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 […]

311: Air Mail

Posted by wonko on November 7, 2011 in blarg, domestic |

“Once upon a time, boys and girls, people used to use hand-held ink dispensing rods to make marks on flat sheets of manufactured plant fibre, fold them, place them inside an envelope of the same material, write a distant geospatial reference on one side, their own geospatial reference on the other. They would then pay […]

274: White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2011 in mammal |

The beginning of another month, and I am finding it difficult to find rabbits to fold: This is Stephen O’Hanlon’s rabbit – a simple figurative fold that is suitably rabbitty for the “pinch and punch first day of the month”. I cannot believe this heralds the last quarter of this project (10th month starting).

209 Elias’ Bull

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2011 in mammal |

When I bought “Selected Works” by Neil Elias, I was delighted with teh collection of box pleating models from the founder of this technique After watching masterchef tonight I thought “What a lot of bull” – judges and contestants sprouting such a lot of false sentimentality the model I decided to fold was really obvious […]

Posted by wonko on July 27, 2011 in geometry |

Now I am not an experienced modular folder, but this is relatively new to me and yee gods it is interesting. Having Parent-torture interviews tonight I got home in time to do the final assembly for this little beauty: Designed by Jorge Pardo, it takes 60 – yes children, that is right SIXTY squares of […]

165: Sugar Plump Fairy

Posted by wonko on June 14, 2011 in humanoid |

I once shared a house with 3 other uni friends – much happened, most memorable. Late one night, instead of finishing a due-next-day assignment, Mark was seen flitting and pirouetting through the house: We coined the expression “sugar plump fairy” after the dance he was attempting, it stuck. Happy Birthday Mark!!! I like this model, […]

164: Queen Anne Table

Posted by wonko on June 13, 2011 in furniture |

Now I put my hand up as a staunch REPUBLICAN – I have never seen the sense of a colonial country holding on to a token monarchy. It would be different if the monarchy were actually USEFUL to us, like a table: Strong, supportive, present, made of something sustainable and central to daily life, a […]

158: Little Plane

Posted by wonko on June 7, 2011 in vehicle |

Stuck for something to do, honestly, so decided to try and make sense of a set of instructions in Spanish with hand-drawn diagrams and hola: This is a little plane – most likely a cesna or similar – remarkably little effort to make a fairly detailed plane Nice landing gear, good wings – it glides! No propeller […]

140: A Cannon

Posted by wonko on May 20, 2011 in machine |

Now one of the things I enjoy playing, with my mate, is an old-school game called “Dogfight” – great fun of plane v plane between German and American allied forces, set in WWI, when fair game and honour existed between aces. One of the game elements is a cannon: A fairly clever figurative model that […]

3: Jackstone

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2011 in geometry |

This is, in my opinion, a masterpiece of pre-folding, you make one model, unfold it and bend it into another model. I pride myself of folding this from memory – not bad given I have not folded it in at least 15 years. One piece of paper (photocopy A4 is not great as it frays after […]
