After much trial and error I have finally designed a FOLDed rocket that I like. The trick was making a shape that was interesting but not too difficult to fold. I think this design is a nice balance. There are two versions of the rocket, Rocket Red 5 and Rocket Blue 2. These instructions apply to both versions.
Before you begin yo might want to view the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.1)
Carefully cut out the rocket. Cut along the solid black outlines, DO NOT cut the dashed fold lines.
2) Carefully cut slits indicated by the white lines.
3) Fold along all the dashed fold lines.
4) Now the for the fiddly part. Carefully, and with patience, close the shape by inserting the tabs into their corresponding slots. A into A, B into B, and so on.
I found it easier to do the sides first and the bottom last.
This is the shape you are going for. Essentially it is two three-sided pyramids with fins.
And that’s it! Let me know how it went for you.
