Hello everyone! This Instructable has you build a normal paper airplane and remix it into a spaceship with a few easy modifications. It looks neat and if you painted it or something you could probably turn it into a Star Wars Star Destroyer or Super Star Destroyer. I hope you enjoy this Instructable and try to build it and make your own versions of this. (To make a normal, simple paper airplane go to https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Simplest-Paper-Airplane/ by blueckupe).

Step 1: Materials
You will need:
Stapler with at least 2 staples,
8.5 by 11 size piece of paper but Legal and Tabloid sizes of paper make extra large airplanes
Step 2: Fold Paper Airplane
First you will want to fold a normal paper airplane. It should be a plain classic paper airplane with nothing fancy. I learned how to do this a long time ago from a book and then refreshed my memory with the Instructable I mentioned above.
(So sorry that the photos are upside down. Uploading them messed it up.) Next you will want to pull flaps on the bottom of paper airplane so there is a 1/4 in. overlap. Then staple on that overlap to hold your paper airplane together. Now take the flaps and fold them out so they make a large wing like piece. Now you have landing gear for your spaceship.
Step 4: Create Bridge
This is the trickiest step. You have to fold the back of the paper airplane stick up in a triangle shape to make a bridge for your spaceship. (If you succeed you can cut down the fold line on the bridge about halfway and fold them down for a more star destroyer like look)
Step 5: Your Done!
You are finished with this Instructable! If you are good at this and have a lot of paper you could make a fleet of spaceships! I hope you enjoyed this Instructable and leave a comment.
