Overall Impression

This is Tem Boun's first book in a series of aircraft origami theme. The model airplanes here are not of the flying type, but rather strive to be accurate model representations of real fighter airplanes of the world. Each model is folded from one of 3 sizes of rectangles, easily achievable from Letter-sized paper. It is best to use thin strong paper, or foil. The models are grouped in the book by the number of vertical stabilizers and paper size. There are also instructions for a display stand for the airplanes.

The folding process of these models is very interesting. Boun introduces some new techniques and maneuvers, and achieves very pleasing results.

The only gripe I have with this book is the quality of the diagrams, which are drawn as bitmaps, causing some distortions and inaccuracies. This should not pose a big problem for the more experienced folders, but might get in the way of beginners.

Other than that, this book will be a fine addition to any folder's library.
