T.I.E. Fighter by taerkitty T.I.E. Fighter by taerkitty
One sheet of paper, 8.5" x 17" for shell. A rolled wad of paper to keep the cockpit from collapsing on itself. That was the 2.5" x 17" leftover from the 11" x 17" sheet. Model measures roughly 4" in all three dimensions.

I love how the wings are (close to) real hexagons, how the inside face of each has the radial and perimeter support spars, and how the lateral arms have a bit of a base where they join the wings.

This one is a hard model for me. (Give some of the amazing models I've seen here, I know that 'hard' for me can easily be 'boring' for my betters.) The challenge is to get the point where the radial and perimeter support spars join from being so over-folded and stressed that the paper spontaneously tears.

I'll gladly post photos of each step, but I don't know how to accurately and clearly draw a vector diagram showing how to fold it. Perhaps someone can help once I've taken the step-by-step photos and posted them with annotations?

For its 'other half,' I created an origami X-Wing Fighter ([link]).
