  1. oh man at 12:05, when you pull the top of the triangles on top of the triangles, those are kind of hard for me >.< It doesn't go on top the way I wanted and my paper rips if I use force. lol my balloon looks so worn out

  2. Instead of him spending ages modifying/designing a model, uploading a tutorial, editing it, draw the diagrams and translate the video just because one person can't complete the model why don't you try something within your experience/skill level.

  3. Awesome tutorial! love it! liked! Hey Jo, I have a question, Have you ever folded a Ryujin 3.5 or 2.1? if you have, then please upload it on your flickr. Cause i'm making one right now! Wish me luck! 😀

  4. Loved it! easy and challenging at the same time and DEFINITELY time-consuming…! But Great tutorial anyway 🙂

  5. Great design, beautiful #origami   #balloon  but I can only watch it I am afraid…I am not that bold! ^_^ The designer of this is brilliant and the folding sensei too! #advancedorigami

  6. I spent all day on this piece of crap. sorry for my angry language but its sooooo hard and to all those people that choose to make this, just keep in mind that the paper he is using is very easy to fold. any other paper will be too hard to fold

  7. so really amazing hands!! wonderful!! thanks for sharing
    Can you tell me the final size from the paper of 40×40?

  8. GUYS, I KNOW A LOT OF YOU RIPPED IT AT THE END, SO TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING, YOU CAN PUT A TINY LITTLE BIT OF GLUE ON THE TOP POINT BEFORE YOU INFLATE IT. PUT A REALLY SMALL AMOUNT SO IT DOESN'T PREVENT THE MODEL FROM INFLATING.

  9. ooh nice!! could you please tell us if it flies though? bc idw to waste effort folding only to find out that it doesn't ahaha. tysm! 🙂
