Folding tips

Folding instructions listed here can be classified as folding tips: they are sometimes by themselves not enough to fold a model without extraneous instructions, but they can provide additional information or explain just the more difficult parts. In this section are also listed purely textual folding instructions which don’t have any accompanying pictures.
