Basically one of the coolest things you can make with a dollar.

Step 1: Water Bomb Base

The goal here is to make a water bomb base on one end of the bill. To do that:
-fold the bill in half hotdog style, then unfold (picture 1)
-fold the right top corner over to the edge of the bill, then unfold(picture 2)
-fold the left top corner over to the edge of the bill (picture 3)
-start to fold the open edge of the triangle back over itself (pictures 4 and 5)
-flatten and bring the other flap over (pictures 6 and 7)
-fold the flap back over so that each side has one flap (pictures 8 and 9)
<p>My 9 year old nephew was thrilled with his $10 Jet for his Birthday Present.</p>
<p>Made this for my 6 year old with his tooth fairy money! He loves it! Thanks!!!</p>
This is what made me think of what people are doing these days
<p>I Made it! It looks like yours!</p>
I made my own design based on this and combined it with my paper airplane skills to make a model that looks a lot like a f-14.
Is there any point that can be used as a guide for making that first fold in this step?
Look at my AirHawk instructable. The first step is that fold(after the intro and materials).
Did it! Thanks for posting this. I work with military aviation and I'll be using this on air stations I travel to when leaving tips. Very cool ible.
it worked !!!!!!!!!
it does not fly&nbsp;@ all, waste of&nbsp;$&nbsp;... but it does look good
does it work with a 20 dollar bill?
cool instructable bro <br>here are my paper fighter jets the left one is from a US dollar bill and the right one is a Canadian $5 bill
the pic is bellow
Thx for help
can you use a five dollar bill<br>
I would imagine you could.
Very clear instructions and pictures! Thank you.<br>
Make one out of a fake billion dollar bill, and you'll be fairly accurate! Awesome instructable :)
but will it blend?
Does it fly? i have been told that 20s are more aerodynamic :P
I don't know about the affects on flight but I do know that the higher denominations are picked up much more quickly after crashing into the ground :)
I was more or less quoting a street musician i saw a few days ago. people kept throwing ones at him, but they just flopped around and fell as you would expect. He kept saying that 20's are more aerodynamic. <br><br>very nice plane.
haha! I always do prefer a sense of humor in a person asking for money over one that looks depressed.
yeah, it greatly increases the amount of money they make, too. <br><br>I have a picture that friend took of a guy in San Francisco who has a sign that says &quot;My wife was kidnapped, and I need 97 cents to complete the ransom money&quot;<br><br>I have also seen hobos with signs that say &quot;bet you can't hit me with a quarter&quot;
WOW. This is very nice! You must have lots of time to play around with money. because your other dollar bill Ibles' are also Awesome. 5*
Looks just like the F14's, or F18's. I like this!<br /> You should enter it into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Weekly-Play-Challenge-Paper-Airplanes/">Paper Airplane Challenge</a>.
