Step 4. Fold topleft, right corners into the centre and unfold them.



Step 5. Fold top corner of model downwards, crease and unfold.

Step 6. Open the uppermost flap of the model, bringing it upwards and pressing the sides of the model inwards at the same time. Flatten down, creasing well.

Step 7. Turn model over and repeat Steps 4-6 on this side.




Step 8. Fold top left and right flaps into the centre.




Step 9. Turn model over and repeat on other side.
