bell. Fantastic!
Unfortunately, the only design flaw are the black lines blend into the darker colors, making it difficult to know where to cut.
Over-all; while not for the novice, Neko Mecho is a good stepping stone from novice to master craftsman.

Finished cutting!
Neko Mecho teeters on the edge of easy and complex. Becoming very technical, especially about the darker colours and easier to cut around the outer edges.
There were a couple bits I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to clip, but time will tell…
Onward!
