Accessories available separately

express purpose of creating one or
more paper model(s) of the MFP, and nothing
more . [Feel free to make up and/or submit
additional parts! -ed.]
Parts 1 to 6 are the first parts to put
together . They make up the main core of the ship
The end caps ( parts 3 and 4 , picture
2) are reinforced because a lot of things
get glued to it . The tabs for
the holes on the side of part 2 get
folded all the way back and glued down for
Glue the two center rings on, but not
the two outer rings ( picture 3 , part
Look at picture 4, Aline the parts
! Slide the parts together (It helps to
clean up the ends of parts 5a and 5b ).
Glue the tabs inside part 1 and
then put the outer rings on (picture 5).
Glue down all the small flaps (picture
Then glue down all the big flaps (picture
Glue on part 8 (picture 8) , one (part 8) on
each end . Now you have the main core finished
Glue parts 9 to 14 like in picture 9 and 10
Glue the edges (parts 15a and 15b , picture
11) , and adjoin with newspaper tabs
(see picture 12) . Then glue the tabs of
parts 15a and 15b down over the newspaper,
creating strong straight edges.
The folds on part 16 are inverted (folded
towards the printed side) . Part 16 fits
inside part 17 . When gluing part 17 to the main
core , the dark side goes towards the center
(picture 13) .
Picture 14 shows the placement of the parts 9
to 17 . Look at picture 22 ,it's a front view
.There are more reference pictures at the bottom
of these instructions .
The next few pictures are of the gun turret
The first 4 parts are toothpicks cut to size
( 2 of each size ) and colored black (picture 15 ,
parts 18a and 18b). I used a felt tip marker to
color them . Picture 16 show the two guns ,
use the larger toothpicks (parts 18a , picture 16)
for the gun barrels .
The two smaller toothpicks (parts 18b ) make
the gun support . Glue them together , then
glue part 20 around the end (picture 17) . Picture
18 didn't turn out so good , sorry .
This is all the parts that make up the gun
turret assemblage (picture 19) . When gluing
DO NOT GLUE the gun support (parts 18b & 20)
to anything , everything pivots on this part .
Picture 20 shows several shots of the
assembled swiveling gun turret .
Look at picture 14 for placement of the gun
Small parts , sorry about this .
There are two parts 23 , one goes on the
front and one goes one the back . Parts
24 go on the front only
The solar panels , make two , one
for each side .
Don't use white glue to glue part
25 (picture 23), it warps real bad . A glue stick
seems to work well .
Glue part 26 around 5a/5b to fit it (picture
24),but DON'T GLUE IT ON ! It needs to
be removable .
Glue parts 26 down on to part 25 (picture 25)
. Don't glue the ship to the solar panel , it's
Parts 27 and 28 (picture 26) , fold the tabs
around the outside edge , all the way back
and glue down , to reinforce the short sides
.Then glue the edges of the short sides .
Remove solar panels from the main core ,
and glue on parts 27 to each panel (picture
Last part ! . Part 28 , glue it on and
you got your ship .
This is how it should look .
