Awesome F-4 Phantom Paper Airoplane




This is a really cool plane I learned to build and fairly easy once you get the hang of it.
Like it says in the title this paper plane is based after the F-4 Phantom. Another thing is it flies well, except outdoors and in tight places otherwise a great and fun thing to build. By the way this is my first instructable, so don't get mad at me if it stinks.

Hope you like it.

Step 1: Matireals.

To make this plane you will need:
1. A regular piece of white printer paper
2. Hands to fold the paper
3. Markers,crayons etc... for coloring (optional)
4. Light to see the paper
5. To have fun building

Step 2: Steps to Build

Follow the picture instructions the black lines indicate the folds the steps may look either really easy or really hard it took me a couple tries to get it so keep some extra paper.

Step 3: Designing

When finished folding it should look like the picture at the bottom. If not you probably messed up in one of the folds so go look at the diagram on the last step. Now we can start designing. You can put what ever you want or you can copy the design of the one on intro. After designing you are done.

Step 4: Finished

After designing it should look something like this now have fun and fly it or keep it as a model. Remember for flying it is not good in cramped places or outdoors.

    Nice build & paint job.
    I realise this isn't your design, but don't you think it's not that much like an F4 Phantom? Some of the models on that site are really good, but I'm puzzled by this one.

     yes i know this is not my own work but you have to admit you cnt make a paper plane that looks like a real one and still fly well it would be to flimsy. oh and were the instructions to complicated.

    I was after your opinion on the design really, I thought he'd meant another jet maybe - it's in the wings. But as you say, getting them to fly as well is something else.
