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.
Here's a little something to get things started. This is one of my favorite origami airplanes books out there: Origami Aircraft, by Jayson Merrill.These designs are pretty kick-ass, in my opinion, given how functional they are (namely, functional landing gear, moving canopies on certain models, and overall flightworthiness). Personally, my favorite design in this book is the Firebat, though I strongly recommend trying them all out.PROTIP: Use the thinnest paper you can find! I recommend tracing paper since it is the most lightweight and can give your models superior flight characteristics. Anything thicker will result in dense, stiff, and difficult-to-fold models. This especially applies on some of the more complex ones.
A bunch of neat designs
>>561933Ah, the Nakamura Lock. Simple if nothing else
Alright fellas, here's an archive of all paper models by Zio Prudenzio, lest they go offline like the rest of his website.I'm missing the Reggiane Re.2005, does anyone have it?And what about Raktapaksha-Trotskiy models? I asked in the old thread, but forgot to check again for replies on that and now I can't find it on any archives.https://mega.nz/#F!iXoEnAZa
>>562174That link is password protected, sorry about that. Here's a fixed version.https://mega.nz/#F!iXoEnAZa!1ODancibnddg6igQXddWUA
>>561868does anyone have a pdf of the plane from porco rosso, the Savoia S.21? I would really like to make it.
Canons free white wings, very good flying characteristics. Should be made of heavy paper.
>>561868I am just leaving this homepage here. I build already nearly all of these jets and they even can fly.http://ojimak.web.fc2.com/hanger.htmlIf it asks for a password, its "ojimak"
>>561868Origami jt that flies pretty wellhttps://imgur.com/gallery/N8JIF
>>564517Similar model with some clarifiation on the "jet fold"
>>561868plenty of paper plane stuff out there.
>>561869here's my attempt at the diamondback using paper that is way too small.
>>563220I would also really like to make this.
>>563709Some links are missing
>>561869the aurora one looks great but i am really confused with which crease indicates the place where i should outisde reverse fold and the picture is really low resolutioncould anyone show me how to 7th step please
>>563709Ok, anon. Based on this >>570275Is there an archive or something?I really wanted to do F-2A and MIG28
>>566856That's a big plane.
>>563709So I just did the first one. With scissors and glue stick. I am pretty sure I was not supposed to do it that way. It still flies, but it doesn't look that good and I have a feeling that it will eventually break. I also made a big mess of paper. So any suggestions on what I should use?
>>561868Anyone got WW1 flyable planes?
>>561868How old are we talking here?
>>57069817 November 2015
>>570441X-acto knife and pva.
>>570869Thank youAlso, I'm this anon>>570275>>570321If you go to the top of the page there is a link to an updated version of the site. u welcome
>>561933Is this loss?
Do helicopters count?
>>571690Not OP but it would be cool if they cool fly.
>>571690Got any helicopters?
>>571690Those are cute!
>>561868Paying respect to Zio Prudenzio
>>563709Hm, what is the best paper to use for these?
>>571690Alright, crazy idea here. If you could give it gyro-copter mechanics you could probably get it to fly forward a decent amount just like a paper airplane. For those who don't know, gyrocopters were these crazy half-plane half-helicopters that had a free spinning, unpowered rotor that used the natural air currents to spin and act as a sort of lifting force, while a propeller on the front pulled the plane froward.
>>574163I've always used 67lb to 80lb paper for the models
>>574215Yeah, but isn't the propeller motorized?
I'm curious, is there a branch of paper airplane making that has a high enough sensitivity for things like the weight of ink from a pen drawing on one wing to make a difference in how it flies? I can't make paper airplanes well myself because of poor fine motor control but they interest me to no end!
>>576885rubber band power maybe? would complicate things a bunch and that's really the sort of thing you'd see made in like balsa wood or something, but heay
>>576892Micro Ultralights.Remember even the weight of paint on a 36" model war-bird can reach 2lbs so aesthetics always makes a difference to the weight, and thus its flight characteristics.
I don't want this thread to die
>>574000> Zio Prudenzioliterally who
>>582125So, what the fuck does any of this shit you just posted have anything to do with this thread or this board, you dumb fuck idiot? Nobody gives a shit about the crap you posted.
