Balancing anatomical correctness with a refined design sensibility, these DIY insect Models by Assembli are as fun to put together as they are to admire once they're finished. The finely detailed rosalia beetle design includes a black cardboard beetle body and the shield, made of metallic paper.
Fun fact: These beetles make a chirping sound by scraping their rear legs and colored shields together.
About the Designer

Assembli likes to use the word ‘project’ rather than ‘product’ because they aim to involve the customer in the finishing process.
