massive growth in airigami

Welcome to the second issue of the Airigami Newsletter, where we attempt to keep you up to date with what is happening in the world of Airigami.

This month has been one of massive growth in the Airigami range of models. Only a month ago, there were only six different types of aircraft - now there are 42 distinct types. Only a month ago, there were only 29 models on offer - now there are 135. Previously, all Airigami models fitted on one website. That has also changed a little.

Due to certain capacity and bandwidth restrictions on our servers, Airigami has been forced to expand in a unique way, and so airlines are now divided between terminals. Terminal One hosts the original airlines on Airigami - plus some new ones added during June. Terminal Two, which was opened for business only a couple of weeks ago, will host many new airlines in coming months. Currently, Terminal Two serves Delta Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Japan Airlines and Icelandair as well as classic carriers, Australian Airlines and Impulse Airlines.

Part of the expansion has been due to the introduction of large aircraft. The entire Boeing 747 family is now represented, as are the 757, 767 and 777. Airbus' large jets are also featured as well as the Douglas-McDonnell Douglas family. Hopefully, the Lockheed L-1011 and Concorde will be added in coming weeks.

Airigami's smaller scale website should also be up and running within the next month or two. Airigami:480 will feature many of the current 1:240 designs in a smaller 1:480 scale.

I hope that Airigami continues to bring as much joy to others as it does to me.

James Messner, Airigami founder and designer

this month…

The great expansion - 106 new models, including large fleets from American Airlines, Continental Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, Air Canada, Air France, Southwest Airlines, Swiss Air Lines, Qantas, bmi British Midland, Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines.

The release of Airigami designs will be relatively random, however we welcome any requests from Airigami users who would like to see a particular aircraft or airline featured on Airigami. Simply e-mail us or go to our website and fill in the appropriate form describing what airline and/or aircraft you would like.

The Airigami concept, designs, pictures, content and website are all Copyright © James Messner 2002.

This does not mean that people are prohibited from using the blank templates and making their own designs. Just don’t claim it was your idea – and don’t profit from it. That would make you a bad person. We keenly await to be e-mailed designs created by Airigami users, and we also much anticipate receiving photos of fully constructed Airigami aircraft. We would like to feature such designs and pictures on our website.
