Having been blown away by seeing this thing at Tokyo Auto Salon, I wanted to write another blog post related to it.
By now I think we all know how incredible the cardboard GT500 NSX project turned out. For those of you who saw it in person, it was especially amazing when placed next to other Super GT cars. From a distance it literally fooled me and had me thinking it was a real car that just looked “a little unusual”. For a fan at heart like me, I’d love to one day own a 1:1 cardboard replica like this! But for now, I’ll just dream of having enough space at home to be able to own something like this.
The other day my friend Raul send me a link to Epson Japan’s website. It turns out that you can download 30 or so free PDFs to make your own model car! The PDFs give you the layout you need to create your own 1:24 paper car. They have some pretty awesome cars to choose from I might add!
Here’s an example (sheet 1 of 2):

It might not be as cool as a 1:1 car but it’s at least something you can do at home if you’re into that sort of thing.
