A long time ago on a freeway far, far away . . . . I was driving home after teaching some kindergarten students how to make an origami penguin when it occurred to me that a penguin and a B-Wing starfighter are very similar. In my head, I figured out how to rework the penguin into my first original Star Wars origami model. At the encouragement of friends, and after lots of trial and error—mostly error—I created an impressive number of original Star Wars origami models.
