Advanced paperfolders looking for even greater challenges will find them in this carefully illustrated book. Clear instructions and step-by-step diagrams show how to construct origami aircraft that actually fly! Sixteen models — all made from square sheets of paper — are fully functional. The planes soar, landing gear retracts, cockpits open and shut, and cannons swivel.
Experienced folders as well as enthusiastic beginners will enjoy tackling the Bandit, Shadow, Firestorm, Thunderhead, Cyclone, and twelve other sleek aircraft. A brief introduction provides valuable suggestions about types of paper to use. Also included: directions for general folding techniques and a table of folding symbols.
