It doesn't really matter in what order you make those two reverse folds, but in the diagrams the first reverse fold is on the upper flap, the second one on the lower flap.
So long and keep folding ^_^

If you are coming to the BOS Convention this weekend I could show you how to do it :wink:
Otherwise you will have to wait until next week before I can help you further since I'm leaving tomorrow morning...
Good luck, it's a very nice model :)

I'm glad to hear you managed to fold it :)

Yes, the diagrams on how to form the wings weren't that clear, where exactly are you having troubles?

From 28 to 29 you reverse fold the lower corner of the wing inside, from 29 to 30 you reverse fold the upper corner of the wing. There are no landmarks for these steps so just shape the wings how you think it appropriate.
And the next step (from 30 to 31) is just shaping the wings, making them a bit 3D.

You're welcome :)
