The Deltry Paper Airplane - page 2


Diagram one and instructions for folding the Deltry folded paperairplane - crease

7. Fold and unfold two top triangles, much as you did in step 3, where the dashed valley folds are shown. Just as in step 3, the inner edges of the new triangles should line up with the center line of the plane you are making. That is to say, don't try to fold right up against the tip you folded up in step 5, since that tip is supposed to be a bit lower.

8. Now bisect the new folds you made, using the previous creases you just made in step 7 as a guide. Fold and then unfold along the two dashed lines, leaving you back where you started, having created two new upper creases.

9. Now you can fold the two large right angle triangles down again, repeating the first part of step 7. For the moment, ignore the two new creases you just created in step 8.

10. Fold along the two dotted-and-dashed "mountain folds", tucking the lower triangles well underneath, snugly locking them in place. (These two triangles of paper go under the tip you folded up in step 5.) The next diagram, Diagram 11, actually shows this being done. You've almost made a paper airplane.
