11. Repeat for the middle of left side. Mark the fold only below and to the right of the intersection.
13. Turn the model to the other side.
14. Fold along the vertical axis that goes through the highest intersection of folds. Mark the fold only at the top until you reach diagonal fold.

18. Fold the top left corner to the intersection of folds.
19. Fold the top down to the bottom of the blue corner.
20. Fold the left right to the right of the blue corner.
21. Fold again all the unfolded folds, starting with the folds at the bottom right.
