Well just to tell you... Someone will surely have helped you by tomorrow. You cant just wait a few hours. Things take time, maybe someone is making a photo diagram right now! But if you are a little more patient more people will respect you.

i'm working on a unspectacular photo-diagram and do hope i'll be able to post it later this day. there'll be probably just pictures - i'm in lack of time these days - but if there are questions on a special step, i'll try to explain the way to fold ...

after having done all the squashfolds - to be seen in pic11 - you have to pull all loose tips from above downwards. pic 12 is the result and with a special arrangement of the flaps you'll get the back of the growing bird with pic13 and the belly with pic 14. i hope, this will help ...

for those who're interested in the pictures, too - i'll try to post them in chapters within the next days.

let's start posting the swallow-pictures! it'll probably take some time until all of the 50 pictures will appear in here and again for adding some explaining comments. please, if you'll get the bird ready, post a picture to the forum and do not forget the authorship - it's a model by sipho mabona. sipho taught this old version - the new one has a closed belly - at the german convention 2009 . i took the chance to join his workshop and with refolding it from time to time i managed it to remember the way to fold that swallow.

i'd recommend a size not smaller than 20x20 cm. i did it with different paper qualities - copy, kraft, tant - but cannot say what's best. just try to find your own favourites ...

1 fold the diagonals and - on the other side - the middle creases
Image
2 collapse the paper to a triangle
Image
3 fold the long edge of each flap to the middle crease
Image
4 squash fold each flap
Image
5 and make ...
Image
6 a petal fold - 4 times
Image
7 fold one of the lower triangle flaps ...
Image
8 ... inside
Image
9 fold the short edges of the remaining flaps to the middle crease
Image
10 open again and squash fold ...
Image
11 ... to get something like this
Image
12 pull the free tips downwards ...
Image
13 to reach this level - the future backside
Image
14 and the front or belly side
Image
15 pull out the wings
Image
16 if you do it right, the lower part will misteriously catch
the parting edge inside
Image
17
Image
18 fold the tip of the wings to the opposite crossing point of neck and shoulderline
Image
19 and back outside-down
Image
20 do you recognize the reference points to fold both of these little flaps?
Image
21 open up the wings slightly and make two pockets
Image
22 form the lower wing parts ...
Image
23 ... like this
Image
24 and tuck the rearranged upper flaps ...
Image
25 into the pocket below
Image

do you remember creating these small pockets in step 21? now you have to fold the lower layer over the edge of the pockets and tuck the little flaps inside.

you're welcome, gogleash. i wish a successful folding session!
to the moderation-team - is it o.k., when i'm going to post all of the 50 pictures to this thread? every single pic is smaller than the 640-pixel-border anna wrote about some days ago and at least it's my webspace i'm wasting with it ...

Theoretically you can post as many pictures as you want on this Forum as long as they are on topic and not too big. But since this is a model by Sipho Mabona, you should ask him for permission to post them.

i did ask for permission and sipho did agree. he just wanted me to make clear that it is an old version and to give a link to his website - here it is:

http://www.mabonaorigami.com

we did not discuss a publication at this origami forum but i'm going to send a link to sipho.
