About this title


For generations, kids have been making paper airplanes that really fly when launched by hand. Now, model makers can refine their craft and boost the fun with this, the ultimate book of paper airplanes. Fascinating chapters touch on everything from night fighting tactics to paper airplane folding techniques. The book's final chapter consists of detachable pages of heavy paper that show fold lines and insignia. Kids follow the clear folding instructions to create 20 different gliders that look like actual modern jet night fighters. Better yet, the planes are embellished with glow-in-the-dark inks to create truly authentic night fighter appearances. Each model comes with a thumbnail description of the actual plane it is modeled after, along with additional folding tips for increasing flight stability, adjusting flight trajectory, and modifying flight paths. A great-looking three-panel gatefold at the back of the book opens to present model builders with a miniature aircraft carrier and runway where they can test the accuracy of their landings. Here is the only paper airplane book on the market that uses glow-in-the-dark inks. What could be more appropriate for the Night Fighter?
