The idea for this model has been in my head for several years, but I have only recently come up with a design that I liked.  This ended up being far more difficult to fold than I had originally thought it would be, and I have been working on it off and on for three months.  The fact that this was the most difficult and frustrating design to fold that I have come up with to date (I am surprised that I am not cross-eyed after collapsing the base) just made it even more satisfying to finish.
