This is another model that Scott Cramer taught at our local New Hampshire group meeting. Though I own the book it’s published in, I had never tried folding it before. (Story of my life.) It turns out the model is made from a very simple unit, just 8 of them, and is really easy to assemble. Best of all, it’s two models in one, really, and a great toy to fidget with – there’s a trick! It converts, via sliding, from a star to a ring.
The star alone is nice looking; the intermediate stages are also pretty cool, and once it’s in “ring” form, you can toss it like a Frisbee (flying disk toy, for those of you not here in the US; though, I dunno, are Frisbees distributed internationally? Fine question.)
