2013

OVERVIEW

Having completed my Lamborghini Aventador Hot Pursuit papercrafts in early part of 2013, I got an unsettling urge to build another big model, after a two year break since my 7ft Gundam project. The idea was to build a near-life-size replica of my Aventador Interceptor model, but small enough that I could get it out of my house. After proposing the idea to my wife, she dared me to it and the challenge was on!

For this project I experimented with new materials, new techniques, and larger prints than any of my previous papercraft models. The name Aventador A-E2 is derived from the Architectural E2 paper sheets used for the prints, mounted to thick chipboard material for added strength.

Overall I am very pleased with the final outcome of this experiment. I learned many new lessons and the artwork makes a great display on my wall. The completed model measures 8' x 3.8' x 2.1' (244 x 115 x 63cm), weighs 25lb (11.3kg), making it my biggest and heaviest papercraft model to date. ...Did I mention most expensive? The cost for printing and materials set me back $1,000, but the creative experience was well worth it.

Before building the entire car I built one wheel first to see if the new materials I used would work. It was a success!

    Just curious if you had a method of folding that works particularly well? I’m experimenting now on a rolling type crimper that will assist in the folding, but thought I’d as the expert first. Also, whats with all the land vehicles? No F14 fighter jet that I can hang from the ceiling, or Cobra helicopter? I’m active duty Marine Corps and would love to get something like that up in the office. Thank you.

    • Experiment and see what works best for you. I fold/bend paper using my hands, crimpers, edges of my desk, rulers, tubes, etc. I’m planning to design other types of models, not just cars, as time permits.

    must have put in a lot of hard work.huh!Wish i could do that.

  20. Suraj

    but we don’t get those prints in India.

  21. Josh

    Wow, if you cut off the top, I can probably fit in!

  22. Jack

    Can you print paper car like these?

  23. Bailey

    Just wondering what the biggest bid is so far?
