★ Description


This is a very recognizable shape that I wanted to make out of paper. That round shape made out of multiple folds looks very nice hanged in the room. I'm planning to add some clouds to this model. Drop me a message if you don't see them in the order and I'll send them separately. I have a version that has art on top of the model, but I guess people would like to use their own paper and graphics, so I'm sharing the plain model.
In my opinion, it is better to start from the tail working your way to the front of the blimp. That way you would start with the hardest pieces when there is nothing else to obstruct your reach. Also, on the last page of the template I have added the cabin for the blimp. You may add it or not. It is a separate piece so it won't be necessary to assemble it if you don't want to.
The model has not that many parts and should be an easy project.


★ Dimensions

The models is:

34 x 10 x 10 cm

which equals

13.3 x 3.9 x 3.9"

It is made out of 12 pieces laid out on 4 sheets of Letter or A4 paper. The model would take you no less than 3 hours to make and it is pretty simple.

You could print them out of 120 - 130 gsm cardstock or to make it nice and sturdy or in other words, something that is around one and half times heavier than a regular printer paper.


★ Quick Tips:

- If you want the fold lines and the edge ID's to end up inside of the model and not be visible, just switch the directions of valley and mountain folds (opposite of what is written in the manual).

- Always pre-score the fold lines. That makes them easier to fold and the creases are better looking. Generally they improve a lot the final look of the model.

- If you are using glue - it is better to use a slow setting one. That way you would have enough time to adjust the pieces. It is a good idea to glue one tab at a time. I use a toothpick to spread the glue on the tap.

These days I've started to use think double sided tape and I could say the results are much better and it is a lot easier to work with it than glue.

- Be patient. It usually takes longer than you've expected but seeing the finished model is very fulfilling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should the fold lines be inside or outside of the model?

It is up to you. The way the instructions are written the fold lines and edge IDs would be on the outside and visible. If you want them to end up inside just switch the directions of valley and mountain folds. All the "valley" folds become "mountain" and vise verse. That way you have to pot the glue on the upper side of the flaps too.

Nothing else needs to be changed.
