69: Space Shuttle

Posted by wonko on March 10, 2011 in scifi, vehicle |

Now I read, after the fact, that the Space Shuttle “Discovery” landed for the last time, and I gather it will not go up again.

I quite like this model, fairly simple folds but the shape relies on shaping and puckering in places to indicate lines – neat indeed.

You too can have a go: http://www.nickrobinson.info/origami/diagrams/shuttle1.htm

    Since you put this model in the sci-fi category and I can tell your research is quite good, maybe you can help me with something:

    I had an SR-71 Blackbird pattern that I loved. Made with shiney black paper it produced an awesome replica. But I seem to have lost the pattern. I know it was in a book, and I know I did not loan out that book so I have been baffled for a long time trying to figure out why I cannot find it. In any case, I have several times over the years wanted to make that model again…

    Do you know the model I am referring to (I have actually only ever seen one such model) or happen to have it/seen it in your research? If you can point me toward reacquiring that pattern I would be very grateful.
