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 suggest you to google the car. Internet is full of great close-up/details images
