Michael LaFosse's Origami Airplanes
Make the best paper airplanes around with this easy-to-follow origami book. No scissors, tape or glue required!
Enthralled with origami from a young age, world-renowned origami and paper crafter Michael LaFosse has used those skills to design and perfect paper planes for decades. In Michael Lafosse's Origami Airplanes, LaFosse presents 28 original paper origami models that incorporate innovative functional and aesthetic details like faceted flaps, ailerons, canards and spoilers that really work. The sense of proportion and balance, and an ingenious nose and fuselage locking system, define these signature models—which are instant classics. Readers accustomed to folding simple darts and wings will be thrilled and challenged by the folding maneuvers in these pages.
