605: (55/365) Starship

Posted by wonko on February 24, 2017 in 365-2017, scifi, vehicle |

Origami, the final frontier. These are the journeys of the paper folder “Wonko”, his ONE YEAR MISSION, to seek out new models and folding techniques, to boldly fold where he has not folded before: This cutie little Trek-inspired ship was hidden away in a Tanteidan convention book I have and all the annotations are in […]

592: (42/360) Sooo…Mr Whitehouse, Can you Fold a Paper Plane?

Posted by wonko on February 11, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

I have lost count of the times I have been asked this by students, presumably based on the assumption that because I fold paper I must make a mean paper plane: Truth be told when I make simple paper darts they fly terribly, not sure why. Many of the worlds great origamists started with paper planes […]

571: (21/365) OMG!!!!

Needless to say the media is abuzz with reactions to Trump’s inauguration. Let us hope that the he does not become the “Bane” of their existence (even though part of his speech was plagiarised from the Marvel Universes’ fictitious tyrant presidential coup, I am sure this is merely coincidence): One has to have hope in […]

532: A Krafty Little Fokker

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2016 in vehicle |

Manfred von Richthofen, AKA “The Red Baron” flew a TRIPLANE – I know, right! Now a Triplane makes no sense to me, but using it, von Richthofen shot down his last 19 enemy planes, and subsequently crashed himself (you win some, you lose some): I have lost count of the times students have asked if […]

Segway V2

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2015 in vehicle |

I was recently asked how I folded my Segway model because someone wanted one. I was loathed to part with my original and to be honest I had no idea, I just folded it, so decided to revisit the model (which seems unique in the origami community) and see if it can be methodologised: Originally I […]

515: Viking Longship

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2015 in vehicle |

Ever since first watching the telly series “Vikings” (currently 3 seasons, worth looking for) I was a fan of the gritty realism and glimpse into the lifestyle (albeit cinematicised) of what I imagine was a hard working and noble race: The character “Floki” was an odd inventor genius and ship builder, I think he would have […]

514: Convertible

Posted by wonko on October 24, 2015 in vehicle |

As a member of Origami USA (OUSA), we get access to some member designs and this one stuck out as something fun to try: Jason Ku’s Convertible uses some standard (and not so standard) box pleating tricks to sculpt a fully formed car from a flat sheet.

504: Coxless Four

Posted by wonko on September 5, 2015 in humanoid, vehicle |

Rowing is huge at my school – a veritable machine that hundreds of kids get very passionate about, a gear-fest like few others: Seems the purpose of the sport is to put boys in lycra, sitting atop tiny fiberglass shells, armed with a paddle rowing furiously backwards across vast distances of water. The competitive nature […]

490: Shake, Rover, Shake

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2015 in scifi, vehicle |

I have been a fan of Star Trek since it was possible to be so, love the franchise, movies, series, the lot. I saw a diagram that resulted in an ATAT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport) – one of many fairly silly designs from The Babylon 5 universe, and with some shaming from a friend (thanks Dodes) I decided […]

485: Segway

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2014 in domestic, fantasy, vehicle |

…so I am a teacher, and I teach senior students: I have, on occasions, joked about how cool it would be to own a Segway – my classes are physically far apart and getting between campuses takes time, hence the idea that a PTD (personal transport device) would be cool. I _never_ in my wildest […]
