FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.

>OP post was on 2021
Oh God

Yeah basically.
Around 15 years ago somebody was making racist music with a TTS program, and used the moon-headed mascot for an old McDonald's advertising campaign for the videos because he happened to be popular for memes on YTMND at the time. For whatever reason, the association stuck.

In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.

Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.

Stop it you're killing the pendulum clock thread
That thread is only on page 5. It still has a while before it gets bumped off. Besides that, who cares when it gets bumped off? Good riddance.
I just made the "Clean SST" and WOW it flies brilliantly. Magnificent glide ratio.

The original designs tend to fly better, since they weren't constrained by looking like something that already exists.
That being said, the concord appears to be just about the same as the clean SST, but with the wing slung lower. I haven't directly compared performance but it might be interesting.
If I remember correctly the circular wing canard flies really good too, as do the F-15 and F-22 models (though I may be thinking of A. Suzuki's versions).
The Trilinear series is pretty cool. The increased rigidity provided by the fuselage geometry is really useful when launching with a rubber band.

Are there any scans of these Fold 'n Fly models from the late 90s? I remember buying these at a museum back way back when I was a kid but I never had the foresight to scan and save the pages before I made them.

I wanted to share this, but didn’t want to make a new thread for it, this thread seems appropriate

I recently went to an anime con and this company was promoting their vtuber by giving out paper craft kits of her for free

This is my first paper craft since I was 12, now I want more
Nice dubs
They're medabots. At least the red one is
You are correct! The red one can be found here as well as a yellow one.

Here is another one


Greetings to all members of Papercraft & Origami. I'm seeking advice on the most effective method for precisely cutting a square from a large sheet of paper. Additionally, I'm interested in suggestions for adding color to my plain white sheet through painting techniques. Any insights or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance :)
I cant speak on coloring but a large cutting surface paired with a drywall square and a razor works perfectly for when i need to trim large paper
You could always paint digitally then print onto both sides of the paper, i would just use a ruler and an Xacto knife to make squares of the desired size.
I've always had issues getting a perfect square from a large sheet
folding a corner toward the edge like your picrel marks the square perfectly. Just cut along the superimposed edge. Dont fold to hard if the crease is undesired

Portrait of a generous person
I'm wondering what's so valuable about Origami Marine that no one shares it when there's someone willing to share it in Chinese 2024?
Yeah right, generosity. Did you open this book? Its full of missing pages and way too blurry.
Hoarders only hoard books, they don't open it nor do they fold anything.
Maybe it will be okay. Mien is full of the last 2 dragons because I'm so bored with solving the CP of these 2 dragons

>Most easy diagrams are too boring and done too quickly
>Most hard diagrams are impossible with most origami paper

Anybody have books or diagrams that require more than your basic origami skills, yet don't require very fine paper to complete? Some of the easier diagrams from amazing origami is what I'm looking for.

For information, it will be available on the 1st of June; pre-orders have started.
>For information, it will be available on the 1st of June
I already knew that. That's why I said it ain't out yet.
My bad. That information was more for others, I just quoted the 2 messages as it was related to the topic.
No problem.

REQUEST: Side-by-side classic shotgun

Are there any good weapon paper model makers that would either have a plan already made, links to some, or any help to making one?

I've been trying to find one for Quite A While now and have been attemptin to create One by first modeling it out etc. but hit a "bit" of a setback with my computer frying up completely during a thunderstorm.

Looking Now for the classic type of shotgun. Attempting to acquire the level of detail and possible function that are akin to the "Paper Manufacturing" brands level of quality.

That's the turtle one. Not the train guy from asdf
What is super cool is the savage model 24 It is and over under combination, one rifle barrel, on shotgun barrel
no double barreled shotgun, but found some guns.
Might be a help.
