Crease Pattern Challenge 012

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

The next Crease Pattern Challenge is Noboru Miyajima’s Propeller Plane. I’m a big fan of his models but not so much his crease patterns. His previous Crease Pattern Challenge, “Knight on a Pegasus”, was a little vague, so I had to fold it from the diagrams given in a later Tanteidan Magazine then go back and finish the details on the crease pattern one. His website has a lot of crease patterns, but the ones I’ve tried similarly don’t have many details.

I finished the propeller plane without much trouble, but it looked a little different than the pictures. So I found the diagrammed model in Tanteidan Convention Book 7, folded it, and then compared it. Apparently, I did all right; I just shaved off the back fin. The crease pattern on is in blue, and the diagrammed on is grey.

I looked up some of his other models to include here. I’ve got a Rabbit from Tanteidan Magazine 53, and a Cat from Tanteidan Convention Book 8 below.

I’m having trouble with the next Crease Pattern Challenge, “Koch’s Snowflake”. I wonder if maybe I should just skip around. I do have some of the other ones done already.
