    I concur. I'd love to see where you got the F-22 folding instructions.

    I was expecting to have to explain the difference between origami and papercraft to somebody.

    I am pleasantly surprised!

    I'm going to have to look this one up. Origami plus fighter planes? Win! :) 

    How big is it? And does it have a P-38 in it? :D

    They may not transform, but at least I'm proud to have made them! Thanks very much! :thumbs2: 

    Indeed! :)  If you mean by the book, it would be about about 21x27cm. As much as I wish the P-38 is included, unfortunately, it wasn't listed, sorry about that. :( 

    It's been a while since I made another set - I think, if including the detailing, about an hour or more... who knows? Thanks by the way! :thumbs2: 

    Thank you! :thumb

    :jawdropper:  Total. SWEETNESS. I'm an origami artist myself, and I'm in awe. Is the decor added post-fold or is it integrated color-reversal?

    As for actual transforming origami models... I found a transforming Macross Valkyrie, AKA Jetfire, but I can't make heads or tails of the instructions... Maybe you'll have better luck.

    Thanks! The decor would be added post-fold as it would be impossible for me to intergrate this. Via the usage of pieces of paper for decoration, along with the 2007 Movie Decepticon insignias to the wings.

    Hm... sounds interesting and intriguing! Maybe I'll see if I could give this a shot, if possible. Wouldn't be easy, but I'll try.

    Doesn't look TOO hard. The righthand part is just the crane base, we all know how to do that. Just start in the middle column and read from right to left.

    I'ma try this later tonight.
