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.

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.

So 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?

Hm, what is the best paper to use for these?
>>
>>571690
Alright, 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.
>>
>>574163
I've always used 67lb to 80lb paper for the models
>>
>>574215
Yeah, 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!

Micro 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.

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.

>>566856
i'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?

I 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.

I 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.

>>577848
Really? 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.

Looks 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.

>>
>>597154
Sorry 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.
>>
>>597306
In progress
>>
>>597307
Sorry, I can’t do a thing about pictures displaying the wrong orientation.
>>
>>597308
I 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.
>>
>>597309
And 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.

Anyine have more cool papaer airplane books on this?

cute plane bro
>>
>>599641
I 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...?
