This Star Wars papercraft is a B-Wing starfighter, one of the largest and most heavily armed starfighters/bombers in the Rebel Alliance’s fleet, the paper model was created by Sean Kelly. The scale of the paper craft is in 1:50.
The name B-wing came from the craft’s remote similarity in appearance to the lowercase letter “b”, although its swordlike shape in attack mode has earned it the nickname “blade-wing”, which may be another reason for the “b” prefix.
Known as “crosses” due to their distinct shape, the B-wing was designed by the Verpine company Slayn & Korpil in cooperation with then-Commander Gial Ackbar as part of the Shantipole Project. The B-wing, though difficult to fly, participated in numerous engagements across the galaxy during the latter parts of the Galactic Civil War, including the Battle of Endor and the liberation of Coruscant.
The B-wing was used in its primary role of assault starfighter by both the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance throughout the Yuuzhan Vong War and beyond. Later models included a two-man version that could be used as a small transport.
