Surprisingly, yes. If patience is one of your skills, then go for it!

Those sculptures may look impressive, but they are designed with *motivated* beginners in mind and have been tested by true beginners. The process of assembly has been made intuitive to relax your brain so that you won't have to figure out what step you should be taking next.

The enclosed illustrated instructions make things even easier as they suggest where to start to glue each piece.

That said, I wouldn't recommend the shark or the wings as a debut model.
I would rather say adults and teens above 13, just to be safe.
■ Printer or your local print shop
■ A4 Paper (160-220 gsm) or US Letter (65 lb cover or 110 lb index like this one for example: https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2)
■ Cutting tool
■ Scoring tool (the dull side of a craft knife, dried out ball pen, etc.)
■ Ruler
■ White glue
■ Pin or nail
■ And obviously, a wall.
■■■ PAPER
Coloured or patterned A4 (160-220 g/m²) or US Letter (65 lb cover)

American friends, this kind of cardstock is fine (this is *not* an affiliate link): https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2

■■■ GLUE
Quick drying white glue! (mundane quick drying wood glue, or Aileen's, or Elmer's, or Mod Podge, an so on).
I wouldn't recommend: glue sticks nor transparent liquid glues.

Don't worry, all these recommendations are reminded in the instructions along with extra advice on how to glue properly.
Go to your local copy store with a thumb drive. They usually have a wide range of paper colours, and if you are lucky, various weights. They will print your template for you for next to nothing.

Ask 180 gsm (65 lb cover) in priority, then 160 gsm (110 lb index) if they don't have 180. (The tutorial is to be printed on regular office paper, or not to be printed at all)
I do, as long as *none* of the files have been downloaded.
The smiling foxes: https://www.etsy.com/listing/559469025 or

You don't have to buy the file several times, you can make several sculptures from the same file.
