Fold and unfold the two diagonals. Turn the model to the other side, and rotate by 45 degrees. Fold the top right and the bottom right towards the horizontal axis. Fold the left tip slightly towards the right. Unfold the two right flaps. Fold the top left and the bottom left towards the horizontal axis.

Fold the bottom of the model over the top of the model. Fold the tail. Start the fold in the middle of the right top side, and fold so that it touches the tip of the flap. Unfold the tail and open the model. Invert the tail fold at the bottom and fold again the top fold. Fold the model in two again. Fold the right tip towards the left, slightly upwards. Unfold the fold you just made and open the flap. Invert the fold of the tip and fold it inside the model. The tip is on one side and the model is not completely symmetric.
