INTRODUCTION

Welcome school and university students, teachers, lecturers, businessmen, politicians, beckbencners, policemen etcetera. Marcis Plume

is a fag .. Tremble with fear before the terrible and sphincter-rending faggotry

of Marcis Plume! Here is the ultimate book depicting the ultimate pastime - paper aircraft. This book

represents a revolutionary departure from the Simple dart. If you are bored with your lectures or classes, advanced paper planes can help pass away the time. Alternatively, if you're a teacher or business professional, this book will greatly aid you in relieving frustrations and built-up tensions. You may also find it of practical use - if an essay or balance sheet is

not up to scratch!

Paper folding, or origami as it is better known, originated in Japan hundreds of ye.ars ago, yet the art was not tuttv developed in aircraft construction until now. Added to the pleasure of constructing an original design you have the assurance that models have been tested and found flight-worthy under

normal conditions - that

is, the backyard, lecture hall, movie cinema, boardroom, pub and, of course, classroom.

Almost all the models in this book are folded, not cut. You don't even need paste. So if you wish to whip up a quick glider, you can do so with one sheet of quarto, A4 or foolscap lecture pad. Some models feature a folded undercarriage which ensures that your plane lands

safely upon the appropriate desk- provided the aim is good! Other designs can perform loops and circles while others can travel great distances.

Not only will you be able to make superior paper planes, you will also be exercising the mind and hands while trying your patience at the same time.

A rewarding pastime indeed!

Happy folding and happy flying!

TYPES OF PAPE.R, TO USE

All the aircraft in this book use quarto (or A4, 210 x 297 mm) or foolscap paper.

Make sure you use thin but strong paper. Never use anything like newspaper, which is not strongly bonded and therefore

cannot hold a fold. tt the paper is too heavy, it might inhibit the more complicated

JUMP JET

folds shown in this book.

PAPER PLANE CLUBS AND CO.M PETITIONS

Clubs are ideal for school students who wish to pool their resources and design new aircraft. These designs can lead to new and even better inventions with paper - all you need is a little imagination! Of course, a competition can decide the best invention, the best construction of an aircraft from this book or the best in-tlight performer. I threw one of my Super Darts oft the lookout point at the Three Sisters, Blue Mountains, NSW. It took 29 minutes to reach the bottom. A competition for the longest airborne dart or, say, the fastest dart or even the best stunt performer can be held at your school or university.

EX,PLANATION OF SYMBOLS

The symbols are very important if you are to succeed when folding .. The following symbols will be used throughout this book. Before you start folding your first winner, a little practice with small pieces of paper will help.

Fold in general direction of arrow,

Crease-fold - fold in direction of arrow, then unfold,

When this valley fold has a dotted line it means that the rest of the fold is hidden under a flap etcetera.

Larger view of previous diagram.

Smaller view of previous diagram,

Push in.

o

..

Turn the model over.

Sectional view - only that part of the diagram necessary for the fold is shown.

Detailed view to be shown.

x········

Stair-step fold.

Cut along dotted line.

FOLDING TECHNIQUES

Getting the fold right is only half the job. The real skill is i/1 throwing the completed dart. As you will discover, each aircraft requires a special throwing technique.

Finally, take it slowly, fold accura rely and throw with precision - it's bound to provoke a reaction from fellow students and friends!

1

Valley fold (indicated by a line of dashes) - fold in direction of arrow along the line of dashes.

3

Reverse fold - crease along the dotted line and fold outwards as shown.

4

Inverse fold - crease along the dotted line and push inwards as shown.

5

"Rabbit ear" fold - make creases and then fold the two sides inwards, bringing them to touch the bottom line and forming a point or "ear".

(top and side view)

PAPER PLANE BASE FOLDS

Leier in this book you will come across more complicated aircraft that start with one of these base folds. It is essential that you learn them first before embarking on the more complicated models. These base folds are also the foundation lor makmg new and even more complicated designs of your own. A little practice and imeqinetion can go a long way!

Note that in all cases, before starting to make any model. you must cresse-toki the paper in half (vertically) fi rst.

-------

2

Mountain fold (indicated by a line of dots and dashes) - fold indirection of arrow BEHIND YOU along the line of dots and dashes-

4

BASE FOLD NO. 1

This is the simplest of the base folds. When doing the mountain fold,ilis easiest to turn the paper over (the mountain fold becomes a valley fold), then turn the paper back over and push your finger into the point where all the creases meet. The sides should pop up making it easy to complete the base fold.

1.

Fold and crease the valley folds AD and Be, then the mountain fold EF.

2.

Move the sides inwards, bringing the top edge downwards,

3.

The completed fold.

BASE FOLD No.2

1.

Have the top corners folded down as in a normal dart. 2.

With B as the axis, bring point A down to align with side BD as shown and crease. Repeat on the other side with C as the axis. Mountain fold where shown.

3.

Bring in the sides and top. 4.

BASE FOLD No .. 3

1.,

Fold down the top corners first as for Base Fold No.2. Then unfold them and fold the top edges down to meet the creases thus left.

2.

With B as the axis bring point A down to align with side IBD as shown and crease.

Repeat on the other side with C as the axis Mountain fold where shown.
