I ended up using foam board for this, because I had some lying around, but I definitely don’t recommend it. It’s messy and doesn’t cut well, so it leaves the edges of the Falcon wings all jagged. I’d recommend just using regular cardboard instead. As an alternative you could also use poster board. Your Falcon wings will be thinner and bendier, but you’ll also be able to cut a section for each joint of the ruler, instead of having to use two joints for each piece, and then you’ll be able to fold them up even smaller that way. You’ll also want to cut your wings at a higher angle than I did. I cut mine too straight across the top, so the finished Falcon wings ended up looking a little flat.
The folding ruler I used is an old one I found out in the barn, but I looked it up on the internet, and I think I found the same one here on Amazon.
