Publisher Comments:

Pure origami is an ancient and elegant art, whereas making paper airplanes is often considered a relatively modern recreation. Origami focuses on beauty, while the performance of a paper airplane is usually its most important attribute. This clearly written, carefully illustrated how-to book combines the two activities to produce an up-to-date innovation: artfully constructed origami airplanes that actually fly.

The author first shows you how to construct the Jet Tail, an important basic feature that is needed for many of the more difficult models diagrammed later. This is followed by detailed, step-by-step directions and diagrams for creating each of 12 different models: space shuttle, futuristic shuttle, flying wing, delta wing-jet, fighter plane, interceptor, double tail fighter, dart plane, fighter plane with engines, futuristic fighter, and two different jets.

The projects progress in level of difficulty; as you master the simpler models you will be developing the skills you need to assemble the more complicated craft. The book also includes valuable suggestions about types of paper to use, useful hints that help ensure success, and solutions to common problems paperfolders may encounter.

Synopsis:

Create 12 different models that actually fly: space shuttle, futuristic shuttle, flying wing, delta-wing jet, fighter plane, interceptor, double tail fighter, dart plane, fighter plane with engines, futuristic fighter, and 2 different jets.

Synopsis:

Unique origami book presents illustrated instructions for folding 14 war machines: six jets, three missiles, and five ground vehicles. Models include spy plane, bomber, predator battle tank, guardian battle walker, and more.

Synopsis:

Origami enthusiasts with a particular interest in weaponry will appreciate this unique book, which presents instructions for folding fourteen war machines: six jets, three missiles, and five ground vehicles.

Illustrated in full color, the step-by-step directions show how to assemble the models. Origami aircraft include a spy plane, strike fighter, and bomber, plus impaler, javelin, and harpoon missiles that can be mounted on some of the jets. Models of ground vehicles include the predator battle tank and guardian battle walker.