There's this Italian guy with a youtube channel called Myguid0. He's made a LOT of pretty realistic original paper airplane designs, none of which require cutting or gluing to make. He gives you step by step tutorials on how to fold each of them. They're kinda meticulous to make, though, since you'll need a ruler and a pencil to measure out and mark the locations of folds, but the final products are definitely worth the effort IMO. His Su-47 design is my favorite, by far.They all require A4 sheets of paper to make, though, so I just trimmed off a sheet of letter paper to A4 proportions and scaled down each indicated measurement proportionally to make each plane.Unfortunately, his last video was made two years ago and he hasn't come back and uploaded to his channel since, which is a bit of a bummer since I would've loved to have seen more of his designs if he made them. Nonetheless, I highly recommend checking out his channel and his videos for some cool paper plane tutorials.

I remember back in 2016 there were lots of GPM modele Kartonowe links in Russia that can be downloaded and mainly is planes. Link?
>>576885I feel like you could maybe stick a phone vibrator motor and a coin battery in it without a whole lot of trouble.
>>582125Keep on topic you rap scallion.
This thread should have more interaction. Even for /po/ , this is surprisingly empty.
>>566856i'm mostly reading /tg/ and only come to /po/ once in a while for terrain papercraft - but seeing this miniature plane, i have a question: Could you use real origami models (just folds, no cuts or glue, so no papercraft) like that one as wargame minis? Would they be sturdy enough or would they get dirty/damaged/unfolded from normal handling during play?
>>584955They would die
>>563220>>563709It's been literal years and I'm still waiting for the Savoia S.21 to be "flight-ready" and posted on that website.
>>585103I had this in my stash. The original website is dead, but you can see it at https://web.archive.org/web/20000620224550/http://member.nifty.ne.jp/papermodel/htmls/Mymodel/Mod00j.html
Darrick Vanderwier. Is God
Same anon that's been bumping this thread for months so it doesn't die
>>561869My first try at one of these: the Bandit.Folded from 12in kami.I think it came out pretty good.
>>564518I have an old John Montrol book somewhere and I’ve never been able to figure out how the jet tail works in the context of the models. So I’ve had to avoid them or make rough approximations.I’ll have to post some of it.I found it as a pdf on the last thread I think.If I remember I’ll post some screenshots of it.Later.
>>582764I want to see this when I get home.
>>582763I tried to scale letter to A4 and failed miserably. I just can’t seem to even get that first waterbomb base to come out right. I don’t know if it’s supposed to close at the center or not.And the measurements just didn’t line up right even scaled down.
>>577848Really? I feel like that can’t possibly be right.I know the C5 Galaxy takes around a ton of paint and that thing is enormous.
aside from the two whitewings models posted in the thread, would anyone happen to have scans of the OG kits? if not I'd be tempted to buy some and scan them myself
>>561868Why the fuck is this thread still with the halloween theme?
>>561869Found a higher-res version of Origami Aircraft by Jayson Merrill
>>586703It's so slow even the themes take time to catch up kek.
>>561868Needs more fueling.
>>561868>ctrl+f>JAXA>'no match'for shame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Yoo0oYFwIc
>>585824I got some actual A4 and I’m gonna try again. But I still don’t understand how those are supposed to line up. They require folding in conflicting directions.
>>589925Well fuck me. I just opened up my A4 only to learn that it’s actually heavy duty card stock drawing paper.I can’t win in this country.
>>589975Well, I found one I could do with letter paper. The F4. Not too interesting, but it’s a start.
It's a shame that this thread never gets updated
>>589982Looks great, Anon! I tried making his A-10 model but the final product came out really wonky. The fuselage was way too narrow and the engines came out lopsided, even though I followed the dimensions to the letter. Guess I gotta try again.
Biplane supremacy, get these filthy monoplanes out of here.http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/models/Aircraft/Boeing-40.html
>>561869The designs are really neat, but i got kinda stuck on step 19 of the switchblade, can anyone show me how to do that one?
>>561933very hard to beat this onewhos got a good cylinder plane design?
>>585726can't seem to get steps 15 to 16 right. Mind if you show me anon?
>>597154I’m going to have to figure out how to fold another one since I lost the one I did, but if I can figure it out I’d be happy to.
>>597154Sorry for the wait. I finally got around to it.Basically you make a squash fold, but the paper becomes a 3D pyramid shape so you have to some how cold over the top of the pyramid so the whole thing lays flat. Then repeat on the other side.
>>597307Sorry, I can’t do a thing about pictures displaying the wrong orientation.
