Star Wars the Force Awakens is pretty much one week away at this point and because I love Star Wars and am quite excited for the new movie I’m going to make a couple of posts about Star Wars origami.  There are a lot of awesome Star Wars origami models out there.

This post is all about the vehicles and ships from Star Wars and we’ll get started with some Rebel Alliance ships.

First up is this fantastic Income T-47 Snowspeeder by Martin Hunt.  Yes I’m a pretty big Star Wars nerd.

If you’ve been paying attention to the trailers for the Force Awakens you probably noticed that there’s a new design for the Resistance X-Wings with different interlocking wings.  Another excellent origami Star Wars ship designer Shu Sugamata designed this awesome Resistance X-Wing and managed to get the new wing design perfect.
