10 best schemes to make paper airplane
Origami is a pleasant and relaxing leisure, and it is also a great way to switch, distract from work and unload your head. Much more interesting are figures that can do something, and not just stand beautifully on the table. Not for nothing that jumping frogs, floating ships or flying airplanes are so popular. It is with paper planes that we will now deal with!
1. A simple A4 paper airplane
Take a sheet of A4 paper - the usual thin one is suitable for the printer. Mark the central vertical and rotate the upper corners to it to make a "house". Bend the corners to the center again - now more so that they reach almost the bottom. Fold the figure in half and bend the wings of the airplane along the line where the corners converge.
2. Airplane with a "beak"
Unfold a sheet of A4 paper horizontally and mark the middle. Turn the corners to the center one, and then the second time - you will get the same workpiece as on the simplest plane. Fold the shape in half so that the sharp tip protrudes slightly beyond the straight base.
Fold the corners of the trapezoid again so that they meet straight sides exactly in the middle. Fold the figure in half with the even side inward, bend down the beak head and spread your wings to the sides. If you paint such an airplane, it will easily turn into a bird of prey.
3. Wide paper plane
Lay A4 paper with the wide side facing you and mark the center horizontal. On the one hand, also place both quarters, and the second bend in half vertically. Bring the lower right corner up to the first marking line.
Lower the upper right corner so that they are neatly aligned diagonally with the lower part. Fold the sharp nose to the center and wrap around the protruding tip of the upper wing around it for fixation. Fold the part in half, unfold the wings of the plane and, if desired, paint them with striking stripes.
4. Swallow Aircraft
Take a rectangular sheet of paper, unfold it with the wide part toward you and rotate the diagonal of the conditional square on one side. Bend the second corner so that the base coincides with the base of the future triangle. Rotate the top of the triangle down in the middle and turn it up again after about a centimeter. Fold the figure in half with an even part inward and spread the wings of the “swallow”.
5. Aircraft with a reinforced nose
The advantage of such an airplane made of paper is that it does not have a sharp nose that wrinkles instantly upon its first collision with the wall. Turn A4 sheet vertically and rotate the upper corners to the center to get a “house”. Fold the "house" in half with the top of the triangle clearly to the base.
Fold the upper corners of the rectangle down, but at an angle: a distance of 1-2 cm should remain above, but the edges converge from below. Press these edges with the corner of the top of the "house" and smooth this fold. Fold the figure in half and bend the wings of the plane at an angle from nose to tail.
6. The plane with the "ears"
Such an airplane almost does not differ from the usual one in complexity and structure, but it looks more interesting. Unfold a sheet of A4 paper with the narrow side facing you and wrap the upper corners in a "house". Turn the workpiece to the back and wrap the corners in the middle again. This is the main difference from the standard scheme, where both bends are made in a row on the one hand.
Spread the upper part of the narrow triangle into a rhombus, as in the diagram, and fold it in half down. Bend the corner back with the “ladder”, fold the figure in half and form wide wings with a slight slope. Such an aircraft looks interesting from colored paper due to the color transition in the bow.
Turn a rectangular sheet of A4 paper with the narrow side toward you, lay the upper corners to the center, and then again. Fold the shape in half so that the top of the triangle touches the base of the sheet. Flip the hexagonal workpiece and wrap the corners to the center again - you get a heptagon.
Bend the top of the workpiece down so that it lies on a straight line with the bases of the corners. Spread up a narrow long nose, which remained on the back of the figure. Fold the paper fighter in half and bend the wings in straight parallel lines.
8. Aircraft with curled wings
This airplane resembles the previous one, but differs slightly in the shape of the wings. Turn A4 sheet of paper toward you with the wide side and rotate the corners to the middle one, and then the second time. Fold the blank in half so that the narrow peak of the triangle protrudes beyond the base by a couple of millimeters.
Turn the hexagon upside down and rotate the corners to the center again - you get a heptagon. Wrap the top down and turn the lower narrow nose to the same side, as in the diagram. Fold the part in half, unfold the wings, and then bend the edges 90 degrees up on them.
9. Space fighter
Making a paper fighter in the spirit of your favorite space saga is not difficult at all, but there is an interesting feature. Turn A4 sheet with the narrow side toward you and fold the upper part “roll”, as in the diagram. And only then bend the upper corners to make the usual "house".
Turn the part with the flat side facing you, fold it in half and lay the edges of the triangles up and down inwards on both sides. Turn the figure over onto a wide base, bend the upper part from corner to corner and wrap the lower right angle inward. Lower the base of the wings 90 degrees, and then raise the edges back up - another 90.
Lay A4 paper with the narrow side toward you and rotate the upper corners towards the middle. Fold the “house" in half and unfold the part with the fold up, and wrap the triangular top inwards to get a kind of beak. Simultaneously bend the edge of the “beak” to the side and lift up the wing to get a figure as in the diagram.
Turn the workpiece over and do the same on the other side so that all the lines coincide. In the square part there will be an internal corner that needs to be straightened down out. Lift your neck and form the head of the crane from a narrow triangular part, and form the wings with a "ladder" down and up.