>>597308I can’t change the orientation if it’s already portrait.Anyway, this is step 14-16 completed.I accidentally ripped a bit of the squash on the right wing, but iirc it shouldn’t matter.
>>597309And the finished plane.
Just finished making the Phoenix.If course I’m doing it out of copy paper so it doesn’t fly work a damn cause it’s too heavy. But it’s pretty.
>>597312pretty cool anon
Anyine have more cool papaer airplane books on this?
>>596863cute plane bro
>>599641I had one as a kid. It was a silver or bluish book of 10 planes; I'd say they were moderate difficulty. Newbie-friendly to be sure, but not the basic dart airplane shape levels of simple. Like, 4/10 difficulty. It was for kids. Had some fun little gimmick designs like taping a penny to the nose of a plane to make it faster or folding the wingtips in opposite directions so the thing would do corkscrews.I don't remember the name or the author, but I do remember some of the plane names. There was the Twister, the Sky Coaster, and the Cloud Chaser, to name a few. Maybe that'll help lead you to find it...?>t. guy who got lost on the way to /pol/
>>599641Had this one as a kid
I did some models yesterday, was pretty fun. Funnily the "worst" design was the best one flying with two paperclips on its nose for the right stability.
Does anyone have the John Collins book of Paper Airplanes? Called "The World Record Paper Airplane and International Award Winning Designs: The Best of John M. Collins and More Paper Airplane Book"He has some designs on youtube but I want a visual step by step on them.
>>604686Yes. In a world with almost 8 billion people, including the author himself, the answer to "does anybody have it" is definetly a YES. All in a days work. I am off *Capitan obvious flies away
>>589982this is my favorite plane of all times, nice work anon
>>585967Here are 12 of 15 from a kit that was sold by eddie Bauer, the other three were already used. Im pretty sure all the designs come from the original kits.
I don't think anyone even knows about it, but I'll try: does anyone have the book Paper Pilot: The Paper Airplane Pilot's Manual? I have the physical copy but I'm missing the spitfire. If anyone is interested I can scan some, just ask. Such a cool book: cool airplanes that fly well so long as you add ballast correctly (takes a bit of knowledge that I've lost I think). Thanks in advance for reading this
>>605878I just got a bought a copy that has everything but the spitfire sorry. Although not the same i do have pic related that has paper planes similar to whitewings but imo look and fly better. I've gotten so obsessed with paper planes on such a retarded level its fucking unreal.
>>584057Here's a Russian site with loads of planes and a lot of other stuff as well.https://only-paper.ru/load/aviacija_iz_bumagi/raznye_samolety_iz_bumagi/210-2
any general building tips for airplanes? some of mine just do a downward arc backward and don't fly forward.
I think I just found the holy grail of this thread, here is just a sample of a whitewings unreleased folding wing design, will post more if there is intrest
>>607485 Holy shit this looks amazing! Could you please share a scan of this, i had no idea something like this existed.
>>607498sorry for the mediocre scans, its the best I can do.I got 5 whole books on these, seem to be out of production for the most part, everything seems to be from Dr. Ninomiya, but there is zero mention of him throughout the books.
>>607517here are the translated instructions
>>571589No, it's Patrick XDDDDDD
>>566856he's a cute little plane. yess he is.
Anyone remember Trotskiy Studios paper models? They were beautifully detailed flying models. The artist was a little eccentric and would only allow one particular model to be downloaded for a few days. You had to keep visiting to be able download others. It took a really long time to get the collection I have. He ultimately took down his site around 2011, briefly popped up on another site, then disappeared forever, afaik. I'd upload a model but I am getting an error. I guess I have to figure out what is going on (I'm a newfag).
>>608282Sounds very interesting anon. You can also use sites like mega as an alternative to share files if you want
>>608285Thanks for the tip, Anon. Hopefully this works.This is my whole collection of models from this Japanese artist. There is a password on each file that the artist set. I could have written a script to remove it but I guess I never got around to it.The password is trotskiy.I hope other Anons enjoy these models as much as I do. I would hate for them to just disappear from history which is why I am sharing them. If anyone has Trotskiy models not in this collection, please post them.https://megafile.cc/36bK/trotskiy-studiostar.gz
>>608296, NO FUNCIONA
>>561868I wonder if /po/ has gotten even slowersomething lasting from 2015-2018 was notable but now here we have this thread almost reaching 5 years and it's only the 7th oldest thread on the board...

Please send the Trotskiy link again. It's not working
