Product Description

Sleek, slick, and beautiful, this volume is just the ticket for paper-airplane enthusiasts. The 18 projects are sophisticated and demanding, designed to be constructed carefully, and arranged in order of increasing complexity. Schmidt begins with a brief discussion of how an airplane flies, followed by a glossary of aeronautical terms. The first four models involve a single sheet of paper carefully scored and folded; the remainder require folding, cutting, gluing, and, often, more than one piece of paper. Background information for each model includes similarities to real-life airplanes based on the particular shape of their fuselage and wing. The book features crisp white diagrams, clear black-type, step-by-step instructions, yellow boxes of special construction information, and magnified views of tricky sections. Anyone studying flight would learn a great deal from these models and have fun in the process.

It’s a bird—no, it’s a paper plane and one of the greatest ever to fly! These 18 models, named for birds, are simply breathtaking. From “Eagle” to “Swallow,” they come with easy-to-follow folding tips and fantastic decorating suggestions to copy, and feature designs that really soar and swoop. The playful possibilities, arranged in order of complexity, include the slender, long-nosed Egret; the broad-winged Condor; and the highly maneuverable Mockingbird. Color illustrations display the final versions, and there’s detailed advice on construction, trim, and launching.
