Some of the instructions are not very clear, due to difficult to find reference points and somewhat truncated images in a few cases.

In his first book: Awesome Origami Aircraft Models of the World's Best Fighters, Tem Boun favored form over function, creating realistic renditions of airplanes that did not fly. In this new book, however, the focus is not only on the form, but also on the flight capabilities of the finished models. Some nice bonuses include a discussion about how paper airplanes actually fly, a break-down of the different parts of the plane, plane-flying techniques, and how to trouble-shoot your plane, if it does not fly correctly. This is a nice addition to library of folders who wants to impress their peers at school or at the office. There are 26 Origami Designs in Awesome Origami Jets That Fly: Design.

This book achieves what only a few authors have done before: folding paper airplanes that fly and look realistic, without the aid of any cuts, tape, staples or other modifications.

It takes some guts to declare in the title of your book that the contents are "awesome". Overall, I found the models to be interesting, but there are a few flaws that detract from the overall quality of the book.

Some of the instructions are not very clear, due to difficult to find reference points and somewhat truncated images in a few cases. There was also an entire page missing in my copy, making the last model of the book almost impossible to complete correctly. I intend to take that issue up with the publisher.

A few of the models are very difficult to complete without ripping or otherwise damaging ordinary copy paper. For example, the final shaping of the canopy of the F-22 involves stressing the centerline crease and molding about ten layers of paper.

The more realistic models, based on real fighter jets, look impressive, but do not fly very well. With some tweaking and practice, they can be coaxed to perform, but the flight is still not as effortless and impressive as the non-realistic models in the book.

Most of the models are based on other models in the book. After folding most of the planes, it is clear that Tem Boun came up with a couple of standard tail sections and nose sections and then just fit them together and adjusted them as needed to create the desired effects. On one hand this is a little disappointing because it means that many of the planes in the book are similar to each other, but it also means that learning to fold the models will give you a toolkit of sorts which can be used to design and customize planes as you see fit.

For intermediate and better folders who are willing to muddle through some lackluster diagrams and a lot of references to prior models in the book (one model starts with sets of steps from three other models), the end results are fairly impressive looking, although better flight performance can be found in other paper airplane books.

Edit: Given the author's quick response and errata, and some more time with the book, my opinion has improved a bit; I have change my rating from 3 to 4 stars.

These designs don't seem to work very well with the sort of heavier stock paper that you might swipe out of the office laser printer. Thicker paper is very difficult to fold for the number of small, intricate folds that are required here. Paper aerodynamics really punishes warped surfaces and excess weight & drag. I found some lighter weight ruled writing paper on a cardboard-backed pad that worked a lot better.

I also found that these designs require very accurate folding, and I was rarely able to get it right the first time. Practice is repaid, though. I haven't made every model in the book, but I think I've done most of the major variations. They CAN be made to fly.

Each model is made from half of an 8.5 x 11 sheet. Mr. Boun is right, you get two for the price of one.

Interesting and worthwhile for the paper airplane aficionado, though maybe too complicated for kids under 12. Recommended.

I admire Tem Boun's paper plane making skillz, just wish they weren't so damn small!! I had to get 11 x 17 in paper to cut in 1/2 length ways to get a decent sized plane! The planes are quite unique and fly very well. This book is not really for amateur folders, the instructions are pretty good, can be tricky if you try to rush through them...so DON'T! but you'll be pleased with the results!

I appreciate any feedbacks... I was rushing to publish this book, so there are some mistakes that I would like to clarify.

1. The "Javelin" final model should have its cockpit area folded up like its picture.
2. F-15 picture on pg. 96 is incorrect.
3. F-18 second sequence of steps should have been "Ranger 1 steps #12-15" not Archer 1 as listed.
4. The last model, "Avenger," is missing a title for the "third sequence of steps," it should have been labeled to use the Sukhoi-37 steps "#65-73," before steps 59-61 (This should answer the first reviewer's comment).

Like I've mentioned in the text, it may take some flight tests to find that perfect flight pattern since regular copy or print paper weight and grade varies, then so does each paper airplane's flight potential. Also, a simple mistake in any folding process can greatly affect the airplane's flight potential, try refolding the same model several times and/or with different copy paper weight or size (11x17 papers can be easier to fold since it is a larger starting size, just make sure it is mathematically the ratio of 1:2.59).

I welcome any other future feedbacks/reviews/questions and thank you for the support

Starting November 8, 2011, some how-to-videos on some models can be viewed at YouTube website. Please view and try it before buying... just search by book or author name.

I found that carefully following the steps, making sharp creases, and experimenting with how to hold and release made many of these quite impressive. Also, a bit of candle wax on the nose can help balance the lift and help protect the tip from crash damage.
