This model was designed as part of a duo for Valentines day, the Love Startship and the Doubt Infection Fly were released together in a premium set on the Fold Up Toys store.
A simple story unfolds between distant worlds, the heart shaped Love Starship is on an urgent mission to spread love and respect across the galaxy, but danger awaits behind every asteroid in the dark depths of uncharted space. Out of nowhere a Doubt Infection Fly attacks, latching onto the ship attempting to inject a seed of doubt into the heart of the brave pilot. Using all manor of evasion manoeuvres proves unfruitful as the bio-mechanical monstrosity uses its six powerful legs to grip onto the Love Starship. How will this story unfold, only you can decide by building your own adventure!
Both models feature advanced paper engineering techniques and clean, minimal textures. Both models consist of a single piece on a single A4 page (the Starship comes with an optional display stand).

Print the model onto paper or card, Fold Up Toys recommends a 250gsm card stock for best results, however all models on the Fold Up Toys website should work perfectly well on standard A4 printer paper.

3 – Cut
Cut the model out along the solid outline, some models will have sections that need to be cut with a craft knife, younger builders are recommended to get help from an adult.
4 – Fold
Follow the key on the models flat template, folding up or down along the dotted lines as instructed. Some model builders like to score along the fold lines (go over the lines in advance) with a craft knife or empty ball point pen to get a more precise fold.
5 – Glue
Most models have numbered tabs, glue the tabs in order to complete the model. If you get stuck, feel free to message the designer using the contact page with a photo of what you’re working on and they’ll be happy to help you.
