    We start with a teenie weenie piece of paper ( or BIG for all you cheaters out there... :twisted: )

    Fold in half...

    Cut out the tail like this...

    Now make a cut like this...can you already see the shape of the plane kids ? :-D

    [​IMG]

    This is what you should have in front of you right now...

    [​IMG]

    Now fold like this...

    [​IMG]

    ...and cut like this...

    [​IMG]

    If you fold it open it should look like this...

    [​IMG]

    Now take your tweesers and roll the nose into shape (...like this...:grin: )

    [​IMG]

    Now bend the little flaps in the middle...

    [​IMG]

    And glue them and the tail together ...

    [​IMG]

    Glue the nose as well and bend it in to shape with a pencil...

    [​IMG]

    Now it should look like this...

    [​IMG]

    Give the teenie weenie pilot (not included :-D ) some room with a toothpick...give it a nice paintjob...and you are ready to fly !!!

    Excellent - the patterns would be great printed on the back of business cards.

    Teenies

    Cute! They would be cool hanging as a bunch like a mobile- looking like they were all dogfighting in any breeze.

    Good idea...

    I use iron wire and twist it around a desklight...
    The shadow you get on the wall is amazing:grin:

    I will make some pictures of that soon...

    This is a very good idea for little pieces!

    And I bet it'll take my little dwarfs at home a good time to spare!

    Thanks!

    That is a pretty cool design Triop!

    Your talent for the tiny stuff is improving.

    Next thing we know, you will be doing bi-planes with rigging!:twisted:

    Keep up the nice work!
