Star Wars Rogue One X-Wing Printable Craft
Update 5/3/2017: It's "May the 4th be with you" and I'm celebrating by sharing this free x-wing printable, and boy has the "resistance" come out in full force over the last few months, not only am I showing my love for Star Wars but I'm showing my support for the resistance against our newest administration as well. I want to live in a world where the truth matters and where we teach our children that there is a difference between right and wrong, and that no matter what we should always choose what is right!
The rebel alliance has assembled and it's time for the resistance to begin. Fight the good fight against the Empire and bring justice to the galaxy with the help of the X-wing. This papercraft will surely blast you into a galaxy far, far away!
Ok, so this design is probably my most detailed of all of my papercrafts so far, but it still is only 5 separate pieces, with a bit of determination and patience you could put this rebel, stormtrooper crushing cruiser together too! How cool would this be to have as a hanging decoration in your son or daughter's Star Wars themed room, I know I would, and best part is this download is free. Putting it together is pretty self explanatory but I will try my hardest to describe it to you in the directions below.
Besides being a huge Star Wars fan, I wanted to create this papercraft as a symbol and reflection of the state of our country. To compare our state of being to a movie does seem super silly, but I do believe in the power of storytelling and I do believe that great stories are inspired by true life in the first place. I've always found so much truth in the notion of good vs. evil and the journey our beloved heroes go on to triumph over it. The success of a protagonist gives us all hope that good will conquer all, and if they don't exactly succeed, well then there's always going to be someone with the courage to challenge what isn't right.
I'm not saying that what we face is the doing of one man but it's the bigger picture we face, suppression, being told what we should believe, losing our freedom to be free thinkers and make decisions for ourselves. These are the evils we face and it starts by educating ourselves and educating each other. Don't rebel for the sake of rebelling, do it because you are passionate about finding the best solution by doing it with the best attitude, by doing it with compassion, strength and knowledge. Fight for what's right, because there is such a thing as right vs. wrong and we all have to start choosing to just do what's right.

Step 1. Be sure to print out the wings twice so that you have four in total. Start by cutting out all of the pieces, there's a total of 7.
Step 2. Next make score lines on all of the flaps and dotted gray lines, use your craft knife or the corner of a credit card to score the lines.
Step 3. Start by glueing the flaps towards the back of the body of the X-wing to the 6 sided black shape which is the back panel. Add the separate two panels next.
Step 4. Bend the longer side panels around and glue them to the matching flaps.
Step 5. Fold the wings on the dotted lines and overlap them evenly, glue them together along the end.
Step 6. Glue the wings to the sides of the X-wing.
