Hobbyists, aviation enthusiasts, and history buffs alike will find hours of enjoyment in this guide to making and flying paper fighter planes. Many of the past century's classic fighters are included here, such as the legendary Sopwith Camel, P-51 Mustang, Mitsubishi Zero, Messerschmitt Bf 109, and the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom. Simply photocopy the predrawn and numbered parts for each model onto a standard index card, then cut and construct them into working planes with actual flight characteristics. For a little extra realism, add authentic details—model markings, national symbols—to the aircraft using basic art supplies. A historical narrative describes the evolution of plane designs over the course of the past 100 years, as well as the progression of each model.
