Mark in California built this very smart little Origami. White on the outside but varnished within. With it's 2.5 hp motor it happily planes.

'I have now finished building the Origami and tested it today, it is a brilliant toy!!!! We had lots of fun and the bystanders didn't believe it and all wanted a go - no way! Unfortunately the motor is not mine and I have to give it back, but paddling was fun too.'
 
Clive, in Turkey.
Dave in the UK built this fabulous Origami with it's RAF Roundels.

Dave tells me that DH 9 is also a De Havilland first world war bomber, his wife's dad, an 18 year old, survived being shot down in one!

This is "Miss Independence Pants" beautifully built by Deb. Here's what she said:

She got her name, by the way, from a friend who thought it reflected my insistence I would build her without help until fitting the fabric.  I did and it was not hard - the instructions are excellent.  Indeed, it was much fun.  Thanks for creating the design.

Stowed very neatly on the deck of her Contessa 26

persistance
Colin built two colourful Origamis, Persistence and Confidence. He says:

'The dinghies work very well
and are very stable - so stable,
that we prefer to stand up when
using them, rather than sitting
rowing in the normal way!

I can easily carry both dinghies
on the roof rack of my small
family car. Brilliant!'
