Lotus have come up with a great idea for the August break – they’ve produced a ‘Build your own E20’ kit.
You need six sheets of paper or card to make one and can get the kit on their Facebook page:
I’ll have a go myself if I find time – if you’re making one do post a picture of your efforts below, remember you can embed images on this page via Flickr.31st July 2012, 17:13 at 5:13 pm #206269MazdaChrisParticipant

I have a Physics II final tomorrow, but after that, I’ll give it a go! :D I love papercrafts!1st August 2012, 1:18 at 1:18 am #206271CarlitoxParticipant
I’ll try it, it’ll be my first papercraft should I succeed, heh. Will look nice between my diecast models of the Ferrari 642 and F310 ;)1st August 2012, 11:09 at 11:09 am #206272Keith CollantineKeymaster
If, like me, you can’t be bothered with Facebook, here’s a direct link to the PDF:1st August 2012, 12:54 at 12:54 pm #206273AnonymousInactive

Big Thanks for the non-FB-Link ! Great stuff for the summer break, now i’m only missing a proper papermodel of Kimi ;D1st August 2012, 19:33 at 7:33 pm #206275
@andy2k12 A friend of mine did this one designed by Bruno Mantovani (the guy from Pilotoons): https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/2312178842/1339817216699.jpg :P3rd August 2012, 3:02 at 3:02 am #206276
I’ve started it. I thing is clear: it’s damn daaaamn difficult!
For anyone interested, I’d give you one tip. If you cannot do the 3rd step, the nose bit (parts 30, 33, 34, 13 and 2), you cannot do the whole thing! Try doing that first. If you suceed, then keep going!3rd August 2012, 18:58 at 6:58 pm #206277andy2k12Participant
@fer-no65 that Kimi-pilotoon is soo cool ! …and thanks to google, i instantly found the papermodel-kit of this one too. Now i hope i can get some nifty results in the summerbreak with my beginner papercraft-skills =)3rd August 2012, 19:30 at 7:30 pm #206278Bradley DowntonParticipant
Absolutely agree with @fer-no65
The 3rd step is so difficult, it’s very strangely done as well… still, it was meant to be a project to last the whole summer break.
Anyway, when my printer did it first time, it was low on black ink, so having now purchased a new black ink cartridge I will print another, use this first one as a test and make sure the other one is perfect. I may also post picture updates, so people can look at them if they get stuck!
By the way, what are other people using, I’m using double sided sticky tape to hold it together, but I keep sticking to it…3rd August 2012, 20:55 at 8:55 pm #206279
@bradley13 Yeah, very crazy they got all the nose into 3 very big pieces. The main one is very thin at the nose tip, and very very hard to glue. I couldn’t do it. But as I was doing a prototype (I only had black ink in my printer), I’ll try again later.
Btw, the guy who did the instructions should also burn in hell. They could’ve made it better…
I was using a UHU stick. It’s the best glue I’ve found, as adhesive tape is a nightmare and other adhesives are too wet and tend to crease the paper.
@andy2k12 he made a Senna one too (which I built) :P. It’s quite cool and easy to do!4th August 2012, 11:16 at 11:16 am #206280andae23Participant
I started tinkering last evening and I have to say, I’m not overly impressed with the progress I’m making. I just finished step 3, which has been very annoying, but now it’s finally starting to look like a car:
The front suspension is looking a bit pathetic I think…4th August 2012, 13:07 at 1:07 pm #206281andae23Participant
By the way, I just noticed that at the last step (six) the right front tyre isn’t attached; ????? Maybe they are giving away Lotus’s tactic for next race?4th August 2012, 15:22 at 3:22 pm #206282
