Default Wallis Rigby's flying paper models

Hello All,

I've found an article on paper modeling that has model rocketry (particularly boost-glider) ramifications:

Here is an interesting--and useful--article: "Making Cut-out Models for Jetex Power" by Wallis Rigby (see: ). This article also lists paper modeling books that Mr. Rigby wrote on building such models of trains, planes, and boats (they include plans); he used paper and Bristol board. Mr. Rigby was a professional paper model designer and builder, and most of his paper models, such as airplanes and boats, were *functional*, with some of his paper planes (such as the semi-monocoque structure "Jetex Javelin" [illustrated in the above-linked article]) and paper boats even using Jetex power!
