I believe I can proudly say this is the world's first Star
Wars Origami figure ever made from an equilateral triangle. The figure is
a fairly simple one based on the origami classic figure of a lily flower except
using a three sided "square". The petals became the wings and the bulb became
the fuselage. I think I had 5 "final" versions of it before I stopped tweaking
the design. I'll probably improve it again some day when it's raining and
the television is broken.
The tri-fighter was a short ranged
fighter used mostly for fleet support by the Separatists during the Clone
Wars. The central fuselage housed a medium laser, a droid brain, and a compartment
for ordinance, such as buzz droids or dumb bombs. Its power plant was more
advanced than that of the older vulture droidfighter. Surrounding the fuselage
were three wings each armed with a laser cannon and 1 or 2 missiles. The tri-fighter
was the last generation of droidfighters.
