The Harrier plane makes a fantastic addition to your classic folded airplanes. It has a lot of weight in the front to help keep the plane’s flight level. It also has an inbuilt lock to keep the folds in place which helps to reduce drag. On top of all that it also looks cool!
- A blue line is where you need to make a new crease.
- The green dot shows the bit of the paper that you’ll be moving to a new spot.
- The red dot shows where the bit of paper will end up once you’ve finished making the new crease.
Fold a sheet of paper in half lengthwise.
Open the sheet of paper up again. Fold the top corners inwards so they meet at the middle crease. The inside edges of the flaps will line up with the crease.
Make a fold underneath the triangle shape(s). The tip of the triangle should end up around an inch from the bottom of the page). Your paper will look a little like an envelope.
Fold the top corners inwards so they meet at the middle crease. The inside edges of the flaps will line up with the crease. There will be a little ‘tail’ poking out from under the flaps.
Fold the tail over the top of the flaps.
Turn the plane over and fold it in half. The flaps and folds will be on the outside of the plane.
Fold the wing down. The edge of the wing will line up with the bottom of the plane.
Repeat on the other side.
Open the wings up and you’re done! Have fun with your new Harrier!
