Paper Formula 1 car by Iardacil Paper Formula 1 car by Iardacil
So this is what I have been doing last week and couple of days more.. How to turn three pages of a4 of tiny pieces into this... 2007 Formula 1 McLaren Mercedes.. if be more precises.. Alonso's car.. for the number one..

To be honest - it was crazy.. I think if I have had it in a3 or larger.. it would have been ok.. but like this.. it is less than 20 cm long.. and those tint details - suspension, aerodynamics .. wings and pieces here and there.. and ofcourse I did not realized at the first that I have to make some cuts on the paper before clewing it together.. so I had that kind of air acrobatics to manage to cut in and not broke the model.

But I am so happy with it.. not too good I know.. but it was my first.. I have 2000 Jordan too.. so lets hope it comes out better..

Just happy with it.. :) ah..

Hi, I create P.O.D's and was actually about to propose to a client a full scale model (without an engine of course) of the same car. I live in third world i.e no access to f-1 cars. So if my object is to actually be moved freely then my detailing of mechanical components has to be real(I intend to fit the prop with real world wheels and gauges...). could you please share some real close up photos of the suspension system and especially the rear region of the vehicle?

I totally agree on that.. If I had BMW I would have made it.. I only found McLaren.. I wish I had BMW Sauber.. and Kubica is my favorite driver..

I never knew they made such intricate paper F1 models.
That looks like a lot of fun - great job.

I used to go to Montreal to watch the F1, but I've not done that for some time. It is quite an experience - if you ever go to an F1 race, be sure to bring some ear-plugs. :)

E-he.. I live in place where there is no races close.. I think hungary or germany is probably the closest.. but that is long way off.. who knows.. when they build track in Poland or in Finland.. maybe then.. :P But Montreal.. I love the track there.. always something happening.. and I imagine it can be stunning expirience..
