Got to about step 3 on the Enterprise and gave up. I'm bad at origami and weird diagrams..

It's also fairly abstract. I'm sure there's an origami design of the X-wing that includes a slenderer nose, engines, cockpit and little droid head poking up. But I don't know if those insanely contorted folds, while impressive, always do it for me.

Interesting that they don't mention any of the roots of Origami day in that "article".

Enterprise on the domain name www.barf.cc huh? Sounds legit.

Dollar Bill Starship Enterprise and Blade Runner Unicorn would both make excellent band names/Fark account names.

Now that's just plain funny!

Here's some of the recent models I've been working on: sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net

The giraffe and the pelican came from Origami for the connoisseur and took about 2 hours apiece to fold. The scorpion diagram can be found here and is a much simpler design (all models are small, folded from 15cm paper). Also, if you like the X-wing design FTFA, more diagrams can be found here. I'm planning on folding a few of those tonight as well as the Batman in the article.

Happy folding everyone!

Arg! I packed all my origami supplies last night@*(^&^

Wonder if I should sneak some out of the box...

Anyone else notice that the copyright date on the Unicorn is 1996? 
Shenanigans.
