Origami is the art of creating objects out of a single square sheet of paper. The purpose of this instruction set is to allow the user to create their own armada of X-Wing star fighters from Star wars. Here are a video tutorial instructions for how to make an origami x-wing described by Alex Crosse. You may never step into the cockpit of your own X-Wing, but you can at least a make a very tiny version with this handy origami tutorial guide.
x-win 150The X-Wing was originally a stunt craft and was purchased by the Rebel alliance and converted into
star fighters. The distinctive X shape of the X-wing comes from the s-foil wings which can change
positioning: open for increased maneuverability (attack position) or closed for increased speed (cruising
position). The X-wing is an all around good star fighter with high speed, maneuverability, payload
capacity and durability.
This was done using a 15cm-square of thin paper, coloured on one side and white on the other – the x-wing ends up coloured all over. When making folds, try to be as precise as possible, particularly when folding a corner in half! Some of the folds get very thin at the end.
