Found this today while looking for cardstock rocket models:


I blame @GlenP and his amazing Alpha Draco.

My first introduction to PDO files. Quite amazing 3D designed origami. You'll need a copy of Pepakura Viewer to print any PDO files you find.

.

3D model can be rotated in the left window and highlighted items in the right window are displayed in isolation in the left. Very cool.

That looks like a cool model you could convert into a rocket. I wish I could run the Pepapkura software on the Mac, I just use Inkscape for my simple cardstock rockets, or I look for the PDF format models.

I just tried printing to PDF from the Pepakura viewer and it works fine. I now have a PDF version if you want it.

Wow, that blogger has some pretty detailed models, airplanes with spinners and props that actually spin!

Yes, those are also pretty detailed, could be converted into flying models.

That P13a could maybe be balanced to glide and used as a parasite glider on a larger rocket, like maybe the Blue Bird Zero?

Or possibly something similar to the Dr. Zooch lifting body design.
