What You'll Need:
- Paper airplane pattern
- Transparent tape
How to make the SST Thunderdart paper airplane:
Step 1: Cut apart the wing, tail, and fuselage (the plane's main body) along the solid cutting lines.
Step 2: Fold up the fuselage along the fold lines.
Step 3: Fold back the front edge of the wing twice so the edge forms a triangle.
Step 4: Roll the fuselage several times until it resembles a triangular tube, then tape it. Set aside.
Step 5: Tape the underside (belly) of the front folded edge of the wing to the fuselage.
Step 6: Flip the wing back (toward the tail section) onto the fuselage, and tape the rear of the wing. Set aside.
Step 7: Fold back the tail's front edge once, up to the second folding line. Then fold the tail in half, and fold up the tail "wings."
Step 8: Turn the tail over, and place tape across the bottom.
Step 9: Tape the front of the tail to the fuselage. Roll up a piece of tape (sticky side out), and place it between the bottom of the tail and the end of the fuselage. Tape a penny to the top of the nose for added weight.
Step 10: Cut and fold the tail flaps.
