Flying paper models of modern fighters
In nineties one Russian technical journal called "Levsha" started publishing plans and instructions how to build scaled paper airplane models of modern fighters like MiG-29, Su-27, Su-35 and others.
The instruction of how to build such airplanes is pretty simple. Just print the plan, cut it and glue in order according to instruction.
The list of models you can build:
Unfortunately instructions are in Russian, but you should be able to build model without it as everything is pretty straightforward. Every detail on the plan has number and there is picture how to glue all details together.
Instruction is as following:
1. Print the plan
2. Cut all details
3. Fold details as necessary
4. Glue details together in right order.
The nose of the model should be glued as the last detail because model needs to be calibrated to fly. Glue piece of foam and/or plasticine inside the nose, make sure center of gravity is right and then glue nose to the fuselage.
Once everything is glued, you can paint your model with schema you like.
The list of models is not full yet. Please check regularly for updates in our articles and models catalog to see whether new models are added. We are also working to translate original article and full instruction how to build these models.
