Paper airplanes never looked so good! A professional pilot and origami expert shows how to fold realistic replicas of nineteen different planes-ten of them airworthy, and nine for display. In addition, this book comes with a bonus CD-ROM that's loaded with photos, full-color "skins" for creating models with authentic markings and insignias, plus folding instructions for three additional models.
A private pilot and an ultra-light test pilot, author Elmer A. Norvell is a professional engineer who has served in the U.S. military for more than twenty-four years. His extensive experience informs the design of these realistic models, which range from sleek modern jets to Stukas, Spitfires, and Zeros. Other designs include the Concorde, F-16 Fighting Falcon, F-117 Nighthawk, and XB-70 Valkyrie. Airplane buffs, model makers, and origami enthusiasts alike will appreciate the easy-to-follow diagrams, clear instructions, and photographs of the finished planes in their full glory.
