852: (302/365) Magic Carpet Ride

Posted by wonko on October 29, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, vehicle |

Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.

848: (298/365) Dogfight

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

I am blessed to have friends who occasionally gather around an original board game from the 60’s and pit plane against plane in a WW2ish game of “Dogfight”: Tonight it was the valiant PDub against the Von Richtoffen Brothers, with much valiance on both sides, some gutsy moves and a bunch of squabbling like 4 […]

807: (257/365) Won’t you come and fly ….

Posted by wonko on September 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, vehicle |

…in my beautiful balloon: This is an 18 section balloon made from 6 modules that overlap and interleave, edge locks that secure the geometry, no glue, no cuts etc. I can see it decorating a small kid’s bedroom, surrounded by planes and rocket ships. Who wants it?

674: (124/365) Red Leader Standing By

Posted by wonko on May 4, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, scifi, vehicle |

May The Fourth be with you. Now I must admit to being one of the original Star Wars nerds, seeing the films when first aired a number of times – they heralded a new style of Sci-Fi, a place where space was common place, space ships were clean and villains announced their evil plans with […]

628: (78/365) Little Plane

Posted by wonko on March 19, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

Another paper plane – this one a lot like a single propeller Cesna: An interesting fold, thankfully executed with thin paper (a sheet of purple hand-made washi from Daiso)

623: (73/365) Burro con Carro

Posted by wonko on March 14, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal, vehicle |

Yoshizawa Sensei once said “The Horse and the rider are not one, nor should a model of them be”, or words to that effect and I think this model is an interesting reflection of that sentiment: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Burro con Carro” which I think means “Donkey and Cart”. Fashioned from a 3×1 rectangle, […]

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 basedĀ 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 […]

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 modelĀ 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 […]
