Martin Hunt started to make his own origami models while studying math at Southampton University. Eschewing traditional Japanese forms, he began replicating classic Star Wars space ships and fighters. He now has more than 20 creations derived from the blockbuster George Lucas film franchise.

Hunt shares some of his designs already through his website and on YouTube, but he’s taking his origami creations to the wider world. In October, he exhibited some large scale versions at the London MCM Expo and Comic Con and is seeking a publisher to release a book of diagrams for his designs.
