Hello Oz,

many thanks for the pictures. I almost did the same and had more or less the same result,
but I was struggling on on the flaps. I see in the book that it shows 3 flaps to open for the tail.
From your pictures I also see only 3 flaps. On is just the corner to open a bit more and the other one is open completely. So there suppose to be 2 only?

Cheer,

The tail is all connected, so you effectively pull on the flap you folded in step 28. When you flatten, just make sure to crease along the diagonal. Here's the creases for the tail and a short video showing me do it. (Keep in mind I've already folded this once, so the creases are already in the tail.)

This is a link to the video.

Hopefully this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Oz,

this is a great angle to see everything, especially the short videoclip!
Many thanks! That really helped a lot!
I will try to fold the hummingbird this weekend and post the result in here...

Cheers,
